B.S in Chemistry with 1st Rank in Organic Chemistry at University of New Orleans. I will drive you to fully understand the materials.

Methodology

Tutor is not about teaching a student how to do a problem. It's my job to help you to fully understand the materials so you can work on different scenario. I was a private tutor for many students (college, high school) in Math and Chemistry in Fall and Spring 2016.
I have different techniques and methods depending on your way of study. Forcing students to memorize things is not my way of teaching.

Background

Private tutor for 2 academic semesters (Fall and Spring 2016)
Research Assistant – Organic Synthesis Laboratory (May 2016 – Present)
Teaching Assistant – Department of Chemistry (January 2016 – Present)

97% of my students got an A as their final letter grade in the subject that I tutored them.

Transportation Fee : $10
Rate for online lessons : $20/h

Details

Primary/elementary students: $20 at the library near my house and $30 with travel with 5 miles
