About Patrick


Bio

I love tutoring students in organic chemistry. I believe I'm one of the best tutors you can get and I offer a lot of value for my services: I often help students that other tutors have been unable to reach. If you feel desperate, contact me.

I emphasize learning how to think and using basic chemical concepts to solve a problem. I focus on mechanisms to teach reactions and I generally shy away from memorization. I enjoy helping students learn the art of synthesis. It is a lot like a...

I love tutoring students in organic chemistry. I believe I'm one of the best tutors you can get and I offer a lot of value for my services: I often help students that other tutors have been unable to reach. If you feel desperate, contact me.

I emphasize learning how to think and using basic chemical concepts to solve a problem. I focus on mechanisms to teach reactions and I generally shy away from memorization. I enjoy helping students learn the art of synthesis. It is a lot like a sophisticated game of tinker toys. If you approach it like that, it can be enjoyable.

While I am mainly focused on students in undergraduate school, I am glad to help students in advanced or graduate level courses. I also help students with the organic chemistry portion of the MCAT.

Chemistry

Chemistry

I have a PhD in Chemistry and have spent thousands of hours helping students in general chemistry and organic chemistry. I can help with basic knowledge from basic theory (bonding, reactions, stoichiometry) to more advanced subjects such as thermochemistry, reaction rates, acidity, redox reactions, electrochemistry, and the basics of organic chemistry.

helped me understand the problems.

After my first midterm I didn’t know what else I could do to improve my grade. After working with Patrick I feel so much more confident for my second test!

Awesome Teacher

Patrick makes learning chemistry easy to understand and he has answers to all my questions. I feel that I am learning more about the key concepts that I need to understand.

Amazing tutor! Very helpful!

Patrick is an extremely patient tutor and is willing to help you succeed. Will break things down very well and make sure you understand difficult to understand concepts. Will simplify complex things to allow you to make sense of them. He’s an amazing tutor! I very much recommend him! He also has a few tricks to help make things less difficult.

Insightful, patient, eager to help me learn and understand

He is very knowledgeable and good at helping me comprehend the material. I had been pretty discouraged so this is really exciting that he can help me unlock some of 'mysteries' of organic chemistry. I would highly recommend him as a tutor.

Kind and empathetic expert in organic chemistry

Dr. L. is an amazing organic chemistry tutor. He teaches me in a way that is fun and engaging. He is able to help you really understand the content and is very enouraging every step of the way. I recommend him. 5 stars.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

The subject of Organic Chemistry can definitely be overwhelming and a challenge for most if not all students. It took me a while to realize that it takes a whole new set of active learning/thinking and study habits that stray away from memorization. Having a tutor like Patrick Lowder, was honestly the best decision I could've made for myself because he is THE BEST person to help you with those skills and to help you succeed in the subject of Organic Chemistry. He will help you to form the needed connections between the material you’re reading/ learning and to actively apply it to the common problems given on quizzes and exams. He will also definitely make the subject a lot less daunting and he will simplify the material in ways that are understandable without skipping any of the necessary information. I’ll be completely honest, I was able to learn a lot more information from him in one hour than I did throughout the semester and my only regret is to not having him as my tutor sooner as my grade went from an F to a B.

Very Knowledgeable

He helped me grasp the basics and he was very patient with me. We were able to make a plan to make sure that I learn what I need to in time for my test. He was able to quickly answer my questions while making sure that I was fully able to understand the material. Definitely continuing to study with him!

Excellent organic chemistry tutor

My daughter was struggling with organic chemistry, is when I contacted Mr Patrick to help my daughter. Just within few sessions with him, my daughter not just showed significant improvement but started developing passion for Orgo . The best part of his tutoring is that On top of just tutoring, he also provides a study plan, strategies to tackle the class, some challenging questions as homework , I am glad that I was able to get him to tutor/ mentor my daughter. I strongly recommend Mr Patrick if you need help with organic chemistry .

Responsive & Skilled Organic Chemistry Tutor!

Finding Patrick was an answer to prayers! While my college-aged son was attempting to learn organic chemistry from home during covid, Patrick explained difficult concepts so clearly that my son completely understood the theory behind each problem. His grade increased significantly with Patrick's help! He is quick to respond and makes himself widely available for tutoring. If you'd like a tutor with an energetic personality, superior intellect, and the ability to teach, then contact Patrick!
