I have had years of experience being a teaching assistant and tutor in Florida. I'm currently teaching at a University in Maryland. I don't just answer questions and give mini reviews, I also work to find student's weak points and develop study strategies to improve.

I work outside of the meetings to prepare additional resources for the students. I can provide individual and group tutoring.

If you want your grades to improve, or want to prevent grade slips in the first place--contact me for a custom tutoring service designed around your needs.

Thank you.

I can assist with any high school chemistry course as well as any intro level college chemistry course (honors, nursing, survey, general, etc). As you can see from my subjects, I can also assist with Organic Chemistry.

Organic Chemistry

Whether a high school class, survey (overview) course for non-majors, or major's organic (I or II) - I can help. I have a Ph.D. in physical organic chemistry, and have been working as a teaching assistant for six years.

Study Skills

How best to optimize your studying? There is no magic bullet, sure-fire approach to studying. However, there are some approaches that are general enough to apply to everyone.

Beyond the general approaches, I can also help build a study program that is tailored to your needs and style of learning. Together we can discuss options and work to optimize your study sessions!

As a teaching assistant and tutor for the past six years, I have seen many students waste hours studying because of lack of study skills. Many state they have studied for 4+ hours with little retention. I have taught lessons on the general approaches to studying, and have helped tutor clients develop personalized tutor plans. After my lessons students tend to increase scores and are able to lower their study time.
