I'm a junior at Hunter College majoring in chemistry/biochemistry. So far, my major GPA is 4.0. After graduation, I hope to pursue a PhD in chemistry. My ultimate goal is to learn something new everyday!!! (btw, my nickname is Gia or Jia, whichever is easier to remember) I've been officially tutoring for 6 years so far. As a member of the Math National Honors Society, I tutored algebra, geometry, trig and calculus a few hours daily for 3 years. As a senior in high school, I fell in love with chemistry and started regularly tutoring in the subject. In college I've worked in both math and science tutoring centers available in the school, with more emphasis on Chemistry and Organic Chemistry. My approach is primarily visual, as I find students grasp concepts more easily this way. I like to ask a lot of questions to make sure the student understands the topic. Moreover, I have students paraphrase what they have learned in their own words to help internalize concepts.Fun Facts: I'm very musically inclined. I play the clarinet and sing a LOT, even though I'm tone deaf. It's a great thing to do to relieve stress and loads of fun!!! I'm also interested in learning about computer science, programming and modelling.
