About Hovhannes

Hi everyone! My name is Hovhannes, and I am very excited to be your tutor. I am junior at UCLA and major in mollecular, cell, and developmental biology. I recently joined biophysics research lab and pursue to understand consciousness through understanding neural circuits and connections. I have been tutoring inorganic/organic chemistry both at Valley and at Pierce Colleges for about 2 years as well as AP/SAT biology, AP calculus and Physics (mechanics) for few months at EdBoost center in Culver City. I am CRLA certified tutor, which means you can be confident about not only my academic skills but also teaching skills. In May 2015 I received Chemistry award from Pierce College for outstanding performance in General Chemistry.In addition, I have worked at Pierce College Chemistry department as a laboratory technician for a year, where I gained a great experience in the field.

Deep conceptual understanding of the subject and experience in the field makes it possible for me to make real life connections with any topic of the subject for my students. It is much easier to learn something that is so closely related to our day-to-day life. I am very enthusiastic about tutoring, and my emphasis is on conceptual understanding of the subject.

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 completed General Chemistry sequence with an excellent grades. I have been tutoring chemistry both at Pierce and at Valley Colleges for more than a year. I have a Chemistry award from Pierce College for an outstanding performance in General Chemistry. I am CRLA certified tutor. I have been working as a Chemistry laboratory technician at Pierce College for a year.

Organic Chemistry

I have taken a semester of organic chemistry at Valley college, and a quarter of organic chemistry at UCLA where I received an A. I have been tutoring organic chemistry at Valley college for more than 6 months. The first steps of understanding ochem is to be able to visualize 3D structures of various molecules and just in general how they behave in 3D world. I have noticed that this is what new students have most trouble with because they try to approach ochem the same way as general chemistry but it's not very useful. I help students struggling in ochem by stressing the important concepts and developing the new way of approaching problems that is essential for success in ochem.

He was able to explain 4 weeks into 3 hours. Hovhannes stayed on the topic until I understood the concept being taught, then when he saw I was ready he moved on to the next topic, we did. I'm extremely thankful for session.
