Hi! My name is Abbey, and I'm a fifth year Chemistry PhD Candidate at USC. My current research at school focuses on materials and electromagnetism. Through years of teaching and taking STEM courses, I've not only become proficient in these courses but gained the ability to simplify these challenging topics! I graduated cum laude from Florida State University with a degree in chemistry and a minor in math. As a third year, I have passed all of my graduate coursework as well as an extensive qualifying exam process.

Throughout my academic career I have always taken the lead in helping my peers study. I pride myself on my patience, not only in teaching but also with the course work itself. Some topics, especially STEM requires more in-depth understanding to be successful in the course. I began formally tutoring and teaching in my second year of undergraduate in 2010, as a teaching assistant in general chemistry. I continued teaching and tutoring throughout the rest of my career solely because I enjoy helping people and seeing others achieve academic greatness!

As a student myself I understand the struggle of balancing life, school and work, so I am able to relate to a lot of my clients. I found that this facilitates the learning process. I should mention that I have taken the courses in which I offer tutoring. I always look back at previous exams, assignments and course notes in order to refresh my understanding as well as remember the tricks I used to ace the course!

My method for tutoring generally consists of reviewing notes, and going over topics and problems until the student feels confident. I always try to think of a mnemonic device for troubling topics so students do not forget. If applicable to science, I always refer to real-world situations or student laboratory work so that the student is able to recognize topics other than a textbook.

I'm generally on USC's campus from 9-6 weekdays, so I am available to meet you on campus within or around those hours. On the weekends I am based in east central LA but am willing to meet you at a coffee shop or library! Please feel free to contact me about scheduling a tutoring session!
