George Washington University (Chemistry)
City College of New York (Graduate Coursework)
Hi, everyone my name is Kwasi and I'm a seasoned R&D Biochemist who develops diagnostic blood tests called immunoassays. My collegiate studies and professional commitment to chemistry has provided me with a nuanced understanding of my craft. Now I hope to show students that by developing their scientific reasoning skills they too can succeed in the field of science.
I cultivated a love for tutoring during my time at the George Washington University in Washington, D.C. I began volunteering for the campus’s free tutoring hours where I would tutor my peers and local high school students. It was here I discovered the efficacy of personalized of instruction, and realized the personal reward of observing students’ growth.
My teaching style focuses on developing scientific reasoning skills through understanding each aspect of a problem, creating concrete connections through narratives to aid conceptual understanding of topics, and building strategies to solve and check practice problems by examining related concepts.
I am well versed in general chemistry and math, and my availability is currently only on Saturday and Sunday mornings and afternoons for in-person lessons preferably in Manhattan. I’d be happy to meet students in public places, or their homes. Please contact me for more details. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you improve your studies!
I graduated from the George Washington University with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, a focus in biochemistry, and a minor in biology. I received "The George Washington Fellowship for Excellence in Battery Research" for my undergraduate research accomplishments. I was president of the collegiate professional chemistry fraternity on campus. I am currently a Biochemist in the medical diagnostics field.

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.
At the George Washington University, I participated in free chemistry tutoring with the campus's chemistry fraternity for three years. There I gained experience teaching the mathematics of chemistry to local high school students and my collegiate colleagues, including Algebra 1.
My chemistry education at the George Washington University has given me a thorough understanding of the subject as well as the mathematics surrounding it.
There I gained significant instructional experience while I tutored my peers and local high school students in general and organic chemistry for three years. Simultaneously, I performed as a research assistant in a nanomaterials lab all while completing my degree.
Now my experience extends to deeper practical applications of the subject, as I currently work as a Biochemist for an international German healthcare company involved in developing medical diagnostic tests. The hands-on, professional experience I can compliment to their classroom instruction will help students improve their scientific reasoning skills and their understanding of the material.
While completing my Bachelors of Science in chemistry at the George Washington University, I tutored both general and organic chemistry for three years. Now as a career biochemist, I use the principles of organic chemistry on a daily basis.
