I have been helping science and pre-health students excel for more than two decades. I have spent most of the last 15 years managing the tutoring facility for the Chemistry department at one of the largest universities in the country and continue to work there to this day. I help thousands of students in person in large groups, in small groups, and one-on-one every semester and this site is my attempt to help far more. Chemistry and Physics are not as difficult as you think...I promise! Try one of my FREE or premium courses today! Happy Studying!
