I am an experienced organic chemistry tutor. I am making my living by doing research in organic chemistry. I have been tutoring as a part-time job because I enjoy teaching organic chemistry. My teaching philosophy is, "share whatever you learnt to younger ones, especially tell them the mistakes you made while you were learning organic chemistry so that they would not have to go through what you went through".
I can make you understand organic chemistry and appreciate the beauty of organic and bio-molecules by teaching from valency of C to hybridization and reaction mechanisms. Let me warn you, organic chemistry evaporates easily from your mind just like "ether" unless you think about it all the time. It is not like swimming or driving, which, once you learnt you will never forget it. By the way, I am not a tutor who can make you understand everything in the "last minute". I want to help you building your basic skills before you face the challenges. Unless I know what is your level of understanding and strengths and weaknesses I cant make you excel in Organic chemistry. I believe scoring and being knowledgeable in a subject are two different things. I have seen students who earned a "C" have better scientific understanding and originality than some students who earn an "A" easily. The major problem in our system is that "not enough time" to understand and appreciate the subject as there is lot of pressure. Our teachers hardly ever put themselves in students shoes and see how hard it is. Organic chemistry is different from math and physics and biology. It is not uncommon bright students struggle when it comes to organic chemistry. One can appreciate biology and biochemistry only if he or she sees the organic frame-work of bio-molecules, properly. One on one tutoring makes you understand organic chemistry much better. Start early! Please don't wait till you start struggling.

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.

Very Knowledgeable and patient tutor

He is flexible and customized his teaching style based on my needs. Most importantly he helped me to understand the topics I was struggling on. He is very knowledgeable. I would love to get his help for my future needs as well.

Sudhaker, 1 lesson with Kathiresan

Excellent

Answered every question I had, very knowledgeable! Got back to me ASAP and helped me with every problem I had the same day! Excellent and fairly priced tutor. We studied organic chemistry 2 together and even caught mistakes from my professor!
