I have a B.S in chemistry from UC Davis, with a pharmaceutical emphasis as well as a minor in environmental toxicology. I also have some research experience in pharmacology and vitification.

The bulk of my undergraduate focus was in the area of bio-organic chemistry, both theoretical and practical. Some of my favorite subjects studied were modern methods of retro-synthetic analysis of complex organic compounds, and bio-synthetic as well as synthetic pathways of natural products. Toward the end of the curriculum I began to study drug development and design using computational methods of enzyme-substrate docking.

However, the majority of my experience lies in tutoring/teaching undergraduate and high school chemistry . I have a passion for helping students establish a solid foundation in the fundamentals of science.

My ultimate goal is to eventually get a PhD in chemistry and teach general and organic chemistry to undergraduates.

Organic Chemistry

I have a B.S in Chemistry with a pharmaceutical emphasis. The majority of my knowledge in chemistry is accounted for by bio organic chemistry with focuses on enzyme inactivation, natural product synthesis and biosynthesis, and computational drug design. I am yet to receive a teaching credential for this subject but have exceptional levels of laboratory and coursework experience in the vast field of organic chemistry.

Great tutor. We have been very pleased with Chris. He has worked with our son several times. Our son is a sophomore taking AP Chem and Honors Geometry. Chris has been able to help him very effectively in both of these areas. He explains the concepts that our son needed to clearly understand. Chris is very pleasant and kind, and engaging with kids. He is focused, and is able to get to the core issue. We highly ...
