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.

Chemistry

I have a Bachelors and Masters degree in Chemistry, so I have a broad understanding of the subject from the basic to the complex. I have tutored at the undergraduate and high school levels, and worked as a teaching assistant for General and Organic Chemistry as well.

Since chemistry is a subject that builds on itself over time, understanding of the fundamentals is crucial to success in the subject. When tutoring, I use worked examples and problems to teach concepts since this helps reinforce the basics.

Organic Chemistry

I have earned a B.A. ('92 Goshen College) and an M.S ('95 WKU, 2002 Loyola U Chicago) in chemistry. My research for my first masters degree was in Organometallic chemistry. I have taken graduate level classes in Organic chemistry, Spectroscopy, and reaction mechanisms. I also tutored Undergraduate Organic chemistry students while in grad school serving as a teaching assistant.
