I have four years experience working as a high school chemistry teacher and taught the school’s three levels of AP, Honors, and College-Prep 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 AP, Honors, and College-Prep 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. Since then I have moved to online chemistry tutoring and have worked with hundreds of students over 1,900+ hours on Wyzant.

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 will work with you to find a convenient time that works with our schedules. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule a session.

Chemistry

I have four years experience working as a high school chemistry teacher and taught the school’s three levels of AP, Honors, and College-Prep Chemistry. I designed the curriculum, assessments, and other resources for these courses and refined them to most effectively deliver material to students. I also have several years experience tutoring chemistry to students on an individual level, including 1,900+ hours on Wyzant. My tutoring approach focuses on both the why and how of chemistry as I will explain to students both chemical principles and how to apply these principles in solving problems.

Knowledgeable and helpful

We are very happy to have found Jordan. My daughter had a Chemistry test the next day and he was very accommodating with our last minute request. My daughter learned a lot from him just from the first class. He is a good teacher and we highly recommend him.

Amazing Chemistry tutor

My son failed a Chemistry quiz early on in the semester and then barely passed the next, we promptly started tutoring with Jordan and now he has a 91 overall grade in the class. After each session, Jordan sends a summary which gives my son things to focus on when studying, reminders that clarify ideas that may have confused him and take home messages about the topics they covered. I have listened to the recorded sessions and I tell you Jordan is excellent! He has a good rapport with my son, he is patient, he helps him to understand not just memorize and Jordan's approach is very unassuming (not pretentious regarding his prowess with the subject matter) which makes my son feel comfortable asking questions etc. My son and I are amazed how Jordan knows the subject matter like the back of his hand. My son will send him slides or review sheets just before a session. Jordan goes over the material as if he has prepped beforehand. Jordan even utilized his own slides to explain a particular topic more thoroughly. He pulled them up instantly. My son's confidence is back. He enjoys his sessions and recognizes how much they are benefiting him. I can't say enough in praise of Jordan as a tutor.

Great explainer and teacher.

Just after one lesson, Jordan taught me and helped me understand the topics I was struggling on. I went into my test the next day much more confident. He will surely help you with anything you may be struggling on. He is patient and really helps you understand the concept.

Knowledgeable and helpful tutor

My son went through concepts and problems in thermochemistry with Jordan. Jordan was clear in explainIng concepts and also helped him work through a few practice multiple choice problems. For context, my son has met with a couple of different tutors and he has not found anyone helpful until he met with Jordan. This is a first for him and he has said he wants additional sessions with Jordan because he was able to help clarify topics he just didn’t understand! We really appreciate the help Jordan!

great teacher !

Very thorough in explaining all concepts and making AP chem much easier to navigate. Will definitely be utilizing his services more. Thank you for the help.

Subject Expert and Patient.

Jordan taught AP chemistry to my daughter for two sessions. My daughter improved in her class right away. He is patient and subject expert. Also, he answered all my queries and messages right away. He cares about teaching and I definitely recommend him for AP chemistry.

Hetal , 3 lessons with Jordan

Great Teacher!

He always explains everything in a way I can understand. I never feel dumb asking any questions and if I do not understand something he makes sure to find out why and goes over the idea behind it too. I always do better on my AP chem test thanks to him 🤝🤝

Patient and Helpful Tutor

Jordan R. has taught me a lot since I started tutoring with him. He is patient and knows how to answer my questions in a way that is easy to understand. He also has lots of material to go over using examples that also make the learning a lot easier and he breaks down the problems in the areas that I have trouble with. Strongly recommend.
