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 was on time, stayed extra and was extremely patient with the student. She has helped alot each time they meet.

Sean, 3 lessons with Lori

Great tutor!

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.

Tanya, 6 lessons with Lori

Very flexible and patient!

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!

Judy, 9 lessons with Lori

Knows how to make it real

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.

In-depth explanations

Lori explains how to solve chemistry problems. But she also provides the reasoning and understanding behind the problem.

L, 7 lessons with Lori

Very down to earth and easy to understand!

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!
