PRIVATE CHEMISTRY TUTORING
Since 2005, we’ve helped students improve their confidence and grades in chemistry.
We’re especially proud of the fact that other educators (teachers and professors) and high profile members of the Princeton University Administration trust us with their children’s academic success and recommend our services to others.
Our chemistry tutors know the material well and can help get your child back on track. They have scored highly on the same tests your child is taking and done well in high school and college-level courses. Many have won awards in competitions like the Chemistry Olympiad.

What parents say about our Chemistry tutors
Our team includes award-winning Princeton University undergrads and Master’s/PhD graduates who are rigorously screened and are extremely effective at communicating the material.
A brief “case study”:
The mother of a 10th grader at West Windsor Plainsboro South contacted us because her son was having a hard time with honors chemistry and his confidence was “taking a beating.”
He would spend lots of time studying for a test, but then would blank during the actual test. He needed somebody to help him understand the concepts and regain his confidence.
We matched the student with Matt, a public policy major at Princeton University who is passionate about education policy.
The client was extremely happy and also signed up for SAT prep as well.
Here’s some feedback:
“Matt, who has been tutoring chemistry for Michael since late March, has been wonderful.”
“Thank you Greg. I am very pleased with all the tutors you found for Michael.
They are all amazing and talented tutors. My son benefits a lot from them.”
We receive messages like these every week.
We regularly track progress
Progress reports are shared after every session so you always know what’s going on.
A Real-Life Example:
Time Tutored: 14:00 – 16:00
Previous Quiz/Test Scores:
Isabella told me that since the teaching is online, the teachers are not allowed to give tests. Therefore, there will not be any new tests coming soon.
Reviewed Stoichiometry lab worksheet, which involved molarity calculations, limiting reagent problems, and lab procedure practice. We also included a review of %m/m, %v/v, conversion practice, and more.
Also went ahead for next week a little bit by introducing oxidation numbers, as well as how to determine the oxidation numbers of each component in a molecule. Also briefly showed how to determine whether a certain reaction is a redox reaction.
Isabella is doing great, being able to pick up oxidation numbers (for next’s weeks material) very quickly.
The 2 hrs worked well, and we were able to fit in a lot more material. I can really see Isabella’s progress, and I am looking forward to next week.
Assignments for Next Week:
I told Isabella that it would be very helpful to review how to do each of one type of problem (i.e. a limiting reagent problem, a hydrate problem, etc.) right before the test, as most of the problems are very similar.
Since tests are suspended indefinitely though, there is no real rush. I will prepare materials next week regarding electrochemistry, and will start looking at final review materials (I already have found some practice finals that I think will be very useful). Thank you!

Addresses common student issues
A deep understanding of the subject matter allows us to personalize our approach.
Why is Chemistry important?
If you’re planning on majoring in the maths or sciences, colleges will most likely want to see how well you do in Chemistry class.
Even if you have no plans to ever use the material again, it’s great to get exposed to Chemistry.
Why do some students struggle with Chemistry?
Chemistry is one of the most difficult subjects in the high school curriculum.
As a result, it is the science subject for which we get the most requests for tutoring.
Many students struggle because the material is naturally difficult and fairly abstract.
We also hear over and over that students are not responding well to the teacher – either because of the teacher’s inability to connect, or the teacher’s expectation that students to do much of the studying on their own.
Many students fall behind and become frustrated, especially if they have been placed in an accelerated AP-level course where the material is covered at a very fast pace.
The Ultimate Compliment
"Joseph, Thank you for all your help. Madison truly enjoyed working with you. And, the ultimate compliment to you is that Madison got an "A" on her Chemistry final. Enjoy your summer."
