I am a recently graduated analytical/synthetic chemistry student from SDSU. At SDSU I TA'd chemistry courses in general chemistry, beginning analytical chemistry, and organic synthesis laboratory. I have tutored students from high school to college seniors in math, chemistry, and biochemistry over the years. Teaching chemistry is an undeniable passion of mine and I simply enjoy challenging enlightening students who are both new and old to the subject of chemistry and science in general. I will cater to the student's learning style and I'm not afraid to get to the nitty gritty details of the material at hand, no matter how slowly I have to explain things to my students.
I also do SAT, SAT II Math & Chemistry tutoring. The sooner you come to me the better I can prepare you obviously, but I do have success with last minute cram sessions. I specialize in making the material easy to understand and training students to quickly grasp difficult subjects required of the subject through giving examples of real world applications, or simple mnemonics devices. I can assign practice problems of my own that will reinforce the lessons learned as necessary. I like to focus on the mindset of the student, when learning new subjects. By explaining the overall concepts and organizing the course material in sections that have clear and important connections, the student is not daunted by the sheer quantity of new information. Organization of concepts is key!
I have a strong background in organic and inorganic chemistry and I have utilized my knowledge in chemistry and mathematics to solve real world problems in the laboratory. Mostly, I am a young tutor. Having been a student myself for most of my life, I understand better the challenges that students have to face and have come up with unique solutions to such problems. I've been on the student's and the instructor's side of academia and know how the school system truly works.
All of the above directly translates into better grades in class for the students I tutor. I am a recently graduated analytical/synthetic chemistry student from SDSU.

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.
