I have a Ph.D in Organic and Organometallic chemistry and I have taught large lecture classes in a university for the past 15 years. I have taught both general and organic chemistry courses. My teaching method involves guiding students to understand basic principles behind complex concepts. During my university teaching tenure, students have started to appreciate and begin to love organic chemistry which is one of the most challenging college chemistry courses. Similarly for general chemistry, I primarily focus on more problem solving which help students to understand the methodology in solving problems and also understand and connect different chemistry concepts. Most of the students having difficulty with chemistry is not actually chemistry, it is the math involved in chemistry calculations. So, as long as the students can do simple Algebra and understand mathematical operations, anyone can appreciate the world of chemistry.

Even though my university classes were nearly 400, I maintained regular office hours and review sessions for students to get more one-on-one support with their learning. I have enjoyed those small group or individual teaching moments as I could understand each of my students struggle and help with their progress. Each individual has different learning style. Sometimes making flashcards would work for some students but not for everyone. Working on the end of chapter problems, understanding the basic principles of chemistry, of course sometimes memorizing chemical formula would greatly help with learning chemistry and ultimately achieve impressive grade.

My biggest strength in tutoring is to understand the weak areas of my students first and start from there. Chemistry concepts are all build on each other. So, if you don't understand the basics, you will not be successful in understanding higher levels of chemistry. For examples, almost all of the organic chemistry concepts are based on general chemistry or AP chemistry concepts. So, it is better to review and refresh your general chemistry

Chemistry

Chemistry

I have taught general chemistry for chemistry, biochemistry, engineering and other life science major students. I teach them the knack of solving chemistry problems. I give them lot of worksheets with problems of varying degrees of difficulty level. Also, I teach them the connection between different concepts so that they can build a strong foundation in chemistry which will help in other higher level chemistry courses or even courses in their own major. Just rote memorization of solving problems is not going to help during exams, that why I emphasize on understanding the concepts.

Organic Chemistry

Organic Chemistry

I have taught Organic Chemistry - I and II for Chemistry, Biochemistry and Chemical Engineer students 6+ years. I teach Stereochemistry with molecular models and I work on worksheets for organic synthesis and reaction mechanisms. I review all of the fundamental general chemistry concepts that are essential for understanding Organic Chemistry. If you want to change your perception about Organic Chemistry, I strongly recommend you to have strong foundation on the general chemistry concepts.

Clear, knowledgeable, and patient teacher!

Mr. Kings is a wonderful tutor. He was patient with my many questions, and was willing and able to walk back to the beginning on fundamental topics, in order to then explain more complicated Organic Chemistry topics. He teaches concepts clearly and concisely, and goes over an example until you understand it. Thank you JV!

Alexis, 1 lesson with Jv

Great tutor, A lot of knowledge

JV has a lot of experirnce in chemistry and science. I took one lesson with him and I was able to understand it much easier. He has a lot of patience and he explains the topics very well.

Andres , 1 lesson with Jv

Great Teacher!

Patiently explained how he got to the answers he got while guiding me toward the solution. Thank you so much for the help!

Great teacher, very knowledgeable !

JV K. was great in helping my son with chemistry honors. He helped him with the questions he was unclear on with much ease.

Claudine, 1 lesson with Jv

Amazing Tutor

JV is an amazing tutor. He helped me learn amazing tricks that I did not learn in class. When it comes to anything Chemistry, JV is your guy. Anyone who has him as a professor is really lucky.

Lauren, 4 lessons with Jv

Awesome

JV taught my son Chemistry for 10th grade. He was not only able to accommodate us at the last minute but also helped my son complete the assignment efficiently. My son understood the material very well.

Mona, 2 lessons with Jv

Super helpful and goes at your pace!

We went over some precipitate reactions, how to form products and use the solubility chart. We also went over molecular equations, complete ionic equations, net ionic equations and some stoichiometry. Looks like I found myself a tutor! Thank goodness!

Samantha, 5 lessons with Jv

great teacher!

I went from being very confused about titrations to having a full understanding after our session. He explained everything very well and took his time to make sure I knew the material

Zachary, 2 lessons with Jv

Knowledge

JV was a great tutor. He asked questions to make sure I was following, and he identified which topics I was struggling with and did a quick review on them before moving on
