About Allan S.



PHD in Biochemistry from University of Alberta

Career Experience

After a 16 year career in biochemical research, I turned to tutoring as part of a career reinvention process. I've been tutoring chemistry professionally for over 3 years now, and am getting increasingly experienced at tutoring it online as well, having worked with for over 1 year now.

I Love Tutoring Because

as a new challenge for mid-life, tutoring has allowed me to keep up my knowledge base in chemical and biological sciences, allowed me to improve my communication and interpersonal skills, and work part time at a time when I have family and educational commitments as well. It is also work which gives me a feeling of accomplishment and of making a difference in the world around me, and where I can get the excitement of introducing new ideas and skills to minds young and old.

Other Interests

Computer programming, Cooking, Gardening, Reading, Skiing

The whiteboard is hard to write on even using a tablet and pen. The tutor had a lot of background noise making him hard tounderstand
