Outside of my professional endeavours. I don’t liken myself to a comedian by any stretch of the imagination but nevertheless, I love to make myself and the people around me laugh. I work in very serious and stressful environments so being able to add levity to situations has been integral for me and how I manage stress. I take my work and what I do very seriously, but by no means do I take myself seriously; I am my biggest source of laughter. A student should choose me to help facilitate their learning because of my extensive experience with teaching and tutoring. All of these experiences imparted on me what I believe to be the fundamental tenet for any prospective tutor and pedagogue: there is a spectrum over which students and individuals learn & assimilate information. As such, you must remain fluid and open to continually learning, evolving, and adapting to various learning styles to provide effective edification. Specialize in organic chemistry tutoring.
Theories: SCIENCE CAN BE FUN. If you don’t think so, I blame the teacher. I utilize several different memory techniques to help students make this information more sticky and memorable. Simplify, simplify, simplify. One of my greatest strengths is being able to critically analyze things and consider multiple opinions and perspectives. I've gained a lot of knowledge over the years but even that has its limits and I think it is important to remain open to being able to change one’s views or thoughts on a matter, be it of a personal nature or something epistemological.
Environmental Science degree with chemistry and environmental biology minors. 3.85 GPA. The human psyche is what I find fascinating and I will forever be in the business of helping humanity. My bubbe was the first female surgeon in Illinois and my grandpa was a dentist who would perform surgeries out of his pocket on women because of ‘naive idealism’ of his financial position or rather the power of unequivocal suffering. In college I pursued two rigorous majors with no other option. Fascinated by the interaction of molecules and cyclohexanes of organic chemistry yet desiring the capabilities to speak to a room of people, with articulation and veracity.
Devan would be a great teacher for you, as she really knows her material and enjoys helping others who are challenged to learn as well. Devan, is kind, warm, approachable and compassionate with people who deal with frustration and anxiety when is comes to challenges in learning certain material.
If you want a friendly and incredibly knowledgeable tutor for organic chemistry, choosing Devan is a no-brainer!
Every lesson was very informative and she knows how to keep the subject matter fun and engaging! When I found a topic difficult to grasp, she remained patient and always found a way to frame the information in a way that my brain could understand! I highly recommend her for anyone looking for guidance in understanding organic chemistry and related coursework!
Devan has an incredible knack for taking complex concepts and distilling them clearly for her students to learn! I really want to thank Devan because she helped build the foundational knowledge and problem solving required for me to tackle difficult organic chemistry concepts. THANK YOU DEVAN!!
