About Jim


Bio

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...

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!

Organic Chemistry,

Organic Chemistry

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.

Great!

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
