I have a genuine love for teaching and learning that has led me to earn my Ph. D. in chemistry and teach at the university level. I have taught organic chemistry at UC San Diego, UC Irvine, and Cal State Fullerton. I graduated summa cum laude and understand the benefits of hard work and preparedness in academia. I was actively involved in tutoring and mentoring throughout my academic career in high school, college, and graduate school. I have received excellent teaching reviews from my students both as a tutor and as an instructor, for which I won the John S. Swenton Teaching Award from Ohio State University. I truly enjoy helping students grasp and master concepts that lead to improved performance in school.

A strong math foundation is key to be successful in many areas of study including business, engineering, the physical sciences, and the life sciences. I have an excellent background in math and am motivated to help students succeed in building core math skills. I am flexible in adapting to each students' needs and learning methods while providing structure and organization to each lesson.

I earned my Ph.D. in organic chemistry and taught general chemistry, organic chemistry, and advanced organic chemistry courses. I have extensive experience tutoring high school and college students in chemistry and have a true passion for teaching. While my graduate degree is in chemistry, my undergraduate degree is in biochemistry and I believe I have a multifaceted approach to teaching science.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to hear more about me and my background. I look forward to hearing from you and hope to help you succeed in your academic endeavors!

Great Tutor

Knew exactly what the major topics were, could answer very specific questions, sent problem sets and an exam (with answer keys) for practice, pleasant to work with.

Cari, 4 lessons with Sonia

Very knowledgeable!!

Sonia was able to step in very last minute and accommodate my daughter's needs. My daughter reported she was very helpful in explaining some problems she was having. Hope it will work out for them to work together in the future!!
