I am a very experienced Chemist having worked for over 30 years in research, industry and Government regulatory agencies. Chemistry is a science and in science, the key to understanding is getting to learn certain basic principles governing that branch of science.
Memory, although very important, is not enough on its own. These basic principles are not uniform for all chemists but will be unique to individual teachers. Two equally qualified Chemists may be very different when rated as chemistry teachers on a scale of 1-5, with one scoring a 2 while the other scores a 5. The students will very easily tell the difference! I am a very experienced Chemist having worked for over 30 years in research, industry and Government regulatory agencies.

He explained things in ways that was easier to understand. He emphasizes that you must understand the basic concept before moving further into the material
Jim is a great tutor. He is willing to come at a last minute notice and he cares about the success of the students. I highly recommend him.
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.
I am a Bible scholar well versed in Biblical Theology, Systematic Theology, Hermeneutics, Homiletics, Apologetics and the Christian worldview. I am a Bible Teacher and a Church Elder at my church.
I am a well rounded Chemist with excellent knowledge of all the three branches of chemistry, i.e. Organic, Inorganic and Physical chemistry. My major project in organic chemistry was tri-peptide synthesis with the purpose of ensuring a specific amino acid sequence. The protection and de-protection of the active sites had to ensure that the right amino acid was on the acid end and the same case applying to the middle amino acid and the one on the amine end of the tri-peptide. I also have expertise in reaction mechanisms, stereochemistry, aromatics and hetero-chemistry.
