I recently graduated from Syracuse University with a Bachelor's Degree in Biochemistry, and a minor in Psychology. During my time at Syracuse, I enjoyed tutoring Organic Chemistry for 2 years--and most importantly, my students claim that I actually taught them something!
Organic Chemistry is my favorite subject, with Biochemistry closing in at a close second, and I think my passion for the subject is evident in my teaching methods. I encourage a great deal of hands-on problem-solving, with an emphasis of WHY the mechanism occurs as it does. Wherever applicable, I suggest the usage of molecular models to support the visual aspect of Organic Chemistry, because, after all, to deal with molecules is to deal with physical entities whose physical geography matters.
I aim to make Organic Chemistry fun, and most of all, to make it stick. While I haven't formally tutored Biochemistry, Biology, or Psychology, I've assisted several friends in those subjects, and am knowledgeable enough to tutor them.
