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.

Organic Chemistry

My Ph. D. is in organometallics specifically on mechanisms of catalysis. Basically my work consisted of figuring out mechanisms of reactions to understand why they happened and if we could improve the catalyst for it.

Very Knowledgeable

Dale has a wonderful way of explaining things, as many times as you ask, while being patient and kind. He makes things relatable and really makes sure you understand the concepts.

Melissa, 9 lessons with Dale

Tutoring

Dale is very thorough and can answer any questions I throw at him. My test grades have improved a lot since tutoring. Highly recommend!

Sally, 10 lessons with Dale

Very Knowledgeable Tutor & Patient

Dale tutored me in inorganic chemistry and helped me understand many concepts I had no idea in. He also provided me with some resources (websites, etc.) to help me. Highly recommend!

Emily, 2 lessons with Dale

Dale is good tutor

I like this guy, every time while we are doing the question, he makes it easier to understand. If you got lost or do not get it , he is patience to explain to you again. I requested lesson two to three times a week ,and never disappointed. Highly recommend

Makes Organic Chem fun

Dale makes organic chem fun by using funny analogies that help me remember. He is patient with my questions and has reasonable rates! This is why I continue to use him as a tutor.

Sally, 10 lessons with Dale

Best. Tutor. Ever.

10/10 He makes the work fun and understandable! He has a great sense of humor too, so he makes it seem less daunting.

Melissa, 9 lessons with Dale

Knowledgeable and patient

He taught me organic chemistry, specifically sn1 and sn2 reactions. He explained in a way I understood and was patient with the microphone not working. I would recommend him and his rates are good.

Effective and Cool Chemistry Tutor

My son came out of his room with a big smile and said how cool and helpful Dale's online session was. We will use Dale for more Chemistry sessions this semester and next...

Very Patient x 10^23

Dale helped me understand thermochemistry and Zeff. I have been struggling with Zeff and he helped me understand it in a simpler fashion. Overall how he breaks down the material and uses analogies helped me understand what I had to do for each problem.
