About Catherine

I have my master's degree in chemistry. I started tutoring in 2001 at Rowan University as I was finishing up my bachelor's degree. I continued tutoring outside of Rowan even as I worked in the industry for six years. I continued tutoring while I was in grad school. I have always enjoyed tutoring and the satisfaction of being able to help students understand chemistry as it affects the world around us. I use simple illustrations to teach the concept and process first before I apply it to the chemistry. During my master's degree, I was a teaching assistant for organic chemistry labs and for "Introduction to General, Organic and Biochemistry." I have also taken a course on methods and theories of instructional design - where we've learned how to teach chemistry.

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 my master's degree in chemistry. These courses are the basic building blocks to all other chemistry courses that I have taken. Additionally, I have tutored general chemistry (aka chemistry) for over 10 years. I am comfortable with both high school and college level chemistry courses.

Organic Chemistry

I was a TA for 2.5 years who taught organic chemistry labs. In past summers, I have taught three students organic chemistry so that they will have an advantage when they take it in the fall. Additionally I have tutored quite a few students who were taking organic chemistry on campus. The majority of my business is tutoring organic chemistry for UPenn Students. However I do tutor this subject for students from other universities.

Patient and thorough!

Catherine was awesome! From learning how to use a calculator to concepts of chemistry, she was able to help me find what exactly I was doing wrong and correct it! After just one session, my quiz grade and proved by 20%.
