I have a Ph.D in Organic/Medicinal Chemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and 30 years of experience in the fields of organic, medicinal, and pharmaceutical chemistry (drug discovery and development). I tutor chemistry/organic chemistry to college level students (undergraduate, pre-med, engineering students). I also tutor AP Chemistry and Honors Chemistry to high school students. As a tutor, I work to customize individual sessions to the needs of my students. During the first session, I assess where the student is and establish a thorough understanding of their needs and goals for the tutoring sessions. This helps establish a pace of teaching that is catered to the needs and competency of the student. In order to reinforce a comprehensive understanding of the subject area, connections are made between current and previously covered material.
