I've always loved teaching and tutoring, and after completing a Masters degree in chemistry I am now pursuing a teaching license to teach high school science. I tutored general chemistry for three years as an undergraduate and taught chemistry labs as a graduate student. While most of my teaching experience has been in helping students grasp fundamental concepts and applications in general chemistry my Masters program has also given me extensive knowledge and experience in organic chemistry.

I specialize in tutoring chemistry, whether at the high school or college level. I am willing to work with each student to design a tutoring plan that fits their needs, but to all of my students I offer in-depth explanations of concepts, analysis of the student's own work to find and address strengths, weaknesses, and gaps in understanding, and extensive guided practice in the application of everything they are learning. I teach problem solving strategies that focus on breaking complex problems into manageable parts. Students benefit from my highly discussion-based teaching methods, especially those who find the lecture-based methods of many high school and college classes unsuited to their learning styles.

I understand that schedules can be hectic and that unexpected scheduling conflicts can easily arise. While I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy I'm willing to reschedule tutoring sessions as long as I'm given enough notice. I'm happy to hold sessions at a location of the students' choosing.

I look forward to hearing from you soon so we can get started down your road to chemistry success!

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 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 tutored chemistry for three years as an undergraduate. I then taught three semesters of chemistry labs in graduate school. I also have a masters degree and bachelors degree in chemistry. I'm now working on getting my teaching license, which I will finish in May of 2015.

Organic Chemistry

I'm qualified to tutor organic chemistry because I have a master's degree in chemistry with a concentration in organic chemistry. In addition to requiring two semesters of organic chemistry as an undergraduate, this program included such classes as synthetic organic chemistry and physical organic chemistry, which expanded on the principles of organic reactions learned in organic chemistry I and II. As a graduate teaching assistant I taught general chemistry labs and helped students in all chemistry classes in the chemistry help room. I also contributed to two papers published in chemical academic journals on the organocatalytic polymerization of renewable organic monomers.

Extremely Helpful — I am a student who has always had a huge struggle with chemistry and I have tried a few different tutors, and Meghan definitely has been the best! She is extremely helpful in filling in the blanks that I miss from class or that the teacher forgets to mention. She also has been extremely helpful when it comes to breaking down the problem so that it is easier for me to solve. She tests my knowledge ...
