BS and MS, Delhi University, Delhi, India (Organic Chemistry,)
University of Wisconsin, Madison (PhD)
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.

Jasbir is an extremely patient tutor. He specifies to each individual student with worksheets and packets and summary sheets. Overall, my grade saw an immediate improvement. Before I began tutoring with Jasbir, I was having trouble grasping the bigger concept that would help me be able to look at the smaller parts of Organic Chemistry effectively. After one tutoring session I was able to understand why things like inversion occurred and how to correctly draw mechanisms. Since there is only one Organic Chemistry teacher at my school and all science majors have to take it, it is difficult to meet with my professor one on one to ask for a secondary explanation. Jasbir comes prepared to every tutoring session with Power Points, examples, and lots of patience! If he noticed I was not grasping a concept completely he has plenty of understanding of it that he can change his explanation so that I was able to comprehend.
From the parent: Jasbir S. is extremely qualified as a tutor, and we (as parents of the student) highly rate his qualifications specifically in organic chemistry and his overall professionalism! Jasbir S. has provided regular tutoring for our college-aged daughter for the past semester. We are incredibly pleased with Jasbir S’s:
•Qualifications (business professional and college professor),
•Scheduling communication (attentive and accommodating),
•Progress communication (regular reports of activity and progress after each session), and
•Professionalism (our daughter reports positive interactions and results).
We would highly recommend Jasbir S. as your tutor.
Jasbir is very patient, especially with difficult topics. He makes sure a concept is understood before moving on to the next. His explanations include plenty of detail. Additional examples are provided to ensure understanding.
Jasbir was able to help my son grasp difficult concepts in organic chemistry. He was very patient and would made sure that my son had a complete understanding of the subject matter. He identified the reasons my son was struggling and incorporated strategies to help him overcome these difficulties. Jasbir was easy to reach and very flexible.
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.
I have a Bachelors in Chemistry, a Masters in organic chemistry and PhD in organic/medicinal chemistry from University of Wisconsin-Madison. I tutor high school students in chemistry/AP chemistry/honors chemistry. I also I tutor chemistry/organic chemistry to college level students (undergraduate, pre-med, and engineering students). I tailor the material to the goals, needs, and pace of each individual student. In order to reinforce a comprehensive understanding of the subject area, connections are made between current and previously covered material.
I have over 30 years of experience in the fields of organic, medicinal, and pharmaceutical chemistry. With a Ph.D in Medicinal Chemistry and a Masters in Organic Chemistry, I am proficient in the theory and application of organic chemistry both in a classroom and in a laboratory setting. I tutor chemistry/organic chemistry to college level students (undergraduate, pre-med, and engineering students). I tailor the material to the goals, needs, and pace of each individual student. In order to reinforce a comprehensive understanding of the subject area, connections are made between current and previously covered material. I have recently tutored general and organic chemistry at the undergraduate level utilizing textbooks including: Brown's "Chemistry: The Central Science", "Organic Chemistry" by Carey and Giuliano, "Organic Chemistry" by Vollhardt and Schore, and “Chemistry: Atoms First”
by Burdge and Overby.
Jasbir S. passed a background check on 6/11/12. The check was ordered by Jasbir through First Advantage. For more information, please review the background check information page.
After sending a message to Jasbir, you will be able to order a new background check for $7.99. As part of your tutor selection process, we encourage you to run updated background checks. Please also review the safety tips for hiring tutors.
