Chemical graduate with 3 years of experience as a teacher's assistant and tutor

Methodology

I have tutored high school students and I was a Teacher's Assistant for General Chemistry as an undergraduate student. These experiences have allowed me to approach each student with an open mind so that I may connect with them and understand their confusions. Listening is the greatest lesson I have received from my experiences as a teacher/tutor.

Background

I have a B.S. in Chemistry, with a minor in Biology and a certificate of Green Chemistry. I have 2.5+ years of research experience at Grand Valley State University, Washington State University, and North Carolina State University. I have presented research at multiple American Chemical Society meetings, the International Green Chemistry Institute meeting, and a CUR Research Experience for Undergraduate's symposium in Washington, D.C.

Andrew was my tutor for my organic chemistry class. He did a great job at helping me understand and learn tough concepts. He encouraged collaboration and I was able to learn from my peers. He did a fantastic job at explaining concepts in many different ways, as well as showing visuals.

Andrew tutored me in my Chemistry class. Before he worked with me I was failing and I ended up getting an A with his help. I really recommend his teaching style, it is comprehensive and easy to understand.
