UNIVERSITY OF PUERTO RICO (PhD)
I have taught chemistry courses at the undergraduate and graduate level for an Atlanta-based University. During this time, I have seen how my teaching style and methods have increased a student’s confidence, problem solving skills and interest in chemistry. Many of my students have been inspired to become teaching professionals in the sciences.
As a tutor, I will provide an environment where hard work and effort is rewarded with encouragement and praise. This helps build confidence and a clear path to success. Goals will be adjusted as the student progresses and student will be challenged to do more. I derive a great deal of satisfaction knowing that I helped a student achieve their academic goals.
I have a PhD in Chemistry with a concentration in Organic Chemistry. I have 35 years of experience in Organic Chemistry, Polymer Chemistry and in Fiber Science. I have taught at the undergraduate and graduate level for 10 years. I was considered as one of the best instructors during my tenure at the University. Students from other institutions would sign up to take my classes. In addition to my academic experience, I have worked in industry and bring a practical approach towards learning abstract concepts.
In the first meeting with the student an initial assessment of the student’s goals, skills and knowledge in the subject matter is determined. A work plan is proposed to address areas that need immediate attention. Subsequent tutoring meetings will focus on implementation of the work plan. The student
I have three fundamental policies:
•Be on time for your sessions
•Give me 24 hour notice via email if you can’t make your session
•Contact me via email for questions or to resolve issues I have taught chemistry courses at the undergraduate and graduate level for an Atlanta-based University.

Dr. Augie was an incredible tutor to teach the reasoning behind different organic chemistry principles in a short amount of time prior to my exam!
Augusto is a great teacher. He helped me better understand concepts that were once confusing.
He was not boring & was very helpful.
Dr. Augie, has been tutoring my daughter and she responded to him very well. He is very patient, thorough and his passion for student's success is evident. I'm glad we found him.
I learned how to do hydration, halogenation reactions of Alkynes and Hydrohalogenation of alkenes. He was able to teach me easy was to remember how to complete the reactions by remembering some of the basic rules need to understand the process
He is very patient, even with someone that is struggling to understand, like I am. After working with him over the last week, I went into my Orgo 2 exam today with more confidence that I have before. Would highly recommend!
I have met with Dr. Augie several times regarding Organic Chemistry 1, and each and every time he has made the topics easier to understand! He provides you with the tools to not only understand the material but to boost your confidence about it. Being that this is my second time taking the class, I needed someone who was patient and skilled to help me pass. Although I am not finished with the class, I have taken 3 exams so far and have a B average, which is something I never thought I'd achieve! Thank you so much Dr. Augie and I look forward to our next session!
Augusto teaches how to have confidence in your ability. He shows enthusiasm and patience while you learn at your own pace. Augusto has taught to apply yourself to become self sufficient
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.
