Experienced Organic Chemistry Tutor

Tutor Information


Chemistry is an overwhelming and frustrating subject for many students. I specialize in breaking down concepts and explaining them in an understandable way. Recognizing that everyone does not learn a subject in the same manner, I constantly adapt my teaching style to meet the individual needs of my students. My role as a tutor is to help my students gain the self-confidence they need to learn the material and attain their educational goals. I have several years of tutoring experience in Organic Chemistry. My students have ranged from science majors to business majors. Many have plans to attend medical or veterinary school. Quite a number have been in nursing or health science programs. As a graduate student, I was a teaching assistant for General Chemistry, undergraduate Organic Chemistry lab, and advanced Organic Chemistry lab. During my years of undergraduate and graduate research, as well as my time spent as a postdoctoral researcher and research scientist, I supervised undergraduates starting their own research careers. I want to be a beneficial resource for my students, and I welcome any materials or suggestions they may have. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule an appointment. I will always give a prompt reply to any inquiry.

Kimberly was very pleasant to work with.

I needed insight into the scientific field, and she took the time, to reinforce the concepts that I was working on, and provided me with very valuable feedback. Thank you very much Kimberly.
