About Amir

I am an organic chemist with more than 17 years of experience in research and teaching organic, medicinal and natural products chemistry. I have a master's degree in organic chemistry and a Ph.D. in pharmaceutical sciences. I have one year of postdoctoral experience, two years of industrial experience as a senior synthetic chemist in a research-based pharmaceutical company and 2 years of academic experience as an assistant professor of organic chemistry. My background and expertise in drug design and development, medicinal chemistry, synthetic organic chemistry, isolation and structure elucidation of natural products, and cancer chemotherapy provided me with enough knowledge to teach all levels of organic chemistry.

My teaching philosophy’s mainstay is to use creative, new ideas, whether for the material covered, the evaluation process, or visual aids. However, the techniques I use depend on the type of students and their academic level. Freshmen students usually have very diverse different backgrounds; in fact, some of them do not have any scientific background at all. I anticipate this by discussing a real-life example (either an industrial or pharmaceutical application) that is related to each topic, to attract the students and make them excited about the material (i.e., to provide the big picture). This will also help them apply what they learn, both in examinations and outside the classroom.

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.

Very knowledgeable and encouraging tutor!

I've tried out a few organic chemistry tutors but without a doubt Amir is the best!! I'm currently in organic chemistry 2 but I wish he had tutored me for orgo 1 as well. It is obvious that he has had years of experience teaching because of his ability to explain concepts thoroughly yet concisely. I also really appreciate his use of real life examples to make concepts relatable and easy to underst
