About this tutor

Have been tutoring and teaching organic chemistry at the college level for 4 years. Working as a college adjunct professor, teaching aide, supplemental instructor, and lab instructor for Orgo 1,2 and spectroscopic chemistry. Currently in school to complete my masters in organic chemistry while teaching a recession class in organic chemistry 1 and 2, 52 students currently in this class. 

As a teacher, I enjoy making complicated subjects easy to understand focusing on the concepts needed for solution-based thinking and not rout memorization. Using the first principle method -used by the notable Elon Musk- inherently makes difficult subjects more manageable by breaking things down to their core truths and attacking the problem at individual parts to solve the whole. 

Also working in the restaurant business for most of my life, I have developed a natural skill for communication allowing me to connecting with my students in a way that can be difficult in today's online atmosphere.

  • Sean Pruneau

    He made difficult subjects easy to understand and his communication skills were strong. He has a natural tendency to understand how much of the subject I was learning and at what speed. Therefore, he did not rush on subjects I was struggling with.

  • Matt Hughes

    Tom worked with me throughout the course and really helped me nail down the core concepts of organic chemistry. He also was able to take the more difficult subjects and break them down, step by step, making them much easier to understand. Could not recommend Tom enough as an organic chemistry tutor!



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Working with new students is about two things to me.

1. Understanding their needs as a student and their best innate learning pathway be it through clear subject definitions, problem-based classes with in-depth solution explanation, or someone who simply needs to be there to answer questions and help with studying techniques.

2. Setting goals to get value out of our tutoring sessions. I do not want to waste anyone's time and expect students to want to succeed at their desired subject and we do this by defining sucess and creating a plan to get there.
