I love tutoring students in organic chemistry. I emphasize learning how to think and using basic chemical concepts to solve a problem. I focus on mechanisms to teach reactions and I generally shy away from memorization. I enjoy helping students learn the art of synthesis. It is a lot like a sophisticated game of tinker toys. If you approach it like that, it can be enjoyable.
While I am mainly focused on students in undergraduate school, I am glad to help students in advanced or graduate level courses. I also help students with the organic chemistry portion of the MCAT.
I've been teaching college chemistry since 2002 and specialize in Organic Chemistry and Advanced Organic Chemistry and Synthesis. I have a B.S. in chemistry from NYU and currently pursuing my PhD. in Organic Chemistry at NYU.
