Award-Winning Chemistry Tutors in Washington, DC
Usha "...After working for three years in Trinidad both in the public and private sectors I migrated to the United States in June 2013. I am currently awaiting a spot in residency, hopefully at the end of June 2015. It was a natural choice for me to spend the extra time immersed in my second love; teaching..."

Jonah "... I have over ten years of tutoring experience, working with students anywhere on the spectrum from kindergarten to graduate school, with a particular focus on high school. I enjoy tutoring a range of subjects, but particularly Math, Science, Economics, and Foreign Languages. Whatever the subject, I am a proponent of the "Teach a man to fish..." approach: rather than just focusing on giving my students the answer, I enjoy helping them understand how to think about the concepts..."
Kelvin "I know that I am a great tutor because of the success of my students. I enjoy the look on their faces when they are able to grasp and then master concepts which they never thought they would ever be able to understand. I really try meet students where they are at and then break concepts down into simplified items and rhetoric that they can easily follow..."
Jarvis "...Since my graduation, I have regularly tutored different mathematics and science courses such as Physics, Geometry, Algebra I and II, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus. I especially enjoy using guided practice to help others understand a little more about the material and its implications for the real world. I believe that I'm a good tutor because I understand from experience what it's like to not have a natural affinity for mathematics..."
Mrunali "Though I was a Biology and Mathematics Joint Major at McGill University in Montreal, my variety of extracurricular experience formatted and solidified my interest in education. My work with BrainReach, in which neuroscience students create and present lessons to elementary school students in high need schools, especially contributed to my passion for education. I have tutored and/or taught a variety of ages from 4-21, as well as a variety of subjects including all sorts of Mathematics, Sciences, and Test Preparation..."

Matt "...During my college career I took a large variety of science and math classes such as: Immunology, Microbiology, Organic Chemistry, Environmental Sciences, Physics, Genetics, Algebra, and Calculus. Over the last 4 years I have coached Varsity Football and Lacrosse at a local high school (Freedom High School) while attending GMU as a full time student. Being a student and coach requires that you be organized, dedicated, and pay attention to detail. Additionally, it teaches you time management, as well as how to be a leader and to set goals for yourself and those around you..."
Daphne "...I am currently working at the NIH. I have experience tutoring college, high school, and middle school students. During tutoring sessions I like to pinpoint where the problem areas are and begin by working with students on the fundamentals..."
Timothy "...The mix of these two disciplines refined my critical thinking skills, and importantly honed my ability to explain difficult topics in an easy-to-digest way. While at Georgetown I tutored underclassmen in Gen Chem as well as the dreaded Orgo. In addition to answering questions during these tutoring sessions I also tried to give students tips on how to study and ultimately ace a specific class (it definitely helped having been through the wringer myself)..."
Padraic "...I spent my undergraduate career at Virginia Tech, double majoring in Biomedical Engineering and Spanish while also obtaining a minor in Mathematics. I first began tutoring in my junior year of high school, helping younger students with introductory math courses such as Geometry and Algebra before moving on to tutor Precalculus and Trigonometry in my senior year. Throughout that time I was also part of a club that tutored younger students in Spanish..."
