I have a master's degree in chemical engineering from the University of Washington, Seattle. Upon graduation I joined one of the largest biopharmaceutical companies in the world as a scientist. After a rewarding five-year career, I decided to leave the industry to pursue teaching. I am passionate about utilizing my scientific and engineering background to help students appreciate the advantage of a strong STEM background in their careers and personal lives. I am experienced in teaching algebra (all levels), calculus (all levels), the ACT, SAT, and GRE.
As a teaching assistant at the University of Washington, I instructed and held office hours for classes of 50 students. The dean of the chemical engineering department has recognized my teaching performance. In my teaching reviews students have described me as: "always available," "she goes out of her way to help students," "knowledgeable," and "nice."
