I am Professor Cain. I teach General Chemistry at a local University, as well as teach AP Chemistry in a high school. I really enjoy helping people to understand difficult concepts and I care about the growth of my clients.
I teach General Chemistry at Concordia University, as well as AP Chemistry at Westminster High School. I have been teaching Chemistry now for over 25 years.
My rate is $50 per hour online, $80 in person, or $65 if we meet halfway somewhere.
Typically, clients say that the material we accomplish in one hour, would have taken them the whole weekend to do alone.
