About John


Bio

My name is John and I grew up in Fresno, California. I attended Edison High School where I won the Science Student of the Year award and received a 5 on my AP Chemistry, Biology and Physics tests. I majored in chemistry at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland and after that I worked for two years at a small pharmaceutical company in San Francisco making cardiovascular drugs. I went to graduate school in synthetic organic chemistry at Columbia University in New York City...

My name is John and I grew up in Fresno, California. I attended Edison High School where I won the Science Student of the Year award and received a 5 on my AP Chemistry, Biology and Physics tests. I majored in chemistry at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland and after that I worked for two years at a small pharmaceutical company in San Francisco making cardiovascular drugs. I went to graduate school in synthetic organic chemistry at Columbia University in New York City where I taught, tutored and conducted research for noted Professor Samuel Danishefsky. After graduate school I worked at Merck Research Laboratory in Boston, Massachusetts for almost five years in areas of Alzheimer's and inflammatory drug discovery.
I have been teaching OChem I & II at a local University for the past four years to outstanding student reviews. I love the subject and I love teaching so it's a perfect match!
I love the outdoors, California (especially the Bay Area), music and long distance running. I love reading and learning more about the natural world around me. Most of all I love teaching, tutoring and mentoring, which I do a lot of in other capacities in my social work.

I LOVE organic chemistry. I have tutored many students, lectured and taught it at every level from high school, undergraduate and graduate levels. I have studied, taught or worked in chemistry nearly every day for half of my life. I love being able to convey the basic principles that make up the foundation of chemistry which allow for a much easier understanding and takes away the need for relentless memorization and flash cards.

Chemistry and organic chemistry in particular are incredibly wonderful subjects that are too often taught in a dry and brutal fashion. I look forward to hearing from you and working together to help learn all about this wonderful science!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

John helped me to understand the concept of structure and bonding in organic molecules. John is quick to reply to messages and he is provides the notes from the tutoring session.

Wonderful

John was on time and he knew his subject. He took his time explaining it to my son. John is a great tutor.
