...Throughout my time in the course, I would assist friends who had difficulty in the class. This, combined with my years of experience as a teaching assistant for similar courses through chemical engineering, makes me qualified to tutor organic chemistry. I have a Bachelor's of Science in Chemical Engineering from Virginia Tech and a PhD in Chemical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon.
