"Prospective Students,

If you are having trouble "getting over the hump" in a science class, I can help accelerate your success. If you want to be prepared for a career in science, I will provide you with the tools to get there. My tutoring will give you the edge you need to fulfill your potential and jump-start your future.

My students always enjoy the tutoring process due to my engaging style and positive encouragement in the face of obstacles. I learned early on that I can explain scientific concepts to others very well, using techniques tailored to each individual student's learning style. With the use of visual aids, analogy, puzzle-solving approaches, mnemonic devices, etc. I have found that anyone can understand science.

I get the most out of my students by challenging them to learn the language of of each subject, not just memorize facts. Students benefit from my extensive research experience in both academia and the private sector, as it supplements the "textbook knowledge" with real world examples. With me as your tutor, you will learn the physical and life sciences from someone who has applied that knowledge for almost 15 years.

I began tutoring students in 2002, while still an undergraduate at MIT. I mainly tutored underclassmen in general chemistry courses, working with over 20 students until I graduated in 2003 with a B.S. in chemistry (organic/biochem focus). While at MIT I received awards for academic excellence (Dean's List) in 2001 and 2002.

I then worked for 7 years as a medicinal research chemist from 2003 to 2010, for companies such as Schering-Plough and Merck, where I published numerous research papers and a patent. In 2010 I returned to the academic world to get my Ph.D. in organic chemistry from UCLA, studying apoptosis and chemotherapeutics.

While at UCLA I won the Hanson-Dow Teaching Award for Organic Chemistry I (30A), as well as numerous research fellowships and the Pfizer-UCLA Dissertation Award for Excellence in Organic Synthesis. I was a teaching assistant for courses in" less...
