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.

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.

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!

I've played recreationally for the past 20 years, in both doubles and singles. As a camp counselor at a camp for kids with diabetes, I primarily managed tennis activities. 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.

Knowledgable and thorough tutor

Heather worked with my son in preparing for his quiz. My son loved the one on one attention and focused practice on problems. This is what my son found the most beneficial. Heather reinforced strengths and areas to work on that had been identified by his teacher just meeting him for the first time. She was great!

Knowledgeable and patient

Heather worked with my daughter on precalculus math. She assisted my daughter working through practice problems. Heather suggested additional problems for my daughter to work through, to prep for her next exam.

Very Knowledgeable and dedicated tutor

Heather continues to help my daughter improve in Chemistry and my daughter says she now understands many of the topics she did not understand during the school year and this is just 5 lessons in. Fantastic tutor!

Wonderful physics tutor

I am a student at Emory University and wanted a tutor for physics. Selecting a tutor is a little bit like rolling the dice--you never know what you’re going to get until you meet them and see. Reading reviews is helpful, but still you do to know if you will connect well and if their style will make the material clear and easier to comprehend. Heather was lovely and I am so glad I selected her. She is very knowledgeable and explains the concepts so well. I am so glad to have her help with this semester and future courses in this same subject. If you need help in physics, I highly recommend Heather!!!

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.

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.
