I have several years of tutoring experience at the high school and undergraduate level and I am currently employed as a research and development chemist. The majority of my tutoring has been done in math and science, especially chemistry and physics, though I have also provided tutoring for writing and speeches. Reading, learning, and discovery are personal passions of mine and I love the experience of helping someone to grasp a concept that had been giving them trouble. As a recent college graduate, I am understanding of scheduling changes and I keep my sessions lighthearted so that they aren't completely serious and tedious!
