Bio

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 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.

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.

Fantastic organic chemistry tutor

Catherine fit me in her busy schedule even though it was close to finals. She was patient and really great at helping me understand some of the more complicated concepts. I feel much more solid now for my exam and I would definitely recommend her.

She is Knowledgeable

She was very patient and explains everything in detail. She knew what topics I should focus on so that I can do well on my exam. She gave me confidence in my skills and she reassured me that everything will turn out fine.

Great job!

Catherine - I wanted to thank you for working with my godson. He texted me about an hour after your session last night and told me how very helpful you were to him. I asked him why he waited the hour to text me and he said after you left he stayed and completed the assignment since he grasped the material far better than before and that was because of you. Thank you. You left a positive "mark" on his mind and confidence and I appreciate that as does he. We will definitely be having you back as his tutor. Thank you again.

AP Chemistry

Catherine was awesome and a tremendous help to my son. He walked away after the 1st session feeling like he found a great support person. Invaluable resource !

Great tutor

Catherine worked with me on organic chemistry II. She knows the subject very well, and is one of the rare few teachers good at explaining the right thought process and work-flow for solving problems. She helped me a lot; I highly recommend her to anyone needing help with chemistry.

Andrey, 36 lessons with Catherine

Patient, Knowledgeable, Thorough

During their first tutoring session, Catherine was patient, knowledgeable and thorough with my son. She worked with my son, gave him time to assimilate the content covered and made time to follow-up with him later in the day! SO PLEASED with their progress!

Lori, 2 lessons with Catherine

Great Tutor! Really helped me when I was struggling.

I was having very hard time with organic chemistry. She replied quickly and was able to meet the next day. Even though we were not able to meet that many times before my final exam, she offered to meet with me as many times as I needed. I really recommend her, she was extremely helpful.

Great Tutor!

Catherine is very helpful and understanding. She makes you feel like you can do the work and helps you feel confident in doing the work even when you ask her for help at the last minute. I am an adult who went back to school and taking Organic Chemistry and Catherine has been helping me along the entire way.

Nancy, 12 lessons with Catherine

Catherine is a wonder tutor. She understands organic chemistry very well and is able to breakdown the subject matter so that you understand.

Catherine has figured out how to teach me organic chemistry where I can figure it out for myself. She has given me the fundamental tools to understanding this subject matter, which has helped me earn a "B+" in organic chemistry I and an "A" in organic chemistry II. Thank you Catherine for helping me gain the confident and succeeding in my courses.
