Organic Chemistry

I have helped more than a hundred Bay area students with their Ochem classes in recent years, and I am able to provide a number of references if you wish. I had Ochem students from all colleges in the SF area: SFSU, USF, UC Berkeley, City College SF, Skyline, San Mateo, Canada College, etc. I am able to help you with all Organic Chemistry I and II subjects, from Alkanes, Alkenes and Alkynes to Alcohols, Aldehydes and Ketones, Carboxylic Acids and its derivatives, Aromatics, Amines as well as Introduction to Biochemistry (e.g. sugars, amino-acids and so on).
The subject list is really pretty much the same in every course, but FYI I know the following Ochem books from cover to cover:
- P. Vollhardt - Organic Chemistry
- D. Klein - Organic Chemistry
- L.G. Wade - Organic Chemistry
- J. McMurry - Organic Chemistry
- W.H. Brown, C.S. Foote, B.L. Iverson - Organic Chemistry

I can help you with:
*exam prep/practice exams/online exams
*any homework prep
*lab reports
*any other Ochem-related tasks

Approximately 90% of my students end up getting an A in class.
If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Approved Subjects

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
