Wish I could take more Chemistry Classes

Darrell is a fantastic tutor and a very awesome person. He has helped me through two semesters of chemistry (ochem), and I wish I was required to take more so I could continue learning from him. He is not only knowledgeable and determined, but also patient and caring. He will go above and beyond to find recourses (diagrams, models, etc.) to help you understand a concept. He views difficult questions as a challenge instead of an obstacle. He also taught me/expanded on topics my chemistry courses didn't, and will apply cool real world examples/history about the concepts in the lesson. He makes sure to double check your understanding of questions instead of telling you the answer. He is always happy and willing to explain concepts, regardless of their simplicity. I always looked forward to my lessons with Darrell and I am very grateful for the time we got to work together.

Excellent Perspective

Darrel has a real love of teaching and continuous learning and it shows. He provides thoughtful and specific feedback. I don’t know why I didn’t do this sooner!

Ashley, 5 lessons with Darrell

great tutor

Knew everything I asked about and was able to explain in great detail to make sure I completely understood the topic. Would definitely work witn again!!

Madi, 6 lessons with Darrell

very knowledgable and helped me to really understand

I was able to go through a past test and realize my mistakes and now understand how these topics work. We went through so much in a short time that was incredible. I highly recommend Darrel for Organic Chemistry, I had him for Organic chemistry II and now am getting much better in the class after missing a couple days.

IB Chemistry

I started my IB chemistry year with a shaky foundation. I knew it would be challenging to keep up so I needed to get ahead of the problem. We searched for a tutor which was a good fit for my learning style for a good amount of time. We found Darrell. He is clear, concise, thorough, offers alternative methods to reach the solution, but most importantly explains the process in a way I can understand it. I appreciate his tempo and patience. His teaching method allows me to clearly see and understand the problem. He does not move to the next topic without ensuring first I understand the process. I am grateful for the professional manner in which he delivers my lessons. His confidence and clarity gives me confidence. He is a fantastic tutor and he is helping me gain confidence one lesson at a time. I have an exam this week which he has helped me prepare for. I am confident his help will yield good results. Thank you Darrell!

Best Chemistry tutor, period!

Darrel helped my daughter overcome huge struggles with her IB Chemistry labs and homework and also prepped her for exams. She has a new found confidence in her ability to handle the coursework after just 3 sessions! Would highly recommend to anyone!
