My name is Leonel but you can call me, Leo! I am a chemistry Tutor and have been for 9+ years. I am currenlty doing a PhD in Organic Chemistry at Texas A&M University and I love to teach and mentor students in chemistry or those in related fileds.
On top of my enthisiasm to helps students succeed, I offer a service that helps students gain confidence, undestanding, and tackle challenging problems. I believe every students deserves a great mentor and I would be honored to be that for you.
I love tutoring chemistry because when I was a student in college, I struggled a lot and it wasn't until I was introduced to a tutor where I fell in love with helping students. I consider myself an ultimate resource for students because I have the ability to provide great resources along with my tutoring experience. The best part of this job is seeing students walk in with no confidence and seeing them leave excited and eager for more learning. You cant top that!
