I have taught college chemistry, AP chemistry, as well as Pre-AP chemistry and regular chemistry courses for more than 20 some years. In these many years the most important experience is that I have worked with all levels of students, and I know how to teach and help different types of students to be successful in chemistry classes. With Wyzant I have tutored many college students, AP chemistry students, high school chemistry students and home schooling students. Many students had great improvement after a time period of tutorials. Some even had a surprising grade improvement from a "F" to an "A" after tutorials plus his/her hard work. It is a true reward and a pleasure to see students having a great improvement and doing well in their chemistry classes.

Effective tutor

Nina was able to explain and clarify concepts to my daughter. She was able to accommodate our request for a lesson at the last minute. My daughter got an A in her last test.

AP Chemistry

Nina was a very knowledgeable chemistry teacher and made the lesson very clear. My daughter said that she went through every step and made sure no matter how hard or easy she made sure you would get a strong hold of the material. She would always check up on my daughter and made sure she was comfortable and understood the material.

Nina knows chemistry

Midway through the semester, I found myself struggling to maintain a C in gen chem II, so I reached out to Nina. She understands chemistry, she understands how to teach chemistry, and she cares. She took the concepts of chemistry and made them relatable to me. She not only helped me improve my test scores, she helped me exceed my expectations. My final grade was an A, and I am grateful. She is an excellent teacher and has my highest recommendation.

Breaking Down AP Chemistry

Nina did a great job explaining and breaking down the information so my son could understand the content. She showed him new ways to figure out calculations and ways to check his work
