About Patrick

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.

MCAT

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 have a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from Indiana University Bloomington in 1991. I worked at DuPont, Rhone-Poulenc Agrochemie as a research chemist. I have practiced chemical patent law for 20 years and work with research chemists all the time to patent their inventions. I have published a number of papers and have plenty of patents to my name.

Fantastic Tutor

I was weary of the online platform but tried it anyways because Wyzant seemed
