Hi! I am a very experienced chemist who would love to assist you in whatever way I can to help you reach your personal goals. I have a B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. - all in biochemistry and chemistry. I have been studying and working in all areas of chemistry and science for over 15 years, and have taught and tutored many students through my career. My primary focus was on organic chemistry, biochemistry, and analytical chemistry, and have tutored and taught students at all levels of study - from high school, college, and beyond. I have spent my life learning about science and furthering my chemistry expertise. There is nothing more gratifying for me than to spread knowledge and teach others the beauty of science in a way to hopefully let them understand and see the world in a different way. The air that we breathe, the world we live in, the food that we grow and eat, and our bodies themselves are all chemistry. Everything we know is made up of atoms and molecules, and getting a glimpse of the inner workings of all of these things can be a beautiful and wonderful thing.
Whatever your goals are - whether you are just starting out with the basics of chemistry & biology, or are looking for advanced college level tutoring, I am here to help. I pride myself in being a great communicator to all people, all ages, and all prior levels of knowledge. I have instructed hundreds of students through the years, and even was awarded an "outstanding graduate student teacher" award while I was completing my Ph.D. and teaching college students general and organic chemistry. My main focus will be on helping YOU. Whatever your learning style, and whatever your goals are, we will tailor our sessions to most effectively and clearly allow you to truly understand the concepts and ideas.
My primary focus in my education and laboratory work was in biochemistry and organic chemistry. However, I did quite a bit of laboratory work in the field of physical chemistry, which was heavily physics and mathematics based. This puts me i

Specialized and detailed review
My daughter was happy with the help she received. She is more confident and have a good attitude towards learning. Thanks for th3 great session.Prem, 1 lesson with Dan
Dan did a great job of helping me better understand my organic chemistry class. He was able to explain concepts my professor rushed through in more detail. He was easy to work with and I look forward to another session before my final.Emily, 5 lessons with Dan
Great tutor, so grateful we found him!
Our daughter was really overwhelmed with her college chemistry course after getting really sick the first week of her first semester and getting super behind right from the beginning. We found Dan through the instant help feature on wyzant and he was just super helpful and also nice. He broke down difficult concepts for her so that she could comprehend them and calm down and complete her assignments. We’ve used him a couple of times when she’s been behind and we’re super happy with his tutoring!!!! Thank you so much, Dan!!!!Jenn, 1 lesson with Dan
Very Knowledgeable and thorough
Dan makes sure to cover every topic that I ask about in great depth in an efficient manner. He makes it very easy to understand every topic that I don't understand so that I leave every lesson understand as much as possible.Boo Min, 20 lessons with Dan
Very knowledgeable and helpful tutor
He went over some key concepts on organic chemistry and helped me with preparation for my exam. He was very good at making the harder concepts seem easy to understand.William, 23 lessons with Dan
Excellent first session!
I downloaded the Wyzant app hoping to find someone who is extremely knowledgeable about organic chemistry and biochemistry, but can break it down into simpler terms for me. Dan is that person! He’s really easy to communicate with. He makes you feel comfortable asking him to redo a problem or explain it in another way. Dan was also able to make up examples for additional practice! I had several light bulb moments during today’s session. I enjoy the passion and confidence he has in the subject.Teil, 3 lessons with Dan
He’s great at what he does, he’s very helpful He had the answer to all my questions as well as he told me if I had more questions he would help me on his own time, I’m new to this online tutoring but I loved him so take him for sureJames, 2 lessons with Dan
Organic Chem II. Bane of students all over. Out of school for 6 years. I have never used an online tutor, being out of school for some time. I had a few hours with him, and something he said about electron clouds all the sudden made me start to do a whole lot of problems more out of intuition than memorizing. I had a whole review for the final exam I have tomorrow, really thought he would just help on the harder synthesis or spectrum problems. Basically, if I had NOT gotten in touch with him, I would have done sooo much worse, as it turned out a lot of the problems I had "completed"... were wrong. Anyway, my first tutor completely bailed on me last minute, and Dan stepped up out of nowhere, even AFTER calling him a girls name (I was frantically copying and pasting 'request help' messages to all the tutors I could find), and then took all the time I needed. Cheers to Dan. Saved me a lot of time, and just got a 96% on a physics final today because of it.Sam, 1 lesson with Dan
