About Amanda

I started tutoring in college as a Chemistry tutor for the Math and Science Resource Center (now the Center for Learning and Student Success). My enthusiasm for the subject and reputation for helping students understand challenging concepts led me to be appointed as the Biology and Organic Chemistry tutor for the post-baccalaureate students in the Basic Core in Medical Sciences program at Temple. In addition, I tutored Spanish for the student athletes and taught them time-management and study skills.

I worked hard to be a good example to the students I tutored. I was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa national honors society and graduated Summa Cum Laude. I was granted three awards, including the American Chemical Society Undergraduate Award in Organic Chemistry and the Richard Asher Paclin Award for highest scholastic average in Chemistry.

Between undergraduate and graduate school I taught Organic Chemistry I and II lab, and in graduate school I taught General Chemistry I and II discussion. During graduate school I also trained an undergraduate and a post-doctoral associate in lab techniques used in our research group.
I recently defended my Master's thesis in Chemistry at Boston College. In lieu of further advancing my career I have opted to stay home and take care of my family. I have a wonderful husband (who was also trained as a Chemist but now works as a software engineer) and a very active 15 month old.

My goal as a tutor/teacher is to empower students to tackle learning fearlessly. I aim to provide a friendly, nonjudgmental, and comfortable environment where all questions are welcomed. I am happy to meet with parents and/or students to see if we are a good fit before making any commitments.

Although I was hired as a Chemistry tutor at Temple, all tutors were required to keep up with and tutor algebra and prealgebra.

Through my extensive experience in tutoring and learning Chemistry and Organic Chemistry I have learned what concepts students struggle with most and have built different ways of explaining these concepts to students so that every student can best understand challenging material.

I have a minor in Spanish and studied abroad twice in Spain....once in Oviedo and once in Alicante! I love to use my experience as inspiration for students not only to learn the language but also a little bit of the culture.

I look forward to working with you! Please feel free to contact me with any questions!

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.

Organic Chemistry

In undergraduate I was the Organic Chemistry tutor for the post-baccalaureate students in the Basic Core in Medical Sciences program. I also received the American Chemical Society Undergraduate Award in Organic Chemistry. I taught Organic Chemistry Labs I and II between undergraduate and graduate school. In both undergraduate and graduate school I took advanced Organic Chemistry courses including Organic Synthesis and Physical Organic Chemistry.
