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.

About Craig W.

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.

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.

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.

Off to an amazing start with Craig. We started just prior to a big Chem mid-term and were blown away by the commitment he made to getting our son prepared for it. Looking forward to doing much more with Craig!

Craig has been tutoring 2 of my children, one a junior prepping for the SAT and the other a freshman needing help with Bio and math. From the feedback I get, my children love him. He is patient, and systematic and methodical and from the brief glimpses I get, he is very interactive and genuinely nurtures a love of science in them

Craig has been tutoring our daughter on the SAT Math and we have seen a boost in her confidence and her performance. He has been able to decisively shown her how to tackle questions she would normally struggle with.

Craig is a phenomenal tutor. I struggled with college chemistry and he was thorough and patient in his explanation ensuring the strength of my fundamentals before explaining the introducing the more difficult topics. He even has now began tutoring my brother in SAT math and my brother has commented how Craig has been able to propel his approach to math. Craig is a fantastic tutor!
