I am a clinical pharmacist currently working with the Federal Government in Northern California. I obtained my Doctor of Pharmacy degree from KGI School of Pharmacy (the Claremont Colleges) and was the 2019 Mylan Pharmacy Excellence Award recipient among the KGI Doctor of Pharmacy graduating class of 2019. This award is given to only one Doctor of Pharmacy graduate in each pharmacy school graduating class across the nation. In addition, I graduated top of my class as an undergraduate student with Summa Cum Laude (BS. Chemistry, Albany State University, 2010). Also, I graduated with a Magna Cum Laude (BSc. Natural Resources, University of Science and Technology, 2005). I aspire to become an academic pharmacist, teach in one of the world's leading universities, and train the next generation of highly competent pharmacists. In pharmacy school, I was a Presidential Excellence Scholar for 4 years, a Teaching Assistant for 1 year, a Peer Mentor for 4 years, and a past president of the KGI School of Pharmacy Tutoring Team. In May 2018, I was voted as the Third-Year Student Pharmacist of the Year. This award is given to only one student in each pharmacy class based on academic excellence, and contributions to leadership, service and/or research. You may reach out to me for consultation if you need expert assistance in general chemistry or organic chemistry for College students or AP/General Chemistry tutoring for High School students.
Some of the students I have tutored in the past attended or currently attend schools like the Claremont colleges, UCLA, USC, UC Berkeley, United States Naval Academy, Cal-Poly-Pomona, Azusa Pacific, and several others. Also, I have volunteered as a tutor for colleagues and students more than I have tutored for money! It is the ultimate satisfaction that I get whenever I help a student with a C or failing class grade to finish with a B+ or better that drives me to tutor. It is the spirit in me that seeks perfection and satisfaction in others and in whatever I do that motivates me to tutor.
Hit or Miss? Definitely a Hit!
During my first tutoring session with Kofi, he made it clear that it is important to obtain a clear understanding of the concepts and why specific events happen. I had no idea what to expect because my only experience with O-Chem was through a book with no lecture. Kofi is an excellent tutor. He is patient, respectful, very clear, and knows his stuff! I loved that if I had even the slightest bit of doubt in my voice, he would revisit the material until I understood. From what I can tell during my first lesson, Kofi does not take it easy on his students. He will tell you what you need to know for success. Trust him and everything will make sense. Kofi has helped me accomplish a strong base that will later be built upon the further we go. Before our first session I told Kofi that I had no interest in O-Chem and actually dislike it. However, after our first session I quite enjoyed the subject. He makes it fun! I would recommend Kofi if you are looking for a passionate, knowledgeable, and strong teacher.Alexandria, 2 lessons with KofiTutor responded:
Hello Alexandria, Thank you so much for this wonderful, and genuine feedback! I am glad that you now see the bright side of organic chemistry. It can definitely be fun, if you approach it the right way. You are a very intelligent lady, considering the fact that you are taking this course online, and as such almost everything you knew before we met was self-taught. I am glad you gave me the opportunity to assist you, and to help deepen your understanding of the key concepts of o-chem. Keep working hard, and I am confident you will do very well in the course. Stay in touch, and stay blessed! Kofi
Experienced, patient, and knowledgeable tutor!
Kofi is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about chemistry. He is patient and experienced. He truly desires for students to attain success. Mr. Kofi is an amazing teacher and was able to explain tough concepts easily.Shazmeen, 1 lesson with KofiTutor responded:
Thank you for your kind words, Shazmeen. I am glad I was able to assist your sister. I have no doubt that she will gain a strong foundation in chemistry. I will always assist when needed. Stay blessed! Kofi
Excellent chemistry tutor!
My daughter got behind in AP Chemistry because of her participation in school trip to Europe followed by missing a week of school due to illness. She was losing hope. Thanks to Kofi, she is building her confidence back up because she understands what he is teaching her. We had some bad chem tutors we hired in the past. Many claim to know chemistry but when they arrived my daughter had to correct them with their mistakes. Kofi doesn't need any books because he knows the material inside and out. He is better than the rest. Thank you, Kofi!George, 1 lesson with KofiTutor responded:
Hello Mr. George, Thank you for your generous review. It was definitely a pleasure meeting your wife and daughter for chemistry tutoring. Your family is very appreciative! You daughter is an intelligent student and with sustained hard work, she will achieve greater heights. Please keep encouraging her. I will be available to assist whenever our schedules allow each. Thank you, and stay blessed!!
Great Biochem tutor!!!
Dr. Kofi explained the concepts and principles of biochemistry so well! I was so scared to go to class before I had a lesson with Dr. Kofi and now I am excited to attend my class and take my exam! I am very happy I have taken Biochemistry years ago and I have never understood Biochem this well he teaches in a way that you don’t have to memorize all but to understand it by heart and made it much simpler to understand. Thank you so much and I will make sure to recommend Dr Kofi to all people that are struggling to learn Biochemistry.Cristina, 1 lesson with KofiTutor responded:
Thank you for your nice review, Cristina. Keep studying and practicing. I am glad I was able to help. Kofi
Very help and patient
Amazing session and understood everything after the session. Dr. Kofi is very knowledgeable and is enthusiast about chemistry. That is amazing because help me love organic chemistry even more.Faith, 1 lesson with KofiTutor responded:
Thank you for your nice review, Faith. Keep the light burning. Kofi
Very thorough and passionate!
Kofi was so accommodating to my schedule and was very thorough! I had printed my biochemistry lectures slides, and he made sure to cover the slides in depth. He also provided great tips of possible test questions to look out for. He tutors in a lecture-like structure and encourages you to dig for answers and reason them out. I will keep seeing him!Theresa, 2 lessons with KofiTutor responded:
Thank you for such generous feedback, Theresa. It was a pleasure working with you. Keep up the good work. I will always do my best to assist you. Stay blessed!
Kofi explained to me all concepts in a very simple way to understand. He made sure that I understood every concept before moving on.Julia, 2 lessons with KofiTutor responded:
Thank you for your appreciation, Julia. I am glad that I was able to assist you. Keep up the good work. I have no doubt that you will get a strong foundation in chemistry to prep you for neuropsych. :-)
Very Knowledgeable and Kind
Kofi and I worked on acids and bases and chemical equilibrium. The way he explained the concepts was phenomenal. He taught me shortcuts that I never knew before.Varun, 1 lesson with KofiTutor responded:
Thank you for your kind feedback, Varun! Keep up the good work. I will always do my best to assist you. KA
First impression of Kofi was his passion for the subject. I’ve been completely lost and confused in my organic chemistry class for the past 3 weeks. He helped me make connections between functional groups for better understanding over memorization. I can honestly say that I retained a good amount of information from him in just one session.Jessica, 1 lesson with Kofi
Patient and friendly
Kofi teached me chemistry and in just 2 hours of lesson he transmitted me passion for this beautiful subject. During the lesson I was comfortable asking question when I didn't understand and he was very patient and he supported me.Stefano, 2 lessons with KofiTutor responded:
Hello Stefano, thank you for your nice review. I really appreciate that. I hope by the time you return back to Italy, your chemistry foundation will be very strong. Let me know if you need any assistance. Thank you.
