I am currently studying for my PhD in Systems, Synthetic, and Quantitative Biology at Harvard. I obtained a degree in Biochemistry at the Western Kentucky University Mahurin Honors College with minors in Biophysics and Mathematics. I maintained a near-perfect GPA while taking numerous upper-level biology, chemistry, and mathematics courses. I have been recognized by many STEM honors, including the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship ("The most prestigious undergraduate scholarship in the natural sciences, mathematics, and engineering in America") and numerous awards at my institution, including recognition for research excellence and as the top student in my department.
In addition to tutoring my peers and younger sister for several years, I have served as a chemistry (1 semester) and physics teaching assistant (2 semesters) at WKU. The support of my mentors and teachers over the years have made my success possible, and I want to serve a similar role in the lives of other students. I would love to have the opportunity to help your student succeed.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
First, I work to assess the student's current standing. I work through a problem set with the student to gauge the students knowledge of content and approach to problem solving. Then, I determine a study and tutoring plan with the student to target areas that need improvement.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have served as a teaching assistant for introductory physics and chemistry. I have completed coursework through differential equations (calculus four) in mathematics; general chemistry, organic chemistry, and analytical chemistry; and cellular biology, molecular biology, evolutionary biology, zoology, and physiology.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
I charge $35.00 per hour for new students. If a student continues with tutoring for several weeks, I am willing to negotiate on pricing; these costs can be determined prior to the first tutoring session. If financial difficulty limits your student's options for tutoring, please reach out to me; I am happy to offer lower costs for students with demonstrated financial need.
