Prospective physical chemistry graduate student offering tutoring for maths, physics and chemistry

Methodology

I approach topics in science and math based on who I am discussing the topic it with. Generally, I have found it best to try and relate the topic to something the student is interested in or understands. Achieving a common ground then makes it easier to implement the tools that allowed myself to understand a challenging topic to help the student understand it.

Background

I have recently graduated from the University of Minnesota with a BS in chemistry and a mathematics minor. I have also been accepted into four PhD programs for physical chemistry and will be finalizing my decision as to which university to attend this coming April. I am very passionate about physical sciences. I am even mort eager to help others develop the same passion as I look forward to becoming a professor following graduate school.
