Dominate Chemistry/Math with a DMD/PhD grad student

I graduated with a BA in Chemistry (ACS Biochemistry option) from Western Connecticut State University. I worked as an Organic Synthesis Research Assistant for the Whitesides Research Group at Harvard University. I am currently in a combined DMD/PhD program at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, pursuing a PhD in Organic/Medicinal Chemistry and a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. I am very passionate about teaching. I have taught private violin and viola lessons for many years, and my s... [more]


Algebra 1

I have tutored Algebra 1 to all ages, from my younger cousins in middle school to college students taking Algebra in the Math Emporium at WCSU. I have tutored Algebra for more than 5 years.


Algebra 2

I have tutored Algebra 2 in the Math Emporium at WCSU for 3 years. I work through homework problems and challenge students with variations of problems they have done. I like to be creative in my teaching by drawing world applications.


Calculus

I received a 4 in the AP Calculus AB exam my senior year in high school and received an A in Calculus II at Western Connecticut State University.


Chemistry

Chemistry is everywhere, so why not learn how it works? My approach is to break down each problem into pieces, and use strategies to work towards obtaining the solution. I emphasize understanding the physical meaning to minimize memorization. I took AP/UCONN Chemistry in high school and General Chemistry at WCSU. I participated in the WCSU Chemistry team, whom won the Mole Bowl Competition in 2016 against Fairfield University and Sacred Heart University. I was also a Teacher Assistant for General Chemistry II at WCSU for three years.


Geometry

I took Geometry my freshman year in high school. I just find it very interesting to learn about the various ways we can look at geometrical objects, and how we can solve for angles, sides, areas, perimeters, volumes, arc lengths, and more. I tutor by demonstrating the various ways in solving for a quantity, and explaining which one is the most efficient. This subject has to be taught with graphs and drawings.


Prealgebra

I have tutored pre-Algebra in the past to my cousin and she has enjoyed the examples I have given her. I challenge students by having them explain to me examples, and explore possibilities in solving problems.


Precalculus


Trigonometry

I tutor trigonometry through very visual examples. Trigonometry can seem intimidating because it is a step up from Geometry, but I will help you understand the importance of its concepts and connect it to the real world. Trigonometry is very important for future math courses, such as Calculus. I have tutored Trigonometry to 3 of my younger cousins in the past, and they have all dominated the course. I am determined to help you succeed!


SAT Math

I have tutored many students at Western Connecticut State University in Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry to prepare for their exams. I know many strategies to help dominate the SAT Math section, such as process of elimination. I have helped my cousin do well on her SAT math section. I promise to make problem solving a breeze.


ACT Math

I have tutored many students at Western Connecticut State University in Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry to prepare for their exams. My students have demonstrate lots of confidence with plane and coordinate geometry. I know many strategies to help dominate the ACT Math section, such as process of elimination. I promise to make problem solving a breeze.


Elementary Math


Violin

I have been playing the violin for 14 years and have instructed 10 violin students. I studied violin with Eric (former U.S. cultural ambassador to Soviet Union and Professor) and Katherine Lewis. I also studied under Patti Kilroy, a violinist and PhD candidate at NYU. One of my students has auditioned and been accepted to the Violin Performance degree program at FAU. I was concertmaster during high school and was assistant concertmaster in the WCSU Symphony Orchestra.


Organic Chemistry

I received a perfect score (30) on the Organic Chemistry Section of the Dental Admissions Test. I am currently an Organic Chemistry Graduate Teaching Assistant at UAB. I was an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant for Organic Chemistry I at WCSU, and have done extensive organic chemistry research while at WCSU and at Harvard University. I have also lectured for Dr. Velu's Organic I and II classes at UAB.
