"Hi I'm Omar!

I always say "learning is fun, school is not." Organic chemistry is one of the most challenging years in any student's college experience. Over the last six years, I have helped hundreds of students improved their intuition for organic chemistry, their confidence in taking exams, and their overall grades. I'd love to do the same for you.

"Hi I'm Omar!

I always say "learning is fun, school is not." Organic chemistry is one of the most challenging years in any student's college experience. Over the last six years, I have helped hundreds of students improved their intuition for organic chemistry, their confidence in taking exams, and their overall grades. I'd love to do the same for you.

Some of my qualifications:

- B.S. from Stony Brook University in Biochemistry and Mathematics

- Head TA for Honors Organic Chemistry at Stony Brook for two years

- Tutored Organic Chemistry for over 6 years now

- Two years of research experience in a chemical biology lab synthesizing antibiotics

- Three years of professional experience as a curriculum writer and a college advisor to students from underrepresented backgrounds.

- Worked at public and private universities as well as educational nonprofits.

- Almost a year of online teaching experience (not exactly by choice lol)

- Every summer, I run a summer program for pre-health first year and sophomore students. I've been working with pre-health students my entire career.

Tutoring Style:

My tutoring style is extremely flexible to your interests. I use analogies, real life examples, and stories to develop your orgo intuition. I connect organic chemistry to what you already know and like. As with any organic chemistry, I like to draw a lot and talk with you through every step. Visual, verbal and audial learners love me. I'm also a patient, friendly and funny guy so a tutoring session with me is never too intense. I would rather encourage you and motivate you to be your best self. There is no such thing as a bad question. While the majority of our time will be on organic chemistry, I'm happy to give advice on getting research lab experience, picking smart electives, or any other related college questions.

Finally, I believe the best tutors get fired because they've empowered their students into independence. Here's to hoping you fire me soon!" less...
