Private tutor in Brentwood, TN
I received my Bachelor of Science at the University of Alabama in 2012, and went on to earn my Master of Science in Organic Chemistry in 2015.
One of the best breaks from lab work in graduate school was teaching and tutoring! I have taught as a Graduate Teaching Assistant for three years in organic chemistry (6 semesters), teaching both in the lab and in the class. During this time I have also tutored for both Organic Chemistry I and II on the side (class or lab). I also have four years of actual organic chemistry research under my belt! While I initially went to graduate school to become a research scientist, my focus shifted to teaching after I found out I enjoyed it so much! I took on multiple students in one-on-one tutoring sessions every semester, and helped them to succeed in organic chemistry. College students fear organic chemistry more than most classes, but I assure you I can make it not only understandable, but pretty simple! There are a handful of basic principles (pKa, electronics, reactivity, etc.) that I use in concert with a student's homework, exams, and practice problems to turn organic chemistry from an overwhelming, impossible, memorization-fest into a predictable, easy-to-understand course. Relevant chemistry classes I have taken: Undergraduate: - General Chemistry (I and II) - Organic Chemistry (I and II) - Quantitative Analysis - Physical Chemistry (Quantum Physics and Thermodynamics) - Inorganic Chemistry - Biochemistry (I and II) Graduate: - Basic Organic Reaction Mechanisms - Intro to Organic Synthesis - Spectroscopy of Organic Compounds - Stereochemistry and Conformational Analysis - Advanced Organic Reaction Mechanisms - Organometallic Chemistry (I and II) - Intro to Physical Chemistry
