About Heather


Bio

My goal in tutoring is to facilitate a deeper understanding of science and math, in the hopes of encouraging a lifelong passion for the topics studied.

After graduating from Georgia Tech, I spent a year abroad teaching English, and have tutored in a variety of subjects since my return. Being employed in R&D and clinical research, I am able to bring a variety of real-world examples to the table, to inspire my students to dig deeper into the subject area.

After graduating from Georgia Tech, I spent a year abroad teaching English, and have tutored in a variety of subjects since my return. Being employed in R&D and clinical research, I am able to bring a variety of real-world examples to the table, to inspire my students to dig deeper into the subject area.

As a rule, I recommend that students bring their course textbook with them to our first session, in order to assess whether additional text resources may be needed as supplement. All I request is that your student be open to working hard and learning as much as they can.

I look forward to hearing from you!

For the last 7 years, I've acted as the tennis instructor for a camp for kids with diabetes. As a teen, I played tennis in leagues and in tournaments, as well as a year of junior college. My skills are more applicable to beginners and young learners, but I'm open to acting as a hitting partner for more advanced players.

Awesome tutor

Heather has worked with my daughter on AP Biology a few times and we can already see a difference... in her understanding of the subject matter and level of confidence in class. Heather is very patient and does a great job of breaking down the concepts. She takes the time to listen to my daughter, to understand where she needs help, so that she can target her lessons accordingly.

Great Tutor! Highly Recommend!

I am a college student at Georgia State in the nursing program and Heather has been working with me for the past year on multiple subjects. She has helped me with Anatomy and Physiology classes as well as Organic Chemistry and Microbiology. Heather has helped me achieve B's as well as A's in all of the subjects I mentioned. She makes a special effort to understand the way that I absorb the information for each subject and makes sure that I completely understand the concept before we move on to the next one. I have terrible testing anxiety and Heather makes sure that we review each exam after testing day to understand the questions I answered incorrectly and why I got them wrong so I can be ready for the next exam. She also knows from experience what professors like to ask about in a test and makes sure that I am extra prepared for the frequently asked questions. I would recommend Heather for any High School or College level student. She makes the effort to understand how you specifically absorb information and tailors the lesson to make sure you know what you are doing. If you are struggling in a class or just want to make sure that you excel in a subject then Heather will work with you to help you get the results you are aiming for!

Helpful and Knowledgeable

My son had five sessions with Heather. Heather is the "cream of the crop." He felt that her explanations and examples "made sense." In just a few short weeks his grade went from a D to a B! That, in itself, speaks volumes! We highly recommend Heather. A God send for our family.

Prepared and Knowledgeable

Heather tutored my daughter extensively on AP Physics 1 and some Pre-Calculus. My daughter raved about her. Not only was everything Heather told her was critical on the Physics test, but she (Heather) created notes during the session and turned them over to my daughter. What a great study guide! I highly recommend her. We will definitely be contacting her again.
