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.

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.
