Enthusiastic and Experienced College-Level Chemistry Instructor
I have a B.S. and Ph.D. in chemistry and have been tutoring/teaching chemistry for over 15 years. I was an instructor of general chemistry at Penn State University for several years before moving to Philadelphia. Since then, I have worked with students at UPenn, Temple, Drexel and Jefferson Universities in addition to students at local high schools. I have also used the online Wyzant whiteboard platform to work with students across the U.S. from universities such as Vanderbilt, Georgetown,...
I have a B.S. and Ph.D. in chemistry and have been tutoring/teaching chemistry for over 15 years. I was an instructor of general chemistry at Penn State University for several years before moving to Philadelphia. Since then, I have worked with students at UPenn, Temple, Drexel and Jefferson Universities in addition to students at local high schools. I have also used the online Wyzant whiteboard platform to work with students across the U.S. from universities such as Vanderbilt, Georgetown, Cal Poly, Cornell, and Northwestern. I have also worked with high school students taking regular, honors, IB, and AP chemistry. Over the years, I have garnered most general chemistry textbooks, as well as many exam questions and homework problems.
I love helping students learn and really understand the material. I make analogies and relate concepts to everyday life whenever possible. I have a sense of humor and always try to make learning fun. I love working one-on-one with students because I can see what concepts/topics are not understood and help build a strong foundation before moving on to harder topics.

Great First Lesson
My daughter really enjoyed her first lesson. She was able to ask questions and obtain a better understanding of the material. Thank You Stephanie! Can we schedule another session for next week?Denise, 1 lesson with Stephanie
Stephanie Saved the Day!
My son was struggling with calculating titrations in AP Chemistry. On short notice, Stephanie helped my son prepare for his exam. My son commented on how much he liked Stephanie's teaching style. Excellent tutoring session!Jennifer, 3 lessons with Stephanie
Stephanie is excellent!
She has been very patient teaching me chemistry. Math is not my strong suit at all and she has helped me learn so much! I went from failing to passing! I'm so glad I found her.Oma, 13 lessons with Stephanie
Knowledgeable Chemistry Teacher
Ms. Stephanie is highly informed in the field of chemistry and unites the bridge between student and tutor. Her lessons are very practical and centralized towards the individual learner. She is easy to understand and I am looking forward to continuing my course in Chemistry Honors with her.Vanessa , 17 lessons with Stephanie
Excellent tutor, lucky to find Stephanie!
My daughter wanted assistance with AP Chem as she starts the home stretch toward her spring exam. Stephanie is EXTREMELY comfortable and knowledgeable with all of the material. She is a good teacher: when my daughter just doesn’t “get” something in class, Stephanie makes details clear and fills all the gaps. No more mysteries! My daughter says she is great and we feel fortunate to work with Stephanie this winter and spring!Kirsten, 18 lessons with Stephanie
I was hesitant about online tutoring but my tutoring experience with Stephanie was better than any in person help I’ve had thus far. She is so knowledgeable and incredibly patient with me, and does an excellent job of simplifying concepts and problems as she walks me through them. She also saves our whiteboard sessions so I can print them out and work back through problems on my own. I would give her 10 stars if I could!Stefanie, 49 lessons with Stephanie
Knowledgeable and patient
Stephanie was really patient and did a great job of helping me out, now I feel confident about my upcoming exam. I needed help with understanding atomic numbers for a biology test and she did just that.Travis, 1 lesson with Stephanie
Knowledgeable patient tutor
Stephanie was enlisted to help with a summer AP chemistry assignment due on the first day of school. Stephanie was great. She guided my daughter through the assignment giving explanations when needed and extracting the knowledge she already had. She was patient, thorough, attentive, and knowledgeable. We would definitely recommend Stephanie and enlist her help throughout the year.Martrice, 1 lesson with Stephanie
Best tutor I have ever had!
I am a student who attends University of Houston. I always struggled with chemistry and found it almost impossible to do. Stephanie broke down chemistry in a way that made it very easy to understand. When I wouldn't understand something she would try to explain it in different ways and was very patient. She would work out each problem with me step by step , which was very helpful when I needed to review it again for the test. She would always make time out of her day to tutor me even if she was busy. She is very kind and truly cares. She makes sure that you understand something completely before she moves on to the next topic. Due to her help I ended up doing very well in the class. 10/10 I would recommend her!Alizay, 25 lessons with Stephanie
THE ABSOLUTE BEST!
Do you struggle with chemistry and feel like you're falling behind in class? Are you stuck on homework questions or feel unprepared for the next exam? Do you need simpler explanations - someone to break down each concept for you in an understandable way without feeling judged? Counting down the days before your final exams and feeling desperate? If you're any of the above, you NEED to contact Stephanie and set up a tutoring routine with her right away. I took General Chemistry II this past semester and as someone who is averse to the sciences, I desperately needed a tutor who could walk through each concept with me, explain how to tackle certain kinds of problems, patiently wait as I try to solve some on my own and constructively critique where I went wrong, have legible whiteboard handwriting, and not scam me for my money. Stephanie provided all this and more. She is amazing in her tutoring skills - she's fun to work with, she's ALWAYS prepared, and she makes herself very accessible! My only complaint is that she doesn't specialize in organic chemistry so now I am back to the drawing board. Will miss Stephanie and would highly recommend her to everyone!Pearl, 12 lessons with Stephanie
