How Can I Help

You should come to my sessions to get the most help you can in Introductory General Chemistry! I know how difficult the course can be, and I can help you better understand these tough concepts for homework, quizzes, exams, etc.


I am from Deerfield, IL. My pronouns are he/him/his, and my major is Neuroscience with a minor in Anthropology. I love to cook in my free time and explore Chicago with my family and friends, and my favorite author is John Grisham.

Why I Mentor

I mentor to help students in the way that I would want to be helped myself, through thorough explanation of difficult concepts. After having so many helpful mentors guide me in my own life in many places, I knew that I wanted to serve this role, and being an RPM is the perfect opportunity to do this. I have learned so much about the importance of constantly adjusting how to explain concepts to students because how I understand something may not be the same way they comprehend it.
