I am a Chinese American, Ph.D. chemist and a veteran of technology development in the chemical, high tech and solar energy industry.
I decided to tutor chemistry because I want to teach students not only chemistry but also problem-solving skills, e.g. giving students the tools to develop their own theory about what gap they have in the chemistry class, what is the cause and how to close the gap.
Once the student has learned what he or she must do to improve performance, I can then help the student to implement a plan, including reviewing class materials in a way that make them more comprehensible or developing a better way for memorizing key concepts or solving additional problem sets, etc.
I did my doctoral and post-doctoral work in physical organic chemistry.
Organic chemistry is a broad field which includes activities that intersect with such diverse areas as biology, medicine, pharmacology, material science, chemical and petroleum engineering. Organic chemistry is typically organized into three areas: structure, dynamics and synthesis. Structure includes description of organic molecules and methods for determining, analyzing and predicting molecular geometry and bonding. Dynamics refers to the chemical and physical properties and transformations of molecules. Synthesis includes methods that convert existing substances into new compounds.
I have a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from Michigan State University, and worked over 20 years afterwards as a researcher, scientist and engineer for University of California, Berkeley and private industries in fields relating to organic photochemistry, performance materials and additives for electrodeposition. I have had 9 publications and 15 patents in those technical areas.
