Graduate Chemistry Student at McGill University tutoring organic chemistry to students from high schools, cegeps and universities with over 5 years of experience in tutoring.

Methodology

Generally, the tutoring session involves multiple problem solving exercises in order to target the weaknesses and strengths of the student. Professors often do not have time to give clear and in-depth explanation which is why, during these classes, you can acquire a better understanding of the material and understand clearly what once seemed to be impossible to grasp!

Ambassador

One of our best! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and responds during the day. Angela will plan your first lesson with care.

Background

I have been tutoring privately for the last five years which involved mostly individual tutoring in organic chemistry. I have also been a teaching assistant for introductory organic chemistry courses at McGill University, thus I am more than comfortable and experienced in teaching organic chemistry. In addition, my students have observed an enormous increase in their results through a stronger understanding of the material which allows them to no longer MEMORIZE, but rather LEARN chemistry and deeply enjoy the matter.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $ 50/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $220
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $450

Details

A cancellation of the tutoring session in less than 48 hours would require the student to pay 50% of the amount that would have been given to the tutor for the scheduled tutoring session.

For example, if the student scheduled a 2-hour session, it would be required for the student to pay 50$ which is 50% of the total amount due (50$/h, thus 100$ for 2 hours).

Angela's Resume

My name is Angela and I am a graduate student at McGill University with a Bachelor degree in Bio-Organic Chemistry (B. Sc. from McGill University). I have tutored in the past through student organizations, but also through McGill Tutoring Services, thus providing my students with all the skills that I have acquired over the years. I have also been a Teaching Assistant for introductory organic chemistry 1 and 2 multiple times, teaching over 600+ students in a semester. In the last few years, I have been mostly tutoring organic chemistry, however I have a strong background in science and I would be more than happy to make your studying a more enjoyable experience.

Perfect! Angela is hands down the most passionate tutor I have ever had. She is very patient and made sure that I understood the material before moving on to the next topic and was willing to re-explain topics until I understood them and was able to explain them back. Angela's warm, bubbly, and enthusiastic demeanour made me feel comfortable to ask any question I may have had. Angela, thank you so so much for your help and support - I really appreciate it!

I met Angela through the McGill tutoring website, she was my tutor for both Organic Chemistry 1 and 2 and she was amazing! She really took the time to explain all the little details in depth to me and was always able to accommodate my busy schedule! Would absolutely recommend her for any help in chemistry!

BEST CHEM TUTOR!

I really struggled with org 1 and 2 last year but Angela made these courses a lot easier! She helped me increase my scores by a lot by breaking topics down into easily understandable examples and could come up with helpful examples, explanations, and diagrams on the spot to clarify whatever I needed. She was always available for extra help around exam time and helped me identify and work through common problems I had and how to approach the exam. She is also super cool and really nice, so I definitely recommend her!

A
Anne-Marie

I've been Angela's student for over a year now and she has been extremely helpful in preparing me for midterms and exams. Even online, her tutoring quality remains. She has helped me understand particularities about organic chemistry through examples. I would highly recommend her as a tutor for organic chemistry since she has helped me not only pass the class, but achieve excellent academic results.

Angela's interview

QUESTION 01 | 05
When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
Angela — I have been interested in science since an early age to the point that one year, for my birthday, I received two microscopes and a telescope - you can imagine my joy. My love towards science never once disappeared. I went to science competitions with my classmates earning first and second places. As time passed, I had to choose which major to pursue in university, which forced me to choose between a degree in physical sciences or a degree in education to teach science. I opted for a degree in chemistry as its application is vast and allows one to learn in a different manner - whether by using mathematics in physical chemistry or logic in organic chemistry. It seemed like the best fit for me due to my broad interest in the world around us.
QUESTION 02 | 05
What makes you passionate about your subject?
Angela — Chemistry is everywhere around us. It's in the water that we drink, and in the air that we breathe. It's in the stars of the galaxy and in the cells of our body. In fact, people often say that we are made of stardust and indeed they are not entirely incorrect as in fact the same atoms that were once part of a star are now part of our being. Chemistry is fascinating on its own, but also because of its wide utility in our everyday life. It starts from medications that we consume to the batteries of our phones. It's a science that can explain how matter functions, but also allow us to mix and match matter in order to form something new.
QUESTION 03 | 05
What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Angela — Teaching has always been incredible for me. It allows me to think about fundamental concepts in diverse ways so that I can transfer that knowledge to my students. Group teaching periods are exciting for me as they permit me to see the flow of thoughts between students. Individual teaching is especially rewarding when my students reach their Eureka! moment. The feeling I have when I can successfully illustrate the beauty of nature and chemistry to one of my students is indescribable, and it keeps me motivated to keep on teaching. My favourite part of tutoring is seeing how the student goes from having difficulties with the material to excelling in it.
QUESTION 04 | 05
Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you? Please explain.
Angela — I have a few professors that I look up to due to their teaching strategies. I find it very inspiring when professors are able to explain complex material in such a way that anyone in the room can understand. I know that a professor is an excellent teacher when they can teach me difficult material and prepare me to think about it in the context of scenarios never seen in class. Professors that teach you how to think and deduce logically the answers to the problems rather than memorize are gems. They prepare you for future challenges and not for a test.
QUESTION 05 | 05
What are your keys to success?
Angela — I am someone who is all for logical thinking. Memorizing science is inefficient, hard, and useless.
I listen closely to my students' requests and thoughts to personalize my teaching strategies.
I take time to go over concepts that I deem crucial in order to solidify current knowledge and set a strong foundation for further studying.
Basics are the most important, once the basics are strong, everything else is easier to learn. Basics are like the foundation of a house, if the foundation is lousy, the whole house will fall. That's why it's better to take time and make a good foundation.
