I am a current college student so I will try to work my schedule around to help accommodate yours. I love volleyball and theater and can't wait to help teach you math.

I am a graduating Chemical Engineering Student from University of Missouri Columbia Class of 2020. For one year I was a community college campus tutor. I was also a teaching assistant for a Mass and Energy Balance course. These are some of the more physical things that show I am capable of teaching. Additionally, I truly enjoy helping people understand the material! I recently recieved a National Science Foundation Graduate Fellowship to pursue graduate school to get my PhD and hopefully teach someday. I also love research and applications of science and math. Being a chemical engineering student has a lot of these examples so don't be afrai
