Hello! My name is Taylor and I'm a third-year Ph.D. student in Organic Chemistry at Utah State University. I decided to pursue my doctorate after graduating with a Bachelor's in Biochemistry due to my love for organic chemistry research. I'm the product of truly caring professors who chose to pursue careers in academia to exclusively teach, instead of focusing mainly on research. What that provided for me were professors who had a full-time focus on teaching, tutoring, and mentoring. This had given me a unique perspective on teaching and tutoring since I've been exposed to professionals that had refined and honed their methods over many years of lecturing. With that, I've also seen how different methods of teaching work for various types of students, so I will be effective in tutoring regardless of the student's learning style. One last thing, I know exactly how it feels to not understand when first learning Chemistry; I have been in your shoes!

I have experience tutoring at the high school/college/graduate level (Yes, even graduate students need help sometimes! I myself seek the help of students in other disciplines of Chemistry if I don't initially understand a concept.) and experience teaching at the college level. I've taught General Chemistry for the past year and specialize in Organic Chemistry for my research, so I can tutor in both areas. I have a large personal library of textbooks I can pull questions from for extra practice.

I've been exposed to this material for over eight years and have been reading, learning, developing cutting-edge chemistry for nearly five.

Chemistry

While pursuing my doctorate, I've had to fall back upon the basic principles taught in beginner Chemistry more than I would have expected. This is mainly due to the fact I've been teaching Introductory Chemistry at my institution for the past year. However, I've found these basics to be very helpful in my research as well. For that reason, I know the subject matter very well and will be effective in answering any misunderstandings or reasonings (or why is this stuff important) on this material as I've probably have had the question asked before.

Organic Chemistry

Organic Chemistry

I currently perform novel research in organic chemistry. Specifically, my lab develops molecules to be used as probes for the biological role of carbon monoxide. We do this by synthesizing many molecules that when are triggered, either by light, heat, other small molecules, or enzymes, release carbon monoxide. I utilize the basic concepts taught in undergraduate Organic Chemistry each and every day to help me develop ideas for new molecules.

Amazing Tutor

Taylor knows organic chemistry really really well and is incredible at teaching it. He will work through problems in an intuitive way and will help you in your organic chemistry journey.

Zainab, 1 lesson with Taylor

KNOWLEDGEABLE AND STRAIGHT FORWARD

DIELS ALDER HEAVY PROBLEMS. PROBLEM SOLVING TECHNIQUES AND TIPS. PRETTY GOOD FIRST LESSON.

Charles, 2 lessons with Taylor

Amazing, smart and excellent tutor

Taylor helped me gain the important foundation in order to master chemistry. He helped enforce the crucial conceptual ideas on chemistry, not just the math. I will be seeing Taylor again for another session.

Great tutor!

Taylor explained very clearly about materials and teach important thing I need to know! I was thought some arrow pushing mechanism and Hammett plot and he was very professional with these. Great tutor for my first tutoring:)

Grace, 3 lessons with Taylor

Great Explainer/Efficient!

Taylor breaks it down perfectly for me to progress through the mechanism for Ochem. If it wasn't for him, I'd be lost going through a bunch of HW problems aimlessly and not absorbing the information. If you need someone that can go through the problem efficiently, I would highly recommend Taylor!
