About Roman

After completing organic chemistry coursework in my undergraduate career, I was determined to help others get through this seemingly terrifying course. I have been tutoring organic chemistry for three years now and was previously a paid teaching assistant for the subject at CUNY Hunter College. As someone who doesn't like the idea of blind memorization, I strongly emphasize an understanding based approach to learning Orgo. I try to teach my students the concepts within the subject rather than memorize a bunch of rules. This permits them to tackle any problem without having seen it before as well as think outside the box to answer the more difficult questions that professors like to ask.

Organic Chemistry is often a difficult course for students. It is sometimes all that stands in the way of having a successful pre-professional application for graduate schools such as Medical, Dental, Optometry, Physician Assistant, Pharmacy, etc... Having been one of these students, I completely understand the pressure that there is to do well in the course and for that reason I aim to have all of my students not only pass the course but receive high scores on their exams. It seems silly to me for a student who is passionate about their future to give up simply because of one subject.

Tutoring for the past two years has taught me all of the different learning styles that students have. During the first session, I like to get a feel for how much a student learns and how they have learned the information so far. From there we develop a schedule that will help learning be most efficient. I encourage students to get additional help as early as possible because I believe Organic Chemistry is a course that emphasizes consistent practice rather than one-time learning.

I have just completed my first year at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School and have the summer off to dedicate to tutoring.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions regarding availability, teaching style, or location. I promise to respond quickly and answer your questions to the best of my ability.

I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Organic Chemistry

I was a volunteer TA at CUNY Hunter College in Organic Chemistry from Fall of 2014 to Spring of 2015 during which I held weekly office hours and answered questions about the material. I also did private tutoring with about 5-10 hours a week. Currently I am an employed TA at CUNY Hunter College where I teach 4 hour-long recitations and also hold office hours. I still currently tutor about 5-10 hours a week. I emphasize conceptual learning with a lot of practice over blind memorization.
