Bio

" ORGANIC CHEMISTRY IS REALLY EASY ", this is the first sentence I say to my students when I step in to the classroom the very first day of classes, and I usually get the same response from them, they laugh! However, I do mean it, Organic Chemistry is really easy. If I could just show people the way I see it, I am pretty sure anyone would understand it. I just love Organic Chemistry, it is my favorite subject, I am very very very passionate about it, and it is what I can do best.

" ORGANIC CHEMISTRY IS REALLY EASY ", this is the first sentence I say to my students when I step in to the classroom the very first day of classes, and I usually get the same response from them, they laugh! However, I do mean it, Organic Chemistry is really easy. If I could just show people the way I see it, I am pretty sure anyone would understand it. I just love Organic Chemistry, it is my favorite subject, I am very very very passionate about it, and it is what I can do best.

I have been teaching for a very long time. While getting my Ph.D. in Chemistry, I was a Teaching Assistant for the Organic Chemistry I & II courses and their Labs, so, I have taught hundreds of students all sorts of subjects, for example; reactions of alkenes, stereochemistry, chair conformations, ring flips, NMR problems, mechanisms of reaction, you name it!

However, I have observed a certain pattern that repeats over and over each year; the students that come to me believe that they just don't get Organic Chemistry, that it is so incredibly difficult, that they need super powers to understand it, and a lot of them actually end up hating the subject, losing their confidence, and passing the course is soooooo painful that once they are done with it, they don't want to hear about it ever again!

What if I told you, that none of the above "bad beliefs" are true?. You can understand Organic Chemistry, you can study and do well in exams, quizzes, assignments, not only that, but if you want, you can A this class, you just need a solid and good foundation to build upon, and once you have that solid foundation, you will become independent, confident and will see that Organic Chemistry is very logical and that you can actually figure out mechanisms of reaction on your own, even if you haven't seen that particular reaction before, because the first principles are always the same, they don't change.

This is all I gotta say, I look forward to hearing from you, helping you out become independent, and get those grades up!

Chemistry

Chemistry

1) I got an A in every Chemistry course in college. 2) I have earned a Master of Sciences in Medicinal Chemistry from the State University of New York at Buffalo where I took all kinds of Advanced Chemistry. I was also a teaching assistant for the sophomore General Chemistry class (Discussion and lab sessions). 3) I am currently getting my PhD in Chemistry (at the University of Illinois at Chicago) with a focus in Biochemistry and Synthetic Organic Chemistry. I took and passed again all sorts of Advanced Chemistry courses. I have been assigned as a Teaching Assistant for the General Chemistry course several times, and upon Faculty request and evaluations and ratings from the students, I have been assigned to teach the General Chemistry intensive course in the Summer of 2012 and Summer of 2013.

Fantastic Tutor!

I was struggling to understand anything my organic chemistry professor said and she never answered questions. So, I chose to find a tutor to help me through the class. Claudia is a great tutor and definitely knows how to explain things very well. She understands everything about organic chemistry because she has an extensive background in it. She is very patient and makes sure you know how to do the problems. Now, after each session, I go home, work on the problems, and actually understand how to work them out. I am very glad that I found Claudia and feel a lot better about walking into my class for quizzes and exams.

Accomodated Our Schedule

Claudia responded to our request for some intensive tutoring to get ready for a final AP Chemistry test. Claudia supplements my son's understanding of the material that he cannot get from a regular teacher.
