I have been working as a teacher and tutor for over 8 years, and have a passion for education. I am currently working towards my Masters in Education and have experience in education ranging from public school classrooms to one-on-one tutoring. I have recently been working as a substitute science and math teacher at the high school level and have past experience in middle school science. I have vast experience in teaching chemistry and math to high school and university students, as well as writing, SAT prep, and general science.

My own education has been with a pre-medicine focus in chemistry and neuroscience, however my real interest is in pursuing a career in education. I enjoy teaching and have a real focus on working with students to help them gain confidence in their abilities and to excel in their subjects of interest and in their preparation for university or graduate programs. With science and math, many people struggle with core concepts and test-taking skills, and these are the areas I aim to strengthen.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss anything, I am always happy to help.

I am currently working towards my Masters in Education and have experience in education ranging from public school classrooms to one-on-one tutoring. After years of University and Graduate school, I have learned a great deal about writing formally and what is expected for students in terms of their English reading and writing abilities. I am also an avid reader, mostly of the classics, but I also stay up to date on multiple fields of research, so I am well versed in speaking both about literature and analyzing texts. I have a lot of experience working with High school and University students in English writing and reading.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I am currently working towards my Masters in Education and have experience in education ranging from public school classrooms to one-on-one tutoring. I have been tutoring algebra and geometry for over 5 years. I have had roughly 25 private students now in these subjects and am very comfortable and confident with the material. I enjoy these subjects because I find that with the right instructor, the material can make sense quite easily! I enjoy the challenge of taking a subject like math and helping my students to succeed - once a student realizes their potential in a subject like math, doors start to open up all around and their confidence grows greatly.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

I studied chemistry in my undergrad and have about 5 years of tutoring experience with high school and university students in the subject. I have also worked teaching chemistry at the high school level. I am currently working towards a Masters in Education from PSU with a credential to teach high school chemistry, so it goes without saying it is my favorite subject to help students with. I have lesson plans, worksheets, and methods to aid in my private lessons.

My Geometry qualifications are that of having successfully tutored geometry in the past as well as passing WyzAnt's qualification process.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

I have been working as an SAT prep tutor for about 3 years and have learned a great deal that relates especially to the math portion of the SAT. Because the subject matter is really quite basic for most advanced high school students, the real rigor of doing well on the math portion of the SAT comes down to working on problem solving techniques and working on test-taking techniques. Not only do I have exemplary grades in math from my own education, I have also been tutoring math for about 3 years with great results. The thing that qualifies me for SAT prep is the fact that I have experience and knowledge relating to working with these levels of math in a standardized test and test-prep setting.

Organic Chemistry

As a pre-med undergrad, I took honors Organic Chemistry for three terms and got straight A's. I was also a part-time workshop instructor for the subject.
Psychology

Psychology

I have a double degree (BS) in Psychology and General Science. This actually demonstrates the fact that after I finished my BS in Psychology and Minor in chemistry, I spent two years working in Neuroscience - as a paid teacher's assistant at Portland State U and also as a research assistant in an MRI neuroscience lab at OHSU medical school in Portland, Oregon. As far as Psychology goes, I have exemplary grades in the subject and have a great deal of experience working with students in the field as well as some experience working in the actual field as well. Psychology in general includes a great deal of work in Statistics and problem solving, areas that I am very comfortable teaching.
