Hi! I'm Bryan. Struggling with Organic 1 or 2? I can help! Struggling with Gen Chem 1 or 2? Sure! I can help there as well with practice problems tailored to your course curriculum!

Whether you're looking to prep for an exam or just understand those elusive concepts your professor teaches, I can get you prepared and confident before exams!

I have 1,000+ hrs of experience developing clear explanations to problems in a step-by-step process. I've helped international students with a language barrier score A's and B's in chemistry! Most of my international clients become fluent in diverse chem topics in just a few months! In Fall 2021, an international client taught resonance to her biochemistry tutor after working with me using my sample problems. I have achieved these results by being patient and flexible adjusting my explanations and approach to accommodate each student's unique learning style.

I have also helped students when zoom lectures are insufficient. Most of my students report dramatic improvement in their grades at Penn State, Brown, UGA, Florida State, UCSD, Univ of South Carolina, and Clemson!

Courses and Topics:

General Chem 1:
Stoichiometry, SI Units, Accuracy vs Uncertainty in Measurements, Balancing reactions, finding Limiting reactants, Lewis Structures, VSEPR Geometry, hybridization, and Acid-Base reactions

General Chem 2:
Calorimetry, Calculating Free Energy reactions, Enthalpy, Equilibrium constants Keq, Kc, Kp, and Q, Redox reactions, and Ecell

Organic Chem 1:
IUPAC, Sn1 vs Sn2, Markovnikov Rule, carbocation stability, chair conformers, Newman projections, stereochemistry, Synthesis, Arrow mechanisms

Organic Chem 2:
NMR, Grignard reactions, Aromatic substitutions, carboxylic acid derivatives, Aldols and enolates, Epoxidations, oxidation of alkenes, reduction of carbonyls, aromaticity and Huckel Rule

See a few of your topics? I'm available most weekdays 9 AM to 4 PM and 8 PM to 11 PM Eastern. As well as most weekends so feel free to reach out!

SAT Reading

SAT Reading

Reading comprehension is an important skill for every student regardless of their field of study or interests. As a chemist for example, I spend months on certain occasions writing abstracts and research reports which requires me to read perplexing articles from professional chemists. Since then, I have been accepted to conferences, scored well on reading tests and continuously apply this useful skill in my research.

Earning a B.S. degree in chemistry has exposed me to a wide-range of chemistry courses. I especially have experience with ideal gas law, atomic structure such as orbitals, equilibrium reactions, bonding, acids & bases, and electrochemistry. My focus is making sure students understand the concepts well enough to be confident and self-proficient after tutor sessions.

Organic Chemistry

Organic Chemistry

I have been teaching organic chemistry full-time with a M.S. in chemistry since 2019. I have taught 15 students how to understand a few concepts that can be applied repeatedly to ace organic chemistry! During my undergraduate career, I scored in the 95th percentile on the ACS final and began tutoring organic later that year in 2011. I received an A in organic 2 and soon realized what I wanted to with my life! Organic chemistry is not a memorization course as many are led to believe. I can give you the tools to break away from un-productive studying to become an expert!

Knowledgable and extremely cooperative

It is evident from the beginning that Bryan knows his chemistry. He has multiple strategies to ensure you understand the material. After our session, he sent me extra practice problems to study ahead of my exam. Truly a great tutor!

Jackson , 3 lessons with Bryan

excellent!!!

He’s a great tutor! Knows the material and can explain anything until you understand it! Very patient! Highly recommend!

BRYAN IS WONDERFUL

It's so nice to work with someone intelligent who doesn't make you feel dumb for not understanding something right away. Bryan is excellent! Very patient, very accommodating, very knowledgeable. He does an excellent job of explaining even the most complex problems by tying them to fundamentals that you understand. I've worked with him for months and have felt much more confident and comfortable with the material. I'd recommend him to anyone!

kate, 2 lessons with Bryan

Very helpful

We went over my organic chemistry content and I was very confused but Bryan really helped me to understand it. Very knowledgeable and patient and gave me multiple example problems to work on

Knowledgeable and Helpful

He was very helpful! He taught me a much easier way to remember the IUPAC structures and names. Before my lesson, I was very stressed because my chemistry final was coming up and the last chapter, organic chemistry, was very confusing to me. He helped fill the gap in understanding between my professor and me. I feel much better about my upcoming final now.

Hi Emily! I really enjoyed working with you during the fall and I wish you the best of luck going forward. I'm always here if you need help! :)

Extremely thorough and personable!

Brian is an awesome guy, very real and great at assisting with chemistry problems. He is very explanatory in the breakdown of what needs to be learned, but not too lengthy either. Definitely recommend him if you are looking for an amazing chem tutor.

Hi Emily! I really look forward to working with you again this spring 2022 semester. We'll have more chemistry problems for us to master together!!

Organic chemistry

Bryan is an awesome tutor. He is very knowledgeable and his patients when I'm struggling to grasp a topic is greatly appreciated. Im so grateful I found him on wyzant.

Organic Chemistry

Bryan responded in a prompt and courteous manner. He was very knowledgeable and patient with my questions and disorganization. Im looking forward to additional sessions and excelling in the class now that I have found a competent instructor.

Valarie, 4 lessons with Bryan

great teacher very patient and nice

Bryan B has only been my tutor for two days and I’ve learned more in our sessions than i have this whole summer semester. He has given me tools and textbooks to help expand my knowledge on college chemistry.
