I have a Ph.D. in Chemistry.

I am an experienced tutor in tutoring General, AP, and Honors Chemistry courses at the High School level and teaching many college-level Chemistry courses (freshman to graduate level).

Many students struggle and hate Chemistry because they have the misconception that Chemistry is hard and challenging to understand. I can prove this is wrong from the first lesson! From years of my teaching experience, I know the main reason that Chemistry becomes hard is that students do not learn the very basics of Chemistry in a meaningful and simple way. They rely on memorizing and often ignore to understand the real meaning. I believe that it is more important to grasp the concept than how to solve problems. Once you know the concept very well, the solving of a problem is quite easy. I will give priority to teaching the concept of the subject while helping the student to pass the subject with flying colors.

Every lesson will include many quizzes to make sure the student has gained the necessary knowledge. Lessons will be adjusted according to the student's level of understanding and requirements.

I enjoy teaching and I am satisfied only if the student is satisfied with my teaching and when I know for sure I helped my students to understand something they have been struggling with.

Excellent

Great tutor. Not only does he help with specific issues where I've been stuck in chemistry, but he also helps explain the concepts in a way that I can get a deeper knowledge of chemistry and what the concepts truly mean, and he is good at coming up with meaningful examples. He has also gone out of his way to offer as much help as possible, such as studying for tests.

Terrific tutor. My son got a lot of content efficiently

Menake taught my son some advanced Chem concepts for his high school honors class. My son was really impressed with how efficiently Menake conveyed the info. Menake was pinch-hitting for our regular tutor. we will definitely use him again if needed.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Menake is a great tutor! I am learning college level chemistry with no background knowledge in the subject and so far he has been great with explaining concepts extensively and patiently and helping me to understand the mathematical aspect of the subject as well! Would highly recommend working with him!
