Chemistry can be a challenging subject for many students due to the conceptual nature of the material. However, once it has been mastered, it can be fun. I am a firm believer that there are no "stupid" questions.

Chemistry can be a challenging subject for many students due to the conceptual nature of the material. However, once it has been mastered, it can be fun. I am a firm believer that there are no "stupid" questions. Instead, it is a matter of students not completely grasping the material and I encourage them to ask as many questions as necessary until they understand the concepts being covered. My goal as a tutor is to help students understand how chemistry relates to their lives since introductory courses can come across as boring.

I like to use analogies to help explain difficult concepts, and I try to lead students to discover the answer on their own rather than simply providing them with answers to the problems they are working on. Sometimes this will require backing up to review a concept covered earlier in the class in order to master current material. My objective is for students to understand the "why" aspect of the subject instead of simply memorizing facts. If students understand how a concept works, they can apply that knowledge to related problems and solve them on their own, which leads to greater understanding of the subject and fewer mistakes on quizzes and exams.

I have taught and tutored general chemistry & organic chemistry for several years. Unlike most tutors, I have worked as a practicing chemist for ~20 years. In addition I am a licensed chemistry teacher in the state of Indiana, having completed my student teaching in a college prep chemistry classroom. This unique combination means that I KNOW the subject area, can RELATE concepts to "real world" applications, and UNDERSTAND how to help students improve their mastery over the subject. In addition, I was a mathematics minor in college and this has proven helpful in teaching chemistry since many students also struggle with the math involved in the coursework.

Chemistry

Chemistry

Chemistry is a challenging class for students. It is a mostly conceptual subject that involves the study of atoms and elements and how they combine to form molecules and how they react. I have been tutoring Chemistry students for more than five years, from high school (both college prep and AP Chemistry classes) up through college chemistry and know what the teachers are wanting students to master.

I have been a practicing organic chemist for 20 years and have taught both Organic Chemistry classes and laboratory work. I can explain "how" reactions occur and why they are useful in real life situations. I can also help students with the lab portion of the class.

Helpful at a moment's notice

Meg G. helped our tenth grader with some last-minute studying for a Chemistry GT quiz and was patient, knowledgeable and friendly. We appreciated her efforts and quick availability.

Knowledgeable tutor

Meg has helped me a lot! She explains concepts well and slowly. She hammers in key concepts of chemistry. I plan on learning from Meg during my whole time in Chem! She will explain and do any problem asked! Thanks for everything so far Meg!

Knowledgeable and well-versed in chemistry

I was having trouble with Spectroscopy and I had a test coming up within a week. She was able to help me get up to speed and prepare for it in a short amount of time. Money well spent.

Very knowledgeable and patient. Asked a lot of questions

Taught Acid & base equations and finding pH amounts. She took notes and gave them to my daughter. Really helped a lot. Went over quizzes that didn’t go so well and helped understand what was wrong.

Great Tutor With Excellent Results

Our high school sophomore student is a good student but struggled with his first test in AP Chemistry covering stoichiometry. We lined up Meg to re-cover and re-teach the material and prepare him for the 2nd test on the same material, and what a difference that made! He raised his score 2 letter grades. Meg was knowledgeable, patient, and was able to present the material in a way he could understand and learn to master. We highly recommend Meg for one-on-one chemistry tutoring.

Excellent Organic Tutor

Very organized and great at breaking down difficult concepts to help you understand. Very helpful in learning how to approach organic chemistry and provides many great resources to help you succeed

Nicholas, 1 lesson with Meg

Very patient

I needed help with a college chemistry mid-term. Meg met with me for over two hours and I was able to raise my chemistry score from my previous exam. Meg really broke everything down to the basics, where I was able to grasp the true meaning of the questions on the test. She was patient when I was lost and I appreciate that. I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing help with chemistry.

Great tutor

Meg was very patient and went over all my son's material until he understood everything. My son ended receiving an very good grade on his exam.

Great tutor!

Meg has been a fantastic tutor, helping me to prepare ahead of time for my general chemistry class. She is very knowledgeable and always comes prepared with extra teaching material and practice problems. Meg is able to assess my problem areas and takes the time to explain the concepts behind these topics. In addition, she's very easy, and a delight, to work with!
