About Augusto

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
