About Amy

Hi, I'm a Ph.D. Chemist with fifteen years of experience teaching and tutoring undergraduate Organic Chemistry. A multitude of such students have approached me over the years feeling frustrated about Organic Chemistry. Often, they would begin by telling me how many copious hours they have spent studying for their exam, quiz, etc. From my experience, this is due to studying the wrong way.

A student's first inclination is often to memorize bond breakage and formation, and this methodology culminates in confusion and distress. The answers are in the mechanisms... I can show students how to deconstruct reactions to their underlying principles, and apply this fundamental knowledge to understand and predict molecular behavior.

I enjoy helping students achieve success in Organic Chemistry. If you or someone you know is in need of extra help with this subject, I hope you will reach out to me!

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 a Ph.D. in Computational Chemistry, and my teaching specialization is Organic Chemistry. I have taught Organic Chemistry at three universities and tutored individuals as well as small groups since 1998. I understand that not all of my students taking Organic Chemistry are trying to become Chemists, but that a good performance in this course can be essential for their future plans.

Great tutor! — I contacted Amy with only 4 days until my 2nd orgo exam and I was in dire need of help. She immediately got back to me and even though it was such short notice, she offered to help me as much as she could (both in-person and skype). After working with her for two weeks, my grades on the exams and final significantly improved. Not only does she answer any specific questions that I have but she also ...
