I have a Ph.D and M.S. in biochemistry, my specialty being bio-organic chemistry. I was a professor at a prestigious four-year liberal arts college where I taught upper division biochemistry and organic chemistry. I have taught and tutored chemistry at MSJC and other colleges. I LOVE teaching, and always have from the very beginning. There is no greater fulfillment than helping a student to achieve their academic goals.

I have a Ph.D and M.S. in biochemistry, my specialty being bio-organic chemistry. I was a professor at a prestigious four-year liberal arts college where I taught upper division biochemistry and organic chemistry. I have taught and tutored chemistry at MSJC and other colleges. I LOVE teaching, and always have from the very beginning. There is no greater fulfillment than helping a student to achieve their academic goals. My teaching specialty is taking the fear out of chemistry- particularly organic chemistry and biochemical pathways, to show you how to understand the logic behind the reactions and pathways and thus to minimize memorization. With chemistry in general I can show you how it's really nothing more than applied common sense. I can do this with math as well. There will always be some amount of memorization, but I can show you where it's important, where it's not, and how to achieve it. But it's the understanding that I emphasize.
I will not lecture to you. I will instead guide you to achieve a greater understanding that you will acquire through your own thought processes. I will do whatever it takes to make sure you understand the material, so long as you are also willing to put in the effort. I also won't be a minute stickler. If it takes a little more time to cover the material, and you're really trying, I'll stay for it and I won't charge you for the extra time.
Because of my 24 years in the medical device industry where I applied chemical concepts on an almost daily basis, I can also show you the relevance of chemistry to medicine and other "real-world" situations.
Although I do not have a history degree, I have been studying European History for 25 years (post-Roman through WW2) and I know how to make the subject fun and interesting (think Game of Thrones!).

Excellent Tutor! Better than my teacher!
Mr. Scott M. is a superb tutor. Nothing compares to the lessons that he provides. He is extremely well versed in ALL aspects of chemistry. I had asked him to tutor me in AP Chemistry. It went very well. I went from disliking the material in the class to actually enjoying it! I loved learning from him. So much so, that I wished he was a teacher at my school. Mr. Scott M. is remarkable, friendly and kind. He is able to help the student even when the student feels hopeless. I have a huge test coming up in the class and with Scott's help I know I can go from thinking I will not pass it, to passing it with flying colors. Thank you Scott! Your help is much appreciated!Chelsea, 4 lessons with Scott

Professional and knowledgeable tutor
Scott had great communication with us, he was punctual, and he really helped our son grasp the material for his AP Chemistry class. We will definitely be hiring him again in the near future!Stacie, 5 lessons with Scott
Awesome Chemistry Tutor!
My daughter needed help to get through IB Chemistry. Scott is great at teaching the basics through the more complicated concepts.Jane, 5 lessons with Scott
One of the best tutors we have ever had!
Scott did an outstanding job with my son. Not only did he answer all questions, but he actually spent the time to teach the materials. My son has had no chemistry in over 4 years and felt overwhelmed and hopeless....until we met Scott. Now he has hope and is actually beginning to understand the materials. We plan to meet with Scott weekly throughout the semester.Diane, 7 lessons with Scott
Knowledgeable and Outstanding Tutor
During the first Chemistry tutoring lesson, he provided me with a lot of good information that was relevant to my first assignments. Explained the information so that it was very easy to comprehend.Shelley, 22 lessons with Scott
