The best indicator of whether a tutor will be right for you is to see the reviews from previous students and their parents. If that looks good then speak to the prospective tutor. Then, if it still looks good you have to give it a try; i.e., schedule a session. A tutor can write anything to entice you but the proof can be found only after you have had a session whereupon you will know if he /she is right for you. Wyzant guarantees the first session. I guarantee every session. Moreover, my students save money because they require fewer sessions, i.e. I develop in them the basic skills and confidence to go it alone. On exam day, a confident student is the best indication of a good tutor - period.
I have three degrees; i.e., BS, MS and PHD.

Stephen is a very great tutor. Always was prepared to teach me what I asked him to help me understand. He teaches in a very understanding way. Highly recommend to anyone with problems in Chemistry!
Stephen is a very respectful tutor who makes sure that you understand the topic before progressing to the next. He has helped my son tremendously; his grade went from a C to a high B. If we had him as a tutor earlier, he would definitely have an A. Getting my son this tutor was well worth it.
We are over the moon excited that the time, help and strategies Stephen provided played a big part in the successful score on the SAT Critical Reading portion. Stephen is patient and knowledgeable and wants to be certain his students understand the questions/answers before moving forward.
Very thorough in explaining things. Makes sure to recap what was discussed in a previous session so that the information is consolidated. Provides tricks and tips to help make the information easier to understand and memorize. I would highly recommend Stephen for tutoring.
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.
BS, MS and PHD in 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.
