About Leera

I can help students achieve their goals in chemistry. I have had experience teaching and tutoring range of students from middle school to college. I am able to work with the student to set definable goals and strategies that will allow those goals to be achieved. I enjoy working with students as they become aware of the logic and beauty of chemistry.

I have tutored undergraduates while I was working on my Ph.D. in organic chemistry. I have led group discussions to assist these students to gain a deeper understanding of the concepts. I was also an undergraduate teaching assistant helping students understand the fundamental ideas in introductory general chemistry and organic chemistry. I am very familiar with the AP chemistry curriculum for high school. I can provide help and guidance so that the student can achieve the highest mark on the test. I believe in engaging the student in a discussion based learning. This method allows me to understand the depth of the understanding from where I can then prepare the kinds of questions that will focus on the ideas and concepts that the student finds challenging.
