About Glen

My experience with chemistry coursework comes from my other jobs, mostly teaching. I teach an introductory chemistry online virtual lab course at Mount Saint Mary's College (Los Angeles), a face-to-face chemistry laboratory section at East Los Angeles College, and an environmental studies course for non-majors at Woodbury University (Burbank). I also give technical assistance to K-12 science teachers with their hands-on lab activities, via a non-profit organization in Los Angeles.

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., 1997).

When working in person, I let the student decide the way the work should flow. Some students learn better when I use computer animation simulations of chemical processes, such as the programs on the Phet.Colorado.Edu website; other students learn better when I bring some lab equipment to them, for simple, safe experiments; many students just want my technical help on paper, while finishing their homework or while completing some review problems.

When working online, I use video chat, shared electronic whiteboards, and other such collaboration tools. This way, meeting times with students can be much more flexible and even late-night sessions are feasible. Some students have preferred to have me record short YouTube videos for them, in which I have explained a problem's solution in a step-by-step way which the students can play back and share at will. I bill online work at half of my usual rate.

Thank you for looking me up!

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.

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
