Perfect! Stewart was very helpful in the short time I had him as a tutor. He responded almost immediately to my initial request for a tutoring session. He was very kind and easily explained/walked me through certain concepts/questions that I didn't understand. Highly recommend!!! :)

Stewart's response

Has been great to work with and willing to learn

M
Marissa

Perfect! Stewart has been a fantastic tutor so far and has not failed to answer any of my questions in its entirety! I have been struggling with Organic Chemistry for quite some time and Stewart has been able to thoroughly explain concepts in a way that I can finally understand them and better apply them. He helped to develop a great approach/plan to covering each lesson and highlighting the areas I am struggling with. Additionally, he has instilled so much confidence in me and very supportive with his teaching style, I am looking forward to working with Stewart for the duration of the next few months!

Stewart's response

Great to work with. Hard working and knows what they want to understand better.

Excellent! Stewart has a very good grasp of chemistry and is able to answer the vast majority of my questions.
He is also good at walking though calculations step by step.

Stewart's response

Hamish did a great job at our previous lesson. With time spent practicing the material he should do well.

Stewart is an incredible tutor!! He helped me so much with organic chemistry. He knows the material so well and is very good at explaining! He is also very patient and kind. Even if I don’t understand something, he will reexplain it until you understand! I met with a couple of tutors prior to Stewart and he is by far the best tutor I’ve ever had! Would definitely recommend!

Stewart is extremely knowledgeable and is able to present the necessary knowledge for concepts in a very simple and straightforward way. He is very versatile, as he was able to suit his teaching style to my learning style. I highly recommend him for any chemistry course you are struggling in or simply for any course you want a deeper understanding in.

Stewart is AMAZING, kind and attentive! After working with him for about a year now I can confidently say that my work ethic, approach to the material and overall confidence surrounding the material has improved immensely. He is very open to feedback and willing to change his approach to tutoring as well, which is great if you're a student with specific learning needs. Stewart is friendly, approachable and a very positive person. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the material and has helped me to improve my performance by helping me master tough concepts and improving my test-taking strategies, and study habits. I would 100% recommend his tutoring services.

Stewart was my chemistry and organic chemistry tutor for four years. He is a very patient and kind tutor who genuinely cares about the success of the students he tutors. He always took the time to stick with a concept until he was sure I understood it. I highly recommend Stewart, he really helped me prepare for the chemistry questions on the MCAT and achieve my goal of being accepted to medical school.

Stewart's interview

QUESTION 01 | 05
1) When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
Stewart β€” My main field of interest in regards to science is chemistry. While I find the other sciences and other topics interesting chemistry has held my attention for a long time. I first became interested in chemistry several years ago while in high school. When taking general science my instruction in chemistry wasn't very stimulating and I found I lacked interest and understanding. However, I luckily stuck with chemistry and took more advanced high school classes relating to chemistry. While the content and experiments were interesting the most important thing that led to my interest in chemistry were the teachers of these advanced classes. They had such knowledge of the subject and a desire to share their knowledge in a way that made the subject interesting. So my interest in chemistry can be traced back to great chemistry teachers.
QUESTION 02 | 05
2) What makes you passionate about your subject?
Stewart β€” One of the best things about chemistry and about understanding chemistry is that it gives an insight into how our bodies work, how technology works, how the world works, and how the universe works. This understanding of how things work comes from an understanding of how small particles act and how their behaviour influences large objects. Knowledge of chemistry can help explain things that people encounter in everyday life from "how does soap clean my hands?" to "where do the different colours of fireworks come from?" and "Why do areas far from large bodies of water typically have extreme temperatures while those near the coast often have more moderate temperatures?" This knowledge of how things work and being able to share this knowledge with others makes me passionate about chemistry.
QUESTION 03 | 05
3) What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Stewart β€” One thing I like about tutoring is the ability to help students understand and even develop their own passion for the subject. I have seen so many students go from completely confused to having the ability to eloquently discuss chemistry topics and even want to pursue chemistry on their own. Being able to help students have "lightbulb moments" and discover their interests is a great thing about tutoring.

One of the things that may make me a "SuperProf" is my ability to explain things in different ways. If a student is confused about a concept I can often find many ways to explain it that they have never heard from their teacher. Eventually we can find the explanation that works for the student. I also try to relate concepts to real life and to things that the student will understand. Chemistry, science, and math can all be very abstract. However, it is often possible to explain an example of how the concepts work in real life or provide an analogy to explain a phenomenon.
QUESTION 04 | 05
4) Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you? Please explain.
Stewart β€” In terms of teachers who inspired me I have to connect back to the previous question about how I developed my interest in chemistry. It was because of amazing high school chemistry teachers that I developed my interest. I like to think that I am able to continue on their work that inspired me by inspiring future chemists and scientists and just be encouraging students to follow their passions.
QUESTION 05 | 05
5) What are your keys to success?
Stewart β€” My keys to success would be 1) pursuing happiness and enjoyment as much as possible both in life and work. 2) Taking time for self-care. and 3) Being kind to those around me and I find that kindness often comes back around.
