Hamilton College (Chemistry)
I've never been one to turn down a question about the sciences. There is a rare joy in finally understanding a new concept, and I'm excited to help students reach these moments.
Though most of my recent experience is in an organic chemistry lab as a Teacher's Aide, I am well versed in all of the core sciences including Physics, Biology, and Chemistry, as well as more specific sub-studies including anatomy, embryology, physiology, vertebrate and invertebrate biology, cancer biology, evolutionary biology, biochemistry, organic chemistry, advanced spectroscopy, inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, and quantum mechanics.
I'm also great with kids and can tutor in more than just college sciences. This includes elementary through high school math or science and standardized test prep such as SAT or AP.
As a Chemistry Major at Hamilton College I spent 6 semesters as a Teacher's Aide and tutor in Organic Chemistry 1 and 2 (5 semesters) and in Advanced Intro Chemistry 125 (2 semesters). I also finished with minors in Biology and Mathematics. Before applying to colleges, I scored well on a handful of standardized exams including a 5 on AP Chemistry Exam and 800 in Chemistry Subject Test, 770 on Math SAT, 800 on Math SAT Subject Test, 5 on AP Calculus 1 Exam, 5 on AP Biology Exam, and a 770 on Biology Subject Test.
No science stands alone. To be able to connect the core sciences to applicable, memorable concepts, it requires a broad, multidisciplinary understanding of many fields. The challenge is rewarding, whether it be to achieve a perfect score on placement exams such as the SAT or AP tests, or to have a greater appreciation for how the world works on every scale. I will be enrolling in a Graduate Chemistry program from the University of Pittsburgh in the Spring and working in the Pittsburgh area until then.

He was really helpful. He explained everything in a lot of detail which made it eaiser. Also, he has a great personality.
Austin was a great tutor I really enjoyed working with him. I was just thinking to myself that this might not be the best career choice for me, but Austin made it easier. He taught me different techniques like using mnemonic devices in order to remember different parts of the skeletal system. It felt a little goofy but as I drove home it really stuck with me, I began to go over what he taught me and how to identify parts and what they were related to. After studying with Austin I know that I am ready for my test. I just wish that Austin was not moving, because now I don't know what I will do. He is a great tutor and will be greatly missed. Thank you Austin for all that you have done for me.
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 received an A in collegiate Differential Equations at Hamilton College.
I received an A in Linear Algebra at Hamilton College as part of my mathematics minor.
I was a Teacher's Aide for 5 semesters at Hamilton College under Shawna O'Neil. I did independent research study in organic synthesis of peptidomimetic compounds under professor Robin B Kinnel. I earned A's in both Organic Chemistry 1 and 2.
