How can a tutor assist you in conquering Chemistry?

Chemistry is the study of matter, its properties, and the interaction between various substances. It is an important subset of scientific knowledge that is useful to a number of future careers. Some professions that use the knowledge obtained in chemistry class regularly are doctors, researchers, product developers, and more. However, like many science classes, chemistry can be hard for some students to completely master. If you're currently taking a chemistry class and could use some extra help, one great way to get that help is by signing up to work with a private tutor. If you're interested in working with a tutor, Varsity Tutors can help you find an expert chemistry tutor in Palo Alto, CA, who can try to help you pursue all of your goals in the course.

When you sign up to work with a private tutor, you'll gain access to a professional educator who is an expert in the field of chemistry. That level of access means that you'll always have somebody to ask your questions to, and that you might be able to get answers to those questions right away. This could save you a lot of time that you would be spending searching for those answers yourself. Also, your tutor will work with you to first identify your weaknesses, and then will develop a targeted study plan designed to give you the tools you need to try to overcome them. These are just two of the many reasons why working with a tutor is a much more efficient process as opposed to working alone. For assistance in connecting with an experienced chemistry tutor who might help your efficiency in Palo Alto, contact one of our educational directors today.

Session Summaries by Chemistry Tutors

Chemistry Tutoring review by Courtney in Palo Alto, CA
The student and I covered NMR and IR absorption spectra for his exam this week. He learned how to draw chemical structures using NMR and IR spectra and identify the major absorption ranges. At the end of the lesson, the student was able to read spectra, draw structures, and had the major chemical shifts to memorize for his test. He also has additional practice problems to work on his own for practice.

Chemistry Tutoring review by John in Palo Alto, CA
Today we prepared for the student's exam for Tuesday by reviewing dehydrogenation of alcohols, including the ever prevalent carbonation rearrangements. We also went back over the E2 mechanism and the necessity of the leaving group and the hydrogen being extracted to be anti-coplanar. We also covered alkaline reactions.

Chemistry Tutoring review by Keith in Palo Alto, CA
We spent time on concepts that were covered before I started tutoring the student. We covered hybridization, sp3, sp2 and sp. We drew chair conformations and looked at axial and equatorial relationships and how they affect where a groups is cis of trans. Practiced drawing chair conformations and ring flipping to see how the equatorial and axial relationships change.

Chemistry Tutoring review by Kenneth in Palo Alto, CA
The student and I continued our work on his latest project. He had already completed the resume in class, so we spent time reviewing samples of letters of recommendations, discussing the tone and diction of the samples, as well as how to properly format a business letter. He began writing his letter during our session and we reviewed some word choices. He had a great attitude during the session. We agreed that he will try to have the essay done by Tuesday (our next meeting) so that I can proofread it.
