Kerry is an excellent chemistry tutor. She brings clarity to a difficult subject by trying different ways to explain concepts, even using manipulatives. She is an intuitive teacher who knows when the student does not fully comprehend something, and pushes for understanding.
Kerry has been very flexible with our busy schedule, and offers to fit in extra sessions when important tests come up. She is a dependable person who has always been on time. Her friendly manner makes her easy to have around. Her humor is especially appreciated by my high school daughter, who otherwise wouldn't find anything funny about chemistry!
Kerry is cheerful, patient and knowledgeable. My son enjoyed working with her and felt that she really helped him master some difficult material. I highly recommend her!
Kerry is not only a great resource for Organic Chemistry, with her extensive knowledge of the subject, but she is personable and approachable. She makes me feel comfortable enough to ask seemingly simple questions, without fear of judgement. She knows all of the chemistry that I am being taught in class. She is a wonderful tutor who is always available and accommodating.
Kerry is so personable and relatable - she really makes me feel comfortable during each session. She answered all of my questions very clearly and provided me with good strategies to tackle tough college-level chemistry problems, making them seem so much more manageable. Additionally, she is understanding and very flexible, and never made me feel rushed to finish a lesson. Definitely a great choice for a tutor!
I had Kerry tutor my daughter and I was impressed with the aggressive yet positive attitude. Her knowledge in chemistry is evident and I would highly recommend her. She was also on time and not in a rush to leave!!
Kerry is very experienced, which made my learning experience with her very engaging. As an experienced organic chemist and teacher, Kerry helped me really learn the subject instead of just temporarily memorize things for tests. She was very patient with me and really took her time explaining any questions I had and thoroughly thought out her answers. She was great with being flexible with her schedule and extremely prompt. I really enjoyed my time with her and highly recommend her to anyone who really wants to do well and is willing to put in a little more time and effort with a tutor.
Kerry was a find! She is a very bright young lady and knows her material. Kerry knew how to put my daughter at ease and helped her reinforce the basics of chemistry and filled in the gaps that my daughter had not understood last year. She was patient and always on time. Laura was assigned chemistry for her 2nd semester so we will be using her again at the winter break to brush up!
Kerry is friendly, methodical, and knowledgeable on the subject of chemistry. She left a lot of notes which are very useful for my daughter in her preparation for the SAT Chemistry Subject Test. My daughter is so pleased to have been tutored by her and feels much more prepared for the test. Would highly recommend her.
I hired Kerry to tutor my daughter in Chemistry. The very first session increased my daughter's confidence and she now understands concepts that she has been struggling with. Kerry is extremely patient and professional.
The first meeting went very well and my son definitely revealed this morning that Kerry is very knowledgeable in the subject of chemistry in relation to his current 11th grade. She recommended subject area that my son should further study before the next meeting next week.
Kerry S. is a highly intelligent, talented and well rounded tutor. She has the ability to read people in order to have a better understanding on how to teach key concepts. I can honestly say I wish I had hired her sooner. I learned more in one session with her than I have in a semester of books and lectures. I highly recommend her!
Professional and prompt on 1st meeting as a chemistry tutor for my high school son. Hope to use her again on a regular basis to support him in his high school chemistry class.
I met with Kerry to prepare for a chemistry test the next day. She was patient, knew her stuff, and really helped me understand the material. She is a chemist and has deep expertise and didn't even have to refer to the textbook to help me. She was also flexible and was willing to stay an extra hour with me when I hadn't yet mastered the concepts. I will definitely be seeking her help again and would recommend her to others.
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 Ph.D. in organic chemistry. I have taught this course in a college level for 4 years, and have tutored it for 8.
I am able to draw structures, describe bonding, list reagents for reactions, and relate structure to pKa and boiling points.
