My name is Cindy, and I graduated from Wellesley College in 2007 with a degree in chemistry and from MIT in 2010 with an MS degree. I specialized in organic chemistry, but I am happy to tutor in other specialized fields or general chemistry at most levels. I have experience as a teaching assistant at MIT and in general tutoring (non-specialized, through an honor society in school). I have worked in laboratories in the fields of organic chemistry, medicinal chemistry, and materials chemistry both in academia and industry.

I love chemistry and want to share my passion with anyone who would like to learn about it. I am very patient and good at explaining things in different ways to try to make complex ideas more understandable. I believe in the importance of understanding the underlying principles in any system before trying to figure out the answers (or questions!) needed to solve it.

Please contact me if you'd like to learn Chemistry with someone who loves the subject and is eager to help!

Good luck!
