About Simon

My love towards chemistry started from 11th grade, from when I started spending significant amounts of my time building foundations in chemistry. This lead me to advance to the best university in South Korea, Seoul National University, where I received a BS degree in chemistry. I extended my knowledge in chemistry by joining one of the best polymer programs in USA, the University of Akron, with polymer chemistry major, where I received my PhD degree.

I am a patient tutor, and would like help you in building up foundations and basics in chemistry. I believe this will help students in the future in learning great deal of chemistry in their career, as well as getting good grades for now.

My special areas are general chemistry or AP chemistry for high school students. Please note that my availability is limited to evening hours only during weekdays as I am a full-time working professional in chemical field.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I am a patient teacher willing to work with students in building up foundations in mathematics. Math was my favorite subject until the first year in the best University in Korea, Seoul National University. I completed my math study up to Calculus with A-grades throughout my school years. I recently sharpened my knowledge in mathematics by reviewing various areas by myself, including Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry.

My success in mathematics relied deeply on hard training in basics and foundations. I would like to help HS students with deductive thinking processes and good study habits which are critical in future success in high level math in college.

Chemistry

I received my BS degree in chemistry from the best university in Korea, Seoul National University. I expanded my knowledge in chemistry by majoring polymer synthesis during my PhD studies at the Univ of Akron, one of the best polymer programs in States.

I am in my third year in tutoring, and hope to have more opportunities to work with HS students taking AP chemistry.

Very Knowledgeable and Organized

Mr. Simon is very kind and knowledgeable in his field. I had a very positive experience with him and his teaching techniques. I learned more in just the short time he spend with me than I had sitting in a Chemistry class all week. Thanks, Mr. Simon.
