"I am currently pursuing a PhD in Organic Chemistry at an elite chemistry program (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Rank #6 in Chemistry). At UIUC I have taught discussion sections for Organic Chemistry, earning an Excellence in Teaching Fellowship in 2020. I completed a B.A. in Biochemistry with Honors at Grinnell College, a top ranked liberal arts school (#3 for Best Undergraduate Education), and worked as a teaching assistant, leading discussion sections for Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry, and as a tutor, working with students in small groups. All together, I have worked with more than 200 students face to face (and online!) over the past 5 years.

Organic Chemistry can be a daunting subject, and is often associated with tedious memorization and recall. The experienced chemist knows, however, that organic chemistry is a essentially a pattern-recognition game. By keeping chemical trends in mind, and following fundamental rules, organic chemistry problems can be solved by intuition rather than memorization. My teaching philosophy is to help the student with fundamental understanding and provide tangible and implementable study strategies, so that they can learn to recognize these patterns and become independent problem solvers.
