About Betsie

Chemistry is occurring around us all of the time, and I love being able to learn more about the way the world works at the most basic level. It is a difficult combination of math and art where everything can be calculated to be true, but it is beautiful in that it explains the very nature of life! This reality has driven me to study Chemistry and apply it in multiple fields over the last 8 years.

I completed a B.S. in Chemistry with a concentration in Biochemistry degree with honors from one of the top 25 undergraduate universities in the country, Wake Forest University. Through my studies, I performed 3 years of Biochemistry research, studying the use of Click-Chemistry in determining a method to bio-mark aberrant kinase function. Upon graduating, I took a position at the University of Minnesota in the Cancer Research Center. In that position, I worked on a project linking biomarkers of tobacco use to different ethnicity's susceptibility to lung cancer. My work was published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention: "Variation in Levels of the Lung Carcinogen NNAL and Its Glucuronides in the Urine of Cigarette Smokers from Five Ethnic Groups with Differing Risks for Lung Cancer." Most recently, I've worked as an Environmental Specialist at Target Corporate.

I have tutored Chemistry for the last four years, and enjoy it thoroughly. My goal in my tutoring sessions is to equip my students with tools that allow them to master the difficult concepts presented in Chemistry.

I want to be pivotal in the education of the students I tutor, so I will not bill a lesson if you are not satisfied. Also, I am flexible with scheduling, but have a 36-hours cancellation policy. I prefer meeting in a coffee shop or public space, but will consider other locations on a case by case basis.

I look forward to being able to help you not only understand, but master all of your educational ambitions!

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 a B.S. in Chemistry with a concentration in Biochemistry from Wake Forest University. After graduating with honors, I have worked in product development/formulation chemistry at Ecolab, cancer research at the University of Minnesota, and environmental science at Target Corporation. I have experience tutoring Chemistry at the high school and college levels. I love helping equip students with the tools they need to understand the difficult concepts presented in Chemistry.
