Amy graduated with honors from UCSB with a degree in biological sciences and began working at CLAS as an organic chemistry tutor soon after. As the coordinator of the Bio/Chem Program at CLAS, Amy still enjoys tutoring students, as well as hiring, training, and mentoring the biology and chemistry tutors. A strong advocate of interactive learning techniques and the Socratic Method, Amy encourages her tutors to promote independent learning in their own students to ensure continued academic success long after tutorial sessions have concluded. Amy also enjoys natural history, botany, classic cinema, and cats.
