About Deon

Hello, I'm Deon, and I'm a recent Iowa State University graduate. I graduated with my BS in Chemical Engineering Summa Cum Laude (3.97 GPA) in the top 2% of the College of Engineering. I also obtained a Biomedical Engineering minor. I'm currently weighing my options for graduate school. My educational background enables me to assist you in the basic sciences and math courses (mathematics, chemistry, physics,biology/physiology) along with the more specific chemical engineering courses (thermodynamics, kinetics, reaction engineering, transport phenomena, process control). I have also taken the GRE recently, so I can also assist you in your test prep if you're considering graduate study.

Although I was never an SI instructor, I have helped numerous peers with their HW and test preparation throughout my time as an undergraduate. Being the "nerd" of my class, I was constantly approached for help on homework and invited to test study sessions. My experiences in informal one-on-one and small group study sessions will help me foster a stress-free, relaxing learning environment.

For anyone seeking help in algebra, my course work constantly utilized algebraic techniques. The fundamentals of algebra are necessary to solve a wide array of engineering problems, so I've received a lot of practice in writing, rearranging, and solving equations for, "x". Let me teach you some helpful hints and shortcuts I've learned along the way.

For anyone seeking help in chemistry, I've completed my fair share of chemistry courses as a chemical engineering student. I will teach you how to properly use the factor label method, a foolproof technique that I strongly believe isn't taught properly in high school or college. If you aren't confident in your abilities to make unit conversions and/or get tripped up with stoichiometry in your General Chemistry course, please let me assist you. The factor label method can be applied to the majority of the course content in General Chemistry.

I want to help you succeed. Let's discuss your academic goals and devise a plan so you can meet them! My schedule is completely flexible; I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

ACT Science

Working in both the chemical industry and an academic research lab, I have experience reading and interpreting scientific articles. I'll help you analyze and "break down" the ACT Science reading prompts along with teaching you how to properly implement process of elimination techniques to more efficiently answer questions on test day.

Biology

With a biomedical engineering minor, I have successfully completed and got A's in biology courses. I also have research experience in a molecular biology lab, doing genetic work on nonconventional yeast strains for biochemical engineering applications.

Chemical Engineering

I graduated with my BS in Chemical Engineering from Iowa State University Summa Cum Laude (3.97 GPA) in the top 2% of the College of Engineering. Going through the rigors of such a demanding curriculum, I developed strategies on how to efficiently problem solve. This not only saves time when completing homework assignments, but will also help prospective students succeed on test day when you encounter unfamiliar questions. By focusing on understanding the core concepts instead of brute force memorizing equations, I will undoubtedly help people conquer their chemical engineering courses!

Chemistry

I will teach you how to properly use the factor label method, a foolproof technique that I strongly believe isn't taught properly in high school or college.
