About Glen

I teach an introductory chemistry online virtual lab course at Mount Saint Mary's College (Los Angeles), and an environmental studies course at Woodbury University (Burbank). I also give technical assistance to K-12 science teachers with their hands-on lab activities.

I went to UCLA for graduate school in chemistry (M.S., 2009),
UC Davis for training as a science teacher (credential, 2004),
and UC Berkeley for a more general education focused on nutritional sciences (B.S., 1998).

In the way of previous teaching experience, I've had work as a graduate student instructor at UCLA for general chemistry (Chemistry 14A), physical biochemistry (Chemistry 156), and an organic chemistry lab (Chemistry 14BL). I've also taught introductory chemistry courses at East Los Angeles College and Cypress College.

Here is where I excel for you:
I am good at helping students to figure out how to solve chemistry problems, such as on homework, practice exams, or from the textbook. I am also good at helping students to figure out what was going on in the lab experiment that they did or will do. Hire me for technical help like this. Sometimes students need help figuring out how to do online homework, or figuring out the best way to approach multiple-choice problems; I give great help in these activities. Rarely, some students will ask me for help understanding a concept via a chemical demonstration, or they will need some support on an open-ended science project or inquiry-based experiment. I can offer unique services, perspectives and suggestions in these cases, and sometimes I can even bring in some specialized lab equipment and supplies from my own collection to assist.
I have used innovative online tools in some tutoring sessions, such as virtual lab software from the Open Learning Initiative (OLI, by Carnegie Mellon University), and online science learning games (Phet, by University of Colorado).

Thank you for looking me up!

Look no further, the best chemistry tutor ever — I'm sure there are lots of tutors that have excellent knowledge of chemistry, but what good is it if he/she cannot communicate or share that knowledge in an effective manner. Glen has this uncanny ability to break down the problem beyond the original question being asked to the point of the tutee eventually owning the concept. Once you master the concept, successive problems become easy. This is e ...
