About John

NOTE: Currently only accepting students for the weekend due to new job hours. Apologize for the inconvenience!

Hey guys,

John here, just a little about me: I completed my Associate's degree with honors at Collin College and transferred to the University of Texas at Dallas to study chemistry. During my transfer, I was accepted to the UTD Summer Research Program where I worked with the Ferraris research group on supercapacitor development & fabrication. I stayed onboard through the rest of my undergrad, was selected to present my work at the 46th ACS Meeting in Miniature at A&M Commerce, and went on to place as a finalist at the 2013 UT Dallas Undergraduate Research Competition. I graduated from UTD with my B.S. in Chemistry in 2014.

Recently I was hired as an associate scientist for Abbott Diagnostics Division, where I work on developing new medical diagnostic equipment in the Clinical Chemistry department.

I've been a tutor at WyzAnt since summer 2012, helping students learn to excel in confusing, frustrating courses. Chemistry is a difficult yet rewarding subject; I'll work with you to help you achieve proficiency in the field, and to master your classes for whatever path you're taking.

Thanks,
John

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra is required for many higher-level topics in math, science, business, and finance, so students will benefit from a strong foundation in algebra early on. Sessions emphasize methods of problem solving for linear equations, polynomials, inequalities, rational functions, radical functions, word problems etc. for course mastery, and to equip students for success in later courses.

Chemistry

B.S. Chem from UT Dallas, two years tutoring experience through WyzAnt. General chemistry sessions focus on problem solving, concept reinforcement, and learning chemical vernacular. Topics include periodic trends, Lewis structure determination, molecular geometry, stoichiometry, acid-base chemistry, electrochemistry, ions and solutions, chemical equilibria, thermodynamics, and biological applications.

Organic Chemistry

B.S. Chem from UT Dallas, two years tutoring experience through WyzAnt. Organic chemistry sessions focus on learning name reactions, understanding their mechanisms, predicting products, chemical synthesis, and applying critical thinking to complex problems. Topics include hydrocarbons, stereochemistry, substitution/elimination reactions, functional groups, spectroscopy, aromaticity, and organometallic reactions.
