About Stephanie

About Stephanie
I have a Ph.D. in chemistry and really love helping people. I am very invested in helping students really understand the concepts (instead of just memorizing). I also teach how to figure out what the problem is asking and the steps you should take when solving the problem. I will try many different ways of explaining the topic/steps until the student really gets it. Chemistry is not as hard or scary as you think!

Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
I have been tutoring various subjects since I was 14 years old and really enjoy working one-on-one with students. I have been tutoring and teaching university-level and AP level chemistry since 2004. I was an instructor for several years at Penn State University before moving to Philadelphia. I have tutored students from universities in Florida, Illinois, California, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
