Summa cum laude chemistry graduate offering chemistry tutoring online from Pueblo, CO

Methodology

As a recent chemistry student myself and a tutor of two years, I understand many of the hurdles that chemistry students often face. When I teach chemistry, my goal is to break down the confusing, technical jargon of the science, and then to explain the chemical principles using simple, every-day analogies (like cooking or sports).

Background

I am a recent chemistry graduate, but I have been offering professional tutoring for the past two years. I have tutored dozens of students every week in classes ranging from high school chemistry all the way to Organic Chemistry. I've gotten nursing students the grades in chemistry they needed in order to get into nursing programs, and I've gotten premed students the grades they needed in order to get into medical school.
