I have previous experience with tutoring in settings that are one-on-one to groups of 10 or less. My method is to ensure that the student(s) comprehend the material beyond the scope of 'passing the test'. To facilitate this, I ask students (at an appropriate level) to critically evaluate their reasoning and find ways to bring in outside material.

I have an advanced degree from the California Institute of Technology, and I am confident in my ability to share and inspire chemistry at the high school and college level.

My previous educational work has been both in the laboratory and the classroom setting. I often find that the students I work with not only enjoy my ability to covey information, but also my enthusiasm for the subjects. I have had many people tell me that they appreciate seeing someone so interested in their field when they present information or material that is relevant. I expect students to come in ready to learn and with an open mind. I am dedicated to making sure students are engaged in the material by drawing connections to various topics to help with comprehension. Once a basic understanding of material is grasped we can then work to understand the fundamentals of why and how it all comes together.

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

I got top marks in all my organic chemistry courses and even participated as a fill-in TA for the Academic Excellence Program at UCSC. I've taken advance course work in organic chemistry, including; theory, physical organic, and bioorganic. I love synthesis problems and have strong spatial awareness. I use a combination of practice and fundamental understanding of molecular interactions to make learning and doing organic easier.

If need be I can submit transcripts showing my top scores in my organic classes.
