About Courtney

I am currently a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California Los Angeles in the chemistry department. I received my Ph.D. from Georgia Institute of Technology and my bachelor's from Emory University. I majored in chemistry and political science at Emory University, and my focus in graduate school was organic and analytical chemistry for most of my course work. My thesis research was physical polymer chemistry. During graduate school, I taught recitation and laboratory for general chemistry, laboratory for analytical instrumentation, and laboratory for quantitative analysis. My current research is in the area of surface science and I am making polymer films for battery applications. I am also involved with several synthesis projects to make new compounds.

My personal interests include sewing, cooking, and reading. I was the costume designer for two drama clubs during my undergraduate years, and I enjoy making my own clothes, costumes, and crafts as a hobby.

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.
