I've taught a lot of chemistry. When in doubt, mole it out!
General chemistry is my forte... you know, the stuff you either learn in the class called "chemistry" in high school or maybe "general chemistry" in college. If you want to know why sodium pops, fizzles, and ignites as it skates across the surface of a beaker of water, then you're looking in the right place. BUT...If you're looking for an organic chemistry tutor, then I'm not your guy. Why? Because frankly, stereoisomers all look the same to me ;)
You finally found me: your one-stop shop for chemistry, physics, and generally-all-things-physical-science-related help!
Who I am: I am a veteran physics, chemistry, engineering, and tech-ed teacher at the Pittsburgh Science and Technology Academy. My Pennsylvania teaching certifications are in chemistry, physics, and technology education. I have been at the school since it opened its doors in 2009. Prior to teaching, I worked as a chemical engineer and a stock trader. I've performed on Broadway (yes THAT one in NYC), and I used to play the bassoon. I love to ski and play with my two children.
Why I am here: I mentioned that I was a chemical engineer by education... but now I'm a teacher?!?? Why would I forsake a much more profitable career for one in education? Because I love teaching :) In the years that I di
Why you should hire me: A book can teach you a lot of stuff, and if you are one of those few individuals who absorbs everything they see or read and become instant masters (think Neo learning Jiu Jitsu in the Matrix), then you don't need me, and really, you don't need anyone here. But if you're like most people, then some of the concepts might be a bit tricky and often a few helpful analogies and rephrasing of material is necessary. That's where I excel. If you struggle with concepts, I work to find ways to get the information into your mind in a way that might be more meaningful to you.
For example, I was teaching students about Newton's Third Law (action and reaction). I asked them if they had ever been driving down a highway and hit a bug. They answered yes, and then I asked them why the bug splattered instead of the windshield. Categorically, they gave me the incorrect answer of "well, the bug hit the windshield with more force, didn't it?" I didn't answer them, but instead I showed them a video clip of a drag race between a Lamborghini Aventador and a Bugatti Veyron. Both cars went 0-60 in under 3 seconds. Pretty impressive. I turned off the video and asked them the question about the bug again, and they seemed confused, so I nudged them a bit more. "How long did it take that Veyron to go from 0-60?" A student shouted out, "about 2.6 seconds!" Then I asked him, "and how long did it take that hovering insect to get from 0 to 60, which is how fast your car was going when you hit him?" Suddenly, light bulbs started to flicker... "that was instant, like milliseconds!" I smiled as others started weighing in. "Yeah, that bug went 0-60 in under a second, so its ACCELERATION was greater!" So I finally answered, "correct, the force of the bug hitting the windshield is EXACTLY the same (but in the other direction) as the force of the windshield hitting the bug. Using Newton's Second Law equation, F=ma, if the forces are equal, but the mass of the car is MUCH MUCH bigger than the mass of the bug, it's easy to see what happens...[huge differences in acceleration]. And that is what ultimately destroys the bug. It's like a phrase I once heard from a skydiver--it's not the fall that hurts. It's the sudden stop at the end that can kill ya."
I hope that example gives you insight into the type of tutor that I am. I hope to hear from you!
PS... you might think that my online rates don't reflect the standard discount that many other tutors here give their students. That is true. While I don't shun technology, I also understand its limitations. Both of my specialties (chemistry and physics) involve a lot of equations and drawings... these are easily conveyed in short time when face to face. But when having to draw on a camera and/or type equations with lots of subscripts and superscripts, a lot of time is wasted. I don't discourage online help outright, but I don't recommend it as an initial session. That is why my prices display only a modest discount.

It seems that his teaching style is leading students to their own conclusions by giving them hints and guidance along the way including physical examples and practice work. Mr. Hank also is an incredibly patient teacher/tutor. He will use as many approaches as necessary to make sure that you will understand a topic.
I would not hesitate to hire Mr. Hank as a tutor. If you need help in science or engineering, I guarantee that you will have a very rewarding experience with Hank.

I'm a Ph. D chemist trained in a prestigious US university, for more than 15 years teaching and tutoring in high school sciences/chemistry, college chemistry courses. Through one-on-one tutoring, the subjects will be presented in a way that caught interest, clarified difficult topics and led student(s) through complex areas, and put knowledge into context so that its relevance was apparent. The most important element of my tutoring is to encourage reasoned thinking and rational problem solving.
Through one-on-one and group tutoring, the subjects will be presented in a way that caught interest, clarified difficult topics and led student(s) through complex areas, and put knowledge into context so that its relevance was apparent.
As a chemistry educator, especially one who is tutoring at the high school and undergraduate levels, I will bring a lot of energy to my student(s). If I can't get excited about my subject, why should my student(s)? Another important element of my tutoring is encouraging reasoned thinking and rational problem solving, especially in developing logical arguments.

I majored in Biology at MIT, where I took several courses on general chemistry, organic chemistry, and biochemistry. I had gotten a 5 on AP Chemistry, and I have received 790 on the SAT Chemistry. I also had gotten close to a perfect score on the MCAT Physical Sciences (which includes chemistry). During high school, I also participated in Science Olympiad, where I frequently participated in chemistry events.
Because of the extensive background in chemistry, I am able to break down complex concepts for the younger students and am able to also help college students.
I also always carry around AP Chemistry, SAT Chemistry, or college chemistry practice problems (depending on the students' levels) so that the students can work on the practice problems during the lessons. I also provide them with additional resources and practice problems as needed.

All lessons are flexible and tailored to your needs and desires!
About me: I grew up in Denver, Colorado, later moved to Eugene, Oregon where I attended the University of Oregon and studied Human Physiology. After school I was lucky enough to join Teach for America where I taught middle school and high school Science in two of Chicago's most challenging schools. It was here that I fell in love with teaching. I find that being there for someone to discover their own hidden skills is deeply rewarding.
This year I was accepted to Medical School back home in Denver! I am thrilled to be able to move from the classroom to the hospital, but I will miss teaching very much. I look forward to meeting you and telling you more ab

Fundamentals of chemistry are very important especially when considering a career in healthcare and the sciences. In college I tutored students at the high school and college level (introduction/fundamentals of chemistry) so I can definitely assist you in making chemistry concepts very clear to you.
I have experience tutoring students from high school to college level. At different times in my life I acquired two bachelors degrees; one in music, the other in biochemistry. It is important for you to know that I take your education seriously but it can be interspersed with a little humor; not too much, but enough to keep things interesting.
In addition to helping students, I have worked as a professional freelance musician and as a research biochemist. Whether it be one on one or in a group setting, my experiences have taught me to be very patient, flex
