Dr. Alan was super helpful and patient. He knows organic chemistry very well and can explain the material in a way that anyone can understand.

I was getting really discouraged with MCAT studying and practice, so I decided to contact Dr. Alan.
He is extremely knowledgeable in general chemistry, organic chemistry and biochem. He also knows how the MCAT exam is designed and written. He is a great source of information.
Furthermore, he prioritizes making sure his students understand why certain answers are wrong or right. He is very detail oriented and really wants his students to understand the material.
Dr. Alan tutored me online, and shared his screen with me while working out chemical reactions and problems. He then saved all of that work and emailed it to me, so I could refer to it later.
Dr. Alan definitely tries to provide his students with the resources to succeed. He sends his students extra practice as well as power points and tutorials on information that he knows is tested on the MCAT.
I am very glad I contacted Dr. Alan, because he is a very dedicated caring teacher, and he really wants his students to do well. I would recommend him to anyone who needs some guidance on the MCAT!

I took tutorials on general chemistry with Dr. Alan for one term. He always went extra miles to make sure that I was prepared for my tutorial sessions by sending me enrichment materials on topics that were covered in my class beforehand. He accommodated my learning style and was able to provide supplemental lectures as I requested, which I appreciate tremendously. He was also always very prompt in responding to my emails. He doesn't always provide direct answers when you ask questions, but provides guidance in a way that makes you think -I believe this is essential in learning. I would recommend tutorials with Dr. Alan if you are keen on learning and truly want to comprehend your subjects of interest well.
As a bioengineer, chemistry is a cornerstone for so much of what I do on a daily basis. Whether you need help on electron configurations, balancing oxidation states, ionic equilibria or anything in between, I've got you covered. It's easy to understand chemistry when you are learning it from an enthusiastic teacher with a deep understanding of the concepts, and that is precisely what I strive to be.
Hello there! My name is Colin, and I have five years of experience tutoring math and science. I am a PhD student in the UC Berkeley-UC San Fransisco joint bioengineering program. My strong background in STEM qualifies me to tutor math and science up through lower-division college courses. Aside from my academic qualifications, I believe that it is my genuine passion for math and science that makes me an effective tutor for students of all backgrounds.
As a tutor, my goal is not to impress students with how much I know. Rather, my goal is to show my students how easily math and science concepts can come to them when they are presented the material in a straightforward way. The late physicist, Richard Feynman, posited that the ability to explain complicated ideas in a simple manner is the true mark of understanding. I agree with this a
ssertion, and I make it my goal each tutoring session to explain even the most complex phenomena in a simple way, so that my student will come away from the lesson invariably understanding it. Additionally, I emphasize a strong understanding of the fundamentals, because both math and science are heavily inductive disciplines; many of the theorems and laws are founded on other, more fundamental principles. I have personally experienced the discouragement of trying to learn material that is beyond my preparedness level, and so I can empathize with students who are in that boat. Fortunately, I have learned that the remedy is always a return to, and a strengthening of the basics. That is the approach I take with students who find themselves struggling in a course.
My online teaching platform is a “black board” drawing program that my students can follow along with as I explain concepts and solve problems. I simply share my screen with them during the session, and at the end, I take a screenshot of the notes and email it to my students for their reference. I hope this brief explanation of my qualifications and teaching style has provided a clear image of what you can expect from me as your tutor. I am eager to hear from you and help you succeed in your academic goals!

I've been teaching chemistry for twenty years and my students have gone from no knowlegde at all to grasp the basic. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to use symbols, moles and equations to solve stoichiometry problems and as time goes on you'll be able to solve more complex problems about gases and thermodynamics. I specialize in stoichiometry, typically I use any chemistry book and have the following tools available for your lessons:Internet, cd's,calculator, and videos, . I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!
My mission is to teach you the way you can understand this new knowledge and apply it
I am an Honors NYU major with a double major in chemistry and psychology. I have been tutoring chemistry at all levels for over 5 years now with amazing results. Many of my students went form failing to B's and A's.
I love to see my students understand and master complex concepts after struggling at first. My approach centers around the student and practicing many, many problems. I also believe that mistakes and questions are essential to productive learning.
Education I was the Valedictorian of Lafayette High school class 2006. I also attended NYU and graduated Cum Laude with a double major in Chemistry and Psychology. In 2013 I founded Transformation Tutoring LLC , a company specializing in science and math tutoring.
Experience I have been working as a full time Chemistry and MCAT tutor for over 5 years now with incredible results. I has tutored students from the colleges of : Harvard, Cornell, NYU, LIU, St Johns, St Josephs, Hunter, Brooklyn, CCNY, Columbia, and online courses.
Passion I live and breathe tutoring. I love to see my students understand and master complex concepts after struggling at first. My approach centers around the student and practicing many, many problems. I believe that mistakes and questions are essential to productive learning.
Mayya is great tutor who really helps strengthen my understanding of organic chemistry. She clearly knows the material really well and does a great job at clarifying and teaching it. Our sessions are very productive, I always leave feeling much more confident about the class.
Currently teaching and tutored many students in Chemistry from High School to College level. I have brought many failing or just passing students to B+'s and A's. I myself took advanced Chemistry at UPenn, and also took AP Chemistry. In addition to reinforcing the fundamentals, and dissecting advanced material so it is more easily understood, my plan to initially is to examine my student's thought process, and then deconstruct their approach so it becomes more systematic and methodical.
Welcome students and parents: You may not know it yet, but stumbling upon my page may change your life for the better. With me, your immersion into the world of science and education may open up opportunities that may alter your children's future path.
I have tutored students at the junior/high school, and college levels. As a teaching assistance for undergraduates at the Ivy league, the Univ of Pennsylvania, I teach pupils to dissect problems and challenges into manageable components. This was my stepping stone into a professorial role. I am originally from NYC, and attended Stuyvesant, so I also help tutor students with the SSAT and SHSAT. Knowledge and understanding alone does not make a good educator, it is the ability to transmit such skills which is remarkable.
I have a Master's of Science of Biochemical Engineering from the
University of Pennsylvania, and a Bachelor's of Science in biomedical sciences from King's College, University of London.
Craig's teaching is quite impressive. I'm a math teacher myself, but when I caught moments of him teaching my daughter struggling in algebra 2, I thought his approach was better! His instruction is excellent and she is now doiing great in Algebra 2.
February 18, 2019
Craig has greatly helped my daughter struggling in chemistry! She now consistently achieves in the 90's. Without him, she would not have found an appreciation for chemistry and has now decided to sign up for AP Chem. His explanations are clear and easy to understand.
February 18, 2019
Craig is a marvelous tutor. For my twins, he brought up their MATH SAT 130 and 150 points respectively. With my middle schooler he has helped bring up her SSAT to the 94% (percentile) getting her into our top choice. He is thorough and meticulous tutor teaching them how to find and fix their own mistakes.
I make sure you learn what is going on with the concepts involved in the topics. Not only do I love chemistry, I enjoy teaching it and helping others get a grip of understanding on the subject. I welcome learners who want to see good grades on their chemistry homework and strive to gain confidence on the subject. Contact me if you would very much like that.
Hi! My name is Hector and I am currently working on a bachelor's degree in Neuroscience. I excel at Math and Chemistry, and I enjoy teaching the subjects as well! I'm very outgoing as well as patient and persistent when it comes to tutoring. I have tutoring history with Statistics, Stoichiometry, Algebra, Writing, English Literature, and a little bit of Drawing (a creative side of my abilities, along with Creative Writing). I tutor for both professional and personal growth!
I am easy to reach, and I welcome parents offering additional educational resources with open arms and an open mind! I look forward to your booking!
Hector is very helpful! In chemistry, he knew his information well and was eager in explaining things followed by checking to make sure we understood the lesson. He takes responsibility in teaching and has a very kind personality. I like to study with him.
October 17, 2017
His passion for the betterment of people and his ability to make complex topics so simplistic truly make him a devoted and effective tutor.
October 13, 2017
I've known Hector for a few years now, and I haven't met anyone as passionate when it comes to his work.
Hector puts forth 110% towards his work and students to ensure quality material. He is patient, and is more than happy to clarify any questions.
Not only does his passion lies within teaching, but he is continulusly striving to learn new things. He loves to analyze complex sciences and the world around him, and as an outcome he formulates fascinating theories. Not only is a great teacher, but a friend who truly inspires those around him.
Chemistry can be trying subject for many. With a bit a help anyone can learn Chemistry and get through it pain free! I have been tutoring Chemistry for several years. While I aim for comprehension over scores, grades typically improve with comprehension. In each tutoring session, you can choose to receive homework help, test preparation, or extra practice that I can supply.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from North Dakota State University in 2012. Since graduating, I have tutored various subjects with Varsity Tutors (online platform) and have tutored both in person and online for learners ranging from elementary age to adults working towards a Masters degree.
I serve as the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) NDSU section Counselor, a position I volunteered for in 2014, providing a link between college engineering students and the professional world. Other volunteer work includes teaching sessions at Expanding Your Horizons. This is an event to introduce middle school girls to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields.
Ashley strives to deliver the best learning environment possible working with each student individually on a case by case basis. You can really tell she wants you to succeed and is ready to accommodate most student's schedules. Ashley really tries hard to make things work and most importantly treats everyone with an upfront honesty, not often seen in today's society.
"Hector was easily the most friendly and helpful instructor I've had. He was very patient with me and was willing to explain everything in clear detail, st
ep by step. He was also very energetic when teaching, which made Chemistry a lot more enjoyable. He made sure I understood concepts before moving on, and respected my pace of learning. I would highly recommend Hector!"

"Yazmin was terrific! My daughter felt very comfortable working with her. Yazmin was confident with the chemistry content and very good at explaining and
re-teaching the material. I highly recommend Yazmin and are looking forward to working with her again."
"Irfan is an outstanding tutor that I highly recommend. In less than an hour, he had my son understanding the concepts of chemistry that were frustrating
him. Even though we were in different time zones, Irfan made sure to accommodate our schedule. While I originally had doubts about the effectiveness of web tutoring, I can honestly state that Irfan made it effective by using screenshare. Irfan also went out of his to share web links that would help my son with the chemistry issues they were working on. Again, I would highly recommend Irfan if you are looking for a chemistry tutor! We will be using him again I am sure!"
"Milka is really helpful!! Whether I understand the problems or not, I like it when she reviews them with me."
"Milka tutored me in chemistry and I ended up with an A! She was so patient and always willing to help. Even if I had a question about homework I could tex
t her and she would help me out. She even had to leave town and was willing to skype or facetime. You can tell that she loves what she does. I highly recommend her as a tutor!! It was more than about money for her!"
"Colin provided me with tutoring for chemistry, via FaceTime. Over the semester he was very flexible with my off-peak time schedules, and was EXTREMELY pat
ient to my questions. Using Colin for tutoring helped my grades and provided an overall great value. Thanks Colin!"
"Colin's tutoring inspires you to enthusiastically learn and think at a higher level, one which exceeds even your own expectation."
"Caring, Precise, Knowledgeable, Wise. Time extremely well spent with the Professor."
