About Meg


Bio

Chemistry can be a challenging subject for many students due to the conceptual nature of the material. However, once it has been mastered, it can be fun. I am a firm believer that there are no "stupid" questions. Instead, it is a matter of students not completely grasping the material and I encourage them to ask as many questions as necessary until they understand the concepts being covered.

Chemistry can be a challenging subject for many students due to the conceptual nature of the material. However, once it has been mastered, it can be fun. I am a firm believer that there are no "stupid" questions. Instead, it is a matter of students not completely grasping the material and I encourage them to ask as many questions as necessary until they understand the concepts being covered. My goal as a tutor is to help students understand how chemistry relates to their lives since introductory courses can come across as boring.

I like to use analogies to help explain difficult concepts, and I try to lead students to discover the answer on their own rather than simply providing them with answers to the problems they are working on. Sometimes this will require backing up to review a concept covered earlier in the class in order to master current material. My objective is for students to understand the "why" aspect of the subject instead of simply memorizing facts. If students understand how a concept works, they can apply that knowledge to related problems and solve them on their own, which leads to greater understanding of the subject and fewer mistakes on quizzes and exams.

I have taught and tutored general chemistry & organic chemistry for more than ten years. Unlike most tutors, I have worked as a practicing research chemist for ~25 years. In addition I am a licensed chemistry teacher, having completed my student teaching in a college prep chemistry classroom. This unique combination means that I KNOW the subject area, can RELATE concepts to "real world" applications, and UNDERSTAND how to help students improve their mastery over the subject. I can also help students with their lab-related questions since I am a practicing research chemist.

Chemistry

Chemistry

Chemistry is a challenging class for students. It is a mostly conceptual subject that involves the study of atoms and elements and how they combine to form molecules and how they react. I have been tutoring Chemistry students for more than five years, from high school (both college prep and AP Chemistry classes) up through college chemistry and know what the teachers are wanting students to master.

Organic Chemistry

Organic Chemistry

I have been a practicing organic chemist for 20 years and have taught both Organic Chemistry classes and laboratory work. I can explain "how" reactions occur and why they are useful in real life situations. I can also help students with the lab portion of the class.

Knowledgeable, patient, and supportive

Meg was amazing! She took extra time to explain things and shared the whiteboards. She was patient and creative. She is clearly knowledgeable and experienced. Thank you so much!

Satisfied Mom

Great tutor!!! Responsive to study needs, nice person, super smart and knowledgeable. Really appreciate the time she took with my daughter for last minute studying for the final. Highly recommend Meg!

Tara Rose, 3 lessons with Meg

Super helpful

Meg helped me a ton in Organic Chemistry. We had multiple sessions and she always came prepared with information to help and problems to work through. I would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for some extra help in a chemistry course.

Knowledgeable, patient, and caring tutor

Meg is awesome! Meg is patient and has helped me tremendously understand my work and the concepts. She has a great command for Chemistry and is very thorough.

Rhaigan, 37 lessons with Meg

Very helpful!

In about 30 minutes Meg was able to explain the concepts my daughter was struggling with. She said that it made more sense to her than how it was explained in class. We are very happy.

Tonya, 13 lessons with Meg

Adaptive, effective and responsive tutor

Meg has been very helpful in working with my son and engaging me along the way. She is a caring tutor who wants to see your child succeed. She has been very effective in teaching chemistry and trying to motivate my son in the process. She always follows up and also sends the lesson's white boards as a means of reinforcing the lesson. My son is very happy to work with Meg and I am grateful for her help too!

Love Meg!

Meg breaks things down step by step so that you understand what is happening and why. When I try to do Organic Chemistry on my own I get so overwhelmed and frustrated but with Meg things make sense. Sessions with Meg make me feel more confident and prepared.

Cynthia, 19 lessons with Meg

Great, very flexible

She really knows her stuff and easy to connect with. She works in the field and has a graduate degree in teaching. Great combination. I would definitely use her again.
