Chemistry can fun at any age! Remember making rock candy, a baking soda and vinegar volcano, and liquid smoke bombs? We become fascinated with chemistry at an early age. Once it is time to take courses in chemistry it becomes a bit harder and confusing. Learning about the elements and the periodic table are just the beginning. Understanding acids and bases, chemical bonding, atomic structures, and chemical bonding can send most teenagers into a frenzy. Once a student enters college, a frenzy can turn into down right panic. No matter whether the student is taking an introductory chemistry course or an upper level chemistry course, we have the qualified tutors that can help. Here are just some of the courses are tutors have helped students in through the years:
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.
