Chemistry Tutor with High School Teaching Experience
I have four years experience working as a high school chemistry teacher and taught the school’s three levels of College-Prep, Honors, and AP Chemistry. I designed the curriculum, assessments, and other resources for these courses and gained experience working with students of a variety of skill levels.

I have four years experience working as a high school chemistry teacher and taught the school’s three levels of College-Prep, Honors, and AP Chemistry. I designed the curriculum, assessments, and other resources for these courses and gained experience working with students of a variety of skill levels. Prior to working as a teacher, I worked at a private tutoring center and helped students in chemistry, algebra, and ACT Math and Science. I graduated summa cum laude from college (GPA 3.93/4.00) and took numerous education classes that were part seminar and part placement in a high school classroom. These classes introduced me to the strategies and approaches to take in working with students and allowed me to put these into practice in actual classrooms. More recently during the pandemic I have moved back to private online chemistry tutoring and have used my teaching experience to help students on an individual level to achieve their academic goals.
I spent a lot of time developing and refining the curriculum and resources and thinking about how to best deliver these to students to allow them to develop a solid understanding of the material. I still utilize many of these resources including homework sets, lecture slides, and different levels of assessments while tutoring students, and I will also use any resources provided by students/parents. In my first year of teaching AP Chemistry in 2019 my class of 24 students showed a 100% pass rate and had an average score of 4.29 on the AP Exam. In 2020, I had 14 of 15 students earn a passing score on the AP Exam.
While teaching it was important for me to be very available to my students and I take the same approach with tutoring so I will quickly respond to messages and can work at your convenience. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule a lesson.

Very prepared and helpful
Jordan is a fantastic tutor. He makes AP Chem so much easier for my daughter. He is very organized, focused and efficient, and he zeroes in on what kids need to know. We highly recommend Jordan for chemistry tutoring.Maggie , 22 lessons with Jordan
Knowledgeable and Efficient
My son has never worked with a tutor before and was a bit nervous about his first session. We were able to get an appointment with Jordan on short notice, and with very little information to go on prior to meeting, he seemed to know exactly what type of help was needed. We expected it might take a couple different tutors to figure out best fit, but my son was ready to schedule another session right away. Would highly recommend Jordan for chemistry help!Karen, 2 lessons with Jordan
Helped my daughter see the value if tutoring. She went in not understanding at all and with Jordan’s post lesson feedback she know what she needs to practice. Thank you!!Sangeet, 3 lessons with Jordan
Knowledgeable and patient tutor
Chemistry and he so patient and explains the concepts so I can easily understand. He is readily available at different times when I need him before exams and labsJoann, 6 lessons with Jordan
Absolutely the most patient teacher I’ve ever had
I have a processing disorder but I’m determined to succeed. This tutor works with me, going over every step in AP Chemistry and he doesn’t stop until I completely understand. What makes him the best teacher is how he tries to understand how my brain is working and where I’m making mistakes, so that I actually learn. Most teachers just want you to say you understand so they can go on to their next lesson but he is so patient and so determined to actually teach me that he won’t go on until I can show him that I completely get it. I wish my high school teachers were half the teacher he is and I feel lucky to be able to work with him. His time with me is worth every penny. My parents are thrilled and my mom is an university literature and writing teacher who is so happy to see teachers out there who are as patient and thorough as he is with me. He also tutors my twin sister, but she learns much faster than I do. And, she is so happy to have him as a tutor as well. Our actual AP Chemistry teacher is nice but she rarely asks if we understand anything. He actually cares that we learn so we will pass the AP Chemistry test.Olivia, 5 lessons with Jordan
We went over trends of the periodic table and I felt my understanding of the topic increased from 15% to 85%. I still get tripped up if I thought too much, but it definitely helped a lot.Jessica, 2 lessons with Jordan
great first session
Jordan tutored my 15 year old daughter on honors chemistry last week, and she found his teaching extremely helpful. Chemistry is her weakest subject, but after a session with him she felt confident and prepared for her test. she appreciates his clear instruction, and we will be scheduling more sessions with him in the futureRuijie, 2 lessons with Jordan
Knowledgable and thorough
I hired Jordan to work with my son in High School chemistry. My son felt the experience was helpful and I appreciated Jordan's follow-up details to let me know what is suggested. I would definitely plan to continue to use him.Steve, 2 lessons with Jordan
Great tutor, Extremely knowledgeable
Jordan tutored my daughter in Honors Chemistry. He explained the material in a clear way so she was able to better understand her homework. It was obvious that he had a very good understanding of chemistry as he was easily able to answer all of her questions. We look forward to working with Jordan again.Anisha, 2 lessons with Jordan
Knowledgable and relatable!
He knows a lot about the subject and knows how to relate difficult chemistry concepts. He has helped me with homework as well as test prep. We use him on a weekly basis! Thanks Jordan!Charmaine, 12 lessons with Jordan
