About Eric

I am a graduate of Ohio Northern University with dual degrees in Chemistry and Physics. Upon completion, my GRE test scores placed me in the 99th percentile for chemistry. During graduate school I taught many recitation sections and my class always had the highest average. Although trained as an inorganic chemist, I have been working as an R&D chemist in organic chemistry for several years. I am also a former Sylvan Learning Center tutor (OGT and Physics).

I teach mainly by analogy. I do not believe in rote memorization, although there will always be a few things to remember. I always strive to be sure that you completely understand the material, not simply regurgitating facts.

B.S. Chemistry - Ohio Northern University 1994
Ph.D. Student (ABD) - SUNY Buffalo 1994-1999


I once had a professor say "We're here to teach you how to think, and we use chemistry to do it". I believe in that sentence with all my being. I teach so that you can teach yourself and be self reliant.

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.

Chemistry

I completed my B.S. degrees in chemistry and physics with a minor in math from ONU in 1994. I was ABD in the Ph.D. program at SUNY Buffalo. I was in the 99th percentile in the GRE for chemistry in 1994.

Organic Chemistry

I have a B.S. degree in Chemistry from Ohio Northern University. Their curriculum required 1 year of Organic chemistry as well as intermediate organic chemistry and advanced synthetic strategies in organic chemistry. I was in the 99 percentile in the Chemistry GREs and passed the Organic chemistry entrance exam for graduate school on the first attempt. I have tutored Organic chemistry since 1994. In addition, my previous positions were Organic chemistry, small alkyne based molecules to large polymers.

Trigonometry

Minor in math, consistent real world use of trigonometry (with physics).
