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."

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.

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.
