PHD in Biochemistry from University of Alberta

Career Experience

After a 16 year career in biochemical research, I turned to tutoring as part of a career reinvention process. I've been tutoring chemistry professionally for over 3 years now, and am getting increasingly experienced at tutoring it online as well, having worked with for over 1 year now.

I Love Tutoring Because

as a new challenge for mid-life, tutoring has allowed me to keep up my knowledge base in chemical and biological sciences, allowed me to improve my communication and interpersonal skills, and work part time at a time when I have family and educational commitments as well. It is also work which gives me a feeling of accomplishment and of making a difference in the world around me, and where I can get the excitement of introducing new ideas and skills to minds young and old.

Other Interests

Computer programming, Cooking, Gardening, Reading, Skiing
