I have 3+ years of experience tutoring Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biology and Biochemistry. I graduated from the university of Tennessee and plan to pursue entry to medical school. During my course work I received an A in the following classes: Chemistry 1, Chemistry 2, Cell Biology, Genetics, Organic Chemistry 1, Organic Chemistry 2, Biochemistry 1, Biochemistry 2. My success was a result of developing a system of study habits that worked for me. I would be glad to help you develop a the habits that will ensure your success.
