About Wyeth

I am a former university chemistry professor with 8 years of tutoring experience. My tutoring clients have been undergraduates, high school students and people pursuing professional certificates that require chemistry, organic chemistry and MRI physics backgrounds (I am a registered MRI technologist).

I am very good at diagnosing problems that can be easily corrected by students leading to long term success in chemistry. Many students struggle with early concepts that keep appearing in more advanced material. Once they understand these they usually don't need much additional help.

I feel a successful tutoring session should empower students and lead to the need for less and less outside help. I provide additional practice problems with answers for students to master concepts covered in my sessions.

Let me summarize my philosophy: The Best Tutoring Leads to Less Tutoring!

I will provide my extensive teaching resume on request as well as all my teaching references. I can provide my teaching philosophy if desired.

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.

Chemistry

I have a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Texas at Austin. I was a TA for four years there teaching General and Organic Chemistry classes and labs. Before graduate school I was hired by the tutoring center to tutor chemistry. I did this for three years.

Recently, I was an adjunct professor of Chemistry at the University of San Francisco where I taught Organic and Pre-Chemistry (review of high school chemistry) as well as labs for General and Organic Chemistry.

I have prior experience working with high school students and good success. Most students only need help with a few core concepts.

Organic Chemistry

I taught organic chemistry, organic chemistry laboratory and organic chemistry laboratory for majors at the University of San Francisco as an adjunct professor of chemistry 2009-2010.

I hold a PhD from the University of Texas in Organic Chemistry and served as a post doctoral teaching assistant for an organic chemistry section, lecturing to 200+ students when the professor was away or busy. I also graded, held office hours and wrote the PowerPoint lectures for the course.

3 years as a teaching assistant for Organic Chemistry laboratory sections, teaching the conceptual portion of the lab, holding office hours and grading.

I was hired at my undergraduate institution, Pacific Lutheran University, to tutor general and organic chemistry.
