About Lindsey


Bio

After going to grad school to do research in geochemistry, I ended up falling in love with teaching instead. After both teaching assistant and tutoring work, I taught high school science and math for 14 years, including Chemistry, AP Chemistry, Environmental Science, AP Environmental Science, Physical Geology, Forensics, and Statistics. During this time, I spent many hours providing extra help during free periods and after school, in addition to my hours in the classroom.

After going to grad school to do research in geochemistry, I ended up falling in love with teaching instead. After both teaching assistant and tutoring work, I taught high school science and math for 14 years, including Chemistry, AP Chemistry, Environmental Science, AP Environmental Science, Physical Geology, Forensics, and Statistics. During this time, I spent many hours providing extra help during free periods and after school, in addition to my hours in the classroom.
I am proud of my ability to simplify and explain complex scientific concepts using relevant analogies and real-world examples. I also love working with students to go through step-by-step analysis and explanation of analytical and mathematical problem solving. I can help students to build content knowledge, practice analytical skills, and learn how to study smarter and remember and be able to apply more...the first step is figuring out together what you know and what you don't know!
I have experience working with students with a variety of levels of previous subject knowledge and varied math skills. I have also worked with students with various learning differences to recognize their strengths and weaknesses to develop effective study skills and build confidence. My goal is that students not only understand what IS the right answer, but WHY it's the right answer, and feel able to solve the next similar problem they see.

I received my Bachelor of Science in Chemistry (with American Chemical Society certification) Magna Cum Laude and with Honors in Geoscience at Hobart William Smith College, where I was a member of Phi Beta Kappa. I completed a Masters of Science at the University of Virginia in Environmental Science, and then another Masters of Science in Science Education at Montana State University.
I taught AP Chemistry for 14 years, with average exam scores near 3.5 and around 80% of my students scoring a 3 or better on the exam. I have completed 3 AP Summer Institute trainings on the Chemistry curriculum as it has been updated in

Great AP Chem tutor!

I love working with Lindsey for Chemistry. She's helped me with AP Chem so much. She explains the concepts thoroughly and makes sure I understand them. She has extra examples of problems if I don't have any myself.

Erin, 8 lessons with Lindsey

great teacher

My daughter was happy with the approach, good explanation of problems and she understands the concepts better now. Will repeat as needed to solidify the foundations. Thank you!

Raizelle, 2 lessons with Lindsey

very helpful tutor

Lindsey was very responsive and reviewed the materials before she met with my daughter. She was very helpful in preparing her for her chemistry test. She was very patient and explained things that my daughter missed during class.

Excellent communication and effective tutoring my daughter in AP Earth Environmental science

My daughter found her session with Lindsey to be so helpful. She’s an excellent communicator and was able to explain the challenging content of Earth Environmental Science to her. We are continuing our sessions with Lindsey and so grateful to have found her. Thank you!

Great tutor

Lindsey is a great tutor. She is knowledgeable with the content of AP Environmental Science and able to explain the concepts and engage my daughter so that my daughter really understands the concepts. I highly recommend Lindsey

Knowledgeable and patient

Most competent, knowledgeable, reliable tutor. Lyndsey had the best tutoring tips. Brought light to difficult lectures and problems. I could not have passed geochemistry without her.

Aida, 20 lessons with Lindsey

Clear instructions

Our High school son said she Lindsey was clear and he was able to understand things that he had previously understood. Definitely worth it!! We will be coming back for more!

AMAZING

She went through an entire practice test with me for chem 112. She helped me understand every concept and she is very patient. Went to the session not knowing anything and came out ready for my test understanding everything. Definitely recommend.
