Teaching since:

I have an M.S. in organic chemistry and have been tutoring chemistry full time for the past five years since graduation. I've helped students locally at nearly every college in Western Mass, and I have thousands of hours experience tutoring online for students across the United States and world, including at UPenn, Stanford, Columbia, Wellesley and many others.

Organic chemistry is unique in the way that first principles build on each other throughout the course. I am an expert at breaking O-Chem down into fundamental concepts so that you can spend less time memorizing, and more time understanding. I can also identify various tips and tricks along the way that Professors seem to keep secret!

I own all the common organic textbooks and I can work with you with whatever book you use. I also can give you various problem sets if you want more practice.

Matt is the reason I got an A in Organic Chemistry II. He is very patient and explains concepts very clearly. I found him to be an extremely approachable tutor, always willing to teach and reteach any topic I needed help with. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an organic chemistry tutor - he is the best!

Matt tutored me for both Organic Chemistry I and II. His lessons were incredibly effective. My Organic Chemistry professor is known as a very challenging Orgo professor at my school and any difficult concepts and questions that I would bring to Matt, he researched efficiently, and discussed with me at length until I understood the topics. He took the time to meet with me when it was good for my schedule, even if it was at inconvenient hours like late evening during the weekends, etc. Whether it was working at difficult practice problems my professor would assign, practice test questions, textbook problems, or simply deciphering the terminology of Organic Chemistry, Matt was a huge help and helped me develop my passion for Organic Chemistry!

Matthew is a extremely patient and knowledgeable teacher. He knew exactly what to stress from class and the material that would be the most relevant for exams. His additional practice problems were very helpful and was he willing to go through material as many times as I needed.
