About Margaret

I am a chemistry PhD candidate in my fourth year at Boston College graduate school. I conduct exciting, cutting-edge research in a materials chemistry laboratory. Since entering graduate school, I have been a general chemistry lab teaching assistant, physical chemistry II (quantum) teaching assistant, and advanced physical chemistry (graduate level) teaching assistant. I have been tutoring students since 2005 and have been able to help all levels, from elementary to high school to college-level, with a focus on chemistry and math.

I patiently break chemistry and math down for students so that they understand more completely the big picture and then I help them tackle the details so that they feel confident to work through their homework and exam problems on their own. My goal in tutoring students is to alleviate the anxiety that often arises when facing problems by supplying them with a step by step approach to arriving at the answer.

In my one-on-one tutoring sessions, I hope to inspire a joy for learning, if not chemistry and math!

Knowledgeable and Excellent Instructor — Maggie has been wonderful in explaining Chemistry lessons to my daughter. My daughter is a Junior in high school and this is the first year she has struggled with any type of science class, her Chem teacher does not explain the lessons in a manner that she can grasp and has had a difficult time getting through exams. Maggie has explained the lessons in a straight-forward manner and one in which my ...
