Lesson Details

Chemistry

Levels Taught:
Elementary, Middle School, High School, College
I graduated from Caltech with a BS in Chemical Engineering, and also worked in a protein chemistry lab for 3.5 years which culminated in a publication in Nature Chemistry. Additionally, my last job in industry required that I evaluate the chemical risk exposures of the Fortune 1000 companies. Through the combination of these experiences, I can teach you about the practical applications of chemistry, which makes chemistry a lot more interesting!

Hello, I'm Natasha and I grew up loving math and science. These subjects always felt very logical and natural to me, and I hope to share my love and intuition for them with every student I teach. My passion for math and science brought me to Caltech, where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering with a focus in Applied Math.

I've previously tutored elementary and middle school children where I provided one-on-one assistance with homework help and exam prep in Math. I love that tutoring is not a one-size-fits-all approach and that each student can view a particular problem very differently than his or her peers. I do my best to tweak my pace and teaching style to fit each student's needs more closely, so that they can get the most out of each session.

I extensively programmed in R for 4 years in industry, and made some very interesting data visualizations to represent statistical analyses of open-source data. Statistics feels a lot more approachable when there are visualizations to illustrate the concepts.

I graduated with a Chemical Engineering degree from Caltech, and worked in a protein chemistry lab for 3.5 years. I have in-depth knowledge in high-school and college-level organic chemistry, physical chemistry, thermodynamics and spectroscopy.

I grew up in a bilingual environment and so am proficient in both English and Mandarin Chinese. Having also learned French and Thai through my childhood and adolescence, I am no stranger to learning a new language and will be happy to guide a student through learning Chinese for the first time! I enjoy learning about China's rich history of over 5000 years, and believe that the best way to teach the language is to let it come alive with stories that have been handed down over many dynasties and generations.

Talk to you soon! Drop me a message so we can see if I can fit your needs.
