About Dimitri

The tutor is an adjunct to the teacher. My tutoring method is to make sure that the student learns in the context of the classroom. My aim in tutoring is to make certain that the student gets a grasp of the subject matter in the direction the teacher is taking him or her. For this, I would go over the notes with the students, check if he or she can remember the questions asked in class, and whether he or she understands the homework being assigned. However, should I detect from my communication with my student that the classroom itself is disruptive, I would introduce new techniques and new approaches to get him or her to get a handle of the course material. To do this, I would analyze the homework assigned, the type of quizzes being given, and the textbook, specially.

It would help for you to know a little bit about my experience in the courses that I am tutoring, I have taught and tutored chemistry and biology, ESL (grammar, reading, and writing); I have taught high school math as well: geometry, trigonometry, algebra, and tutored College Math,etc. But as your tutor, I will not be your teacher I will be your coach. I will try to identify your weaknesses and your strong points and try to determine exactly where you stand with the rest of the class. I will give you the tools that I have learned through teaching and tutoring (over a period of 15 years) that will make you earn a satisfying grade, or past whatever test or exam you have to take. Beside being a teacher, I am a chemist, and an engineer.

Each course requires a mind set and a series of things that you must do to get a decent grade. I know them; especially for the courses that I tutoring. I can help you better prepare for test, midterms, and finals. The questions that you might be afraid to ask in class, make sure you ask them to me--we will find the answers together. I will teach you how to make a sincere impression on the teacher so that he or she can give you the maximum amount of quality attention that you deserve and how to get a good grade through your own efforts and my coaching.

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 am of the inclination that players who overcome great challenges make good coaches. To me tutoring is coaching. Organic Chemistry was a challenge to overcome and I loved it--both I and II. I had to, my major was chemistry. From nonmenclature to synthesis, I develop techniques to know what theacher is talking about and what the book is saying.
I can help you develop those same techniques or your very own to appreciate Oganic Chemistry let alone get a decent grade. I can help you not be intimidated by the thickness of the book and the amount knowledge you would have to retain and help you use your intelligence to access the information that you need if you pay attention in class.
It is okay not to understand something in Organic Chemistry, or any subject in college, but the challenge is for you to put yourself up to it and discover why. With this approach you learn the material twice--but two different ways, and it stays with you.
I hope I have been of help to you in the above paragraphs, but as a (practicing) chemist, Chemical Engineer, Evironmental Engineer, and a teacher, I will tell you Organic Chemistry is a challenge, but it is not an obstacle. Take challenge, and contact me.
