Owen is taking pre-calculus and has taken AP Physics I and II. He has developed his tutoring skills during high school by tutoring students taking Spanish. Owen plans to go to dental school and become a dentist. He wants to use his passion and interest in the science of oral health to help people. In his spare time, he enjoys playing piano and various types of video and board games. He’s also looking forward to traveling to Spain this summer. Owen's favorite number honor belongs to Newton’s gravitational constant “G”, because it was a fascinating unit to learn about in physics when discussing Newton’s law of universal gravitation.


Morgan is about to graduate from Creighton University with a degree in biochemistry and plans to attend optometry school. She is originally from Wisconsin, but has grown to love Omaha over the last 4 years. In her time at Creighton, she has enjoyed working as a chemistry tutor for general, organic and physical chemistry students. She loves how much math (including calculus and algebra) is involved in chemistry! Morgan is excited to expand her scope of tutoring to work with kids of all ages. Morgan is very involved with her sorority and campus clubs. She loves to travel and took a couple opportunities to travel abroad through Creighton. Her favorite number is 0 because it's hard to understand, but so important for many mathematical concepts!
