##### About Liz

I developed a passion for teaching starting in high school. I had a chance to be a one-on-one tutor during my senior year and I also was a Teaching Assistant for general chemistry at different levels (honors level and lower). In college, I continued some teaching with summertime tutoring in math and physics, and during graduate school, I was a Teaching Assistant for two semesters in beginning civil/environmental engineering classes.

I have been told that I have a natural teaching ability by teachers, students, and peers. Nothing that I have done up until this point has given me the same happiness and satisfaction as when I am teaching. In particular, I really enjoy teaching students one-on-one because I enjoy teaching someone in the way that works best with their learning abilities and seeing them grow into better problem solvers and students.

I have a lot of experience taking math courses and teaching them as well. I know that sometimes math can be intimidating to students, but I like to tutor math because it is amazing to see how much joy the student gets once he/she has really mastered the topic. Math is very much like a puzzle, and what students need is the proper tools and strategies to approach these problems, and that's where I will be able to help.

Over the course of my academic career I have also taken many science courses. I have the most experience tutoring chemistry and physics, but there are other topics that I have taught as well. Similarly to math, taking the topic back to its building blocks and understanding the strategies and problem solving skills is where I can be of great help for students.

I am greatly looking forward to meeting with you and working together. I have a very flexible schedule so I am happy to work at times that are most convenient for you. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment!
