About Max

I have taught a wide range of subjects for the better part of a decade. I love chemistry and intend to make a career out of chemical synthesis. I have studied inorganic, organic, and bio-chemistry with great academic success. By internalizing the physical and chemical laws that run the universe, these courses fell into place for me; I would like to pass that gift down. I can always find a way to teach people these laws. I will do my best to present the content in the way that you prefer to learn. Organic chemistry is probably my favorite, and strongest subject. I know what trips students up, as well as how to fix those misconceptions or misinformation.

I held a 4.0 average in organic chemistry, intermediate inorganic chemistry, and biochemistry. I have worked for 3 years as a scientific consultant for corporate marketing at Thermo Fisher Scientific. I have acted as a teaching assistant (2 semesters) for organic chemistry lab, as well as lecture (1 semester). I am also proficient in wet chemistry techniques and spectroscopic analysis (MS/HNMR/IR/UV-Vis/AA/etc...).

I know what trips students up, as well as how to fix those misconceptions or misinformation. My students are consistently more successful in course material after our tutoring sessions. I can improve your understanding in chemistry whether you're struggling, or already a successful student.

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 tutored organic chemistry to college students from everywhere on the academic spectrum. Organic chemistry is a beautiful reduction of electron transfer and energy distribution; I understand it at a fundamental level and did very well in the course because of it; I want to bestow that intuition onto my students. Beyond tutoring, I have also acted as the teaching assistant for organic chemistry lecture and laboratory sections at my university. Organic chemistry is a rigorous course, but it is built around the systematic construction of carbon based molecules using a simplified combination of molecular orbital theory, thermodynamics, and some sparse quantum physics.
