About Jeremy

I just earned my degree in chemistry with a minor in biology and would like to help others with their studies in science.

I chose to major in chemistry because it answered the "how and why" aspects of biological functions as well as applying to physics. Science is an area that I love because it ranges from the theoretical to the practical aspects of the universe and can be seen in everyday life.

I enjoy tutoring because I like helping people learn and understand chemistry, plus I know from personal experience the Adrenalin rush you get when you have that "ah-ha! moment." Often science is taught in an abstract manner that does not show how it applies to the world around us. Tutoring students helps me stay on top of my academics and be challenged by new questions as well.

Every student has a different way of learning and grasping concepts. An important part of learning is understanding how you learn and applying that to your academics. I found that learning chemistry parallels math in the respect that there are two main steps to it. First understand what is happening and why. Second apply that foundation of how and why to various scenarios. Practice and push your limits in order to reinforce what you know and test your knowledge.

While pursuing my bachelor's degree in chemistry I performed undergraduate research in biochemistry and organic chemistry. My classmates and I were often working on lab reports while other students were either partying or sleeping. Self discipline is very important and I have hundreds of hours of studying behind me. My calculus professor one said "In order for a basketball player to become good, they must practice for 1,000 hours. Math is no different." The same can be said for chemistry. While chemistry is my main focus I can also help if you have questions with math and history. If you are overwhelmed by your studies I also have a plethora of science jokes to share.

I have a flexible schedule as of right now. Monday through Thursday I am generally available all day. My weekend schedule from Friday evening through Sunday is always changing but I can work around that. If you have questions about an area of study and when I can meet contact me. I look forward to hearing from you and sharing my passion for science.
