About Brian

Hi, my name is Brian and I have tutored college chemistry for the past 3 years! I earned a BA in chemistry and graduated at the top of my department. I am friendly and understand the students individual need. I believe in teaching the students to understand the fundamental concept. By learning the fundamental concept the students will be able to apply it to any scenario. My schedule and prices are very flexible!

I was the head supplemental instructor and I have had the privilege of inventing a sincere and motivational space for those who desire to better understand science. Effectively relating to my tutees meant combining science with mutual topics of interest. For example, I decided to relate chemistry to typical college party:

Diffusion is the movement of substance from high concentration to low concentration. We can determine the relative rate at which particles diffuse. Let's say that Gabe knew this cute girl Stacy was going to a party. He drenched a bottle of cologne all over his collar in the hopes of impressing her. The principle component in the cologne is ethanol. When Gabe arrived at the party, he became extremely nervous and let out a little flatulence, which has the principle component of methane. Since, methane has a low molecular weight, it will diffuse faster to Stacy's nose first. I'm sorry Gabe, I don't think Stacy will be interested.

By creating an environment where I listen and employ mutual interest and personal conversation, I am able to assist my students in their academic performances.
