Why did you become a tutor?
My decision to become a tutor was based on my desire to help other students overcome the challenges of Organic Chemistry through community, commitment, and determination and to stay engaged with course materials for my future endeavors. Additionally, I love working with people and feel that I carry a skillset, both in teaching and communicating, that I can use to serve others in the classroom.

What is your favorite thing about the subject in which you tutor?
My favorite thing about Organic Chemistry is that there's never just one way to get the correct answer. Much like a jigsaw puzzle, you begin with the same pieces and end with the same product, however the manner in which one arrives at the final product is subject to their own creativity and thought process.

What is the best study tip you have for a student taking one of the courses you tutor?
Know the reactions and know them well. It's impossible to construct a blueprint to build something without first knowing the tools and supplies that are available.
