About Sophie

About Sophie
I graduated from Cornell University (M.S. Food Science) and Purdue University (B.S. Chemical Engineering). I absolutely enjoy teaching as I love breaking down complex concepts into simpler ones that students can easily understand. Being a tutor gives you a priceless experience of growing with the student and seeing them achieve the best of their potential. The best feeling is when I see my students grasp concepts a lot faster than day one and start enjoying the subject more than ever! Leave a message if you'd like to schedule a session with...

I started teaching in 2011 and have experience in teaching the subjects below.
