Bio

I am an experienced organic chemist with a PhD. I love teaching organic chemistry! Right now, I am tutoring a pharmacy student Org. chem I. I have been making my living by doing research in Organic chemistry! I believe I can make you understand organic chemistry by teaching from valency of C to hybridization and reaction mechanisms and so on and so forth!

I am an experienced organic chemist with a PhD. I love teaching organic chemistry! Right now, I am tutoring a pharmacy student Org. chem I. I have been making my living by doing research in Organic chemistry! I believe I can make you understand organic chemistry by teaching from valency of C to hybridization and reaction mechanisms and so on and so forth!

Stereochemistry and conformation analysis is another area beginner students have problem in understanding. The problem comes in this area because you are representing a 3D structure (tetrahedral carbon) in 2D (in a paper). Unless you learn how to "see" and convert a three dimensional molecule to a 2D representation correctly you can not do well in this area. An expert should educate you how to look at a 3D Carbon and convert a wedge-dash representation to newman projection to fishcher projection and how to assign "RS" notation to each stereogenic center of the organic molecule. Understanding stereochemistry of organic molecules is very important for understanding structure of "biomolecules" in your future.

I obtained my PhD in Synthetic Organic Chemistry. Synthesized mono and sesquiterpenes. I have been in the synthetic organic chemistry field for the past two decades. My understanding of mechanisms and structure elucidation and developing new synthetic methods and multi-step synthesis is outstanding.
