Bio

I am writing to potential students and parents as a former student who 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...

I am writing to potential students and parents as a former student who 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. I want to help students see organic chemistry as a fun course. My teaching method is one of a demonstrator: I do problems over and over and over again. Take it from me, I did it!!

Fantastic!

Dr. L. broke things down in a way that was very easy to understand and presented the same material my professor did in a manner that made sense. My only regret is that I didn’t find Dr. L. a year ago when I started my ochem journey.

Fantastic Tutor

Dr. Dewayne is a great tutor and an extremely nice man. He meets students where they are and is willing to help in any way possible. I had an hour and a half session with him, and it was extremely helpful. He worked through practice problems with me, answered questions about material we had already covered in class, and went through the upcoming material with me to prepare me for class. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs help in organic chemistry, in any capacity. If you have no idea what is going on he will lecture to you, if you need help with practice problems he will help you, or if you are looking to get ahead in class, he can help with that too. It is hard to find a good organic chemistry tutor but Dr. Dewayne is fantastic.

Awesome Tutor

I took Organic Chemistry II in a four week mini session this past July. After the second week I stood at an F average. After just one session with Dewayne I made a 90% on the next quiz/test. Dewayne does an excellent job of breaking Organic Chemistry down to a understandable level. In just two weeks Dewayne taught me the basics along with everything I needed to know to be caught up. Thanks to Dewayne I successfully passed the class. Something I thought wouldn't be possible. I strongly would recommend Dewayne.
