I have a Ph.D. degree in Biochemistry and have many years of experience teaching at the University undergraduate and graduate levels. I have tutored many high school and college students in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Algebra and Prealgebra, and have had excellent results.

My approach to tutoring is a very simple one: teach the basics in a way the student "relates" and understands. I do not believe in rote memorization. Chemistry and Math are disciplines that build from the basics. I do NOT do homework for students, but will assist them as they work through the assignments on their own.

Outside of the classroom, I am an avid sports fan enjoying golf, football, basketball, etc.

Subjects

Elementary Education

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

Elementary Math is probably the most critical subject in mathematics because it sets the stage for all other math courses. My approach is to make sure the student truly grasps the concepts involved, and does not just "memorize" the processes or procedures that are used to achieve the correct answers to problems.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

My approach to teaching algebra is similar to that used in teaching other subjects. I try to impart an understanding of the fundamentals, with logic and reasoning, and shy away from memorization, unless necessary.
Biology,

Biology

I have a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and have taught Chemistry, Biology and Pharmacology at the University level. I have done independent research in Biochemistry and Biology, and have a good knowledge of Biology and how it relates to the cell, and the organism.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

High school and college level general chemistry (inorganic), introductory chemistry, and analytical chemistry are some of the areas in which I can help. I approach tutoring Chemistry from a point of view where I explain concepts in an easy to understand manner, and supplement what the text book has to offer. I have had great success with all of the students I have assisted.
Prealgebra

Prealgebra

My approach to pre-algebra is slightly different from what the text books cover. This gives the student a "second" way of working out the problems and an alternate way of trying to understand the basis of the various operations.

Nursing

Nursing

Nursing involves many disciplines, including math, chemistry, pharmacy, pharmacology, anatomy, and many others. I try to integrate all of the life sciences and math into my approach in assisting nursing students so that they might gain a full and complete understanding of the concepts being studied. I have a background in Pharmacy, Pharmacology, Biochemistry and Life Sciences, which makes me uniquely qualified to integrate all of these subjects into the field of Nursing.

Pharmacology

I have a Ph.D. in Biochemistry/Neuroscience, and did 4 years of postdoctoral study in Neuropharmacology. I also taught medical pharmacology at a State Medical School for more than 25 years. Finally, I have conducted laboratory research in pharmacology for more than 2 decades, and have published in peer reviewed pharmacology journals.

Flexible and incredibly knowledgeable tutor

My 10th grade needed help with chemistry and we didn’t give J.R. much notice and he made it happen. My daughter was in tears that day over chemistry but after meeting with J.R. her knowledge, confidence and understanding was unbelievable. We are so grateful and highly recommend him. We will be using his services again in the future.

Tutor responded:

Thank you for your positive comment. I always try my best to relate to each student and their specific needs. I’m very gratified to hear that I had some small, positive influence on your daughter's confidence in dealing with her chemistry studies. Good luck to her going forward, and I’d be happy to work with her in the future should the need arise.

Knowledgeable, patient and good teacher

My son is taking an summer chemistry class through IUPUI that moves through the material very quickly. J.R.S. Has been able to take a large amount of material and break it down into information my son can understand and grasp. J.R.S. has a mastery of the material, and knows tricks and tips to help my son learn it effectively and he paced the session very well. My son really enjoyed working with him and looks forward to more sessions.

Great tutor

My daughter is learning a lot with J.R and says she enjoys her tutoring sessions! She says he explains things better than her chemistry teacher. Looking forward to future sessions.

Punkii, 11 lessons with J.R.

Great tutor

J.R. is very knowledgeable and patient. He prepares well before the lesson and explains clearly. My daughter thinks he is the best!

Emily, 1 lesson with J.R.
Tutor responded:

Thank you Emily. Working with your daughter has been a delight, and I look forward to assisting her in the future, should the need arise.

Excellent and responsive Chemistry tutor

J.R. contacted us and arranged an appointment quickly. He seems flexible in his schedule. While my daughter didn't need as much help as we thought, she felt that J.R. had a very good way of explaining Chemistry concepts. He spent the time going over the practice problems she was given. We would definitely contact him again for assistance!

Excellent experience

My son had a review lesson with JR today. We scheduled the lesson very efficiently using the website, with relatively short notice and over the weekend. The teacher was prompt and effective. My son he was concerned that he did not understand the concepts in class (electro thermo chemistry) and felt very reassured after the lesson. JR reviewed the concepts and solved problems with him; all his questions were answered. We plan to take additional lessons prior to his AP exam. Excellent teacher.

Tutor responded:

Thank you for your kind words. It was indeed a pleasure working with your son, and I look forward to working with him again in the future. I'm sure he'll do very well in his Chemistry class.

Very knowledgeable

I highly recommend J.R. as an outstanding chemistry tutor. I have met with him three times to work through practice tests before the three chemistry exams this semester. He explains concepts very well and he showed me multiple ways to solve several of the problems. Because of J.R.'s help, I have scored well on the exams. If you want to improve your chemistry grade, call J.R.!

Tutor responded:

Thank you John. It's been a pleasure working with you. Keep up the good work.

Highly Recommend

I'll never forget my daughter's sense of relief after just one tutoring sessions with J.R. She stated, "NOW I get it!" 'Nuff said!

Julia, 2 lessons with J.R.

Very patient and great at explaining challenging material

My teacher at school even noticed a difference once I got a tutor. He is willing to work with you until you truly understand the material. He allows you to work out the problem on your own, so you can know how to do it when you are taking the test. Great tutor overall!
