Friendly Math and Science Tutor

Hello, I am a friendly and knowledgeable math and science tutor. I have ten years of experience tutoring and teaching. I have a bachelor?s degree in Chemistry from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and a master?s degree in Education from the Boston Teacher Residency. I enjoy helping students broaden their knowledge and skills and to succeed in their classes, exams, and careers. Since earning my bachelor's degree I have taught science to a wide range of students, in both formal... [more]


Calculus

While pursuing my degree in chemistry, I took 3 semesters of calculus. Since graduating I have stayed interested in math, and I have taken courses in linear algebra and statistics. I have tutored students in a variety of math courses including calculus, geometry, and algebra.


Chemistry

I have a bachelor's degree in Chemistry from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. I have a Masters in Education from the Boston Teacher Residency with a concentration in science education, and I have experience teaching chemistry at the high school level.


Geometry

I am preparing to apply to graduate programs in mathematics. I have used geometry in all of my math course including calculus, linear algebra and abstract algebra. And I enjoy finding connection. between geometry and other areas of mathematics.


Physics

While earning my degree in chemistry, my concentration was in physical chemistry. I took three semesters of honors physics, one year of physical chemistry, and one year of graduate level advanced physical chemistry. My senior research dealt with the contribution of electron tunneling to the reaction mechanisms of light-activated inorganic metal complexes. I have experience tutoring physics at the high school and college level, as well as tutoring graduate level physical chemistry.


Statistics


GRE

I took the GRE in October of 2017, and I scored 168 on the math section and 169 on the verbal. I can help you make a test prep plan. I can help you bolster your understanding of the material. And I have lots of practice materials to hone your skills. Let's get started! Please note: I tutor the Verbal and Quantitative sections of the GRE but not the Writing section.


Probability


Linear Algebra

I recently completed a course in Linear Algebra through the Harvard Extension School. I received an A in the course, which dealt with linear transformations, multi-dimensional sub-spaces, Eigen values, and linear differential equations.


Organic Chemistry

I have a bachelor's degree in Chemistry from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, I have a Masters in Education from the Boston Teacher Residency with a concentration in science education, and I have experience teaching chemistry at the high school level.


Finite Math

I have education and teaching experience with many topics that comprise typical finite math courses, including set theory, logic, probability and matrices. In college I took 3 semesters of calculus and one semester of statistics. Since graduation, I have continued to take math courses for fun including linear algebra and a course called "groups, sets and topology."
