I have a master's degree in chemical engineering from the University of Washington, Seattle. Upon graduation I joined one of the largest biopharmaceutical companies in the world as a scientist. After a rewarding five-year career, I decided to leave the industry to pursue teaching. I am passionate about utilizing my scientific and engineering background to help students appreciate the advantage of a strong STEM background in their careers and personal lives. I am experienced in teaching algebra (all levels), calculus (all levels), the ACT, SAT, and GRE.

As a teaching assistant at the University of Washington, I instructed and held office hours for classes of fifty students. The dean of the chemical engineering department has recognized my teaching performance. In my teaching reviews students have described me as: "always available," "she goes out of her way to help students," "knowledgeable," and "nice."

I think finding student’s learning style is key for successful tutoring. It demystifies the notion that the topic is hard, or that the student is lacking what it takes to master the subject. It empowers the students, gives them confidence, and helps them to see their own strengths. This is a complex and often difficult process, but rewarding for both the tutor and the student.

In my spare time I am writing my first literary fiction series, which will be published soon (I have been saying this for five years). I am an avid reader and regular horseback rider. I am hoping to have my own ranch with my own cattle and horses for my retirement.
