About Houtaneh

Hello! I am currently in Naturopathic medical school in Tempe, studying to become a Naturopathic Doctor. Before this, I graduated from Syracuse University with a Bachelor's Degree in Biochemistry, and a minor in Psychology. During my time at Syracuse, I enjoyed tutoring Organic Chemistry for 2 years--and most importantly, my students claim that I actually taught them something!

After I graduated from Syracuse, I continued to tutor Organic Chemistry, and began to teach Biochemistry. With each student that I undertake, I learn more about the art of teaching and hone my skills likewise.

Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry are tied for the title of "my favorite subject", and I think my passion for the subjects 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.

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

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

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.

Biology

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

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

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.

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!
