About Stephen

Words of advice when selecting a tutor: See that the tutor has degrees in the specific subject which relates to your needs. Look at the tutor's B.S., M.S. and Ph.D degrees. If you need a Chemistry tutor, hire someone with degrees in Chemistry - not Biology or Math! Chemistry is not an easy subject. You need an experienced teacher/tutor to cut through the fog. Once you do that, a high grade (90 or above or an A) is achievable. College Admissions officials say that a high grade in chemistry weighs as much as a high SAT score. I can help you achieve that A.

I have been teaching chemistry for about 20 years most recently at Adelphi University in Garden City, NY. I have also been a private tutor for about the same length of time covering both chemistry and SAT reading and writing.
My students love my style of teaching/tutoring because I have a good sense of where the problems are in understanding the subject material and in solving problems.

My training includes a M.S. in chemistry from Polytechnic University in NY and a Ph.D. in biochemistry from Utah State University. I can provide references relating to students I have tutored who have thanked me for getting them through an otherwise very difficult course.
I can tutor in person or via Wyzant's online platform,

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 spent 10 years teaching organic chemistry as part of either lecture, lab and/or recitation, i.e. homework review, at various colleges including Brooklyn College, St. John's University in Queens, NY and Adelphi University in Garden City, NY.

I also did three postdocs in organic chemistry, i.e. peptide synthesis which is a branch of laboratory based organic synthesis.

Lastly, I have a B.S. and M.S. in chemistry which coursework in advanced organic chem.
