About Chris

Hmm, where to start? My name is Chris and I’m relatively new to the WyzAnt family. I have a well-established career working as an organic chemist and love every minute of it. Basically my job is to create new medications by following the fundamental principles of organic chemistry. With all the success I have achieved in my career, I now want to “give-back” and help students struggling in the field of chemistry. Who knows, I might even be able to convert a student or two into future scientists.

A brief bio:
I graduated high school with a 4.18 GPA and attended the University of Nebraska on a full-tuition academic scholarship. It’s here where my enthusiasm for chemistry first began. After graduating with a B.S. in Chemistry (3.95 GPA) and receiving an accolade of chemistry-related awards, I then earned a M.S. in Pharmaceutical Sciences (3.80 GPA). I have worked full-time as an organic chemist for the past ten years, authored multiple chemistry-related papers/patents, and presented my research at numerous scientific venues.

What separates me from other chemistry tutors is my real world experience. I live-and-breathe chemistry 40 hrs/week in a lab and am very passionate about it. Whereas other tutors teach multiple subject areas and have only a theoretical working knowledge of chemistry, I can use my own personal experiences to better explain why atoms behave the way they do.

Cheers,

Chris

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.

Organic Chemistry

I received an A.C.S.-certified B.S. degree in Chemistry, which consisted of two semesters basic organic chemistry and two semesters advanced organic chemistry. In addition, I earned a M.S. degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences in which my thesis project was heavily involved in organic synthesis. Furthermore, I have worked as an organic chemist for the past seven years and am very passionate about it. I have authored several publications relating to this subject matter and have daily discussions about it with my coworkers. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss with you my qualifications should you have any questions.
