About Sonia

I have a genuine love for teaching and learning that has led me to earn my Ph. D. in chemistry and teach at the university level,. I graduated summa cum laude and understand the benefits of hard work and preparedness in academia. I was actively involved in tutoring and mentoring throughout my academic career in high school, college, and graduate school. I have received excellent teaching reviews from my students both as a tutor and as an instructor, for which I won the John S. Swenton Teaching Award from Ohio State University. I truly enjoy helping students grasp and master concepts that lead to improved performance in school.

A strong math foundation is key to be successful in many areas of study including business, engineering, the physical sciences, and the life sciences. I have an excellent background in math and am motivated to help students succeed in building core math skills. I am flexible in adapting to each students' needs and learning methods while providing structure and organization to each lesson.

I earned my Ph.D. in organic chemistry and taught general chemistry, organic chemistry, and advanced organic chemistry courses at the university level. I have extensive experience tutoring high school and college students in chemistry and have a true passion for teaching. While my graduate degree is in chemistry, my undergraduate degree is in biochemistry and I believe I have a multifaceted approach to teaching science.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to hear more about me and my background. I look forward to hearing from you and hope to help you succeed in your academic endeavors!

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 earned my Ph. D. from Ohio State University in organic chemistry. I have tutored and taught organic chemistry lecture and laboratory courses extensively. I was a chemistry professor at Denison University and taught organic, general, and advanced organic chemistry courses.

She is incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, encouraging and easy to reach. She was able to explain all concepts clearly and make sure I understood them by coming up with practice problems. She also provided me with practi ...
