About Dean

My background includes a distinguished BS in chemistry from the University of Denver, MS and PhD degrees from Cornell University (organic chemistry), where I was a lecture and lab TA and tutor for five years, as well as a Post Doctoral appointment at the University of California, San Diego, also in chemistry...I was recognized with the DuPont Teaching Award while at Cornell. Coupled with over 15 years as a medicinal chemist in the pharmaceutical industry and professional experience and certification in training, development, and instructional design, I'm confident that I can help you feel better, do better, and give organic chemistry a solid run.

I know firsthand how challenging chemistry can seem, especially organic. Fortunately, at every turn there are common pitfalls to be avoided and helpful insights to explain, organize, and practice the material - I find it very satisfying to see students build their knowledge and transform organic's daunting reputation into a position of confidence and mastery. Seeing that "light bulb" come on, and stay on, with apprehension becoming success, is what makes me "tick" as a tutor. While I am new to Wyzant, I've always enjoyed leveraging my experience and knowledge to make students' lives easier and more successful.

I prefer to teach in Cambridge (Central Square), Bedford, Lexington, or online if possible, and will do my best to be a flexible and valuable partner in your success.
