>> Beginning in January, 2022

Okay, friends - by public request I will be offering tutoring services this upcoming semester (and beyond)Sessions will be offered virtually or in person - whatever works best for you will work best for me. While one-on-one sessions will be available, I'd prefer to do group sessions... partly because it's more fun, and partly because my free-time is scarce! Tentative rates will be something like $20/hour (or $15/hour for groups of 5 or more), but I'm still ironing out the details on that kind of stuff. The goal will always be to make you into the best chemist that I can make you, not for me to make money.


Courses I feel comfortable tutoring include, but are not limited to: General Chemistry, Organic Chem I, Organic Chem II and Organic Chem III. Maybe some upper-year chemistry courses as well - inorganic chemistry, spectroscopy, transition metals, etc.  Yes, I will be able to provide help for laboratory and lecture portions of these courses. Should you want assistance with any other courses, I mean I can try my best to help you out, or I can point you in the direction of someone who can help you better. Of course, should I end up having to act as a TA for any of these courses during the semester, I'll have to temporarily suspend tutoring sessions for that course as that's obviously a conflict of interest.

Now, if you're on this page, I assume you're familiar with my teaching style. We'll keep things casual, we'll keep things fun and we'll try to keep things exciting. The focus is on preparing you to get through university without a Britney Spears-esque meltdown. At the end of the day, I work for you - I can't promise that I know everything - because I don't. For sure, you'll have questions that I just won't know the answer to. But I can promise that I'll do whatever I can do to help make your journey through the tough and treacherous hallways of chemistry a little bit easier.

For more information, or if you're interested in setting up a tutoring session, please do not hesitate to contact me at acook093@uottawa.ca

This whole tutoring page is still under construction. Check back for more details in Dec 2021.
