I'm an advanced degree holding chemist who has spent considerable time in both academia and industry. In industry I have developed paint, cleaning products, aerosols, and lubricants. I have been teaching college level chemistry for nine years as an adjunct professor. I'm also a certified high school science teacher with 3 years experience teaching chemistry and general science. I have taught and tutored very basic courses in physical sciences to very detailed courses in chemistry and physics. My strengths are explaining difficult subject matter to those who have either never taken chemistry or to those that can't remember it.

Lori is a great Chemistry tutor. She is very available to my son and has helped him immensely. They have been meeting for about a month now and his grades have improved a great deal.
Lori was on time, stayed extra and was extremely patient with the student. She has helped alot each time they meet.
Lori is great at making complex concepts understandable for students. She provides additional material to assist you when possible, and if one method of explaining something doesn't work for you, she finds another way to explain it. She is very down-to-earth and treats you with respect. Learning with her is just plain enjoyable! She is very quick to respond and flexible if your schedule changes unexpectedly. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for assistance with what can be a difficult subject.
My child is a good student, but had a confidence problem in chemistry. She loves this tutor because she can let her "smart kid" guard down and even ask the occasional "stupid question" that she would be scared to ask in her normal class. She's getting her chemistry groove on now. Also, she has remained very flexible with her crazy extracurricular schedule!
Lori has the ability to take complex subjects, break them down to their basic form, clearly communicate that core knowledge, and then help the student build. She listens well, and really shows an interest in her student.
Lori explains how to solve chemistry problems. But she also provides the reasoning and understanding behind the problem.
This tutor is very relatable and she explains the subjects thoroughly. She makes nearly all of the topics we cover clear and easily understood. She makes the topics clear by showing a variety of examples and explaining until I tell her I feel comfortable moving on! I learn MUCH better when I work with her rather than sitting in class listening to my teacher race through the chapter in her quiet boring tone. This tutor is upbeat and keeps you interested in the subject!
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.
I have earned a Master of science degree in Chemistry. My minor area of expertise in graduate school was organic chemistry and organic reactions. I have taught organic chemistry to students at the college level.
