Why did you become a tutor?
Chevron's on the balcony tutoring helped me get through organic chemistry, so I want to pass on what I learned and help others overcome the similar struggles I faced.

What is your favorite thing about the subject in which you tutor?
In organic chemistry, I like how multi step synthesis problems are like a puzzle, in which we have to fit together various simpler reactions to reach the answer.

What is the best study tip you have for a student taking one of the courses you tutor?
Skim over the textbook readings before class to get an idea of what to expect during lecture and then thoroughly do the reading after class to better understand and remember the material.
