About Andrea

While I was in high school, college, and graduate school I was a peer mentor and leader, tutor, and afterschool mentor in the STEM fields. I enjoy communicating my love of science and math and realize that every student learns differently. This passion developed into a part time position while I was pursuing my Ph.D. in Nanoscale Science, where I was able to assist the outreach coordinator in a variety of mentoring programs and STEM initiatives.

After receiving my Ph.D. in May of 2014, I continued on as a Research Scientist at my institution and continue to take every opportunity that I can to mentor. One of my most memorable activities was a LEGO Mindstorm robotics sumo wrestling challenge. Not only did I learn something new, but I was overjoyed with the positive effect this activity had on each and every student.

As I said, I completely understand that not everyone learns in the same way. I am easy to talk to and believe that I have the ability to communicate science and math efficiently but also simply. I remember feeling overwhelmed myself when I was younger in school so I can related to the need for extra help outside of the classroom.
