About Olivia

Hello! I'm glad you found me!

I love science. I love the idea that our world is a kind of puzzle, and that biology and chemistry are ways that we have found to help us put the pieces of that puzzle together.

But sometimes, I know that science can be more puzzling than anything else! If you feel that way at times, that's where I come in.

I hold a bachelor's degree with Honors in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. While in school I won several awards for my work in research, and I worked for the Chemistry Department as a Discussion Section Teacher for both an intro organic chemistry class and an intro biochemistry class. I have tutored secondary and university level chemistry and secondary level math in individual and group settings since 2013.

I am a really visual person. A lot of how I like to think about science is visual; sometimes, the best way to learn something is to learn how to tell it as a story. Whether that means building models of electronic orbitals, drawing pictures of proteins, or chatting back and forth about the flow of a metabolic pathways, our time together in a tutoring session will be interactive and dynamic.

My tutorees have been very successful, and my students have thrived. I hope to get a chance to meet you!

I tutor because I love teaching. I love sharing something I am so passionate about, and - hopefully! - our sessions will encourage you to continue to learn and explore.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Organic Chemistry

I took two semesters of organic chemistry (4-year university level), one of which was an advanced lab course. I was a teaching assistant for a 1 semester introductory organic chemistry class (4-year university level) where I was responsible for designing lesson plans to review the weekly course materials and prepare for exams. I independently lead a classroom of 5-12 people every week to expand upon and practice given lecture material.
