Bio

I have over twenty years of teaching and tutoring general and organic chemistry. I also am online certified and I am currently an MCAT General and Organic Chemistry Instructor for The Princeton Review.
While an "A" student in general chemistry, I actually struggled in organic chemistry! After barely passing organic I with a C. My first test in organic II, I actually made a score of 13/100! That is not a typo! Afterwards, I was very discouraged at the fact that I may not be able to pursue...

I have over twenty years of teaching and tutoring general and organic chemistry. I also am online certified and I am currently an MCAT General and Organic Chemistry Instructor for The Princeton Review.
While an "A" student in general chemistry, I actually struggled in organic chemistry! After barely passing organic I with a C. My first test in organic II, I actually made a score of 13/100! That is not a typo! Afterwards, I was very discouraged at the fact that I may not be able to pursue my career as a chemical engineer because I was not going to be able to pass this class. Then, I called my mom and talked to her, and she basically said that I needed to study organic in a different way. I took the very unusual approach and told my teacher that I was going to teach myself organic chemistry and would not be attending class except for exam day. Much to her chagrin, I purchased a solution manual and began a journey that would forever change my life. When the second exam came around, I entered the classroom with many of the students thinking that I had dropped the class. After 30 minutes, I felt comfortable about the exam but at the same time still unsure. Nevertheless, I turned in the exam. A couple of days later as I was walking down the hall, my teacher motioned to me to come into her office. She said to me, "Whatever you are doing, keep doing it!" I had received a 90/100! The third test and final exam were A's as well.

After doing the impossible, I changed my major from chemical engineering to chemistry so that one day I could obtain my PhD in organic chemistry so that I could teach students the secrets to learning organic chemistry! That is why I love to teach the subject and that is why I love to tutor students. I am not one of the those individuals who act as if those who don't quite understand organic will never get it. I know the struggles and pain associated with learning those organic concepts. Take it from me, I did it!!

worth every penny

If you need help with Organic Chemistry Lab, let me tell you, you need to come see Mr. Dewayne. He’s very knowledgeable. If you go to LSU he’s even better help because he knows the labs and can break them down for you. Honestly, I didn’t think there was any hope for me in the course but now I’m the most knowledgeable student in my lab and helping other students understand concepts. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND MR. DEWAYNE!!!

Patient and Kind

Dewayne was so patient and kind in our session. I learned so much more in our session than I ever had with other tutors. I am taking o chem for my 3rd time and after his help, I made my first A on an exam. I will be continuing and cannot recommend him enough. Thank you!!

Patient and encouraging tutor.

Dewayne is very understanding about where you are in the learning process and patient with you as you navigate tough topics. He takes your feedback after almost every example to ensure that you are grasping the topics properly. Overall, incredibly warm and kind.

Great Organic Tutor

Mr. Dewayne has helped me so much in organic chemistry 2. If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't of been nearly successful as I was in the class. He is very encouraging and breaks down the material in such an easy way to help you understand!

Bree, 15 lessons with Dewayne

Great teacher!

Great at breaking things down and explaining what you need to do to be successful! Would recommend to all students!

Intelligent and insightful tutor

Dr. Logan is a patient tutor who taught me how to look at organic chemistry from a different perspective. He is somebody who takes time to break things down and explain difficult concepts.

Great tutor!

Contacted at the last minute to help my daughter with a test. She said he was a great tutor and explained things very well. Even went over items that the teacher skipped over that were on the test! A+++ Thank you!

Excellent Tutor, Very Patient

Dewayne L. really helped me understand Organic Chemistry and used simplistic terms to explain and break down the topic. I truly look forward to working with Dewayne L. again.
