Organic Chemist (a.k.a. The OChem Whisperer) with over 20 years of tutoring experience

Methodology

I am incredibly passionate about helping students succeed in organic chemistry. And I want every student to know that organic chemistry does not need to keep them from achieving their goals. It can be simple and easy with the right approach.

I developed a simple and effective approach to help students understand and learn organic chemistry. During the session, I modify the approach to fit with each students style of learning.

Background

I am an organic chemist with over 20 years of experience helping students learn and excel in organic chemistry.

I feel like we all have a gift that we can share with the world, and mine happens to be inspiring students to achieve greatness though learning organic chemistry. I am simply someone who is incredibly passionate about helping students discover their inner potential… what I call their inner OChem Rockstar.
