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.

Great tutor

My son has made improvements in solving equations without using his calculator. He is gaining more confidence with each session

ACT Tutoring

My son has worked with Heather regarding the entire scope of subjects within the ACT. My son recently just took the ACT and he felt really confident that he increased his score. Heather, thanks for providing solutions to each of my son's questions. We'll let you know the outcome of the test in a few weeks.

Travis, 9 lessons with Heather

Sharon, 5 lessons with Heather

Excellent tutor!

I've worked with Heather two separate times now. Initially, we met in-person and she was a huge help in preparing me for the GRE when I was thinking about applying to graduate programs. She's incredibly patient (math is definitely not my strong suit), punctual, responds to emails/texts quickly and clearly, and always has a sense of humor and pleasant demeanor. She was instrumental in helping clear the math cobwebs in my brain and helping me remember how to do things I hadn't done in years. I was accepted to the MPH program at George Washington University and my second experience with Heather came several terms into my MPH program. I had to take Biostatistics and really needed help about two weeks in. The class quickly went from 0-60 in difficulty after week one and I was panicked. I texted Heather and we quickly made an arrangement for weekly sessions that worked with my schedule. As I recall, she already had a packed schedule of students and I had a crazy working full-time/grad school schedule, so we opted to meet every week using Skype, which worked out well. Heather goes above and beyond. Even days after our last session and before our next one, she'd email me if she had further pointers/explanations on particularly difficult problems, as well as squeezing me in for extra sessions as needed when I got close to the final exam. I passed the class and I know I wouldn't have been able to do that without Heather's guidance and support.

Very helpful

Heather was very patient with my daughter and listened to her primary complaint. Heather explained various equations and provided a better understanding of her homework and Chemistry. My daughter has actually shared what she has learned with Heather to her peers who are also having a hard time with some of the problem solving.
