About Andrew


Bio

Hi I'm Andrew! I graduated cum laude at UC Davis in 2016 with a major in Chemistry. I had arrived at Davis as an engineer but switched to chemistry because organic chemistry was easily my favorite class! I had done research and been published as an undergraduate with plans of pursuing a PhD. I was part of a PhD program at UCLA where I realized research wasn't for me. However, as a graduate student, part of my responsibilities was to be a teaching assistant (TA). It was here that I developed...

Hi I'm Andrew! I graduated cum laude at UC Davis in 2016 with a major in Chemistry. I had arrived at Davis as an engineer but switched to chemistry because organic chemistry was easily my favorite class! I had done research and been published as an undergraduate with plans of pursuing a PhD. I was part of a PhD program at UCLA where I realized research wasn't for me. However, as a graduate student, part of my responsibilities was to be a teaching assistant (TA). It was here that I developed an appreciation for teaching and an understanding of where students might struggle, especially when their professor has a style of teaching that does not suit them. I really gained a passion for teaching organic chemistry as a TA and hope to continue to do so as a tutor.

As a TA at UCLA, I taught a number of classes through my first two years. I taught five quarters of organic chemistry and three quarters of advanced lab courses. The students in those classes were usually sophomores and juniors with chemistry or biochemistry majors. The level of knowledge was varied, from junior college transfers who had already taken some organic chemistry to pre-med students who just wanted enough to pass the MCAT. As for my own knowledge, apart from teaching organic chemistry, I took these same courses as an undergraduate, took advanced versions of these course as a graduate student at UCLA, and then took the advanced courses again when obtaining my Master's degree in Chemistry from Ohio University.

With this knowledge and experience I really hope to help students achieve their goals in organic chemistry and be that resource that helps them be confident going into the final, MCAT, ect. I have a relatively flexible schedule and will try to fit into yours as much as possible. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson!

Super knowledgeable and a great teaching method

Andrew helped me with aromaticity and helped me to work through my homework problems with benzene reactions and addition reactions. He has a great way of explaining things and breaks it down so that it’s understandable!

Awesome Tutor!

He was super helpful and patient teaching organic chemistry! I had been struggling for 3 weeks to understand the material and with Andrew’s help I got it in 2 hours. Definitely will ask him for help again!

Great session!

Andrew is a great tutor! We had only one session so far, but I already feel better about my org chem 1 material. We specifically worked on conformations and Newman projections by going over practice problems and reviewing main theoretical concepts! Would definitely recommend Andrew as your chem tutor! He knows his stuff!!!

Patient and Knowledgeable

He really helped me understand the concepts and went through the problems multiple times for me. I feel more confident for my next test and I’m sure the book again!

Friendly and patient

Andrew helped me understand the mechanisms of a pH based extraction I did for lab. He was knowledgeable and familiar with the material, which was very helpful.
