About Albert

I can teach Algebra, Calculus, Chemistry, and Physics. I have tutored online, but I much prefer teaching in person.

I have two children now in college, at Ivy League schools. I was their primary caregiver throughout their childhood, and helped them with their schoolwork whenever they needed it. They both took math up through AP calculus (one of them took Calculus BC). One of them took AP Chemistry, the other took AP Physics, so I have seen some of the work done in those classes.

My PhD is in Chemistry, 1988. I have not worked since 1990, since I was a full time parent.

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 a PhD in Chemistry. Organic chemistry: the art and science of designing molecules that will do things for the world. First the things that need doing: new antibiotics, treatments for cancer, better construction materials; every new substance a puzzle to solve, the pieces being known molecules and processes. Learn the names of the pieces, their properties, the methods for linking them together, and feel the excitement of knowing that this time this NMR spectrum, that melting point, proves that for once the experiment worked, all those other times that some obvious or subtle error caused a failure don't matter anymore. Think in 3D, right and left handed structures are importantly different; draw and imagine them in your mind. Organic Chemistry has a lot of memorization, but these are just the tools one needs, not the whole; any more than hammer, nails and boards are a house.

Organic tutor. — Albert is a very helpful person. After a lesson with him, the subject makes sense and the holes that I had before are cleared. He also makes organic interesting even though I have no interest in the subject matter. In addition, he is flexible and comes to a lesson on time. ...
