About Rachel

Since high school, chemistry has been one of my greatest passions. It is a beautiful science that I believe is important for understanding the world around us. However, it can also be a daunting and challenging science. My goal as your tutor is to help you not only understand the principles of chemistry, but to also have the tools to utilize them.

I graduated from college with my bachelor's of science in chemistry and a minor in physics. I participated in research on gold and silver nanoparticles and presented that research at the American Chemical Society's annual conference. I was a laboratory teaching assistant for multiple undergraduate laboratories and participated in the university's chemistry club and Women in the Field of Science club as their treasurer. My favorite part about being a TA and involved in the clubs was sharing my passion about chemistry with the students and helping them understand it better.

My degree in chemistry required math courses through calculus 3. Chemistry itself requires a strong understanding of algebra for problem solving, and I believe that I will be able to use my knowledge to help algebra and prealgebra students.

I have my bachelor's degree in chemistry with a minor in physics, so I am knowledgeable in all types of chemistry and the amount of problem solving, memorization, writing (for both laboratory and research), and experimentation it involves. I was also a laboratory teaching assistant for general, analytical, and organic undergraduate laboratories, so I am familiar with helping students understand chemistry.

I have a very open availability and will work closely with you to find a schedule that works for you. I am able to to help with lecture work and experimental work (laboratory notebooks, write-ups, etc.). I can also work with homeschoolers and their parents, helping with experiments or lessons.
