We are fascinated by chemistry at an early age when we learn how to make an erupting volcano by mixing vinegar and baking soda. For many students this fascination will either wear-off or create a new passion for science once they take their first high school chemistry class. Students taking chemistry for the first time will learn about the periodic table, chemical bonding, molecular structures, chemical equilibrium, and much more. However, if your student is not fascinated by chemistry and they need help to understand the concepts, complete lab assignments, or prepare for test, then we can help. In fact, we have qualified professional tutors that can tutor in any level of chemistry course from high school through college. Tutors are available for the following subject areas:
Biochemistry - Topics include: molecular, cellular, and organismal chemical activities. Metabolic pathways and enzymology, biochemical structures and sequences, and genome databases are included.
Chemical Engineering - Chemical engineering basically is applied chemistry. It is the branch of engineering concerned with the design, construction, and operation of machines and plants that perform chemical reactions to solve practical problems or make useful products.
Inorganic Chemistry - Topics include: molecular structure, molecular shape and symmetry, structure of solids, d-metal complexes, oxidation and reduction, and acids and bases.
Organic Chemistry - Focuses on relationships between molecular structure and chemical reactivity, and stresses the development of sophisticated problem-solving skills in the context of organic reaction mechanisms and multi-step synthesis. Homolytic and heterolytic substitution, elimination, oxidation and reduction reactions; topics in stereochemistry and spectroscopy.
Principles of Chemistry I- Topics include: atomic structure; thermochemistry; periodicity, bonding and molecular structure; intermolecular forces; properties of solids; liquids, gases and solutions.
Principle of Chemistry II – Topics include: Thermodynamics, chemical equilibrium; acid/base chemistry; oxidation and reduction; kinetics; spectros-copy; introduction to nuclear, organic, inorganic, and polymer chemistry.
Physical Chemistry I – Topics include: States of matter. Kinetic theory of gases. Transport phenomena. Chemical thermodynamics and its application to chemical systems. Equilibrium. Ionic solutions and electrochemistry. Introduction to chemical kinetics.
Physical Chemistry II – Topics include: chemical kinetics and catalysis. Introductory quantum chemistry. Spectroscopy. Statistical thermodynamics.
When the fascination for basic chemistry turns into a desire to learn more, but the concepts are hard to grasp, it is time to get the help of a professional tutor. Our chemistry tutors can turn panic into passion. All of the chemistry tutors we provide will hold a degree in the area of study the student is learning (biochemistry, organic chemistry, basic chemistry, etc). Most of our tutors hold master’s degrees and PhD’s. They are ready to help.
High School Tutors
Is your high school student college bound? Does every grade count towards a scholarship or a college application? As soon as your student begins high school the pressure is on. Many students find the transition into high school rough. When every grade counts towards a scholarship or college acceptance, starting high school on the right foot and staying on solid ground can be a struggle for many students. A tutor well versed in working with high school students understands these students are juggling a lot and they have ways to help the student stay focused, organized, well-prepared, and achieve their academic goals. A simple call to hire a tutor now can make all the difference later. Contact us today to learn more.
