EducationI am a May 2017 University at Buffalo graduate with my Bachelor's of Science in Biomedical Sciences. My specialty is general chemistry and have worked with dozens of students. Many of my students went from failing their first general chemistry exams to A's on their next ones. I have many practice exams, many example problems, and many analogies/mnemonics for multiple topics in chemistry. My favorite General Chemistry topic is: Electron Configuration.

HobbiesIn my free time I enjoy hanging out with friends have a passion for makeup. I was an Academic Assistant for a Living Learning Community floor in the dorms at UB and work closely to tutor and mentor my residents. I have strong family ties and am an avid movie watcher.

I received Tori’s help in my Chem 101 course at UB. I was fortunate enough to have her tutor me the entire semester. In the time span of an hour, just once a week Tori was able to help me to master chemistry and with her guidance I received an A in the course. Tori is dedicated in helping her students succeed. She will meet at various times and where ever is convenient for the student. I think the most effective way she helped me to be successful was by going over the main points of each chapter and giving me practice problems that were often used on tests or quizzes in the past. If I needed help again, Tori would definitely be my top choice for a tutor at UB.
Tori is a lifesavor! After only a few visits with her my quiz grade went from a 7/20 to a 20/20.. And my test grade went from a 44/100 to a 96/100 (one of the highest in the class) At first I was skeptical about meeting with a tutor because I didn't know how they would be able to help me. After meeting with Tori once I already knew she was a great tutor because she was VERY ORGANIZED. She had notes ready to go, practice problems and even practice tests which is why I did so well on mine. She even gave me tips and techniques she uses during her exams (they helped me out a lot). If you're struggling with your course , the best thing you can do is meet with Tori. You won't regret it.
I knew I needed help in chemistry after barely passing a two week chemistry prep course at D'Youville College this past summer. Being a first time chemistry student, I sought help from Tori after reviewing her profile on universitytutor.com, as I was confident that her credentials, high GPA, and willingness to help others learn was just the thing that I needed. Within the first five minutes of my first tutoring session with Tori, she helped me to understand concepts about chemistry that I couldn’t understand in the two weeks that I spent in my prep course at a private institution. Three months later, I am still working with Tori on a weekly basis. Not only am I acing my chemistry class at D’Youville College, but I am understanding things about Chemistry that I never thought I would ever be able to grasp. Tori is by far one of the most amazing individuals I have ever met. She truly has a gift for teaching and mentoring people that is unlike anything that I have ever seen before. In my opinion, she takes one of the hardest classes and not only makes it easy, but fun to understand. Whether it is sending encouraging text messages to me on the morning of a chemistry test, or being there to listen when I’m stressed out with school, Tori goes above and beyond the typical duties of a “tutor”. If you’re struggling with chemistry or need the extra help, Tori is your girl. Not only will she help you to understand chemistry, but she will be there for you as both a tutor and a friend.
Tori is the best! She has been tutoring me for one year now. I was originally looking for just a chemistry tutor at UB, but she also helps me in math. She explains everything thoroughly, and will start at the beginning if you don't follow. She has always been flexible to meet me and is always available when she says she will be. She never makes me feel stupid or judged and will answer literally any question I have. She will take time outside of our tutoring sessions to write down step by step instructions and email documents. Highly recommend!!
Tori is awesome!! She is extremely helpful and knowledgeable and is easy at simplifying things so that my daughter can understand. She gave out homework...and my daughter did it! My daughter is happy to have Tori helping her and looks forward the their sessions. Thanks Tori....you're awesome!!
