About Dorothy

About Dorothy
Hi! I finished my college education (major: biochemistry and molecular biology) at Reed College in the US, and moved to Germany for my PhD in Biophysics and Structural Biology. I can tutor math, physics, chemistry and biology from elementary school up until the college freshman year level, and chemistry and biology beyond that (for the entire university curriculum).

Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
For the past 2 years I was a regular drop-in and individual tutor for students in my college. I also acted as the teaching assistant for chemistry labs. Before that, I have tutored children from low SES families (from elementary school to high school level) on a voluntary basis for 4 years.
