Hi everyone! Chemistry can sometimes be a pretty daunting subject to learn in school, can't it? Allow a highly experienced professional such as myself to help you understand and comprehend what is truly a fascinating scientific field! I have a doctorate in organic chemistry from Rutgers University and have worked in the pharmaceutical industry for over 15 years. I have taught numerous general and organic chemistry recitations and laboratories and provided tutelage for many students. I completely understand that there is no one size fits all approach to teaching a subject; so I will strive to understand what style of learner you are, how you best process information and tailor my tutoring approach that works best--for you!

In addition, I am also certified to tutor for the following areas: ACT, prealgebra, algebra I & II, biochemistry, biology, organic chemistry, physical science and SAT math, should you require help with any of those subjects. Thank you and good luck!

Best regards,
Brian

Organic Chemistry

Organic chemistry is the field of chemistry that I chose to specialize in while in college. I earned a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from Rutgers University and have worked in the pharmaceutical industry for over 15 years as a synthetic organic chemist. While in graduate school working as a teaching assistant, I was responsible for teaching many organic chemistry recitations and laboratories as well as mentoring and tutoring numerous students. Organic chemistry is my favorite aspect of chemistry and would love the opportunity to share my enthusiasm and knowledge about it with you.
