Hello, my name is Heidi. I am an adjunct Professor, teaching CHM130 lecture and lab, CHM230 (organic chemistry lab). I have also taught CHM151 lab.
I hold the CRLA (College Reading and learning association) regular tutoring certificate.
I graduated with a first class bachelor's degree in Chemistry with honors from the University of Liverpool, England. During my degree I spent a year working in industry for Zeneca. During this year I gained practical experience in Ion exchange chemistry.
After graduating I gained another years experience in industry concentrating on the field of combinatorial chemistry. I became a mentor for junior team members.
I then returned to my studies and was awarded a PhD in medicinal chemistry from the University of Bath in England. My field of expertise was sugar chemistry. During my 4-year course, I tutored many undergraduates in lab work.
I have post doctoral research experience in Cancer research from Arizona State University.
I have chosen to exclusively tutor chemistry as I have a lot of experience in the subject.
My strength lies in the ability to explain organic chemistry into simple language. This includes first and second semester college organic chemistry. I studied inorganic, physical and organic chemistry for 6 semesters in England. I specialized in organic chemistry in my final year.
I am also confident in explaining general chemistry both at high school and college level. Example of topics that I cover are stoichiometry, gas laws, thermodynamics, chemical bonding and VSPER theory, acid/base chemistry, kinetics, equilibrium etc.
My style changes with each individual student. As I was educated in England, a very often have different methods of working out calculations which students find much more simple.
Many students get very confused by stoichiometry. This is an extremely important concept and if a student is confused by this topic they will continue to struggle with chemistry. Most of my students will understand stoichiometry within their first lesson with me.
I am willing to answer questions via email in between regular sessions. Hello, my name is Heidi. I am an adjunct Professor, teaching CHM130 lecture and lab, CHM230 (organic chemistry lab). I have also taught CHM151 lab.

Rates increase for ASU campus/ some other locations. I prefer to meet at Sunset library (Rural and Ray) or Tempe library (Southern and Rural). Groups of 2 or more add an extra $15 per person per hour.
She started working with Heidi part way through Organic Chemistry. My daughter was sure she was going to fail, but I said take the whole class anyway, so if you have to take it again it's familiar to you. She passed! She was one of the only students who had not taken chemistry in high school, so she was struggling. She told me that when Heidi explained things she suddenly understood them. She also encountered some other students who had been tutored by Heidi and their experiences were also very good. Heidi was very flexible and was able to see my daughter right away when we contacted her for help. (It was a chemistry crisis!) She was also very flexible about working with my daughter's schedule and meeting her near campus. I most highly recommend Heidi R as a tutor! This was a 100% positive experience for us!
We've had great luck finding Mickie B, our Honors Chemistry Tutor. We scan our child's study guide, and Mickie reviews it prior to the session. Our daughter really appreciates Mickie, and gets along great with her.
The one time we could not schedule with Mickie, we found a terrific substitute, literally at the last minute. That was Heidi. Heidi emailed me within the hour with a great location to meet, and she accommodated our last minute need for a tutor. I am grateful for this service. We would definitely contact Heidi again, and appreciate her skill at explaining the topic matter.
Heidi is the only reason I was able to pass my 8 week organic chemistry course. She is patient and has an extremely flexible schedule. I was able to meet with her weekly. She walked me through my homework problems and answered all of my questions in great detail. I would recommend her to anyone who is struggling with organic chemistry.
Heidi contacted me within minutes of my initial request. We were lucky enough to be able to schedule a hour within a couple of days, just in time for a Chemistry test. She is quite knowledgeable and was able to answer all my daughter's questions quickly and clearly. My daughter appreciated her patience. I appreciated her flexibility. The results are in the performance: my daughter reported the test was easy thanks to Heidi's coaching.
Heidi was a great tutor for my daughter in Chemistry. She was always accommodating. Heidi's schedule was flexible to work with my daughter's schedule. Heidi had a great way of explaining the material so my daughter was able to achieve success.
Chemistry is not my strong suit and I was struggling when I got in contact with Heidi. She was able to simplify and clarify the structures and mechanisms in a way that made sense to me. She is the only reason I was able to pass this course and I greatly appreciate her availability and knowledge.
Heidi is really awesome. She's so patient and was very willing to work with my schedule. She was also really easy to get into contact with via email or by phone. She definitely helped me grasp concepts in a way I could never have accomplished on my own. Thank you Heidi!!
Heidi is very knowledgeable and came prepared to work on the Chemistry topics my son needed to focus on. She was patient when explaining concepts, even if she had explained the same concepts the session before. She left homework expectations after each session and also left the answer keys with me so I could help in between. She took the time to provide session summaries for me so I could help ensure my son was getting everything he could from the tutoring time. I’d recommend Heidi as a great tutor for focused and driven students who want to exceed!
I would meet with Heidi about one to two times a week and it was always a great learning experience. I was determined to work hard and came prepared with questions for her, which she gladly helped me through and worked with me on. I ended up getting a good grade in the class because of her help! Definitely getting tutored by Heidi next semester and would recommend her to ANYONE wanting to succeed! Thanks Heidi!
I really don't like or understand chemistry. I had to take the first part of Ochem twice and wouldn't have passed it the second time without the help from Heidi! I only wish I had found her earlier, maybe I wouldn't have had to take the class again! I felt like I didn't know anything and after only two sessions with Heidi I was ready to take my ACS final! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for help in Organic Chemistry!
Heidi is an amazing tutor. She is a General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry Whiz. She genuinely cares about her students and really tests your knowledge. She also helps simulate testing conditions so you really know where you stand for any type of major test. I would highly recommend her for all your chemistry needs.
Heidi is a great tutor. She will take the time to work with you through the problems that you need help with. She will also provide worksheets of her own to help you get more practice. Heidi has worked with my schedule very easily, and has found times to help me that worked for both of us. She is very patient and understanding of your situation. I found that my test grades improved quite a bit after working with her. Definitely worth the price!
Heidi was amazing! She was able to help me pass Organic Chemistry. If it wasn’t for her, I would have had to repeat the class. She was able to reword the information into easier terms which allowed me to understand. She was always available for my schedule and would return all my emails and phone call quickly. If you want to pass the first time, I would choose Heidi.
Heidi is extremely well versed in Chemistry. She seems to be best suited for students that find it easy to work following the text book in a structured way and willing to do homework to keep up with the instructions. Overall I think she is a very good tutor. Since the tutoring is in a library versus home, it can be inconvenient for folks not having a vehicle.
I always like to meet my students in a public place such as a library for the first lesson or so.
Heidi made her tutoring style match my learning style, which led to a very effective tutoring session. She explains concepts thoroughly and clearly, doesn't move too fast, and made sure I worked out problems on my own.
I've been going to Heidi for the past year with my O-chem and she's always very helpful. Very flexible schedule and explains things very well. Great tutor!
Heidi is a very helpful, accommodating and knowledgeable tutor. My only regret is that I didn't get Heidi to tutor me earlier. It would have saved me a lot of frustration and I am sure I would have gotten an A instead of a B. Nevertheless, Heidi helped me bring my near failing grade up to a B...that I am really proud of. Thanks Heidi.
She knows her material hands down and her schedule is flexible. I would not of trusted anyone else to tutor me in this subject, because I feel that no one else is as qualified as she is! She breaks down the mechanisms and reactions so it is more understandable. HIGHLY recommend!
Heidi is a very knowledgeable and patient tutor. My daughter is in high school and had a very hard time with chemistry, and Heidi was able to help her understand better than her teacher. My daughter's grades improved as a result. Heidi is obviously a wonderful tutor.
Heidi has a true passion for the subjects she tutors which translates into superior quality learning for the student. She has the ability to work at the student's pace and explain concepts in ways the student can understand. She is amazing and truly a gift! Thanks Heidi! :)
Great tutor! Heidi has been very helpful to me and she is very patient with me.
Very Good Tutor
Heidi is a very patient tutor, she explains things very clearly, she writes down good examples. After her tutorial I got 98% in my homework.
Heidi is a great tutor! I appreciate the time she spends preparing for our sessions and she is extremely responsive. Heidi is patient and always willing to help explain concepts several times if needed.
A very special thanks to Heidi!!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
Chemistry-I teach all levels of general chemistry and organic chemistry. As my degree is in Chemistry from England I studied chemistry for 6 semesters. Having problems with the calculations, I can make them easier.
I have been teaching the MCAT chemistry section for the last two years. I have helped a number of students achieve their goal in this area.
I believe I can help people increase their scores on the chemistry sections of the MCAT. There is a lot of information to remember when taking the MCAT from the 4 semesters of chemistry. There is also new information to learn such as doing the math without the calculator.
I have studied organic chemistry as an undergraduate for 6 semesters in an English University. In England particular attention is given for understanding mechanisms. I also did a specific course for retrosynthetic analysis (this is where you are given a product and asked what starting materials were required).
In addition my PhD is in Medicinal organic chemistry. I have a lot of synthetic experience including post doctoral lab work.
