Chemistry student in the New York City area offering lessons in chemistry, specializing in organic chemistry; named one of the top 20 students for the United States National Chemistry Olympiad.

Methodology

As a peer to the students I teach, I center my lessons around problem-solving and the process of developing an intuition for problem-solving techniques. A typical lesson can consist of a review of homework problems and then the introduction of intuitive problem-solving strategies that do not rely on rote memorization and instead rely on deep understanding. I encourage active recall and spaced repetition to solidify important theoretical concepts. I am targeting high school students taking general chemistry classes or AP chemistry and encourage students who are interested in going beyond the conventional high school curriculum. I am also targeting college students needing help in organic chemistry, which is my strong suit.

Background

I am a freshman at Northeastern University and I am experienced in tutoring high school chemistry, such as AP Chemistry, while also personally experienced in going beyond the normal curriculum and pursuing excellence in chemistry competitions, such as the United States National Chemistry Olympiad, of which I placed in the top 20 in the US. I have been tutoring for 2 years as a part of the National Honor Society. Additionally, I have practical experience in the lab, with 4 years of experience doing biological research. On the chemical side, I have completed a one-year internship doing R&D at Reckitt Benckiser.
