Chemistry Kitchen Lesson 1: The Secret Science of Dessert
Welcome to It's Just Food, Dude! (Science Edition). At the beginning of class each week, students will explore a different food science experiment guided by the scientific process. There will also be a component called Food Fight! where students will create their own food product based on marketing science. Students will work on their Food Fight! projects each week towards the end of class, and present on a volunteer basis during our final session. Students will learn how everyday kitchen items can be repurposed into fun and interactive science lessons.
I’m a sophomore Economics major at Barnard College. I previously attended Montclair High School and have been tutoring for six years. I have done private tutoring as well as Barnard Peer-to-Peer tutoring. I am organized and creative, so I can consistently think of new ways to explain the material. I also am approachable and encouraging, so students will feel comfortable interacting with me. I begin my tutoring sessions gathering the problems the student had the greatest difficulty with and after reviewing these I create practice exams from a mix of their past problem sets, problems I find online, and problems I make up to target specific areas the student is struggling with.
