I graduated third in my class at Frankfort High School in Short Gap, WV. I plan on attending Medical School where I aim to work with children. I received the CRC Press Freshman Achievement Award in 2014 for a perfect score on the Chem 115 Final and have made the President’s list for both my semesters at WVU. I am Treasurer of the Pre-Medical club, volunteer at Ruby Memorial Hospital, and a member of the MED Life Chapter at WVU. In the summer I am a camp counselor at Mercersburg Adventure Camp and spend my downtime hanging with friends in hammocks or around a campfire.

I grew up in the military and moved around throughout most of my life before settling in my parents’ hometown of Oak Hill. I was born in Turkey and also lived in Guam and England. I am a chemistry major with minors in physics and mathematics. Besides leading PLTL sessions, I have worked as a learning assistant for PHYS 111 and 112. I am very interested in understanding how students learn and how to teach effectively.

I love to play tennis and my two favorite sports to watch are professional football and soccer. I also love to make people laugh and enjoy watching a variety of movies (my favorite being Inception). My goal is to show students that Chemistry is not as difficult as it seems if you put in the hard work.

I am currently a Freshman who is interested in chemical engineering, but also interested to find out if I would enjoy a teaching career. I was excited to have this opportunity to tutor because I knew that I wanted to work as a tutor at WVU. I graduated from Wheeling Park High School where I was a math tutor. I really enjoy both Calculus and Chemistry. I love to spend time outside and with cats and horses.

Also, I believe anyone can be successful if they are willing to devote the time. I’d love to tell you a joke about chemistry… but all the good ones Argon.
Hometown: Morgantown, WV
I am from right here in Morgantown and graduated from Morgantown High School. I am currently majoring in Biology and have goals of going to medical school and becoming a doctor. For me I believe Chemistry has several fantastic components. In addition to enhancing problem solving, it also forms a basis for explanation of how everything functions. Hobbies of mine include tennis, basketball, ping pong, and video games. A quirky fact about me is that while I write with my right hand, I play sports with my left hand.
