"Hello, my name is Heidi. I have taught as adjunct in the Community College. I have taught various chemistry courses including general chemistry and organic chemistry.

I hold the CRLA (College Reading and learning association) regular tutoring certificate.

I graduated with a first class bachelor's degree in Chemistry with honors from the University of Liverpool, England. During my degree I spent a year working in industry for Zeneca. During this year I gained practical experience in Ion exchange chemistry.

After graduating I gained another years experience in industry concentrating on the field of combinatorial chemistry. I became a mentor for junior team members.

I then returned to my studies and was awarded a PhD in medicinal chemistry from the University of Bath in England. My field of expertise was sugar chemistry. During my 4-year course, I tutored many undergraduates in lab work.

I have post doctoral research experience in Cancer research from Arizona State University.

I have chosen to exclusively tutor chemistry as I have a lot of experience in the subject.

My strength lies in the ability to explain organic chemistry into simple language. This includes first and second semester college organic chemistry. I studied inorganic, physical and organic chemistry for 6 semesters in England. I specialized in organic chemistry in my final year.

I am also confident in explaining general chemistry both at high school and college level. Example of topics that I cover are stoichiometry, gas laws, thermodynamics, chemical bonding and VSPER theory, acid/base chemistry, kinetics, equilibrium etc.

My style changes with each individual student. As I was educated in England, a very often have different methods of working out calculations which students find much more simple.

Many students get very confused by stoichiometry. This is an extremely important concept and if a student is confused by this topic they will continue to struggle with chemistry. Most of my students will understand stoichiometry w" less...
