"I am PhD student in Geosciences at Boise State University. My research focuses on the radiogenic and stable isotope geochemistry of the mantle and other high-temperature igneous systems. I recently graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a Geological Sciences BS and Chemistry BA. I am passionate about using chemistry to understand the geology of the world around us. I have been tutoring high school students in all levels of chemistry at a local tutoring company for over a year. I have enjoyed my experience tutoring immensely and am excited to join this platform and work with more students! Outside of the classroom and tutoring center, I enjoy hiking with my dog, rock collecting, and conducting research.

When I took chemistry, geology, biology, and physics as a high school student and as a college student I always found it helpful to complete a multitude of practice problems and organize the key points of a unit into one concise page. My goal is to help students organize the information they learn, practice with constructive feedback, and consolidate the key points into easy to use study guides. I think everyone has a unique learning style and it is my job to ensure I'm conveying the information in a way that makes sense to the student. I also enjoy connecting concepts students learn in the classroom to fascinating real-world examples. From my prior tutoring experience, I've learned a lot of students struggle to use big picture concepts to recognize themes in question types. For these students, they succeed when I show how a big concept with a large problem set is actually one question asked in different ways. Then, I present a series of simple steps to follow to answer the question.

I have a strong background in chemistry and the geosciences. I also enjoy and have studied biology, physics, and calculus. I enjoy tutoring high school and college students in chemistry, earth science, and algebra. Please reach out if you have any questions or to schedule a lesson!" less...
