Professional Organic Chemistry Expert

Steve is the real deal! He is able to tailor a lesson based on what you need help with on the spot (complete with examples - it's amazing) or help you with any problems you're having trouble with. Steve has an expert level of knowledge, yet no question is too small. He starts off with the underlying concept, and then builds once you understand each level. Throughout the session, he checks in and makes sure you're one the same page. In addition, Steve is very professional. He promptly responds to messages and effectively communicates. I have a test in 3 days, and he was able to accommodate another session with short notice. I am a returning student after 8 years of running a business that stretched over the Southeast, and truly appreciate his professionalism. Before the tutoring session, I was convinced I would never understand Organic Chemistry, but now I actually understand different types of reactions. 10 stars!

Great session and instructor!!!

Steve was awesome with how all material was presented, keeping it understandable, manageable and interesting while at the same time helping you truly grasp the information. He is a motivating, down to earth and compassionate teacher who helps turn the frustration of chemistry into love of chemistry! Great session and instructor!!!

Amy, 2 lessons with Steve

Very patient and knowledgeable

Today was my fist session with Steve he really knows his stuff. He breaks it all down step by step so you can understand. He is very, very patient and doesn't make you feel dumb when you don't know something, instead he takes the time to explain step by step why it is what it is. I left more positive about Chemistry than I came. I am actually looking forward to our next session. Thanks Steven for being you, I'm glad I found you!!

Excellent!! Making Chemistry Accessible

I truly appreciated Steve's help on short notice and wish I would have consulted him earlier. He explained organic chemical reactions in a very understanding way, a method that allowed me to apply this knowledge to other problems. He masterfully explained chemical problems by comparing them to real life, which helped to make the material less abstract. Truth is, Steve was able to explain weeks of lectures within 2 hours. This in itself is very impressive. Thanks again!

Ryan, 1 lesson with Steve

Great and efficient tutor

Steve reviewed almost 3 whole chemistry units in one session. He really knows what he is doing and is very efficient and patient.

Brenda, 7 lessons with Steve

Very helpful! Ensures good foundation.

Steve reviewed some basics to ensure I had a good foundation before moving forward! He was very knowledgeable and showed WHY things work the way they do, rather than saying that's the way it is. I will definitely be receiving help from Steve again!

Tori, 2 lessons with Steve

Great tutor

I felt lost in my course until I worked with Mr. Steve N. He offered me a greater perspective on the course material by relating it to daily life and by using realistic analogies as examples. I am going to enjoy working with him. If you are interested in working with him, you will be getting a great tutor.

Jay, 8 lessons with Steve

Amazing Tutor

Steve is very patient and it is very important to you that you understand the material. It takes his time and walks you through things and does not move in until you understand it. He is amazing.

Johnell, 7 lessons with Steve

Exceptional Teacher

Steve clearly demonstrates an innate ability to impart his knowledge by being the kind of teacher that truly cares that his student understands the concepts thoroughly. He involves the student in the learning process by encouraging questions. A wonderful teacher who truly demonstrates his love of the art of teaching and complete mastery and knowledge of Chemistry. Thanks a lot for being such a wonderful teacher.
