I enjoy having Fiona as a tutor for both chemistry and geometry. She is kind and makes the material easier to understand. Also, she is patient and takes her time in explaining the concepts to me, step by step. I love how she types some parts of the problems in the chat box. ~Genesis C.

Private Chemistry Teacher

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.

Colin is a wonderful instructor. I am so pleased with how much my daughter has learned and how much confidence she has gained. He is quick to respond to any questions.
Larissa
Colin is a fabulous teacher. He worked with my children as they prepared for their AP Calculus exam a few years back, and we enlisted his tutorage as my son prepared for his Calculus 3 exam this year.
Colin knows his material. He is patient and ensures the student is keeping pace with him as he explains the methodology. He takes the time necessary to ensure the student knows the material and is able to follow the explanations. As anyone who has studied math knows, you can't rush the process. Each step is a crucial foundation for the next.
Thank you Colin!

Chemistry is both fun and fascinating, which is lucky because it's a really important prerequisite. I've completed four semesters of Chemistry at Harvard as part of the Pre-Med curriculum - General Chem I & II, Organic Chemistry, and Biochemistry.

About Simeon

The most important attributes of any teacher are empathy and patience. I currently attend Harvard University and work as a professional writer and tutor. I've lived all over the United States, although I grew up in Scotland of all places. My scores on the SAT and ACT were perfect (1600 and 36 re

Words cannot express how awesome Simeon is....but here is an attempt. As parents, my wife and I cannot say enough great things about Simeon. Our child was preparing for his second attempt at the SAT's. Our child has a 4.0 GPA but did not do as well as he would have liked on the SAT's his first time. Our son was hesitant at first to work with a tutor since he thought he could prepare on his own and improve his score but as parents, we decided he needed outside help. That's when we found Simeon. Our son not only increased his SAT scores by almost 100 points in a very short window, but he extremely enjoyed his time with Simeon. Now that he and Simeon no longer meet on a weekly basis our son misses his time with Simeon. Simeon is extremely intelligent and has a way of explaining the concepts in a manner that anyone can understand. Simeon truly cares about the students he works with. We have another child entering high school next year and you better believe if he needs any tutoring Simeon will be getting a call.
Thelma A.
Very intellectual and patient ... Cares and wanted to help .
Sadie
Simeon has been an absolutely invaluable resource for my SAT prep. His encouragement is appropriately supplemented by challenging material and (appropriately) challenging expectations. He manages to make studying for the SAT fun rather than a laborious task and I could not recommend him more.

Dr. Nupur is the best teacher ever, we feel lucky to have found her at takelessons.

Her background is impeccable and in addition, she is a teacher who cares. She cared about my daughter, her progress (high school, chemistry) and well-being. My daughter's progress in less than 1 month was amazing: she went from 'we're a bit concerned for your grade' to the point she was helping others in class.

Dr. Nupur is the kind of teacher you wish your kids to have. I recommend her highly.

"Mr. Colin is an excellent tutor! He is the first tutor of many from whose teaching my AP Chemistry grades improved drastically. He is very easy going and also easy to talk to. If you don't understand something, he will try to explain it in as many ways possible; just make sure to stop and let him know that you didn't understand the concept. I am very satisfied with his teaching style and therefore plan to have more lessons with Mr. Colin in college chemistry classes. I would 100% recommend him to anyone!"

Chemistry is the branch of science that focuses on the study of matter, particularly its composition, structure, properties, and propensity to change through interaction with other substances. Chemistry's broken down into five branches: analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, and biochemistry. Each of these branches is equally important in understanding what everything in the universe is made of, why these things have the properties they have, and predicting how they'll react with each other. 

This might sound abstract, but chemistry's used to develop medicines, solve crimes, filter air, produce energy, grow viable crops, protect the environment, and to engineer chemicals that we use every day. Chemistry's used to understand what chemicals might be beneficial and which ones might be potentially harmful. It's used to make non-stick frying pans and the ovens we use for cooking. Chemistry's everywhere you look. 

Why Seek Chemistry Help?

You might think chemistry's only important if you're planning to become a pharmacist, chemical engineer, or some other profession that wears a white lab coat to work, but the truth is everyone's a chemist on some level. How can this be? Everything around us — even our bodies — are made up of chemicals, compounds, and matter. Everything in the world, including the world, is made up of elements on the period table, and we use chemistry every single day.

Chemistry's not only integral to the development of medicines, nuclear energy, and household products, it's necessary for understanding nutrition and agriculture, cooking, product development, printing, art, and more. The more thorough understanding you have of chemistry, the more thoroughly you'll understand how everything in the universe works. No matter what industry you plan to work in, having a solid foundation in chemistry is likely to help you achieve success. 

The Best Way to Learn Chemistry and What You'll Study in Lessons

Sure, you can find plenty of free chemistry classes and study guides online, but the best way to learn chemistry is by studying with a private chemistry tutor. In private lessons, you'll receive your teacher's undivided attention and the kind of personalized instruction that simply isn't available in a larger class setting. With immediate feedback, you'll overcome personal challenges and improve quickly. 

Plus, every private lesson is different. Teachers customize each course and syllabus with the student's goals, interests, existing knowledge, and preferred learning styles in mind. For example, chemistry classes for adults differ in terms of content and teaching methods from chemistry lessons for children. Your teacher will keep you motivated and interested, while you study chemistry at a pace that's comfortable for you. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Chemistry

Beginner chemistry tutoring typically coincides with the first year of high school-level chemistry or the first semester of a college-level introductory course. In these lessons, your chemistry teacher will introduce you to the fundamental topics that'll help you build a solid foundation for moving onto more advanced topics in chemistry. Your teacher might cover the following subjects:

  • Reading the Periodic Table 
  • Understanding the language of chemistry and organization of matter
  • Examining the phases of matter
  • Introduction to chemical equations and reactions

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Chemistry

Intermediate chemistry tutoring typically coincides with the syllabus of a second-year high school chemistry course or the second semester of a college-level introductory course. In these lessons, you'll build upon your basic chemistry knowledge to cover slightly more advanced topics in chemistry. Your teacher might choose to cover the following topics:

  • Understanding solutions and the behavior of solutions
  • In-depth study of chemical reactions
  • Introduction to organic and carbon compounds
  • Introduction to nuclear chemistry

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Chemistry

Advanced chemistry tutoring is designed for students studying at the college or university level. In these courses, you'll have the opportunity to get additional help and resources to excel in college-level chemistry courses. Topics included will depend on the student's goals and interests, but your teacher might choose to cover the following subjects:

  • Analytical chemistry
  • Inorganic, organic, and biochemistry
  • Electrochemistry and thermochemistry 
  • Applying calculus, probability, and statistics to chemistry

How to Find a Chemistry Tutor Near You

Working with a private chemistry teacher will help you with your chemistry homework, improve your confidence in tests, and boost your grades. Luckily, TakeLessons makes finding a private tutor easy. With a quick search, you'll be directed to a long list of tutors who offer lessons online and in-person to students of all ages and abilities. Before choosing a teacher, we recommend reading through several profiles and reviews left by other chemistry students. 

The price of chemistry classes varies, but most teachers base their rates on the length and frequency of lessons. With so many tutors to choose from, you'll have no trouble finding someone who fits your budget and schedule. Plus, you'll find that investing in private lessons pays off fast, as you start grasping all the chemistry concepts with which you previously struggled after just a few lessons.
