About Venkatesan

I have graduated with a PhD in Theoretical Chemistry back in 2007. After working as a researcher for the next 6 years, I definitely find that my passion lies in Chemistry. I also worked as an Assistant Professor for three years in a college, which made me understand how different students perceive the subject. Perhaps, I should admit that I have learned how to simplify my own lectures based on the questions I got from the students. However, for many students, I found that their problem solving ability improves in an one-on-one sitting instead of large classroom teaching.

Also, I do give feedback about their tests. Especially the way they had written their answers. This process makes them to be alert next time. Once again, I learned how different brains think about one problem. There are always more number of wrong ways to answer a question rather than the more number of right ways. So, it is important that I tell students where they can go wrong. This is not only important for the exam point of view but also very important in learning the concepts.

I specialize in teaching General Chemistry and Physical Chemistry (in particular quantum chemistry, molecular spectroscopy and group theory). I can also teach organic chemistry for high-school students and college freshmen. I have special interest in math too as physical chemistry subjects are much more math oriented.

I have 3 years of college teaching and tutoring experience and more than a decade of research experience in chemistry. For availability, please check my schedule. We can meet in a common location or can travel to students' location provided there is adult supervision. My base rate is $35/hour for in-person lessons.

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.

Chemistry

I have expertise in Physical Chemistry subjects (especially, quantum chemistry, group theory and molecular spectroscopy) as it is my research field.
