About Alfonzo

I am a research scientist and educator with experience teaching and tutoring at the college level. I have coached and mentored many of my students and have written documentation in the support of their admission to pre-professional programs. My tutoring objective is to present the scientific concepts in the simplest possible way; even if I have to use props such as molecular models for stereochemistry, or toys such as a slinky to represent an alpha helix) or beads in a necklace for an unnatural or natural polymer, or any other structural device to make the science real and applicable. I also have a growing library of general. organic and biochemistry textbooks and other supplemental publications to use as additional resources for the concepts and problems to solve. I work with the client as a team unit constantly express a You can do it" attitude. We can all be winners with the right coach. Lastly, understanding the concepts is only good if you can apply them so critical thinking is the end goal of our sessions.

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.

I have served as adjunct lecturer for General, Organic and Biochemistry for over 10 years at a variety of academic institutions in Southeastern Pa.

Organic Chemistry

I earned a BS in chemistry from Tufts University, a MS degree in organic chemistry from Howard University and a PhD degree from Villanova University with organic chemistry as my subject specialty. I worked at a JNJ research facility as an organic synthetic chemist preparing pharmacologically active therapeutic agents.

We went over information for molarity, conversion factors, canceling out units, sig figs, and discussed upcoming exam on energy and rate. He was well rounded with knowledge and understood how to teach in a way that I would understand.
