Award-Winning Organic Chemistry Tutors in Washington, DC
Justin "... Most of my students have been college students in need of help with General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry. My teaching style centers on explaining concepts and making students think there way through problems.

Jennifer "... However, my day is never complete until I can share my knowledge with fellow students and scientists. In my experience, the best way to teach math and science is to show students real world examples they can appreciate at any age. By the end of our tutoring sessions, I don't want my students to know rote material; I try to make sure they are able to tell me why it is important and how to teach the material right back to me..."

Conklin "... My area of interest is Genetics, and I hope to eventually receive my PhD in Bioinformatics. I believe that learning is all about asking questions. The most important skill we can develop as students and people is to realize the things that we do not know and find ways to ask questions about them. Whatever these things are, they are most certainly different for everyone, and challenging them and tackling them head on is a sure fire way to grow intellectually..."

Kevin "I love helping anyone gain a better understanding in any subject in a way that makes sense to them, building upon a strong background so that he or she can tackle any type of problem in that subject. I'm originally from west Texas, where the schools are not the best, so I can easily understand and empathize with any type of course or school difficulty. I come from a fairly large family, having eight brothers and sisters, and because so, I feel I always do my best to put others ahead of myself and can get along with a wide range of different personalities..."

Arafat "...I tutored various subjects all four years in college, specializing in all Sciences and Spanish. In my experience tutoring these subjects, my goal has always been to explain to my students why you get to your answers rather than how you get there. For each student I tutor, I do my best to tailor my planning and strategies based on each student because everyone's needs are different from one another..."
