I taught more than 500 students at UIC in past 5 years (mainly general chemistry and biochemistry courses). I have been tutoring for several years now. Often students start general chemistry with me and we go through organic/analytical/biochem together.
But my goal is to grow an independent learners who can use my help on the earlier stage and then are able to figure everything out on their own.
Studding is a skill and you just need to master it!

I graduated from Moscow State University with honors. My GPA is 3.9 and 4 in Chemistry. I completed many courses of physics as a mechanics, thermodynamics, magnetism, microscopy, quantum mechanics. I have a strong background in math, especially in Calc, Trigonometry, Geometry, Algebra.

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

General chemistry, inorganic chemistry, analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, biochemistry, radiochemistry, organic chemistry, colloidal chemistry, etc... That was a long list of classes I had to take during undergrad school. Well passed with average GRA 3.9! Chem is definitely my subject!

Fitness

Following Bodyrock, ZuzkaLight and Spartacus Workout, watching P90X and Infinity I realized how much I'm into fitness. I completed a group fitness training and got certified in Pilates and TurboKick.

Study Skills

How to organize yourself? How to focus on main aspects skipping extra information? How to pass exams? How to study and finally be independent from tutors?
From 10 years of school, 5 years of undergrad and 5 years grad school, million passed oral and written exams I have much experience of study skills.
