About Me

Hi I’m Cate and I am a senior at DePaul studying Health Sciences. Besides being an SI leader for General Chemistry, I also serve as a TA for Organic Chemistry. Currently I work in Dr. Karver’s research lab working on synthesizing inhibitors for an enzyme. I’ll be graduating in June and then I will be attending medical school at IU in August. I really enjoy being able to help students learn the tough concepts in chemistry. I hope this blog will provide useful resources to all of you!


  1. Practice, practice, practice. The more exposure you have to different problems, the more problems you will be able to do.
  2. Make a plan. In chemistry related math problems, you need to be able to get from what is given to you to the answer. What do you know and what do you need to solve a particular problem? I recommend writing out useful equations and underlining information in the problem. Use these to figure out how to solve the problem.
  3. There’s no right way to study. My way of studying may be different from yours and that’s okay. Figure out what study methods work best for you and stick with them. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different study methods.
  4. Check your understanding. The best way to know if you really understand something is to explain it to someone else. Feel free to explain a concept to me!
