Ph.D. Graduate with 10 years of experience in chemistry. (Focus on Organic Chemistry.)

Methodology

I approach each subject and student differently. I have tutored and taught 1000's of students of the years and the first thing you learn is not everyone is the same. I make it my goal to meet the needs of each student differently. Some students will need a more hands-on approach where they need to be walked through each subject at a slower pace and others just need a little refresher. Whatever the students need I try to meet them!

Background

I am a recent Ph.D. graduate in chemistry. I have been teaching and learning the subject for 10 years. I am Willing to help individual students or small groups. I have the skills to tutor students at all levels of chemistry (high school to college). I primarily focus on organic chemistry and general chemistry. I am also fairly confident in maths such as algebra and statistics/probability.
