About Heather

I specialize in tutoring SAT Math and English as well as ACT Math, Science, and English to help students excel in taking these tests. I also specialize in subject tutoring across a myriad of Math and Science subjects. From Algebra 1 through Trigonometry, I can help students gain a new and better understanding in math. My real passion, however is the sciences. I love to teach Chemistry, Biology, and Biochemistry. I studied sciences throughout my time as an undergraduate and graduate student as well as teaching collegiate level Biology labs while obtaining my graduate degree and I immensely enjoyed sharing my passion with my students. My true hope is to help each student achieve the love of academics I have and share in the exhilaration of academic success.

I excel at finding new and engaging ways to explain difficult concepts to students by focusing on the students' hobbies and passions. I thoroughly enjoy taking the time to get to know you so I can find real world examples and techniques to better demonstrate tough concepts.

I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy, but I am willing to schedule make up sessions as needed as I am flexible with my schedule.

I am happy to have my students come to me or we can find a neutral location that works for both parties. I emphasize being comfortable and calm during tutoring so we can get the most out of our time.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Math

I have tutored students for the ACT for 3 years and am able to tutor all sections of the ACT proficiently.

Organic Chemistry

I have 2 Bachelor's degrees in Biochemistry and Chemistry. In my college coursework I successfully completed classes in organic chemistry, organic chemistry laboratory, and organic biochemistry. I also have 2 years of experience tutoring chemistry which has included organic chemistry.

Great tutor! — Heather was a fantastic tutor who helped our son Matt achieve a solid B in his Algebra 2 class. This was no small feat given his lack of interest in math generally. She was patient, empathetic and very knowledgeable in the subject matter. She was able to establish a good rapport with Matt and get him interested enough in Algebra to not only get a good grade in the class but also pass his SOL te ...
