About Brendan

Hello, my name is Brendan and I am your prospective tutor! I am 22 years old, recently graduated from college where I studied primarily Chemistry and Japanese while exploring interests in other subjects. I love to learn and find great joy in learning. But learning is really most fulfilling when it is shared. As knowledge is one of the best gifts one can receive, tutoring is a wonderful way to help others. By tutoring, I am able to share my skills for the benefit of others' success.

I have experience teaching chemistry in a college setting and tutoring informally in math. I read often and widely, have travelled around the world, and speak multiple languages. Looking forward to meeting you!

Having studied advanced mathematics, I have a solid background in Algebra and Precalculus. I know math can sometimes be a dry subject, but its applications are quite interesting and useful in the world. The applications of math in modern science today have resulted in truly astounding discoveries, like quantum theory and relativity.

I have both theoretical and practical knowledge of chemistry and was accepted to top 10 graduate programs for a PhD in chemistry. Having done independent laboratory research for over two years, at the undergraduate level and also as a research fellow for the National Science Foundation, I understand both the study and practice of chemistry. I have presented research work at conferences and symposia. Moreover, I worked as a teaching assistant in a laboratory course.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! Please contact me if you would like to schedule a lesson or learn more about my areas of expertise. May you achieve success in your studies.

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 a BS in Chemistry (honors) and won the William L. Lettinger Chemistry Award in 2016 and the Excellence in Organic Chemistry Award from Ursinus College in 2015.

Organic Chemistry

I hold a BS in chemistry: during the course of my studies, I concentrated on organic chemistry as a sub-discipline. I have 2+ years of research experience in organic chemistry. Moreover, I passed the ACS organic chemistry exams I and II, exams which are commonly used by graduate schools to demonstrate a student's competency in a chemical discipline. I was accepted to multiple chemistry PhD programs with the intention of studying organic chemistry.

I can also provide awards in organic chemistry from the ACS.
