"Great Sideline Help for Organic Chemisty"

- Catherine, Las Vegas, NV on 5/26/15
Kerrie replied on 5/29/2015

Catherine thank you for this insightful feedback! Organic Chem is by far one of the most difficult courses to tutor at the college level, because the basic concepts are intuitive and the profound. Teaching the methods is straightforward, but as you mention, knowing their limits, applications, and results requires a give and take that depends so much on student effort. I applaud you for the amount of effort you put into learning this difficult material!
