I am a certified chemistry (7-12) teacher in the Greater Philadelphia Area looking to share my excitement and passion for the sciences with students eager to learn outside of my school day classroom. In 2013 I graduated from Smith College with a BA in biochemistry with high honors, where I also served as a master tutor for chemistry classes and a teaching assistant in the laboratory sections. I am at my best when I am helping others realize their potential, and believe in the power of getting to know the needs of an individual and developing unique strategies to help students reach their academic goals.

While chemistry is my specialty, I am also confident in my knowledge and ability to tutor other high school science subjects and SAT and ACT prep.

I hold high academic expectations for all students I have the pleasure to work with and firmly believe that any student is capable of learning any subject.
