About Wayne

Hello! I've been tutoring chemistry for 25 years, with amazing success from students who come to me struggling and frustrated with the material and are at the top of their class once I work with them. The proof is in my students' success. Students can master chemistry when I help them relate the material to everyday concepts, and it's awesome to see their confidence with effort but without struggling.

I have a PhD in organic chemistry and am active in the industry for my daily occupation, but I am able to relate the concepts to students who are intimidated and frustrated by the material.

I have multiple success stories of students failing the class when they first come to me and turning it around to receiving one of the highest marks in the class when they finish their semester, including one student who scored 69/70 (100 percentile) on the ACS National Organic Chemistry final exam!

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.

Chemistry

I have a PhD in organic chemistry and active in the industry for my day job, while continuing to tutor students in both chemistry and organic chemistry on a regular basis with excellent results. The key to my students' success for the past 25 years is relating the concepts to those who are intimidated and/or frustrated by the material in order to help them thrive in chemistry. My PhD is from the Univ of Wisconsin at Madison, where I taught four semesters of undergrad organic chemistry class and lab at the university. My BA degree in chemistry (with honors of Summa Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa, and Dean’s Scholar) is from the Univ of Colorado at Boulder, and I taught two semesters of organic chemistry class and lab at Boulder as well.

If you're struggling with organic chemistry, Wayne is the perfect guy to help. When I first met with Wayne, I was a couple of days away from my first organic chemistry exam and struggling with the material. He was able to distill an intimidating amount of information into a few key points. If you're struggling to grasp a concept, Wayne always finds a way to relate the information to real-world sit
