## About

Over five years experience tutoring high school and undergraduate math, chemistry, and physics. Proud to provide clear, comprehensible lessons at each student's level of expertise without sacrificing rigor or leaving holes in arguments.

2022 PhD candidate. 2021 BS Chemistry, magna cum laude; all-campus award winner for physics; proficiency in both applied and abstract mathematics, including core abstract algebra, topology, and analysis.

## Frequently asked questions

### What is your typical process for working with a new student?

My process is tailored to each student's goals. For students seeking general improvement in a subject, I usually give a brief assessment to determine which areas are in need of the most attention and help the student set goals. For exams, I will work with the student to make a structured plan for reviewing relevant topics to facilitate real learning and avoid cramming.

### What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am currently a PhD candidate with research interests in computational chemistry. I graduated from Bethany College in 2021 with a BS in Chemistry and minors in mathematics and theoretical physics, where I tutored other undergraduates in math, physics, and chemistry.

### Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$50/hour for one-on-one assistance reviewing assignments, help with coursework, or preparing for exams. Rates may vary for lessons requiring more substantial preparation. I am open to negotiating a lower rate for students interested in meeting regular for longer periods of time.

### How did you get started teaching?

While earning my bachlor's degree, I worked for three years as a departmental math, chemistry, and physics tutor. In high school, I taught chess lessons to local elementary school students.

### What types of students have you worked with?

I worked with hundreds of undergraduates while I was in college and dozens of students, mostly in middle school or high school, since then.

### What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

If you struggle (or get bored) with the way math or science is taught in school, you may benefit from a new perspective on the subject. Unlike most tutors, my approach is informed by experience gained from applying math and science to the cutting edge of research.
