About Alka

I have many years of experience teaching my own children and other people's children, all through the end of high school. It is a joy and a privilege to help students to understand concepts, to get a sense of the bigger picture of the particular subject, and with due diligence to master the subject. Teaching is far more than merely imparting facts to the student - it is also about training the student to properly develop study techniques applicable to the subject matter, and to find something in the subject to grow the student's interest in the subject.

I want to help you take your interest and your knowledge to the next level. I want you to succeed at the subject, even if you never take a class in this subject again.

I am an outstanding tutor because of two simple facts. First, I have a PhD in Chemistry, with years of academic, government, and commercial experience. Second, I have been homeschooling my children since 2002, and have taught them a wide range of subjects from early grammar school through the end of high school. My two oldest children are now A students at a top rated college.

I can help you get to the next level - whether you are a grammar school student struggling with elementary science questions, a high school student fascinated by chemistry, or an undergraduate/graduate student who needs a little assist to clarify points from your university/college class. Please contact me to learn more and schedule lessons.

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.

Organic Chemistry

I have a PhD in organic chemistry, was a post-doctoral fellow at the National Center for Agricultural Utilization Research in Peoria, IL (back when it was the Northern Regional Research Center for the US Dept of Agriculture). I also worked as the Director of Research at International Lubricants in Seattle, WA, developing bio-degradable engine lubricant additives. I have multiple publications and patents to my name.
