I have B.S. degrees in Chemistry and Biology from UC Irvine, and a Master's in Music and PhD in Chemistry from UC Santa Barbara. I'm well-versed in Thermodynamics, Statistical Mechanics, and Quantum Mechanics, and will tailor my tutoring to your needs! Over 15 years experience tutoring individuals and small groups (up to 15).
I have tutored biology, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, analytical chemistry, physics, math, GRE, MCAT, French, English, voice,p and violin over the years and enjoyed helping each and every one of my students learn about the subjects they were working on and about themselves!
Carol is by far the best tutor I’ve ever had! She’s extremely patient and thorough with the material by making sure that you understand the fundamentals in order to learn the more complex concepts. Instead of doing repetitive calculations, you’ll understand the physical meaning and importance behind each step of the problem. She also creates color coded notes along the way that have helped me immensely and saved me SO much time when I’m struggling to condense and make sense of the material. At the end of every session she creates a personalized study plan which is great because every student has different learning styles/habits. Learning the material from somebody who has a passion for teaching and helping students makes a huge difference and you’ll definitely experience that with Carol!
Carol is soooo helpful! I took GRE writing class with her, and my score increases 1.5 points! The perfect score for GRE writing is 6. Learned a lot from her，not only writing!
I got tutored for physical chemistry and Carol was very helpful! She wrote out notes during each session and gave me great study tips. She also helped me target my weaknesses during test taking. I would highly recommend her!
Carol is very patient and very knowledgeable in Physical Chemistry. She creates great diagrams and notes to help along the way which are great for a visual learner like myself. Her tutoring notes are neat, concise and extremely helpful. Carol is the best tutor I’ve ever gone to!
First session is a half priced consultation. I get to know you, your learning style, your syllabus, and your study habits, while also covering material. I usually end with a suggested study plan for your needs, as well as test taking strategies.
