About the lesson

During our first session, we will establish your understanding of the subject and then establish what topics you should focus on and the study schedule you should keep in order to get the grade you want. Each lesson will then start by first examining any questions you have about new concepts or assignments. Then, we will either work on assigned problems, review concepts from the last session, or begin preparing for the exam. Many students and tutors use practice tests as guides when preparing for an exam, but I know from grading 1000's of exams that students tend to memorize the answers to practice tests and then incorrectly apply those answers to similar questions on the exam. I make sure students understand the important concepts that are covered on the practice tests and in the course material. Then develop a strategy for identifying questions based on these concepts and how the different approaches to answering questions based on each concept.

About Brandon

I started tutoring at the campus Tutoring Center in my junior year at UC San Diego. After receiving my B.S. in Chemistry, I went on to receive a Ph.D. at UC Santa Cruz and published several seminal papers on medicinal chemistry including one featured on the Journal of the American Chemical Society (Vol. 134, Issue 28). As part of my graduate studies, I served as a teaching assistant for undergraduate courses in Chemistry and began offering private tutoring in Math, Chemistry, and Spanish. I have taught at every level of undergraduate chemistry, including General, Organic, Inorganic, Analytical, and Physical Chemistry courses.
