I have a Ph.D. degree in Biochemistry and have many years of experience teaching at the University undergraduate and graduate levels. I have tutored many high school and college students in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Algebra and Prealgebra, and have had excellent results.

My approach to tutoring is a very simple one: teach the basics in a way the student "relates" and understands. I do not believe in rote memorization. Chemistry and Math are disciplines that build from the basics. I do N...
He helped significantly in understanding harder concepts but breaking them down. He helped me see the bigger picture and actually comprehend the material. He would work out problems with me and go over each step if I was confused.

J.R. taught me many concepts from chem 2 in a way I could understand them. He was consistent and available. He was excellent and patient and could teach very complex concepts and calculations.

Really helped me understand my math equations better as well as gain confidence to continue on my own. Helped me with making sure I had the right formulas. He was patient and kind and very straightforward.

J.R. Has been regularly tutoring Chemistry to my daughter who is in her senior year. This is the first time we ever used a tutor and I was surprised how well this has helped my daughter. J. R. Has not only helped her with the approach but also has really built her confidence. He has helped her to better conceptually understand problems and topics along with the appropriate approach to solving them. If you have a child that could use a little help or a huge boost in chemistry then J.R. Is a tutor I highly recommend. I believe my daughter describes it best - J.R. Helps her to understand and retain information better than what she was experiencing in the classroom

To begin with, JR was extremely accommodating with scheduling. He went, above and beyond, with fitting me into his hectic schedule. Being around finals time, this was overly appreciated! In addition, JR willingly met with me online, and for me, this was a ?lifesaver?! Secondly, JR made everything excessively understandable and very clear. He focused on where I was requesting help, and he didn?t waste any time during our tutoring sessions. I asked for additional practice worksheets, and those were provided. JR was thorough, professional, and NOT dull and boring which was a definite bonus. Because of tutoring with JR, my final went very well. Without his help, I?d really rather not think about how it might have gone! Without a doubt, JR definitely knows the material. He knows what he?s talking about. The final that JR helped me with was a college exam in chemistry, as I?m an engineering undergraduate at the University of Dayton. So again, he?s a fantastic and very knowledgeable tutor! I?d recommend him to anyone! He?ll definitely help you learn the material!

My 10th grade needed help with chemistry and we didn?t give J.R. much notice and he made it happen. My daughter was in tears that day over chemistry but after meeting with J.R. her knowledge, confidence and understanding was unbelievable. We are so grateful and highly recommend him. We will be using his services again in the future.

My son is taking an summer chemistry class through IUPUI that moves through the material very quickly. J.R.S. Has been able to take a large amount of material and break it down into information my son can understand and grasp. J.R.S. has a mastery of the material, and knows tricks and tips to help my son learn it effectively and he paced the session very well. My son really enjoyed working with him and looks forward to more sessions.

My daughter is learning a lot with J.R and says she enjoys her tutoring sessions! She says he explains things better than her chemistry teacher. Looking forward to future sessions.
- Punkii R. from Indianapolis, IN
My daughter thought she hated chemistry and was so discouraged. After 3 sessions with JR her semester average is up 10%, she's enjoying the class, and other students are coming to HER for help. He has made chemistry accessible and helped her to become a confident science student. It has been an amazing transformation. My only regret not hiring him sooner.

J.R. is very knowledgeable and patient. He prepares well before the lesson and explains clearly. My daughter thinks he is the best!
- Emily C. from Carmel, IN
J.R. contacted us and arranged an appointment quickly. He seems flexible in his schedule. While my daughter didn't need as much help as we thought, she felt that J.R. had a very good way of explaining Chemistry concepts. He spent the time going over the practice problems she was given. We would definitely contact him again for assistance!

My son had a review lesson with JR today. We scheduled the lesson very efficiently using the website, with relatively short notice and over the weekend. The teacher was prompt and effective. My son he was concerned that he did not understand the concepts in class (electro thermo chemistry) and felt very reassured after the lesson. JR reviewed the concepts and solved problems with him; all his questions were answered. We plan to take additional lessons prior to his AP exam. Excellent teacher.
- Daniela M. from Zionsville, IN
I highly recommend J.R. as an outstanding chemistry tutor. I have met with him three times to work through practice tests before the three chemistry exams this semester. He explains concepts very well and he showed me multiple ways to solve several of the problems. Because of J.R.'s help, I have scored well on the exams. If you want to improve your chemistry grade, call J.R.!

I'll never forget my daughter's sense of relief after just one tutoring sessions with J.R. She stated, "NOW I get it!" 'Nuff said!
- Julia G. from Westfield, IN
My teacher at school even noticed a difference once I got a tutor. He is willing to work with you until you truly understand the material. He allows you to work out the problem on your own, so you can know how to do it when you are taking the test. Great tutor overall!
- Shirley M. from Indianapolis, IN
Dr. J.R. S. and I have met a couple of times and he has helped me tremendously. He has a way of relating the topics down to something I can grasp. I was so far behind in my chemistry class, but with his help, I can come out of this class with knowledge and not just questions. I might even be able to squeeze a "B" out of it! I highly recommend him! He is excellent!

Dr. J.R.S. is a great tutor who emphasizes the foundation building in learning chemistry. We wanted my daughter to enjoy learning chemistry and to think of her career in chemistry or chemistry-related area. In her first semester of chemistry class, she was doing well and she had confidence in her chemistry. But my daughter was having difficulties in her 2nd semester chemistry class. We could see that she was losing interest in chemistry and about to give it up. We wanted to find someone who can help her re-ignite her interest in chemistry. And we found Dr. J.R.S. In our first meeting Dr. J.R.S. asked a few questions to my daughter on how she was feeling about chemistry and was doing in her chemistry class. We immediately knew we found the perfect tutor for my daughter: My daughter admitted that she had difficulties in grasping the concept of chemistry and was just memorizing the contents in her chemistry class. Dr. J.R.S. teaching method is to let his student understand/build foundation of chemistry, not just to develop a quick problem-solving technique. My daughter finished her chemistry class with great grade. But most importantly, thanks to Dr. J.R.S., she regained her confidence in chemistry.

J.R.S is an excellent tutor. My son had tried his Chemistry teacher and one other tutor and he still was having a difficult time. As soon as J.R.S started tutoring my son his grades improved immediately. My son received a 50 out of 50 on a test. My son who seemed defeated by chemistry quickly gained confidence because of J.R.S.teaching methods. He passed the class and remained eligible for the honor's diploma program at his school. J.R.S taught my son in a method that was easily understood and my son grasp the concepts right away. J.R.S was very organized,well prepared, and made the material easy for my son to understand. J.R.S asked for the materials ahead of time so that he could prepare his lesson with my son. J.R.S. made himself available to work with my son th help prepare for test, quizzes, and finals. J.R.S. knowledge and experience as a Professor made a big difference in his teaching methods. I highly recommend J.R.S. and will use him in the future with my other children if needed. I cannot say enough about J.R.S. and his excellent skills as a tutor.
