"I have over twenty years of teaching and tutoring general and organic chemistry. I also am online certified and I am currently an MCAT General and Organic Chemistry Instructor for The Princeton Review.

While an "A" student in general chemistry, I actually struggled in organic chemistry! After barely passing organic I with a C. My first test in organic II, I actually made a score of 13/100! That is not a typo! Afterwards, I was very discouraged at the fact that I may not be able to pursue my career as a chemical engineer because I was not going to be able to pass this class.

After 30 minutes, I felt comfortable about the exam but at the same time still unsure. Nevertheless, I turned in the exam.

The third test and final exam were A's as well.

After doing the impossible, I changed my major from chemical engineering to chemistry so that one day I could obtain my PhD in organic chemistry so that I could teach students the secrets to learning organic chemistry! That is why I love to teach the subject and that is why I love to tutor students. I am not one of the those individuals who act as if those who don't quite understand organic will never get it. I know the struggles and pain associated with learning those organic concepts. I want to help students see organic chemistry as a fun course. My teaching method is one of a" less...
