Hi, I'm a Ph.D. Chemist with fifteen years of experience teaching and tutoring undergraduate Organic Chemistry. A multitude of such students have approached me over the years feeling frustrated about Organic Chemistry. Often, they would begin by telling me how many copious hours they have spent studying for their exam, quiz, etc. From my experience, this is due to studying the wrong way.
A student's first inclination is often to memorize bond breakage and formation, and this methodology culminates in confusion and distress. The answers are in the mechanisms... I can show students how to deconstruct reactions to their underlying principles, and apply this fundamental knowledge to understand and predict molecular behavior.
I enjoy helping students achieve success in Organic Chemistry. If you or someone you know is in need of extra help with this subject, I hope you will reach out to me!
