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.

I have a Ph.D. in organic chemistry. I have taught this course in a college level for 4 years, and have tutored it for 8.

I am able to draw structures, describe bonding, list reagents for reactions, and relate structure to pKa and boiling points.
