I teach Chemistry at all levels, and I listen to students and observe their learning abilities. I then utilize different teaching methods and techniques based on their need to offer personally tailored lessons to improve their learning experience and knowledge retention.
As a tutor, I have a Ph.D. in Chemistry. I have assisted and motivated students to understand some basic concepts in Chemistry in a fun and effective way. Students exhibit their growth and confidence by achieving a grade of A.
Please let me know 24hrs before lesson cancellation.

I have taken lessons with Esther and she has helped me improve greatly in my Chemistry classes. I learned a lot and when I didn't understand some topics, her patience and attitude made the topics easier to learn and understand. She always comes ready and prepared for her lessons with me and makes things fun. Thank you, Ms. Esther.
