I am proficient in the biological and chemical sciences. I had a passion for the sciences in high school, in large part due to an outstanding chemistry teacher. I then went on to pharmacy school and graduated in the top 5% of my class. I tutored other students when I was in pharmacy school.

One of my strengths is the ability to explain concepts clearly and to draw analogies that make scientific concepts understandable. Another strength is the ability to break concepts into easy to digest pieces. My verbal communication skills are very strong and I can converse at the level of the student or audience. I believe that it is easier to learn when one understands the subject matter rather than just memorizing facts (although a certain amount of memorization is necessary in all disciplines). I also believe that repetition is key and I am willing to review concepts and topics until the student has a good understanding.

People tell me that I'm easy to approach and talk to; as a result another strength would be a student's comfort with my style. I am patient, as I know individuals learn at a different rate and have different proficiencies.
