I am currently pursuing a PhD in Organic Chemistry at an elite chemistry program (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Rank #6 in Chemistry). At UIUC I have taught discussion sections for Organic Chemistry, earning an Excellence in Teaching Fellowship in 2020. I completed a B.A. in Biochemistry with Honors at Grinnell College, a top ranked liberal arts school (#3 for Best Undergraduate Education), and worked as a teaching assistant, leading discussion sections for Organic Chemistry and...

Kai helped keep me from failing my class, he has great knowledge of organic chemistry and couldn't recommend anyone else. His times are pretty nice as well and he is just very helpful.
- Greg P. from Las Vegas, NV
He was very clear in his explanations and helped me feel more comfortable about the material. I definitely recommend
- Adam H. from Rossford, OH
He helped me to understand a couple topics in organic chemistry that I was a little confused on and he really cleared that up for me. I would definitely recommend him for any organic chemistry or chemistry topics that you may be confused on!
- Ayanna B. from Amherst, MA
Thanks! Great help last minute before my exams. Was very articulate and to the point in the lesson and knowledgeable
- Caroline S. from Willowbrook, IL
Kai was extremely helpful in helping me review NMR and alcohol reactions, will definitely be using him again throughout this semester! Overall great experience!! Highly recommend

I am taking organic chemistry as a prerequisite for a Masters in Nutrition. I was quite nervous about mastering organic chem and so glad I found Kai as my tutor. We met online for an hour last week and he got to work quickly to get me up to speed on the course material. We will meet once a week throughout the semester and I am confident Kai can help me with my practice problems and any questions I have to make me successful in this difficult class.

Kai was a wonderful tutor throughout the entire semester I was working with him. He was patient, and did a very nice job explaining difficult concepts. He was also very flexible and was able to fit me in for last minute sessions frequently. He made organic chemistry so much easier!
- Riley G. from Englewood, CO
He showed solutions and explained but also was quick so we could get through many questions. Helpful with Organic. Thanks again.
- Tammy S. from Norman, OK
He guide me how to study the reactions and went over examples to help me better understand. Very thorough and kind. He also went over how to differentiates the substitution and elimination. I

Kai was an extremely patient and helpful tutor throughout my summer Organic Chemistry course. This course moved extremely fast, with several weeks worth of content being presented in each lecture. Kai's tutoring sessions allowed me to make better sense of these topics in preparation for my exams. Kai was also great at creating additional practice problems that could test specific skills/ problem types that I had trouble on. He was always willing to check over my homework problems or exam practice problems, which I greatly appreciated. Once again, Kai was an excellent tutor, and I'll be sure to return to him when I take the second semester of organic chemistry.
- Rahul G. from Omaha, NE
I was able to tutor with Kai for Organic Chemistry 1 and 2 and Kai helped teach me so much! Kai was great at communicating the different teaching points, and he was able to give a great description and explanation for every point. Kai was very patient and gave me all the help I needed, and i would recomemd Kai to any student!
- Drew R. from Hope Mills, NC
Kai not only answers the question, ?what,? but also, ?why.? This was my first time using Wyzant. Since I am just starting out with Organic Chemistry, Kai explained everything thoroughly to make sure I was following. This lesson has given me the conceptual fundamentals and I feel much more confident about my upcoming quiz.
