Online Organic Chemistry Tutoring

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

Matt Pierce [Eastern Time Zone]

Matt-PierceTeaching 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 an amazing 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.”

Anna Tsimelzon  [Pacific Time Zone]
For many students organic chemistry is what stands between them and a dream career in health care. I would like to be the person who helps them to open that door. I see my role as provider of the missing ingredients from the educational experience. For some students the lecture or the book simply does not make sense. I will explain the concept in as many different ways as needed until the student gets it. For some students more practice problems are needed. I am happy to provide extra practice problems and guide the student through a solution.
I obtained my Ph.D. in organic chemistry from UCSC in 2005. Since then I worked as a research scientist in a few startups in Bay Area, CA, before switching to teaching. In addition to tutoring, I teach organic chemistry at San Francisco State University on part-time basis.

I offer tutoring in organic chemistry online (Skype, Facetime, Google hangouts) or in-person, if you are local to Bay Area, CA.

A review from one of my many happy students: “Anna is passionate, knowledgeable and driven for OCHEM. She saw my weaknesses and grilled me until I had the material down. She was prepared, she knew the material and most important she was able to teach it in a way that I was able to understand it. With her help I went from failing to passing OCHEM.” Lohan C.
