Hello! If you are in need of help with biochemistry or organic chemistry, look no further. I have a PhD in Biochemistry and a Masters in Chemistry. I have over 8 years of experience tutoring undergrad, medical and dental students. I have an excellent track record of turning around students who are failing their courses. Most importantly, as your tutor I will teach you not just what to study but how to study complex science material so you are prepared for courses in the future. I look forward from hearing from you soon.

-Cheers, Larry

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.

Organic Chemistry

As a chemistry major, a thorough understanding of the theories and principles of molecular bond formation and common mechanisms of organic chemistry reactions was requisite. Identifying that I was a person whom could reach out to fellow classmates struggling with topics, I was appointed to TA undergraduate organic chemistry for 2 years where I was responsible for the instructing a lab section of 30-60 students which furthered my educating experience. In my senior year, I was involved in primary research developing reaction schemes to generate estrogen analogues for drug screening trials. These responsibilities required drawing on my strong understanding of organic reactions and physically applying them in the lab to generate compounds.

My teaching experience in organic chemistry was furthered upon entering graduate school for a further two years. Here I gained advanced insight into the reasoning behind organic chemistry principles tough in undergraduate organic chemistry while being exposed to state of the art methods and technologies in organic molecule synthesis.

As a Biochemistry PhD research associate at Columbia University, I draw on these skill sets every day to conduct research but still have a strong desire to reach out and educate all persons ranging from high school to medical students studying the principles of general and organic chemistry. My proven track record of successfully helping students demonstrates that with the right approach, everyone can be successful their chemistry courses.
