Yale Chemistry Student offering Chemistry and Math Tutoring in New Haven, CT

Methodology

My teaching method is to figure out what my student needs to know for their class, briefly go over these requirements with my student to pinpoint any weak points they have, then work with them on those weak points until they understand the underlying concepts. I believe that understanding the concepts of the subject is much more productive than simply knowing how to do problems.

Background

I am a Chemistry student at Yale University with a 3.96 GPA. I got a 5 on the AP Chemistry exam and an 800 on the Chemistry SAT Subject Test. Chemistry is my passion and I feel it is an underappreciated subject because it is often taught in a confusing way.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $14/h

Kristjan's resume

Education:
High School: Hopkins High School
- Cumulative GPA: 3.8
- Exam Results:
1. AP Chemistry: 5
2. AP Biology: 4
3. Chemistry SAT Subject Test: 800
College: Yale University
- Cumulative GPA: 3.96
- I am a pre-med student. My major is undeclared, although I am likely to major in Chemistry.

I worked as a research assistant at the Yale Pathology Lab for two summers with Dr. Themis Kyriakides. I worked on diabetic wound treatment research. My first summer, I familiarized myself with the lab environment. I was a more general assistant the first summer and I helped the researchers with pipetting, cell staining, and cell imaging analysis. My second summer I worked with a grad student on research on extra-cellular matrix derived hydrogels, a promising treatment option for diabetic wounds. I learned how to culture cells and how to analyze RNA samples by using quantitative polymerase chain reactions (qPCR).

Last summer, I worked as an intern at deCODE genetics in Iceland. deCODE genetics is pioneering the genetics field with advanced biotechnology. My job required me to use Tecan liquid handlers and Illumina Nextseq systems on a daily basis to sequence large batches of genomes at a time.

Kristjan has always worked very hard and chemistry is something that he is passionate about. Being a college teacher myself I understand the importance of this.
