EducationI graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign with a BS in chemical engineering and a minor in computer science. Although I am clearly passionate about math and science, I also have a strong appreciation for the arts, particularly foreign languages. I have taken six years of Spanish, and have been tutoring Spanish at various levels for four years. I currently work at the Dow Chemical Company as a systems developer.

HobbiesI have been a private tutor for over four years, and it has been easily the most fulfilling job I've held. I love explaining new concepts to students, and I have been told that I am very patient when teaching. I try to come up with new, interesting ways to teach topics. I have tutored students both over summer vacation (where I have given "crash courses" on, for example, introductory Spanish to help students succeed in what may be their first language class in the fall) and during the semester (where I focus more on providing direct homework help and study strategies)
In my free time, I like to knit, crochet, and draw. I also enjoy swimming and playing tennis and badminton.
