UCSB Graduate offering Chemistry Tutoring in West Los Angeles with 3 Years Teaching Experience

Methodology

I am passionate about chemistry as seen by my degree and I would be happy to teach anyone who needs help or is interested in the chemical sciences. When teaching I want students to both understand the basics of the problem and core concepts instead of generic regurgitation of information. Furthermore, I also find that explaining and understanding each step in a problem is vital and I have found that my students learn best when I lecture to them first.

Background

I am a recent UCSB graduate who graduated cum laude with a degree in chemistry. At UCSB I was a teaching assistant for 3 years and have taught over 150 students. Many of my students found chemistry to be tedious and dull, but through my teaching and lecturing, I helped many find and appreciate chemistry from a practical standpoint. Furthermore, my efforts in a research group have imparted me with career advice that works as a strong conversational starting point for students interested in what they can do with a degree in the sciences.
