Hi! I'm Maria! I've been General Chemistry TA and I'm also a student at Columbia University! I know chemistry might seem hard, but I'm of the opinion that it can be super easy and fun if it's taught in the right way. When you work with me, I make sure to break down complicated topics to their simple forms, and explain complex principles in ways that anyone can understand! I also have experience writing chemistry exams with college professors, so I can help you understand what professors and teachers most frequently test on! Need help writing lab reports, pre labs, or post labs?? Not a problem! As a chem lab TA, I've reviewed countless lab reports and know exactly what graders are looking for! At the end of the day, I make sure that each of my students leave a lesson with a clear understanding of difficult topics they came to me with!

About Maria P.

Hi! I'm Maria Psarakis! I'm currently a student and John Jay Scholar at Columbia University in the City of New York! I've been a tutor for general chemistry and general biology for a few years now, and in addition to this, I've been a TA for General Chemistry as well. I've also been a researcher on a bioinformatics research team involved in the discovery of a new species of bacteria.
I absolutely LOVE science (especially chemistry) and it just breaks my heart when I see super smart and capable students drop the course because they feel they can't understand the material, when in reality, they just don't have the right teacher!
Fun Facts: I'm also a rock climber and mountaineer, and I absolutely love the outdoors! I speak three languages, and I love baking!!
