Hello,

I am a University of Virginia graduate with over 15 years experience teaching and tutoring. I majored in Biochemistry and Neuroscience, and I have taught and tutored in subjects as varied as Math (from all levels up to Multi-variable calculus/Linear Algebra), Chemistry (Organic, Biochemistry, Physical, and AP), Biology, Genetics, Physics, and Spanish from elementary school levels all the way up until college. I have also tutored extensively in test preparation as well, including TJ admissions test, SAT, GRE, MCAT, and others. I have tutored one-on-one in addition to teaching small group classes, and feel that this background makes me very qualified to teach individuals from a variety of age groups, ability, and handicaps in effective ways.

I love tutoring because of how rewarding the feeling is of helping students understand the material better and have a deeper appreciation of whatever it is they're trying to learn. It is deeply fulfilling for me to help a student pick up material that they were previously struggling with. I am a patient teacher, who likes to probe deeper understanding from my students by asking challenging questions and making sure to give as many practice problems as possible. I employ a wide variety of learning strategies to help students learn material including concept maps, mnemonic devices, drawings, charts, and others. I make every effort to ensure a student doesn't simply memorize answers to problems but actually acquires a deep understanding of their solutions and how to arrive at them.

I have tutored Math at all levels up until Multi-variable Calculus/Linear Algebra, attended TJHSST, and scored a 5 on the AP BC Calculus exam and A's in all my math classes. I have tutored math for over 12 years.

I majored in Chemistry and graduated with High Distinction from the University of Virginia, and have scored a 5 on the AP Chemistry exam. I also have extensive (10+) years tutoring chemistry of all kinds including Inorganic, Organic, and Biochemistry.

Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions, and I look forward to working with you soon!
