- Instructor: Professor Richard
Chemistry students that ask for our help come with a various level of preparedness – from lots of background in chemistry in college to almost none in high school. We are able to assist everybody. Whether it is a nine-grader in September struggling with naming compounds or a college student in April taking second semester of chemistry for majors with questions in nuclear chemistry, we do our best in assigning the qualified tutor within 72-hour timeframe or, often, sooner.
Our typical student needs help in general principles of chemistry such as dimensional analysis, measurements, atomic structure, chemical bonding, nomenclature, states of matter, properties, solutions, electron transfer reactions, classification of chemical reactions and balancing equations. In our explanations we approach the nature of chemical bonding and how bonding between atoms gives rise to the molecules and compounds through the three-dimensional structure of matter. We reveal how the macroscopic properties of substances on the visual level can be interpreted in terms of atomic and molecular arrangements on nano level.
We have skillful instructors who can gladly help with more advanced chemical topics such as atomic theory, chemical kinetics, equilibrium of acids-base chemistry, reactions entropy of thermochemistry, electrochemistry, quantum chemistry and nuclear chemistry.
Our Chemistry tutors extend beyond simple understanding of basic chemical principles and definitely assist in mastering problem-solving skills. That way we merge learning of mathematical and conceptual tools for quantifying when it comes to chemical equilibrium with an emphasis on the reactions of acids and bases, and other calculation-heavy parts of chemistry areas such as stoichiometry or gas laws.
iStudy assists students that seek help in many aspects of Organic Chemistry and Biological Chemistry as well. The latter includes sections on hydrocarbons, organic functional groups, carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, enzymes, nucleic acids, and metabolic pathways. As a part of organic chemistry we go into molecular orbital theory and valence bond resonance theory, and explain the ramification of covalent bonding in organic molecules, as well as help to rationalize fundamental noncovalent associations. We also discuss issues that directly affect health, energy for life and molecular mechanisms of diseases. That helps students to develop an understanding and an appreciation of how those concepts and skills are relevant to adjacent courses and their daily lives.
During lessons, the students are offered to apply critical thinking strategies in hypothetical scenarios and inquiry-based virtual on-line activities for selected laboratories. The iStudy is a vibrant company with a fast-growing collection of indigenously developed on-line education materials and database of web-links and helpful reading on various levels: high-school, Honors, IB, AP, undergrad, MCAT, DAT and beyond.
