Chemical Engineer with 3+ years experience tutoring / TAing chemistry, math and engineering

Methodology

My teaching methods are customized to student needs, but I strongly favor hands-on examples and problems. My lessons typically include background theory on the topic as well as problem solving, because I believe learning is best done through application of concepts.

Background

I am a chemical engineer specializing in chemical process development. I have a passion for chemistry, as well as math and other sciences. During college, I was both a tutor and a TA for chemistry, math and chemical engineering students.
