About Lydia

Hi! My name is Lydia, and I am currently a pharmacy student at UF's Jacksonville campus. I have a strong background in chemistry and I would love to help you develop a strong foundation in the subject too!

About Me:
I have a lot of experience teaching and tutoring in chemistry (described below), but first, let me tell you a little bit about myself: I am a bilingual (English and Spanish) Miami native with degrees from the University of Florida and Florida International University (both summa cum laude). I am currently enrolled in pharmacy school with a 3.97 GPA. My overall GPA in undergrad was 3.98 with a 4.0 in science courses. I also scored in the 99th percentile (overall and in chemistry) on the PCAT (Pharmacy College Admission Test), and I graduated in the top 4% of my class in 2004 from Coral Reef Senior High School's International Baccalaureate (IB) program--so I have the unique experience of both tutoring students in IB chemistry and completing the program myself!

Experience:
As for my experience, I have been a private chemistry tutor since 2012. I have experience helping both high school (regular, honors, IB and AP) as well as college students. Aside from private tutoring, I was a chemistry TA (teaching assistant) at FIU for two years. During this time, I taught the lab component of General Chemistry 1 and 2 (2013-2015) and Chemistry & Society (2013). I was also an Upward Bound chemistry instructor for high-school students in 2014, and I was a chemistry learning assistant at FIU for one year during which I helped develop the LA program for Survey of General Chemistry (chemistry for nursing students). Furthermore, I served as a volunteer tutor on campus as part of the CHEMPAL program for General Chemistry 1 and 2 for four years. I was also a General Biology 1 and 2 PLTL leader in 2010, in which I taught a supplemental course that reviewed key biology concepts.

Being able to help students learn chemistry brings me a great deal of joy and satisfaction. I can honestly say that I love what I do, and if you let me, I would love to help you develop a love for chemistry, too!

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 been involved in some sort of Chemistry education since 2009. I have served as a private tutor and TA in several Chemistry capacities.

Amazing tutor!

If anyone wants a young, patient, very helpful, and intelligent tutor, you have to pick Lydia. She responds back as quick as possible on the phone, and if you have small doubts, she will help you out. I have improved greatly with Lydia's help. My grades have gone higher in chemistry and I'm just more than happy to recommend Lydia to anyone who needs tutoring.
