About Susan

Hi There, Susan here. I am very knowledgeable in tutoring chemistry. I would love to help your student if she/he is struggling in chemistry. Chemistry is mostly math, so finding out the key on how to do this math will help open the door to knowing how to do chemistry.

I have a Bachelors degree in Chemistry from University of Missouri-Columbia. I am a stay-at-home mom, right now, seeking a science teaching position at any school around Albuquerque. I have a Secondary Science Teaching Certificate in order to teach science to seventh grade through twelve grade.

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.

Organic Chemistry

I have taken the courses: Organic Chemistry I (level 220), Organic Chemistry II (level 221), and Intermediate Organic Chemistry (a graduate level class-416). I received a B overall in all three classes. I tutored a couple of students in Organic Chemistry in college. In Organic Chemistry I, we covered "functional groups, nomenclature, resonance, inductive and steric effects, stereochemistry, carbonyl chemistry", and the overall "nature of organic reactions". The laboratory focused on the "microscale of synthetic techniques, gas chromatography, and infrared and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy"(NMR). The class met three times a week with a laboratory once a week (for a college semester (15 weeks)). In Organic Chemistry II, we covered "addition, substitution, and elimination reactions, molecular rearrangements, aromaticity, carbohydrates and heterocyclic chemistry". In this class, the laboratory again focused on "microscale organic synthesis" which included work in infrared and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), and GC/MS (gas chromatography/mass spectroscopy). This class met three times a week with a laboratory once a week (for a college semester (15 weeks)). In Intermediate Organic Chemistry, this graduate class stressed the "synthetic organic chemistry at an intermediate level". This class met three times a week for a semester (15 weeks).
