Hello. This is my story.

I believe teaching our next generation how to be scientists is the best legacy that we can leave behind! Students often feel overwhelmed by the idea of taking a chemistry class and my first most important job is to break down the concepts to make it understandable. Teaching chemistry is like painting a detailed image in a student’s mind of how atoms work. Once they are able to picture the pieces they start to see how they fit together and the world of chemical understanding opens in front of them. That aha moment, where a student turns to you in amazement that it all makes sense, is why I teach. I have been a chemistry teacher for the last 14 years. I have taught AP Chemistry for 11 of those years. I also have taught biology and biotechnology. I have a masters degree in microbiology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. I was a member of the Geobacter Project at UMass-Amherst, where I presented at many conferences and am a co-author on numerous journal articles on my research. I am a proud graduate of the College of the Holy Cross, where I was a biology major and did research on a highly thermophilic anaerobic bacteria. I am located on the north shore of Massachusetts and am available as a virtual tutor during late afternoons, early evenings and weekends.
