I enjoy helping students in general chemistry, biochemistry, AP chemistry and any other school chemistry test preparation.

I hold a B.S. in chemistry and M.S. in biochemistry. Using molecular cloning, I have also conducted research in biochemistry and neuroscience laboratories at UC Riverside and San Diego State University. I have extensive teaching experience in college-level general chemistry, biochemistry and neuroscience from three different universities, as well as experience in tutoring individuals at both the high school and college levels. My goal is to help any student understand, summarize, and prepare for comprehensive chemistry exams in order to obtain a desired result in a relatively short amount of time.

I am excited to work with passionate students in achieving their goals!

AP chemistry should be as high-level as a general chemistry course in college. In order to guide students, I have notes and worksheets organized by topic on my website. My AP students solve practice questions from previous exams created by CollegeBoard on each topic. AP chemistry is usually an easier course to approach due to the plethora of information available online and the types of questions on the test administered by CollegeBoard. The SAT chemistry subject test is easier for some students because of the simple question types and shorter proctored test time. Although it often requires many months of organized preparation in order to obtain a score over 90%, I have had some very successful students achieve this in only six to ten weeks. Students lose interest in the subject primarily because of a poor understanding of stoichiometry. Once they understand the concepts of a mole and of molarity, most of them are comfortable with solving comprehensive questions in more advanced topics. In order to help students, I teach a fairly simple approach to Lewis dot structures, and utilize model kits to simulate molecular geometry. I also introduce a shortcut to hybridization that many students find to be helpful.

Mrs. O is definitely one of the best AP chemistry tutors in my opinion!

When I first began AP Chemistry, I was not well prepared for the challenges the new material presented me. My grades dropped drastically from my first few unit tests, but Mrs. O patiently helped me with concepts I found confusing. She went over problems with me in detail, step by step, and made sure I recognized the process of how to begin questions I found challenging. My grades saw a lot of improvement; I went from low 70s to high 90s in my test scores, and my grade in the class became higher with each unit. Thank you so much Mrs. O for all your help and dedication!

Systematic and patient tutor

Julie taught my son AP Chemistry and he loves how organized, broken into small consumable chunks her lessons always are. She is very prompt in responding to his doubts and is also very patient when explaining. Thank you Julie for working with him on AP Chem.

Julie was a very thoughtful and methodical teacher!

Julie was a very thoughtful and methodical teacher and helped my son, with his preparations for the Chemistry AP exams. She was very focused on building a strong foundation and ensured that he understood the fundamentals. By doing this, she facilitated his understanding and growth with more advanced topics. Highly recommend!

Very Knowledgeable, Organized and Energetic AP Chemistry tutor

One month and a half before the AP Chemistry exam I realized that my school will never finish in time the material for the paper exam of May. Prof. Julie O. came to the rescue. She made a plan and told me how many sessions do I need for a review. Her teaching was articulate and efficient so we finished fast the remaining course material and we started to review. While reviewing, she balanced speed with depth covering the whole material. We did lots of FRQs in detail and with each session I felt more confident. She also gave me homework and she corrected it on her free time. We never got billed for it. Prof. Julie O only asked if I understood her detailed corrections and if I had a problem she went over it once more. Advancing at the right pace, I finished just in time to go and take a 5! I am speedy and I rush making mistakes. Prof. Julie O. also taught in parallel my sister who is always taking her time to explain, so she needs to rush. Somehow, Prof. Julie O. managed to teach both of us to achieve our dreams. As prize for our results, she provided us with more materials to prep for organic chemistry. Thank you so much!

Awesome teacher! 🙂

Julie taught my son AP chemistry. She’s kind, and motivated my son to go beyond his expectations. She explained concepts clearly and had my son do practice problems. She listened and helped clear doubts and misunderstandings. Thank you Julie so much!

Very knowledgeable and patient:)

When it comes to time management, Julie is aware of what she is doing. She focuses on both, my current topic and previous topics which boost my confidence level. Highly recommended! 👍

Caring with amazing patience

Julia is a astonishing tutor. She helps to understand basics of Ap Chemistry units and motivates you to go beyond the limits of learning. I was struggling to grasp basics until Julia explained to me how to face problems and practice on every lesson.

Knowledgeable & Caring.

Julie taught SAT Chemistry to my daughter. Julie taught the material not just from a test-taking perspective but also improved my daughter's understanding of key concepts. Most importantly, she found and eliminated weaknesses in test taking strategy. Overall, my daughter is much more confident about the material and about taking the test.
