Organic Chemistry

My Ph.D. courses include advanced organic chemistry courses. I tutored undergraduate organic chemistry while I was a graduate student at the University of Minnesota. And finally, I taught organic chemistry lab as a visiting professor at the College of Wooster, and organic chemistry lab and lecture while a tenure-track professor at Lyndon State College.

MCAT

MCAT

I have many years experience tutoring the chemistry portion of the MCAT while a graduate student at the University of Minnesota. I have taught general chemistry, organic chemistry, and biochemistry as a professor, and so have extensive knowledge of the subject matter as well as many years experience teaching and tutoring chemistry. My knowledge of acid-base chemistry is especially strong and this allows me to be very effective as an MCAT tutor as students typically have the most difficulty with this aspect of the MCAT.

Great High School Honors Chemistry tutor

Elizabeth is helping my daughter who is a Sophomore in high school study for an honors chemistry course online. She has been very reliable, prepares for the lessons and has helped my daughter a lot. She sends feedback to me after the lesson with a summary and gives helpful advice about she can stay on top of the material.

Good Tutor

Helped explain a lot of chemistry topics I didn't understand. Very helpful and good at explaining topics. Wonderful tutor overall. Would recommend to anyone in need of chemistry help.

Richard, 1 lesson with Elizabeth

Extremely patient and knowledgeable

Elizabeth is an excellent communicator with both myself as a parent and with my daughter. She contacted her in advance so she would be properly prepared to help Sabrina. Even after the lesson, Elizabeth then sent a follow up email to give even more pointers and reminders to insure my daughter's success on her Chemistry final. She is a wonderful find as I did my research on the 260 possible Chemistry tutors and felt she would be a perfect fit for Sabrina's needs and learning style...and I'm happy to report I made the correct choice. Thank you, Elizabeth!

O Chem

Elizabeth was very patient and helped our son understand the concepts. He came back from Tutoring feeling like he had a better grasp and tools to help him study for the O chem Final. Thank you Elizabeth!

Just two sessions and I understand more than I have all year in class

Elizabeth's genuine interest in the subject not only keeps me engaged for the whole session, but her patient and understanding demeanor allows me the room to ask questions, take risks, and make mistakes, unlike in class where my teacher makes me feel embarrassed for not understanding. After only two sessions, my performance in class has improved immensely, and I am extremely grateful for the resources and help that Elizabeth has provided me.

Very knowledgeable and patient

Elizabeth is great, she is so patient and knowledgeable! I highly recommend her. She provided me with really useful materials to study with and takes time to make sure I understand all concepts.

Lauren , 1 lesson with Elizabeth

Very patient and talented tutor

It's obvious from even the first tutor session that Dr. Elizabeth W. knows her stuff. She's not just knowledgeable, however - her patience and willingness to go the extra mile to help students also contributes to making her a good tutor. After every lesson, she would send me links to Websites or point me towards TED talks, and point me towards several practice problems. She really is an A+ instructor. I could not ask for better help in passing what has to be the most demanding subject I've ever taken.

Laura, 23 lessons with Elizabeth

Thorough and patient chemistry tutor

Elizabeth has clarified many chemistry concepts for my son within just a few sessions. She's patient and makes chemistry fun, yet challenging for Erik. He seems more confident in the subject.

Yvonne , 9 lessons with Elizabeth

Passionate and Very Intelligent

I learned so much from her and she even helped me understand more about how concepts work, not just how to answer questions about them.

Sarah, 2 lessons with Elizabeth

A+ tutor!

Elizabeth helped to catch my daughter up on many concepts my daughter was completely overwhelmed by! She went from a failing grade to a B- in her high school Chemistry class. Elizabeth was patient, thorough, and very professional.
