I specialize in tutoring SAT Math and English as well as ACT Math, Science, and English to help students excel in taking these tests. I also specialize in subject tutoring across a myriad of Math and Science subjects. From Algebra 1 through Trigonometry, I can help students gain a new and better understanding in math. My real passion, however is the sciences. I love to teach Chemistry, Biology, and Biochemistry. I studied sciences throughout my time as an undergraduate and graduate student as well as teaching collegiate level Biology labs while obtaining my graduate degree and I immensely enjoyed sharing my passion with my students. My true hope is to help each student achieve the love of academics I have and share in the exhilaration of academic success.

I excel at finding new and engaging ways to explain difficult concepts to students by focusing on the students' hobbies and passions. I thoroughly enjoy taking the time to get to know you so I can find real world examples and techniques to better demonstrate tough concepts.

I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy, but I am willing to schedule make up sessions as needed as I am flexible with my schedule.

I am happy to have my students come to me or we can find a neutral location that works for both parties. I emphasize being comfortable and calm during tutoring so we can get the most out of our time.

Awesome tutor! — For the past month, I've been meeting every Tuesday and Thursday with Heather for SAT prep. I really needed to improve my scores so I thought that she would be the perfect person to do so. I met with her for an hour each visit, so time went by pretty fast!
