About Chris

Science classes have always been my favorite courses growing up. Chemistry and biology in particular have been interesting to me because of their broad applications and the sense of reward the comes with finally understanding the difficult material.

As a result I am now finishing up my degree in biomedical engineering and I will be applying to med schools later this year. Being a Biomedical Engineering major, I have taken many courses in both Biology and Chemistry. I have taken biology, cell biology, general chemistry 1 and 2, organic chemistry 1 and 2, and biological chemistry. For the Gen. Chem. American Chemical Society (ACS) final I scored in the 100th percentile while on the O-Chem final exam I received the class high score. Additionally, during the Fall of 2015, I was a teaching assistant for an O-Chem 1 course.

Aside from the course material itself, I really love helping other people understand each of these classes and feel the same sense of accomplishment that I felt when I was first taking them. For each chemistry/biology class that I've taken over the years, I've had numerous people help me along the way.

From TAs to classmates, so many people have helped me understand the material and from what I've experienced in the past, the most rewarding part of the entire process is to go on and return the favor by helping others understand the material for themselves. These science courses are inherently difficult, and believe me, understanding them can be a burdensome and frustrating experience. However, once they are broken down and finally understood the level of satisfaction and accomplishment makes it all worth it.

Helping people feel this way is something that I can't get enough of and I really love doing it. Over the past few years I've been attempting to do so as mush as possible by being a tutor for Chi Epsilon (an engineering honor society) and by being a teaching assistant for organic chemistry 1. Both of which have greatly helped me figure out what teaching methods work well. Whether you're in high school or college, science courses are inherently difficult. From my own personal experiences, having people that can help you along the way makes a huge difference. If you'll give me the chance, I'd love to help you through the frustrating stages of these classes until you feel as comfortable and confident with them as I do.

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.

Organic Chemistry

I have taken 2 semesters organic chemistry at the University of Utah, receiving an A and an A-. I received the high score on the final exam for the first semester. I was also a teaching assistant for organic chemistry 1, during which I helped students of various levels understand the material better. Methods of teaching included practice problems, short lectures, and one-on-one personal development.
