About Phoebe

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.
