About Dale


Bio

Hello,

I first started tutoring in undergraduate and I loved it so much that by my senior year the organization I was tutoring for had to specify "not Dale" when asking for people to fill in the remaining slots. I am a huge nerd and may well need some help communicating with you, but I'll take your advice so long as you take mine.

My goal is to help people. I know that seems obvious given the field, but I'm happy to do the work that is needed to help you understand. My satisfaction is in...

Hello,

I first started tutoring in undergraduate and I loved it so much that by my senior year the organization I was tutoring for had to specify "not Dale" when asking for people to fill in the remaining slots. I am a huge nerd and may well need some help communicating with you, but I'll take your advice so long as you take mine.

My goal is to help people. I know that seems obvious given the field, but I'm happy to do the work that is needed to help you understand. My satisfaction is in you understanding or appreciating something you didn't before. I'll do my best to make examples that apply to your interests should you share them with me.

I think the biggest thing to making tutoring successful is making it at least a bit enjoyable for both student and teacher. Most of us hate what we're forced to do after all. Finding a way to make the student engaged is the most critical aspect of tutoring/teaching and I'm willing to work with the student to find that, so long as the student is willing to work with me.

I've taken up to Calculus III in school so I am familiar with calculus in 3-D. My foundation in Calc III is not the strongest so I'm not offering help in anything beyond Calc I. I've tutored people in Algebra before and it was successful so long as they attended. I think the key to teaching math is not giving problems, but helping people to understand how to work problems. I think this approach is applicable beyond just math as well.

I have a Ph. D. in Chemistry. That sounds intimidating so let's ignore that. I have tutored Chemistry for four years: three in undergrad and one in grad school. I had regular attendees for my undergrad sessions for multiple years. They may not have always needed my help, but the regulars came in just in case because they trusted me to make any issues clear. That is one of my proudest achievements. Even more so than the Ph. D. I take pride in helping people.

Look, I remember College, and honestly the circumstances right now aren't too different. I don't wan

Chemistry

I have a Ph. D. in Inorganic Chemistry with a specialization in Computational Mechanisms of Transition Metal Complexes. In normal people speak that means I know a lot about transition metals and how they react. My tutoring experience covers the breadth of General Chem and Organic Chem as Physical Chemistry and Inorganic Chemistry were majors only classes. I'm also very familiar with NMR and other spectroscopy having TA'd a Structure and Spectroscopy class for two years.

Tutoring

Solid teaching and quick to be of service. Will be coming back next week. Quality of video was good no issues with functionality of website which I can personally appreciate.

Preston, 2 lessons with Dale

Excellent NMR Help

Dale is a fantastic tutor. He guided me through the analysis of several NMR unknowns and taught me strategies to re-evaluate my assumptions. Dale was also encouraging and approachable and willing to help me last-minute even though he'd just finished an extremely long session with another student. Overall, I highly recommend his teaching.

Kajsa, 3 lessons with Dale

Great Teacher, knowledgeable and patient!

Dale helped my son with Chemisty. He helped him understand concepts that he did not understand in class. Highly recommended!!

Kerry, 3 lessons with Dale

Amazing and helpful

I have been needing some help catching up with my Chemistry material and Dale has guided me through many concepts, formulas, practice, and homework problems until I understand them. Super patient and good at covering a lot of material in the short amount of time that we have.

Ximena, 2 lessons with Dale

Great knowledge of chemistry

Dale did a great job helping my son complete his chemistry and showing step by step how to do the math he made it easy to understand better than his current teacher! Will definitely use again!

Dusty, 1 lesson with Dale

Awesome guy, better tutor

Dale is a great tutor as he is very patient and makes learning the material interesting and fun. He comes up with great phrases that help you remember things and is very flexible with scheduling. 10/10 would recommend!

Quinn, 3 lessons with Dale

Excellent experience

Dale was able to calmly review Honors Chemistry with my daughter, who's been remote learning for the past 14 months. The pandemic has really disrupted her normal learning process and Dale was able to give her the insight she needed. Highly recommend

Patty, 4 lessons with Dale

Dale is awesome!

I was in a rush to finish a few assignments and he had no problem jumping in and sitting with me to get them done. We got alot done in the past 2 sessions and im looking forward to working with him again! Really cool guy :)

Raymonda, 3 lessons with Dale

Very understanding tutor

Taught and guided me through Tanabe Sugano diagrams, and multiple other concepts while being understanding of my needs and level of understanding.
