About Phoebe


Bio

I was originally from Taiwan. I came to the U.S. when I was 13 years old. I double majored in biology and chemistry at University of California, Irvine and then went on to earn a PhD in chemistry at University of California, Berkeley. Following graduate school, I did a post-doc fellowship in the Biochemistry department at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

I was originally from Taiwan. I came to the U.S. when I was 13 years old. I double majored in biology and chemistry at University of California, Irvine and then went on to earn a PhD in chemistry at University of California, Berkeley. Following graduate school, I did a post-doc fellowship in the Biochemistry department at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

I have worked with students from kindergarten to high school by volunteering at my children's school. I did science activities and helped with math. I coached some 20 events in the school's Science Olympiad team over 10 years. I have also been teaching chemistry at a local community college since fall 2006. I have also been an online tutor for the last four years. I have also served as a science fair judge at local schools. I'm excited to tutor students.

I have been a mom foremost for many years. I just sent my youngest child to college last week. In my free time, I volunteer at a garden that supplies fresh produce to the local food pantry. I enjoy outdoor activities such as long distance running, hiking, and stand up paddle-boarding. I also love to read or listen to audio books.

I use graphs and pictures to help students understand concepts. I am passionate about science and scientific research. I want to encourage students to exceed in science and see how science is so relevant to everyday life.

I am excited to work with students and their parents to help students exceed in school and in life.

Extremely knowledgeable

Phoebe assisted me with grasping concepts on Dimendial Analysis. She was kind, very patient, and my anxiety level. I highly recommend her! Thank you! Ty K.
