About Organic Chemistry
Organic chemistry is the study of the structure, properties, composition, reactions, and preparation of carbon-containing compounds, which include not only hydrocarbons but also compounds with any number of other elements, including hydrogen (most compounds contain at least one carbon–hydrogen bond), nitrogen, oxygen, halogens, phosphorus, silicon, and sulfur. This branch of chemistry was originally limited to compounds produced by living organisms but has been broadened to include human-made substances such as plastics. The range of application of organic compounds is enormous and also includes, but is not limited to, pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals, food, explosives, paints, and cosmetics.
ScotI have a BA in Liberal Arts/Pre-Med from the University of St. Thomas in Houston and then studied medicine at the Rice University School of Medicine. At Rice, I worked as a lab technician at the cancer research and biomedical sciences lab, where I was involved in prostate cancer research. Currently, I'm tutoring, performing medical assistant work, and looking for my residency. I love to learn, and I love to teach. I try to help students learn to give attention to the details through challenge and encouragement. I let students know what they're good at and how they can get better. I believe this builds pride and determination in students, giving them the drive to love learning like I do. When students develop the discipline to seek out the success of academic achievement, their ability to discriminate and perceive details that lead to better understanding of the right answer becomes innate. I'm available to teach chemistry, anatomy and physiology, biology, physics, organic chemistry, microbiology, bio stats, calculus, algebra, elementary math, trigonometry, precalculus, statistics, and Spanish. In my free time, I enjoy running, medical novels, poetry and literature, soccer, and the guitar.

NicoleI'm attending Vanderbilt University for my bachelor's degree in chemical engineering. I'm working towards a minor in biological sciences. I love science and math topics, and my favorites are trigonometry, calculus, economics, and chemistry. I can tutor students in calculus, economics, statistics, trigonometry, thermodynamics, thermochemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, physics, adult literacy, biology, business, and a wide array of other topics. I can also help students prepare for the ACT, AP exams, PSAT, and other standardized admissions and assessment tests. As a tutor, I prioritize helping students understand the fundamental concepts rather than rote memorization because I want students to hone their critical thinking and problem-solving skills to be successful now and in the future. I'm aware that everybody learns differently, so I accommodate my approach to match the needs and learning style of each student I work with. In each session, I will explain a topic, provide practice problems, and let the student work through them to show that they have learned the topic. I've also relate concepts to the real world so that they are easier to understand and easier to retain. Overall, I'm dedicated to helping students reach their goals. In my free time, I enjoy reading, fishing, listening to music, and cats.

ChristopherMy love for science and math, especially chemistry as it relates to medicine, comes through in the way that I teach and tutor students. I want my students to develop confidence in thinking critically, and so I motivate them while we work together to realize their academic dreams. I've taught general and organic chemistry courses for the last three school years as an adjunct instructor. My feedback from the students show that my methods of teaching were successful and that students enjoyed my classes. Students felt that I gave them adequate attention and worked to help them understand topics, trying new explanations and demonstrating real-world applications until students demonstrated comprehension. I've tutored everyone ranging from children to students in grad school in mathematics and chemistry. From what I've learned in this experience, Â helping a student become competent in their ability to learn is of the utmost importance. I strive to develop a true understanding in my students, and not just the ability to regurgitate information. I'm available to tutor science and math from middle school through college, including AP chemistry, organic chem, and algebra. I love to read, research, and teach, and I look forward to working with you.
