About Josh

I was a graduate student at UC Davis for 3 years. In my time there, I was a teaching assistant in general and organic chemistry.

I led many discussion sections and review sessions during my time as a TA, preparing lectures and creating practice problems. Over the last two years I have been a private tutor for about forty undergraduate students, gaining experience in how to approach different types of learning styles and catering to them. Oftentimes, a student will find it difficult to understand chemistry simply due to a lack of problem solving skills or deficiencies in basic math and science. Recently, I have become more familiar with the general and organic chemistry curriculum in Ventura County colleges and have gained expertise in showing students methods that not only make the material much easier to grasp, but also give students a better basis for understanding chemistry.

I am very approachable, and believe that any student can gain at least a basic understanding of chemistry. I have seen many students go from believing they had no chance of passing organic chemistry to drawing reaction mechanisms confidently. Often, once students get past initial hurdles, they gain better intuition for understanding chemistry concepts as the class progresses. Let me know if you need help in general/organic chemistry or biochemistry.

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.

Organic Chemistry

I tutored and was a teaching assistant for upper division and lower division organic chemistry courses at UC Davis for two years. I earned a master's degree at UC Davis in chemistry. I am familiar with the organic chemistry curriculum and my goal during tutoring is to make difficult concepts more accessible to students with various learning styles.
