Let's face it, College Gen chem and Orgo are hard. As a former college instructor and private tutor for over 8 years, I know the demands and expectations of professors. Let me help you break down the concepts so that you can understand them and succeed in your class. I've taught general and organic college courses, have worked with upperclassmen college students on how to teach underclassmen gen chem, and created instructional chemistry videos. My favorite subject to teach is Organic, which is not as bad as you think if you know how to look at the material. I taught over 700 hours in 2021 including High school chemistry, AP Chemistry, College level General Chemistry 1 and 2, and Organic Chemistry 1 and 2. I have worked with student from Ivy league to community college.

I have a Masters in Chemistry from University of Houston with a focus on Organic Chemistry and education. As well as a Bachelors in Chemistry from the University of Texas at Austin. I have taught at several Houston area colleges.

Please message me with any questions you have. So if you are struggling with chemistry or just want so extra help, let me know because I would love help!!

Organic Chemistry

Organic Chemistry

Organic chemistry is my favorite topic. I love showing students how the "puzzle pieces" of each reaction come together. Organic did not come naturally to me, so I relate to my students when they are confused. My focus in graduate school was Organic chemistry. I have taught 1st and 2nd semester organic Laboratory classes and been a TA for organic lecture and labs at 2 top universities and helped create online videos to discuss lab topics.

Knowledgeable and Caring Tutor!!!

Cotton has helped me tremendously in my 8-week summer chemistry course. She has taken many topics that are difficult for me to understand and has broken them down into simpler steps for me. I feel confident when I enter the classroom because I am able to take what I learned from her and apply it to my classwork. She has no problem explaining things to me in multiple ways until I understand the concept. Cotton is a must have tutor when taking Chemistry courses!

Helpful Session with Cotton

Cotton helped me prepare for my final exams for 10th grade Chemistry. Her knowledge helped me feel more confident to go into my exam with ease. Cotton made sure all my questions were answered and explained anything that would help me understand chemistry concepts better. So grateful she was able to help me out!

Excellent Tutor

Cotton was so helpful and made Chemistry so easy to understand for my son in such a short period of time. I wish we would have known her earlier in the year. Highly recommend her!

Relatable and knowledgeable

Cotton was really helpful and validated my confusions but also helped me to sort out my understanding! Thanks so much Cotton! You simplified things so that I don’t overthink so much!

Outstanding Chemistry Tutor!

Cotton has been one of the best science teachers/tutors my daughter has ever had. My daughter was struggling in Chemistry Honors this year and Cotton has taken the time to understand why my daughter was having difficulty solving problems, and helped her solve each and every problem she needed help with, no matter how difficult. She made sure my daughter understood the problem completely. She remained patient with her even when it took her a long time to grasp a concept and answered every question she had. She was always great about scheduling appointments and always tried to squeeze her in even when her schedule was packed. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

helpful and kind

Cotton made sure I understood the mechanisms and answered my questions without any issues. I look forward to continuing learning from her. Of the three tutors I have tried on wyzant, cotton is the best so far.

EXCELLENT

My son has really benefited from Cotton. She really teaches the material so a kid can understand. We just tell her the topic they are covering and then she goes through everything that my son needs to know. She's been a Godsend to us.
