About Margaret

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.

I received my PhD from Boston College, conducting exciting, cutting-edge research in a materials chemistry laboratory. While in graduate school, I was a general chemistry lab teaching assistant, physical chemistry II (quantum) teaching assistant, physical chemistry I (thermodynamics) 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.

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

Maggie and my son went over a chemistry make up quiz that covered conversions. She explained concepts he had trouble with, pointed out his mistakes and showed him how to fix them. She was knowledgeable and very patient with him. My son was very happy with their tutoring session.
