Welcome students! I am an naturopathic physician in Scottsdale, Arizona, teaching organic chemistry and biochemistry in my spare time. I quite enjoy teaching these subjects as a hobby because they are foundational to the medicine that I practice, and because the subjects are so much fun!

Prior to owning my full-time naturopathic medical practice, I graduated from Syracuse University with a Bachelor's Degree in Biochemistry and a minor in Psychology. During my time at Syracuse, I began tutoring Organic Chemistry as a way to improve my own understanding of the subject, and immediately fell in love with teaching it--10+ years later, I still love every second of tutoring!

Given the feedback I've received from my students over the last decade, I think my passion for the sciences 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.

As the years have gone by, I've also added nutrition and genetics to my repertoire. As a naturopathic physician, one of my strengths is nutrition and applying that to daily life, and I also love teaching it to students.

I aim to make learning science fun, and most of all, to make it stick!

As a Biochemistry major, it is absolutely crucial to have a 100% grasp of basic biology. I actually tutored biology in high school, incidentally.

Science

Biochemistry,

Biochemistry

I literally do not let my biochemistry textbook out of my sight. I consult it on a weekly basis, and use it as a platform for further investigation of new biochemical discoveries.

Genetics,

Genetics

Not only is Genetics is a part of our curriculum in medical school, but we use genetic testing at the medical center on patients regularly, if warranted. I’ve taken basic-moderately advanced genetics courses throughout undergrad and in medical school, and feel comfortable explaining anything from simple Mendelian genetics to modern epigenetics.
Nutrition,

Nutrition

Naturopathic medicine is fundamentally based upon proper nutrition and lifestyle, and I personally believe in nutrition being the foundation for health. Not only do we learn nutrition in extraordinary detail, but I personally have done a lot of research into the topic of nutrition and I LOVE talking about it!
Organic Chemistry,

Organic Chemistry

I have been tutoring organic chemistry for two years at Syracuse University with much success. It is my favorite subject, and my students tell me that my passion about organic molecules resonates within my teaching methods, and rubs off on them from time to time.
Psychology

Psychology

I minored in Psychology, and find it to be highly intuitive. While I've never formally taught psychology, I have discussed it enough and taken enough courses to be able to tutor the subject.

SO HELPFUL, NICE AND PATIENT

We went over isomers and then went over some review for my exam. Houtaneh was so nice and had very warm energy. She was patient with me as I struggled through problems and explained everything in a way that was easy.

Lauren, 17 lessons with Houtaneh

Super nice and helpful

She was so nice!! Orgo is a hard class and she makes it simple and understanding! And she answers messages quickly and is willing to work with your schedule. She also makes sure you are understanding the lesson as you go on and builds on the material. Highly recommend her to anyone!

Katie, 10 lessons with Houtaneh

Continually bringing clarity

Organic chemistry is hard. I've had alkynes of trouble. Yet, Hout has a way of taking advanced scientific reactions and ,through explanation or example, makes them easy to grasp and apply.

James, 13 lessons with Houtaneh

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

We went over substitution and elimination reactions during our first session. Houtaneh, made sure I understood all the concepts before moving forward. She is very patient and knowledgeable, and would recommend her to anyone!
