About Jordan

Experience:

Jordan is a chemistry professor with over 10 years of college teaching, tutoring, and mentoring experience. Students like to work with Jordan because he clearly breaks down difficult material, making it intuitive. He also makes chemistry tangible by showing the connection between lesson material and everyday examples. Parents like to work with Jordan because he is dedicated to helping students, and he reinforces subject matter through frequent quizzing, extra homework, and outside-of-lesson feedback. His high school students have moved on to prestigious undergraduate programs at the Universities of California at San Diego, Berkeley, and Irvine (UCI) and his college students to the theoretical chemistry Ph.D. program at Virginia Tech.

Miscellaneous:

In his Ph.D. work, Jordan developed new theoretical methods to predict important photochemical bond breaking. His developments are used to understand the behavior of materials relevant to catalysis and air pollution. This work involved applying the principles of physics, chemistry, calculus, and other higher mathematics on a regular basis. Furthermore, Jordan's broad perspective on the field of chemistry comes from his work at a number of institutions including Princeton University, Georgia Tech, and both Los Alamos and Oak Ridge National Laboratories. Jordan has co-authored several scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals and has reported his work at a number of international conferences.

Fun:

As the seventh born of nine children, Jordan developed a unique capability to connect with almost anyone. When he's not talking in the third person, Jordan enjoys traveling and spending time with his wife, friends and family.

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 am a college chemistry professor with over 10 years experience teaching and tutoring the subject. My students/parents praise me for my clear explanations, thoroughness, and my dedication to producing strong outcomes.

Practically Perfect in Every Way

My teenaged son has had 11 math tutoring lessons with Jordan so far, and I expect we'll call Jordan anytime he needs additional help with math or science. We've asked Jordan to help with both Honors Geometry and Algebra II/Trig, and he knows these subjects thoroughly. He's easy to reach, incredibly accommodating, and has an easy, friendly, effective style. My son looks forward to working with J
