About Josh

I graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Hopkins with a B.A. in chemistry, and then continued in organic chemistry at Columbia for my Ph.D. I have enjoyed tutoring chemistry and biology since high school, as I find I learn as much explaining concepts as my students. I have also taught a chemistry refresher course to matriculating students at Columbia, and have been a TA for organic chemistry lecture and lab at Columbia and Hopkins.

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.

Biology

I am well-versed in tutoring both chemistry and biology for 10+ years. My graduate and postdoctoral research involved as much hands-on training in molecular biology as synthetic organic chemistry.

Organic Chemistry

I have a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from Columbia and a B.A. in chemistry from Hopkins. I have tutored organic chemistry for 10+ years. What makes me good at collaborative research is my ability to explain concepts and describe my thought processes in detail, to break down concepts and talk about each piece and how it fits into the greater whole.

Amazing tutor!!!! — Josh seriously worked his magic with me! We worked on ochem material for a week straight and I went from being completely clueless to getting the grade I needed. I definitely could not have done it without his help. He is well prepared and is very patient. He has a lot of experience teaching and is able to explain things in a clear manner. I'm very happy with my results and I wish I found him so ...
