About Sanford

I am a synthetic organic chemist by training and vocation, but teaching has always been my passion. I love breaking down concepts and seeing that flash of understanding on the student's face. Everybody has a different learning style. The continuing challenge for me as a tutor is figuring out how best to relate to the student.

People seem to be impressed by my credentials - a Master's degree in organic chemistry and a long career in industry. Knowing the material is only half of what it takes to tutor. The other half is being able to communicate that knowledge. I have tutored students occasionally my whole life. Now I would like to get more serious about it. I will come to you, meet in a library, or work online. I am also willing to meet with a group of students for homework help.

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.

Algebra 1

I have a M.S in Organic Chemistry and many years of experience as a chemist in industry. I completed four years of high school math and three semesters of college calculus. I have a passion for teaching, especially one on one.

Chemistry

I have an M.S. Degree in organic chemistry. I have close to 30 years experience as a chemist in the industry. I have taken three semesters of college calculus. I have a passion for helping people understand scientific concepts. It takes both the knowledge and the ability to communicate the concepts to be a good tutor.

Organic Chemistry

I have a Master's degree in organic chemistry. My Masters thesis was titled, "Generation and Synthetic Utility of 1,3-Dithiane Dianions." In addition, I have spent 25 years making organic compounds in the pharmaceutical and fine chemical industries. I may be a bit rusty when it comes to name reactions, but I do know my stuff. I live it every day at work.
