About Dan

As an experienced high school and college chemistry teacher, I have helped many students succeed despite their fear of chemistry, or an unfortunately poor teacher they have. You will be so prepared for class, you will be confident enough to help your fellow classmates.

I am very experienced at organic chemistry and college chemistry. You will benefit from my experience and ability to predict what questions will be asked on these tests. I am familiar with all the college texts.

As an experienced AP chemistry teacher and reader, I know what AP chemistry looks for in the short answer part of the test. You will be well prepared to earn a 5 on this AP exam.

My sessions will test you with typical test questions you may be asked in class so that nothing will surprise you at exam time. I like to do 90 minute sessions each time in order to have sufficient time to cover a wealth of material.

* That old review about my not being available during tax season no longer applies. I am no longer employed at that tax preparation firm, so I am available at anytime.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Chemistry

I have taught high school and college chemistry for 30 years. I am an experienced AP Chemistry teacher and Reader (grading the AP Chem tests). There is no chemistry text I have not seen. Because I have college chemistry experience, I can help with all the material in Gen Chem I and II of a college chemistry class and provide excellent exam questions to prepare the student for anything the professor could throw at them.
I am equally experienced in organic chemistry as well (my favorite!) and can prepare any student for the college courses or for the MCAT portion involving chemistry or organic chemistry.
You will not find anybody who is as experienced and at the same time very good with struggling (fearful) students.

Organic Chemistry

I have taught college level organic chemistry for 20 years and tutored many for the MCAT portion involving organic chemistry. This is my favorite subject to tutor and is usually the most fearsome for students. I will help the student overcome any intimidation they may have and cause them to become very confident in this course.
I have seen virtually every organic chemistry text printed. Nothing can be taught in a college course that I have not already seen or experienced. My preparation techniques will enable the student to ace the class, and even feel confident enough to help their classmates.

Very knowledgeable!

We went over a bunch of homework questions I was struggling with. He shows you much easier shortcuts to arrive at the same answer and his formulas make more sense than the ones we are taught. Really simplifies in a way that is easy to understand
