I have been involved in Chemistry for 50 years. I have taught at the college level and held open office hours to tutor my students. I worked for companies like DuPont, Ciba and Invista in all aspects of Chemistry from lab work to managing chemical businesses while mentoring my direct reports and other junior professionals. Sometimes it is hard to get a good start in this science. If you are having trouble, I can help.
My approach to tutoring is to sit with the student and first understand their level of understanding of the subject as well what their short and long term goals are for using the knowledge they are gaining from their point of view. Then address where their understanding is weak and removing this weakness by detailed discussion of the area and the concepts involved coming at it from a number of new directions so that a fuller understanding is achieved. Of course, somethings just have to be memorized but understanding why is very important.
I can also help with beginning to intermediate Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint and Financial skill improvement.
I have a BS and PhD in chemistry. To earn these degrees required mastering math through calculus and differential equations. Building on a good early math education was very important. I have taught at the college level and tutored many students and coworkers along the way as well as my own children and other family members.
I successfully completed both undergraduate and graduate courses in Organic Chemistry. I worked for over 25 years in manufacturing organic chemicals. I performed and managed R&D in organic synthesis.
