About Matthew


Bio

I have an M.S. in organic chemistry and have been tutoring chemistry full time for the past five years. I'm an expert at breaking chemistry down into fundamental principles so that students can spend less time memorizing, and more time understanding. I've accumulated various tips and tricks over the years that make tricky subjects like resonance, stereochemistry, mechanisms, synthesis and spectroscopy more manageable.

I have spent many years studying both content and pedagogy in chemistry,...

I have an M.S. in organic chemistry and have been tutoring chemistry full time for the past five years. I'm an expert at breaking chemistry down into fundamental principles so that students can spend less time memorizing, and more time understanding. I've accumulated various tips and tricks over the years that make tricky subjects like resonance, stereochemistry, mechanisms, synthesis and spectroscopy more manageable.

I have spent many years studying both content and pedagogy in chemistry, especially organic chem. More importantly, I am familiar with the scope and common curriculum of sophomore organic chemistry classes at every level. I have worked with students using every major textbook, and I will make every effort to optimize our time together to meet the needs of your specific class and learning style.

Organic Chemistry

I have an M.S. in organic chemistry, and I specialize in helping people build the strong foundation they will need to succeed in this class. It's never too late though; I've gone back to square one and helped people improve their grades even half way through their second semester. I have spent many years studying both content and pedagogy in organic chemistry. More importantly, I am familiar with the curriculum of sophomore organic chemistry classes at every level. I have worked with students using every major textbook, and I will make every effort to optimize our time together to meet the needs of your specific class and learning style.
