    General Chemistry 101 - Tutoring - University Level

    This class is designed as a question and answer tutoring session with one-on-one help from a highly qualified and experienced university level chemistry lecturer.

    Topics that can be discussed include (but are not limited to):
    - Stoichiometry (converting between molecular weight, grams and mols and balancing chemical equations)
    - Chemical bonding (VESPR theory, electronic structure, atomic and molecular orbitals)
    - Solutions and mixtures (calculating concentrations and stock solution conversion)
    - Acids and bases (calculating pH, pKa and pKb)
    - Thermodynamics (enthalpy, entropy, free energy and diagrams)
    - Redox chemistry (balancing equations, determining oxidation state change)

    This class is not intended to replace your ongoing lectures and coursework in general chemistry, but should be used in addition to help strengthen your understanding of core concepts and prepare for midterm and final examinations.

    NB: I am able to teach to small groups (up to 6) in addition to one-on-one sessions. The cost per session may vary depending on additional students.

    Extra information

    Ahead of class: Indicate the topics in your class that you are struggling with and if possible provide sample problems from your textbook or class notes (I will prepare additional notes and problems based on what you require)

    About Me

    I am an academic research chemist.
    I have significant experience in teaching, although my usual jive is doing wet chemistry in a laboratory (which I've been doing for the past 15 years). When it comes to chemistry, I'm very enthusiastic and I'm happy to share that enthusiasm with anyone and everyone who wants to learn!

    While lectures and classroom learning are often hands-off and can be boring, I'm determined to make chemistry engaging and memorable. Together we'll work through problems and topics at your pace in a way that helps you learn rather than memorise outcomes.

    I can offer tutoring and remedial lectures in general chemistry, organic, inorganic, organometallic and polymer chemistry at the university level.

    I believe that learning is a two-way street and my students get out as much as they put in from a class. I'm the kind of tutor/professor that expects my students to be ready to learn and I have high expectations that students will be prepared with their own questions.

    Education

    Bachelor of Science, Honours Chemistry (2007) - specialisation in early transition metal complexes
    PhD Organometallic Chemistry (2013) - specialisation in f-block actinide chemistry and catalysis
    Postdoc in Organometallic Chemistry (2013-Present) - specialisation in catalysis and first row transition metal chemistry

    Experience / Qualifications

    I've been a guest lecturer at the University of Ottawa and Simon Fraser University in Canada several times in the past 5 years.
    I have ample experience as a tutor and lecturer in chemistry from my undergraduate and graduate education.
    This class is designed as a question and answer tutoring session with one-on-one help from a highly qualified and experienced university level chemistry lecturer. Topics that can be discussed include (but are not limited to): - Functional Groups and Resonance Structures - Stereochemistry (chirality and enantiomers) - Substitution and Elimination Reactions (Sn1, Sn2, E1, E2) - Arrow-pushing Mechanisms - Acid-Base Chemistry - Synthetic Methods (e.g. Gringard reactions, metal catalysed transformations, etc.) - Spectroscopic Methods (IR, Raman, NMR analysis) This class is not intended to replace your ongoing lectures and coursework in general chemistry, but should be used in addition to help strengthen your understanding of core concepts and prepare for midterm and final examinations. NB: Remedial lectures can be provided on a case by case basis if requested. I am able to teach to small groups (up to 6 students) at once, but the price per group may vary.
    This class is designed as a question and answer tutoring session with one-on-one help from a highly qualified and experienced university level chemistry lecturer who specialises in transition metal chemistry.

    Methodology and Applications Mathematics Course
    Mathematics, a fundamental discipline which requires a lot of skill and rigor from an early age, is our focal point par excellence for forging scientists. Likewise the physical sciences which are the applications of the first gray of the sciences. I am an experienced middle and secondary school teacher of Mathematics with over 10 years of experience. I took on several challenges with students losing their bearings or lacking self-confidence with distance school supervision. Teaching science is a profession of passion, a burden that we are not very passionate about. I am very available and very attached to the smiles of a student and his parents filled with joy by satisfaction. At your disposal to take up major challenges. Thank you College: 6th to Terminale

    Cryptocurrency investing for beginners (from level 0)
    Investing in cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum etc) is an activity that can allow you to have extra income every month with very little time invested in it (you can easily do it just a few days a month, and after working hours) However, the amount of information online on how to start this activity can be overwhelming and confusing. Since I have been investing in crypto for 5 years, and achieved financial freedom through it, I can show you the basics and also the systems I constantly use to create a long-term profitable portfolio, while getting weekly, compounded, passive income in the meanwhile. Just some of the topics we'll cover, that we'll give you confidence on your long-term investments: - What is Bitcoin? - What is the blockchain? - What is Ethereum? - Other key cryptocurrencies - Some examples - Where can i learn more on my own (top non-biased media resources i used for the last 5 years)? - Where can i buy and sell cryptocurrencies? - Why does Bitcoin go up massively every 4 years? - How does the market REALLY work? - - How can I create a long-term portfolio with just a little bit of time invested every week? (explained step-by-step) - When should i buy and sell my cryptocurrencies? (personal opinion) Also, if you have ANY doubts in between classes, i will give you my contact details and reply to you within 24h Give it a try and I promise you will love it :) *The Services Offered are NOT Financial Advice*

    Brigitte
    Individualized German Online Tutoring for Business, School and Private
    I am currently teaching German on a one on one base through individualized online teaching via zoom or any other online platform. I teach German grammar as well as conversational German and German for business and/or research. Please don't hesitate contact me to find out more about my teachings by asking questions and letting me know about your goals and concerns. I not only speak German as my mother tongue, but I also have excellent English skills and have taught adults and children in Japan, the USA and France. While living in Japan, I taught English to biologists of a biotech-company. For this purpose, I prepared current newspaper articles corresponding to the interests of the students and the teaching objectives for the classes. In class, the students and I used these articles to study the language, discuss the vocabulary and grammar as well as the language style used. In New York, I did not teach a language, but fashion design at the University (FIT Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC) for several years. All classes were taught in English with the student body consisting of international students, which required detailed preparation of the class. At the High School of Fashion Industries (HSFI), also in NYC, I taught fashion design and creation to students grade 9 - 12. Here too, the lessons were exclusively taught in English. For my teachings, I developed daily detailed lesson plans to not only make sure that the predetermined class goals were easily reached, but also to ensure that the class content was tailored to the students' needs and that a positive learning climate was promoted.

    French, sciences, correction of end of cycle work
    HEP graduate, I offer French lessons via webcam. I take into account your weaknesses and your strengths so that these courses remain a joy and a sharing. Having a thorough knowledge of the French teaching plan, I propose the study of various kinds of text (adventure, story, news item, fantastic, marvelous ...). To achieve this, we will review the orthographic, grammatical and lexical bases. On the other hand, I also teach science (up to 8P) I really like to correct the end of cycle work (certificate, matu, Hautes écoles ...)

    Hello! My name is Christopher and I am currently studying Computer science at TU Delft. I am able to tutor in both Maths and Computer Science at any elementary or High school level and have experience teaching a range of syllabus. Qualifications: - A levels: -A* in Maths - A* in Computer Science - A* in Music - Certified Microsoft Innovative Educator Experience: ZVEZA PRIJATELJEV MLADINE LJUBLJANA (ASSOCIATION FOR FRIENDS OF YOUTH) ZPM is an association in Slovenia that aims to help underprivileged children in many different ways including food packets, after-school clubs, and tutoring. I originally started as a volunteer in 2016 and since then I have helped countless students with their school work; most commonly in Maths but also other subjects like Physics, English, and Chemistry. Later my position developed into employment where I would run after school clubs to help the children build confidence and talk about their emotions, make fun programs for summer camps, and of course, I continued with tutoring many children GIRLS DO CODE Girls Do Code is an organization in Slovenia that aims to get more women into STEM, they believe that this interest has to start in childhood and therefore they offer lessons in Computer Science to over 300 girls. This cause was something that I thought was incredibly important and so I became a volunteer for their organization. This entailed teaching a group of 10 girls the basics of Computer Science in a fun and creative way and was a very rewarding experience. Through my training for Girls Do Code, I was certified by Microsoft as an Innovative Educator. I currently work as a Maths teaching assistant at an international school in the Netherlands where I work with children struggling with maths in small groups. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!
