Gina is currently a postdoctoral fellow conducting research on the impact of the pine beetle outbreak on water quality in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. She obtained her PhD in Chemistry from Old Dominion University, VA in 2011. Her PhD research involved investigating the organic nitrogen molecular character and reactivity in lake sediments using a variety of advanced analytical techniques. In 2006 she obtained her undergraduate Masters MChem from the University of Sheffield, UK (Instead of a bachelors). As a result of her research, Gina has published several papers in scientific journals.

During her PhD she was a TA for Chemistry for non majors in which she was responsible for teaching a 1 hour recitation and laboratory, including all grading. She has also taught as a guest lecturer an undergraduate/graduate course in environmental soil chemistry for the last 3 years. She is also the organiser of a summer soils science institute in which she is responsible for designing experiments and teaching students from a wide range of disciplines and levels chemical laboratory techniques. During both her PhD and postdoc she has been a mentor to both undergraduate and graduate students, in which she taught key skills, helped in solving problems and assigned work when applicable.

Sara is currently a graduate student at the University of Colorado Boulder, pursuing a Master of Arts in Comparative Literature and a Graduate Certificate in Women's and Gender Studies. She is also a Teaching Assistant for the French and Italian department. She has studied three foreign languages (French, Italian, and Japanese) and has taught English as a foreign language. This affords her a unique perspective on language learning which she believes makes her particularly well-suited to teach reading and writing skills.

Before coming to CU, Sara received her Bachelor of Arts in Comparative Literature from Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts. While at Clark she also completed undergraduate and graduate-level coursework in Education and completed a year-long student teaching practicum in which she taught three classes of 12th grade English for the duration of the school year.

Sara is happy to offer short-term help on individual writing assignments as well as long-term tutoring in reading, writing, or language skills.
