About Talha

I have a PhD in Organic Chemistry from New York University. I have taught college level chemistry for five years during my time at NYU. I have also done numerous hours of tutoring at the college level. I have helped students prepare for MCAT exams and DAT exams as well as the math and chemistry classes during the academic year. I am patient, attentive, and I believe in teaching through practice problems versus just lecturing. I have flexible hours and am willing to travel within NYC. I have helped dozens of students get the grades they want and I can do the same for you. I have a PhD in Organic Chemistry from New York University.

It is very important to me that my students leave feeling confident and ready to excel in their classes. I would encourage any of my students to be open and honest about how they feel during our session so that we can both have a positive experience.

I wish you the best of luck in your class.

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

Organic Chemistry is a study of compounds that contain mainly carbon and hydrogen atoms. This subject explores the connectivity on these compounds and also their reactions with other compounds. Proficiency in this subject requires mastering naming compounds, reactions to change the structure of the compound and mechanisms to show how the reaction occurs.
I hold a PhD in organic chemistry from New York University, and I am the recipient of both departmental and school wide teaching awards at NYU for organic chemistry. I have successfully tutored dozens of other students and helped them understand the subject. I am a patient and thorough instructor and will help them learn the material at whatever pace you need.

Should Be a University Professor

Last semester, my average in organic chemistry hovered around a D+/ C-. I studied for hours and could never fully grasp complex topics either, and not at the fast pace that was required. I tried to solicit the help of friends, but my grade showed little improvement. This semester, I was determined that I could perform a lot better in chemistry than my grade had reflected.
