Hello, my name is Mike and I am currently a graduate student at the University of Oregon pursuing a M.S. Chemistry. I obtained my B.S. Chemistry from Virginia Tech. During my time at Virginia Tech, I have mentored other undergraduate students in both General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry concepts with consistently positive feedback, giving them a stronger confidence to do well on exams. Since my time on Wyzant, I have over a year’s worth of experience tutoring high school students as well in chemistry. The reason why I am a tutor is because I enjoy helping students learn and succeed, showing that YES you can understand chemistry even as difficult as you may find it to be.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When I first started out in college, I may have been like you. I was an environmental science major and I really didn't want to deal with anything that was chemistry related. That was until I met this one astounding professor who changed my world. He showed me that in some ways, chemistry can be fun and exciting to learn about, challenging you to think at a higher, more intuitive level. Or you just might be a high school student, just struggling to get by in your chemistry class when everything seems foreign to you. Well, I've been there too.

As your mentor, my goal is to not only help you obtain the right answers to questions but to help you understand chemistry better so that you, yourself, can bring yourself to a higher level of thinking and have "fun" as well.
