About Deanne


Bio

Organic chemistry is a challenging course with a bad reputation. It’s a subject that demands practice and immediate feedback often not available in large class settings. I’m here to help you understand the material and not only succeed in the course, but to appreciate the logic and power of the subject.

Organic chemistry is a challenging course with a bad reputation. It’s a subject that demands practice and immediate feedback often not available in large class settings. I’m here to help you understand the material and not only succeed in the course, but to appreciate the logic and power of the subject.

My PhD is in organic chemistry and I’ve been teaching for over 25 years. Having spent 4 years teaching medicinal chemistry to pharmacy students, 17 years teaching HS science, and 4 years tutoring full time, I know how to break down material and modify my strategies to match your individual learning style.

I know that tutoring is expensive and I work hard to make our time together as effective and efficient as possible. It helps if you let me know in advance what topics you would like to cover so that I can assemble practice problems and supplemental materials to use in our lessons. Having tutored 250 students over the past two years, most of them taking organic chemistry, I have many resources (including 14 textbooks).

Your success is what drives me – the reason I do this. Nothing is more fulfilling than seeing confidence develop in my students and sharing the joy of the high grades they earn. Please contact me if you have questions or wish to try a session. I’m here for you!

Excellent tutor

Deanne is very knowledgeable, patient and to the point which our son appreciates a lot. She was able to help him with resources to study too which made a huge difference in his preparation.

Tutor responded:

Vijaya, thanks so much for taking the time to write, and for the kind words. Viraj is doing great; he works hard and learns concepts quickly.

I'm Really Grasping OChem

General Chemistry was very tough for me, but Organic Chemistry has been much more fun and easier to grasp, especially with the guidance of Deanne. She explains new material so clearly and provides lots of sample problems to practice, which is what is required to do well in Ochem. I work with Deanne weekly and will continue to do so throughout this semester to ensure I do as well as possible. I highly recommend Deanne if you want to do well in Ochem, and especially if you have more chemistry to take after this class.

Thank you Chanel! We make a great team.

Wonderful tutor.

Deanne is a kind and patient tutor and is open to sharing external resources that can help you succeed. I know I will gain some of her knowledge going forward this semester.

Extremely knowledgeable Organic Chem tutor. Great at explaining difficult concepts.

Deanne comes prepared with charts and example problems. She is patient and takes the time to explain difficult concepts in detail. To really understand Organic Chemistry I would highly recommend using Deanne as a tutor.

Kelsea, I loved working with you too. Thanks so much for taking the time to write!

Excellent tutor!

My son has had several tutoring sessions with Deanne now, and her guidance, coaching and tutoring has been a total game changer for him! I'm so pleased we found Deanne. My son's result in a recent test is a reflection of how amazing she is: he went from a grade that was below the mean in his first test, to getting 100% in this most recent test. More importantly, she has helped build his confidence in his knowledge of the material, and helped him to understand concepts that previously he struggled with. He now really ENJOYS this subject!! Thank you Deanne!

Becki, I think your son is amazing. I've rarely seen a student so young with such a mature attitude toward learning. He will go far!

Great Organic Chemistry Tutor

Deanne--I am on Wyzant finding a math tutor for my son, and I saw your name and wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for your help last year. I was a successful first time med school applicant, and am now in my 4th month of med school. Couldn't have done it without you.

Org. Chem

This was my first tutoring session with Deanne. I was struggling with Org Chem I but she was very helpful. I’m looking forward to continuing tutoring with her. Very nice too.

Absolutely Amazing Organic Chem Tutor!

Deanne was amazing! So helpful and patient as she reinforce many of the topics that I was unsure of after class. Will definitely be returning for additional sessions before major tests. I feel so much more confident now. She never made me feel bad for not knowing how to do things, but reminded me when she felt like I could do the problems. --Sophie
