About Lea

I have a BS from UC Berkeley, and a Master's from Columbia University in Chemistry. I really love this subject and how it can explain so much of the world around you. However, I know that it can be really challenging. Over the last 6 years as a tutor and TA, I have learned how to explain every concept in many different ways, because I know everyone learns differently. I have extensive tutoring experience, ranging from middle school to college. I have tutored math for 8 years, chemistry for 6 years, and Spanish and French for 10 years. I was a teaching assistant at Columbia in the Chemistry Department for 5 semesters, and tutored for a variety of classes at UC Berkeley as an undergraduate student.

I grew up in France and moved to California for middle school, high school and college. I really enjoy teaching and tutoring, and have myself been tutored - so I know how frustrating it can be not to understand a concept. I love being able to help and seeing that moment when a student can make sense of the material is so exciting.
