About Thea


Bio

For the past 6+ years I have been teaching general chemistry at private, state, and community colleges and have worked with a diverse population of students. Every student is unique, and with one-one tutoring I love that I can tailor my approach to you and your needs specifically. As an instructor, I am familiar with the types of questions that are typically asked on exams (yes, I write new exams each semester!), as well as the concepts students tend to struggle with the most. I look forward...

For the past 6+ years I have been teaching general chemistry at private, state, and community colleges and have worked with a diverse population of students. Every student is unique, and with one-one tutoring I love that I can tailor my approach to you and your needs specifically. As an instructor, I am familiar with the types of questions that are typically asked on exams (yes, I write new exams each semester!), as well as the concepts students tend to struggle with the most. I look forward to sharing problem-solving approaches that will lead you toward success.

I have been tutoring and teaching math, science, and music for almost as long as I can remember (starting in 5th grade!). I am patient, kind, and strive to bring simplicity and ease to understanding and mastering chemistry concepts. Most importantly, I truly believe that you, that anyone who sets out to do so, can make it through their general chemistry course successfully, and I will help give you the tools to do so.

If you are taking general (“first-year”) chemistry or are a high school chemistry student, then I am so glad that you are reading my bio and have mustered up the courage to reach out for support with developing proficiency in chemistry. I want to help you reach that goal! Why? Because I know that you have the determination and mindset to be successful. I also know that uncomfortable sensation of sitting in class and feeling completely lost—I have been there too.

I hold a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from Northwestern University and have 7+ years experience teaching chemistry-related courses at the college-level. These courses have included first and second semester general chemistry, preparatory chemistry, environmental chemistry, and several others. Prior to this I worked as a teaching assistant while pursuing my undergraduate and graduate degrees.

I look forward to meeting you and working with you toward success with chemistry! Please schedule one of my open slots, or reach out for additional times to better fit your schedule
