About Hilary


Bio

I am always looking for ways to share my love of science - be it volunteering at museums, performing demonstrations at science events, or simply exploring the answer to a friend's interesting question.

As corny as it sounds, my passion lies in rocks. They hold clues to the origin of our universe, not to mention valuable economic resources! Through keen observation and sound logic, we can piece together the history of an entire continent and hypothesize about its future.

I am always looking for ways to share my love of science - be it volunteering at museums, performing demonstrations at science events, or simply exploring the answer to a friend's interesting question.

As corny as it sounds, my passion lies in rocks. They hold clues to the origin of our universe, not to mention valuable economic resources! Through keen observation and sound logic, we can piece together the history of an entire continent and hypothesize about its future.

I am an experienced field geologist and published researcher. My undergraduate and graduate degrees are in the physical sciences (Geology). I have presented original scientific research at conferences and published in peer-reviewed journals. One of my papers received an award from the American Geophysical Union.

I can tutor in specific subjects within earth science, or general topics such as English, math, and reading, for elementary and college students. I am especially interested in helping you to improve your scientific and technical writing skills.

Drawing and painting are my favorite ways to relax. My pieces have been featured in art exhibitions. I have sold several paintings and even had a painting commissioned once! The subjects of my paintings are usually volcanoes, and my drawings are usually portraits.

I am looking forward to helping you improve yourself and reach your goals!
