Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Biochemistry

I have taught biochemistry classes at the college level and know the material well. It is generally half introductory material and the processes: replication, transcription and translation and half metabolic pathways: glycolysis, Kreb's and oxidative phosphorylation being emphasized.

Chemistry

I have extensive experience teaching and tutoring chemistry. I have taught chemistry for 16 years.

Organic Chemistry

Organic chemistry is the chemistry of carbon. It is mostly about syntheses and mechanisms. My Ph.D. is in organic chemistry. I have taught and tutored organic chemistry many times at the college level and know the material quite well.

Still doesn't love it but, he will survive the rest of the year. ...
