Teaching organic chemistry has been a passion of mine for the past eight years. I’m a full time independent chemistry tutor, both worldwide via Skype and locally in Western Massachusetts. In addition to helping hundreds of students all over the world, I have also helped many local students at schools like UMass, Amherst College, Smith College, Mt Holyoke, STCC, HCC, Westfield State, Bay Path, Elms College, AIC and Western New England University.
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 a 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 in a manageable way so understanding the concept was enjoyable and not strictly memorization.”
My website includes more information about me and also offers some free tutorials on organic chemistry: www.OrganicChemistrySolutions.com
What Students Are Saying About Robin:
“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 University
