Bio

I am Michelle. I graduated with my B.S. in Chemistry with honors/ magna cum laude from Stony Brook University in 2010. I spent 3 years at Stony Brook as an undergraduate teaching assistant. I spent one year as a help room TA working with students with their online homework for the general chemistry sequence.

I am Michelle. I graduated with my B.S. in Chemistry with honors/ magna cum laude from Stony Brook University in 2010. I spent 3 years at Stony Brook as an undergraduate teaching assistant. I spent one year as a help room TA working with students with their online homework for the general chemistry sequence. I spent 2 years leading small discussion sections of 9 students with problem solving skills in general chemistry.

I further pursued my PhD studies at the University of California- San Diego where I have spent the past 6 years studying organic synthesis and the synthesis of natural products. I am passionate about organic chemistry and have been a graduate teaching assistant for the organic chemistry courses/ lab over the past 6 years. Over the past year I have started focusing on 1-on-1 tutoring and help students develop problem solving skills so they can tackle the subject and improve their grades. I am CIRTL (Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning) certified in teaching which was a seminar style course which focuses on how students learn and how to develop lesson plans and course to be a more effective instructor.

I have researched and taught the subject of chemistry and organic chemistry for almost 10 years. I am passionate about teaching and organic chemistry and hope you feel the same way.

Please feel free to contact me and I would be happy to setup tutoring with you.

Super knowledgeable

She helped me grasp concepts I just wasn't getting. She was very patient with me. She went over Bronstead acid and bases and Lewis acid and bases. She helped me draw them correctly and give them the right charges.

Darlene, 1 lesson with Michelle

Pleasant, personable, and knowledgeable

I had Organic Chemistry II tutoring session with Michelle. She helped me with solving home work problems and reviewing some concepts. She is very good at explaining and solving the problems. She responded very quickly to my request as it was during my finals time and I thank her for that. Some tutors request that students send the prep material in advance but that was not the case with Michelle which speaks for her thorough knowledge in the subject. I thank her for all the help and I do recommend her to all those who need help with O-chem II problems and concepts.

Serena, 1 lesson with Michelle

Very solid tutor! Knows her material and helps you along the way.

We did COSY NMR which was not easy. It took me all day watching videos, and looking through my textbook and not getting it. Michelle once got my questions worked it out in like 15 minutes and went over it in our session so easily. I have had tutors but no one like Michelle! I'd totally recommend Michelle for your OChem problems!

Knows her stuff inside and out!

Michelle helped and walked me through various chemical mechanisms, and delved into the little things that are usually overlooked. Very nice and patient. Thanks Michelle!

Best tutor ever!

Michelle is the best tutor ever! We have conquered introductory organic chemistry. I could not have done it without her (I would have given up a long time ago). Patient and so smart. Thank you!

Susan, 27 lessons with Michelle

Great knowledgeable and patient tutor!

Michelle was extremely knowledgeable and good at explaining! She's a great tutor and helped explain concepts simply but also get to the root of the questions. We covered a lot in more 1 session
