College chemistry instructor tutors chemistry--college level and below--in, and around, Boise Idaho

Methodology

I currently work and Boise State University as a lab teacher. I hold a bachelors degree in chemistry and have tutored students for upwards of ten years. I'm open to private tutoring on up to groups of 10-15 students. I have experience in general chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, inorganic chemistry, and physical chemistry (limited). I've taught many students with different learning styles and can tailor the material to your needs.

Background

Over the past ten years I've taught, on average, 30-50 students per semester. I've seen students that I privately tutored raise their grade from a C at the start of the semester to an A at the end. I've also had students in lab class say something like, "that's the first time I've understood that. Thanks for teaching it that way."

I highly recommend Chris as your Chemistry tutor! He's smart, nice, and very professional. Chemistry was one of my hardest subjects in college and he made it so easy to understand that I actually became interested in the subject. Use him! He's awesome!

Chemistry can be a very intimidating subject, but Chris is very kind and patient. He genuinely cares about his students. Chris was one of my very first chemistry instructor's, and he made the subject interesting and fun. Chemistry will never be easy, but Chris will give you the tools necessary to be successful in the subject.

Kain

Chris is very knowledgeable and can easily explain complex concepts in a way that students grasp. He is also very friendly and makes the learning environment fun and conductive to your needs. I would highly recommend Chris for any Chemistry tutoring and teaching.

AJ

Chris taught me Chemistry as my college lab professor. He was unlike any other. Such a great teacher. Funny, intelligent, relateable...he made chemistry come to life.

Collin

Chris was an amazing lab instructor, so much so that I intentionally sought out his section multiple times. Not only does he know his chemistry, but he knows how to teach it. He’s also just a great guy who somehow made three hour labs fun. I would recommend Chris to anyone looking for help with chemistry!

Gregg

Having had Chris teach my Chemistry lab class, I can vouch for his skill in the subject and his classroom management. He kept an easy going feel that diffused the tension around this tough subject.

V
Veronica

Chris was my teacher for chemistry at Boise State. I wish that he taught all my chemistry classes! I didn't have to get a tutor for his class because he taught it so well. Chris is very knowledgeable, talented at explaining information, and never makes you feel stupid. I would give Chris a 10/10 for teaching information.
