As an experienced high school and college chemistry teacher, I have helped many students succeed despite their fear of chemistry, or an unfortunately poor teacher they have. You will be so prepared for class, you will be confident enough to help your fellow classmates.

I am very experienced at organic chemistry and college chemistry. You will benefit from my experience and ability to predict what questions will be asked on these tests. I am familiar with all the college texts.

As an experienced AP chemistry teacher and reader, I know what AP chemistry looks for in the short answer part of the test. You will be well prepared to earn a 5 on this AP exam.

My sessions will test you with typical test questions you may be asked in class so that nothing will surprise you at exam time. I like to do 90 minute sessions each time in order to have sufficient time to cover a wealth of material.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Chemistry

I have taught high school and college chemistry for 30 years. I am an experienced AP Chemistry teacher and Reader (grading the AP Chem tests). There is no chemistry text I have not seen. Because I have college chemistry experience, I can help with all the material in Gen Chem I and II of a college chemistry class and provide excellent exam questions to prepare the student for anything the professor could throw at them.
I am equally experienced in organic chemistry as well (my favorite!) and can prepare any student for the college courses or for the MCAT portion involving chemistry or organic chemistry.
You will not find anybody who is as experienced and at the same time very good with struggling (fearful) students.

Organic Chemistry

I have taught college level organic chemistry for 20 years and tutored many for the MCAT portion involving organic chemistry. This is my favorite subject to tutor and is usually the most fearsome for students. I will help the student overcome any intimidation they may have and cause them to become very confident in this course.
I have seen virtually every organic chemistry text printed. Nothing can be taught in a college course that I have not already seen or experienced. My preparation techniques will enable the student to ace the class, and even feel confident enough to help their classmates.

Tax Preparation

I have been an tax preparer at a well-known tax preparation company for 20 years and have received my Enrolled Agent (EA) certificate from the IRS (an EA can represent clients before the iRS, although not in tax court, when a tax attorney is required).

My expertise includes anything to do with taxes, from the standard family with W2 income (from 1040) and mortgage and property tax deductions (Schedule A), to those with a Schedule C because they are self-employed, to rental income (Schedule E), to stock sales (Schedule D), to Partnerships (form 1065), and finally S-Corps (form 1120-S). There isn't any type of tax return I haven't encountered because of my many years preparing taxes.

My EA designation qualifies me to help you, and represent you, should you need an installment agreement, offer in compromise, or just to reply to an IRS letter.

I can help prepare your taxes for you, or show you how to prepare your own using off-the-shelf software.

Very knowledgeable, patient, and honest AP tutor — Dan is very knowledgeable in AP chemistry and he is very patient. One of the most important things I would like to mention that is he very responsible for his student by using his own time to solve my son's AP chemistry questions and won't charge extra fee. He is an honest, good, and responsible tutor. ...
