About Mitchell

Looking for chemistry and/or science help? How about a Harvard educated professional organic chemist!

I'm here to tutor students in Chemistry, Biology, and Physics at either the high school or college level. My goal is to help my students have a genuine understanding of the subject, rather than just memorize the facts. I know students want to get as much out of each tutoring session as possible, and to that end I come prepared and am efficient in my teaching. Whether you need help getting though your orgo problem sets or want to ace your AP chem test, I can help!

Some of my experience :

I have a BA degree in chemistry from Harvard and loads of tutoring and teaching experience (TA for freshman chemistry class).

I am currently a scientist creating new materials for a semiconductor company in the greater Chicago area.

I am the co-author on organic chemistry journal publications and co-inventor on patents in materials science and plastic semiconductors.

Hope to hear from you!
