About Jason

IMPORTANT UPDATE!! As of January 2014, I am only tutoring online.

For many years, I was passionately involved in research and immersed in the pure joy of scientific discovery. During my post doctoral research, I noticed a substantial shift in my career interest from scientific experimentation to scientific education. I found it exceptionally rewarding to sift through massive amounts of information and then portray the material in a more friendly and digestible manner. My academic career has allowed me to teach chemistry to a wide variety of audiences, from high school students to assistant professors. During my doctoral and post doctoral research, I was fortunate enough to have been around numerous faculty who were passionate about teaching. Witnessing the preparation needed to create a well constructed presentation was informative and fueled my interest in pursuing scientific education. My desire for scientific excellence began early in life by simply experimenting under my parents' kitchen sink in hopes of unearthing some innovative discovery. Today, that same passion has now been directed towards refining my skills as a scientific educator.

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.

Organic Chemistry

I received my BS in chemistry and my MS, Ph.D, and post-doctoral education in organic chemistry. Since 1998, my academic career has allowed me to teach chemistry to a wide variety of audiences, from high school students to assistant professors.

During my tutoring sessions, I have noticed that assessing the student’s preference of learning is of upmost importance. This basic inquiry then allows me to tailor the session to their specific needs. Typically, I make use of everyday objects to help facilitate the student’s comprehension of the course material.
