About Esther

Hi! I recently moved out to LA after completing my chemistry PhD at Princeton University and work as a Senior Chemist at a cosmetics company. I miss teaching, and am looking to tutor high school or undergraduate level chemistry.

I love relating chemistry to everyday life. I find helping my students have "aha!" moments and watching them start to love chemistry immensely fulfilling Additionally, having a personal relationship to chemistry, allows students to better relate the material to concepts they have never seen before. Working as a museum education intern at the Smithsonian last summer, during my PhD, allowed me to play with hands-on approaches to teach chemistry.

My previous tutoring experience spans includes tutoring chemistry for high school and undergraduate level students, during both undergraduate and graduate school. In the academic world, I was a teaching assistant for general chemistry for two semesters which involved going over and often teaching the material covered in lecture. I was also an instructor for a college level chemistry lab course.

I am available to tutor in Encino, Sherman Oaks, Northridge and local areas. If you are outside the area but are interested, please contact me to discuss how to potentially make it work!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chemistry

I have a PhD student in Chemistry from Princeton University and moved out to LA to work as a senior chemist in an industry position. I really miss teaching and am looking to continue sharing my passion for chemistry by tutoring high school or undergraduate level chemistry. I have extensive experience teaching and tutoring chemistry at both the HS and undergraduate level. Looking forward to hearing from you!
