I have always loved chemistry since I was blowing stuff up in high school, to the environmental testing career I've had for the last 14 years. I graduated from CU with honors and Phi Beta Kappa with a 3.8 GPA. I'm interested in helping others with an interest in chemistry, but please be serious. I'm not going to do your homework for you, because you won't learn anything. I want to show you how to understand this fascinating and fundamental science for yourself.

Organic Chemistry

I am a biochemistry graduate and had to take extensive organic classes and labs. I have worked as an organic chemist for the last 14 years since graduation. Organic is unique in the sense that there are fewer "mathematical" answers and it is more of a cumulative understanding of molecular interactions and functional groups. While I received good grades in college, it took years later to "get it," that's why I think I can be an efficient tutor.
