Virginia Tech (PhD)
I have taught a full year of organic chemistry at Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia and at Towson State University in Baltimore Maryland. I worked at Nova Pharmaceutical Corp in Baltimore, Md in Drug Discovery and 25 years at Bristol-Myers Squibb in Chemical Process Development. I have co-authored over 30 publications and patents.

Ken helped me prepare for my upcoming college Organic Chemistry course. Over the course of the summer he basically taught me everything I will need to know for the entire fall semester. I am already seeing how my college lectures are simply review of the material I learned over the summer with Ken. He is very knowledgeable about chemistry and is great at teaching it as well. He patiently reviewed all of the chapter problems and provided additional information about how the chemical reactions related to everyday occurrences. He was highly motivated to make sure I learned everything I needed to know for the course. At the beginning of the summer I was worried about my fall organic chemistry course, but now that it has started I am very happy Ken did such a great job teaching me over the summer. I think Ken is a great chemistry tutor.
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 obtained my Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry at Virginia Tech. During my Post-doc at the University of Virginia I had the opportunity to work as an adjunct professor at Virginia Commonwealth University where I taught 2 semesters of Organic Chemistry. I also have teaching experience at Towson State University in Baltimore. While I was a graduate student at Virginia Tech I obtained extensive experience tutoring general chemistry as well as teaching the undergraduate organic chemistry and general chemistry labs.
