Online Organic Chemistry Tutoring

Looking for an experienced online organic chemistry tutor? Master Organic Chemistry recommends Matt Pierce and Robin Higgins.


Matt Pierce [Eastern Time Zone]

Matt-Pierce Teaching organic chemistry has been a passion of mine for the past six years. I’m a full time independent chemistry tutor, both worldwide via Skype and locally in Western Massachusetts. I have an M.S. in computational organic chemistry from Oregon State University and I’m an alumnus of UMass Amherst. I’m a published author with over six years of teaching and tutoring experience. Organic chemistry is unique in the way that first principles build on each other throughout the course. I am an expert at breaking chemistry down into fundamental concepts so that students I work with can spend less time memorizing, and more time understanding. Nobody can make organic chemistry “easy” or provide a magic bullet to get you an “A” but I can equip you with the tools to make it possible. I’ve helped hundreds of students over the years. Here are a couple of nice things people have written about me:

Last week a student who just completed a very challenging, competitively scaled Organic II class texted this to me: “Hey man, just wanted to let you know I pulled off an B+ in o-chem. I owe it all to you. I couldn’t have done it without you. You are anamazing teacher. I’ll recommend you to all my friends.”

A review a student wrote for me on a tutoring website: “In the past I have had several chemistry tutors but none have helped me as much as Matthew did. He knew all the material on the spot and taught the way a teacher would. He broke down the problems into a manageable way therefore understanding the concept was enjoyable and not strictly memorization.”

Robin Higgins [Pacific Time Zone]

I am a full time tutor who loves her job! I have a master’s degree in organic chemistry from UCLA, and worked as a teaching assistant there for two years. I also have over ten years of tutoring experience and would be happy to help you learn! One of the most crucial parts of teaching is helping students understand the root of the problem. I do not advance the material until I am positive that my students understand the basics. If a student is confused with problems that involve the ideal gas law, for example, I ask probing questions in an effort to determine whether or not the confusion stems from a more fundamental misunderstanding, such as a difficulty grasping unit conversion.


“Robin was extremely concerned with student learning and wanted to make sure that we understood what she was going over. She also made sure to point out things that could possibly trick us so that we could pay particular attention to them. She reiterated what was said in class and worked out examples so that we could apply it to our practice problems and exam questions.” – Rachel F., UCLA

“On my first exam in Orgo II, I got a 75% on the exam, which was below the mean.  After meeting with Robin, I ended up with an A on the next exam and the final exam, and overall I ended up with an A-.  I skyped Robin and went over all the questions I had.  She uses an amazing online tool to solve problems with me, and she then sent me all the notes.  Her thorough knowledge and her wonderful personality helped me to catch up and do well in this class!” Yolanda P., Cornell
