About Manza

I have a PhD in chemistry from the University of Iowa and two years of postdoctoral research experience at Harvard University in materials chemistry. I currently invest most of my time in the financial sector. Outside of that, my entrepreneurial efforts are focused on writing business proposals in areas of landfill reduction methods and water purification technologies. Tutoring provides an opportunity to share my passion, experience, and knowledge to help those interested in achieving their endeavors! I have over three years of teaching experience in general chemistry and organic chemistry laboratory as a teaching assistant at the University of Iowa. As an undergraduate, I served as a department tutor for college students both young and adult. From my training in education as a teaching assistant and tutor, I gained valuable skills in student motivation, content delivery, assessment, and curriculum development. I strongly believe in the quote by William Arthur Ward, “The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires."

To note, I have a 24-hour cancellation policy. I am happy to meet at the location of preferred interest (e.g. local library, coffee shop). I look forward to hearing from you and getting started!

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.

Organic Chemistry

I have over 12 years of laboratory experience in organic chemistry research. My PhD was about the fundamentals and applications of Co-crystal Methodologies. This work highlighted in the thesis is based on the design and applications of organic self-assembled multi-component crystalline materials in the form of cocrystals and ligand design. I have about 7 publications that involve organic synthesis or solid-state design. Moreover, I served as an instructor of organic chemistry for over 2 years at the University of Iowa, where I created quizzes, homework, grade coursework, and held office hours. More details and copies of my publications are available upon request.
