Please Note: I have recently started a new job, so I am only accepting new students that would like regularly scheduled lessons. Thank you for understanding!

I am a scientific professional with a PhD in chemistry and experience in many related STEM fields. I have hands on, classroom taught and self taught knowledge in the most advanced forms of chemistry including: physical chemistry (quantum mechanics, thermo and kinetics), inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, nuclear and radiochemistry, general chemistry, biochemistry and more. I also have moderate to advanced knowledge of physics, biology, and math concepts. Please inquire if you're curious about my skill in a topic!

I love watching my students understand new concepts and succeed in their classes! I have several years experience as a teaching assistant and as a private tutor, and I like being able to tailor the sessions to fit each student's needs. I am a life-long learner myself, and often learn new concepts or refresh old concepts with my students. STEM fields are constantly growing and evolving in their content and the way they're taught, and it's rewarding to be able to constantly learn new ways of teaching students instead of the boring, stale lessons that are usually taught in school.

Knowledgeable and helpful tutor

Kara taught me how to work through many organic chemistry problems such as resonance, Diels Adler and retrosynthesis. I understood everything and she worked through the problems slowly so I could fully grasp each concept, and she gave me extra tips and pointers for different types of questions.
