"Hi!

I love to teach because I love knowing more about how the world works, and transitioned from wet bench biochemical research to education so that my students could have a taste of what that exploration is like. For seven years, I've taught 6th-9th grade general science, biology, and chemistry. My time was split between both public and private schools in New York City and Washington, DC. Between being a TA in college and tutoring professionally, I also have over eight years of tutoring experience (primarily in math).

My focus is always on making sure a student has a strong foundation in basic concepts - whether this is number theory, fractions/decimals, or basic biology. I want you (or your child) to understand WHY the math works more than simply knowing a set procedure to follow. Most obstacles and confusion that we face are because of a missing piece in this foundation. Let's discover what that is and strengthen it, so that you can be off and running toward success!

My professional strengths are in the biological sciences and general chemistry, but I'm happy to work with students in a general science curriculum (this includes basic chemistry and physics). If the annual science fair is an occasion of dread, please reach out and let's get started in time for you to have an awesome project! I also tutor all secondary levels of math, from pre-algebra through pre-calculus. I am particularly comfortable with those who are test anxious, or who have never felt like math or science are their strong suits.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions before reserving a session. I look forward to working with you, and celebrating your many successes!" less...
