About Paul

I'm an Arizona native. I was raised in a family of musicians but found a passion for science in high school that I have pursued through my undergrad studies in Idaho and my current graduate studies in NYC.

I tutored chemistry courses for 3 years at BYU-Idaho including 5 semesters as a director of the chemistry tutoring center. I also have research experience and currently work in Dr. Dixie Goss' lab exploring viral RNA translation initiation mechanisms.

I'm enthusiastic about chemistry. I've got a big whiteboard, a chemistry modeling kit (and central air) at my apartment. I've also got a metro pass so the tutoring location doesn't matter to me. If you're in need of a stereotypical nerd let me know. :)

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.

Biochemistry

I just graduated with a b.s. in chemistry and I'm currently working in a physical biochem lab at Hunter college to start my graduate studies. I tutored gen-chem and o-chem for 3 years as an undergrad.

Chemistry

B.S. in chemistry and 3 years experience working as a paid chemistry tutor for my undergrad university.

Organic Chemistry

I have a B.S. in chemistry from BYU-Idaho which included 2 semesters of o-chem courses and labs. After acing these classes my sophomore year I was hired as a tutor for the next 3 semesters by my o-chem professor, Dr. Mark Pugh. I transferred to tutor in another facility that offered a broader range of chemistry topics where I was soon promoted to be the chem center's director/tutor trainer; so I continued to help o-chem students for the remainder of my undergraduate experience. I received many positive reviews from students, but there were some who sought for a spoonfeeding session and were frustrated with my methods. I ask students a lot of questions as we work through problems to try and find fundamental principles of chemistry or even general study skills that they need to develop in order to maximize self discovery and make a framework for long-term success.
