About Michael

I am a recent graduate of The University of St. Thomas (2015) with a B.S. in chemistry. My interest and experience in tutoring stems from my college years when I became infatuated with organic chemistry. This was due to my experience as an undergraduate researcher in a group of 12-15 students each summer and school year. In this lab, students performed organic synthesis in order to create compounds for research and development. My senior year I worked full time as the lab manager of this research group while finishing my course work.

I enjoyed mentoring the students on their various research projects and helping them with coursework. It was a rewarding experience to be able watch the progress of these students as they went from tentative and inexperienced, to confident and knowledgeable researchers. Most of the students from this research group have gone on to medical or graduate school and that has been exciting to be a part of as well.

My approach to learning the language of organic chemistry will not be focused on brute memorization, although this will be necessary for certain aspects of the course. Rather, I will focus on a few recurring basic concepts through out the course that, if understood, can be applied to ever more complex situations. I will also provide test taking strategies for the various sections that arise throughout course. O-Chem does not have to be a terrible experience and I would like to share that with you!

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 received an A in both O-chem I/II as well as O-spec. I was a lab TA for O-chem I and II. I Did synthetic organic chemistry research for 5 years including one as a full time lab manager for the largest lab at UST (15 undergraduates). The ACS awarded me as the most outstanding senior organic chemist at UST. I worked as a medicinal chemist at Eli Lilly synthesizing a variety of novel research pharmaceuticals.
