Best OChem I’ve Ever Had.

Darrell sets the bar for OChem tutors. I mean his ability to explain, listen and dumb things down for students like myself is off the charts. Highly, highly recommended.

He knows his stuff!

Darrel was readily available and an amazing forgo tutor. I needed last-minute help on a question I was dead stuck on the day it was due, and he was able to help in minutes. He is very knowledgeable and explains concepts STRAIGHTFORWARDLY which I greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!

Kayley, 1 lesson with Darrell

Highly knowledge and patient

Darrell doesn't spoon-feed you answers he leads you through problems and some aspect of how to figure out the puzzle as YOU come to the answer. For a class like organic chemistry, this is an excellent teaching style that you will need.

You hit the nail on the head, Chris. In organic chemistry, it's all about the understanding...not memorization. Thank you! It's a pleasure to work with you!
