I'm a pre-med student, going back to college to do all the science classes that scared me the first time around. Chem 1 and 2 were challenging for me, and I was horrified by what everybody said about Organic Chemistry. The first few weeks of class I STRUGGLED. I went to my professor's office hours, did tons of practice problems, and spent so much time looking on YouTube. Frank Wong's videos were super helpful, and broke things down in bite size chunks that I could actually understand. So when he mentioned that he offered tutoring, I jumped at the chance to try it out. The investment was worth it. I was sitting on a nice C- at the start of the semester, and ended up with a B as my final grade! I know in great part I owe that success to the help that Frank and Jason provided me. Getting individualized help was crucial for me, especially since I have a background in the liberal arts and have struggled with certain science subjects in high school. Frank and Jason were both patient, understanding, and flexible. They would ask me to send them my syllabus and practice problems before the lesson started so we were able to maximize the efficiency of the time we spent on the tutoring session. I had never done online tutoring before, but it worked out great and fit in with my schedule much better. They used an online platform called Zoom which really helped with drawing the problems out like you would do in person on a whiteboard. They helped me with practice problems and homework, and they frequently drilled me to make sure that I fully understood the concepts before we moved on. They both explained things in a way that was more relaxed and easy going than what my professor could do. She was a great teacher, but she was always busy and only had a few minutes here or there. The pace in class was way too fast, but I didn't have to panic because I knew that my lessons with Frank and Jason would help me catch up. Honestly, paying college tuition is a big investment, so I saw tutoring as a way to PROTECT that investment. I can't thank Jason and Frank enough! Organic Chemistry was never easy for me, but they helped make it much easier than it would have been otherwise!Mar 2, 2020VerifiedOrgo Made Easy's reply
Thanks Casey! Jason and I really enjoyed working with ya! Glad you reached out to us back in September! Wish you the best. 😃
Frank was awesome! Safiya was the one that tutored me and she was great too. Very communicative. Easy to understand. Willing to help and very flexible with meeting and helping me out with my crazy schedule. I would definitely recommend to anyone!May 5, 2016VerifiedOrgo Made Easy's reply
Thanks so much for writing the review David! Safiya said it was a pleasure working with you as well. :]
It had been quite some time since I had been in school, I was also juggling a full-time, and trying to balance life in general. Starting back to school is daunting enough, never mind taking Orgo! I knew that I needed to find the right tutor. I was hesitant at first to try online tutoring as I tend to like the in-person atmosphere better. Frank addressed all of my questions and concerns promptly. I decided to move forward and work with Safiya at Orgo Made Easy. I really enjoyed working with Safiya. She is a really effective and organized teacher who explains the difficult concepts in a way that I could understand them. I had never used Skye before, or the shared online whiteboard. They were both easy to use, even for a technically-challenged dinosaur like myself! And after a long day at work and commute home, it was refreshing to just head upstairs to my laptop for our sessions, instead of having to head back out in my car again to meet up in person. I highly recommend Orgo Made Easy. Thank you Frank, and Thank you Safiya!Nov 1, 2016Verified
When I was taking organic chemistry, I was going through an extremely difficult time in my personal life and it made it hard to focus on my work. Despite this, Frank was extremely patient with me. He explained the material in a clear and consistent manner, agreed to go through as many practice problems as I needed to, and made fun analogies to help me remember things. On some weeks, he was willing to move his personal schedule around to work through problems. And when I began studying for grad school exams that required organic chemistry, I remembered the tricks Frank taught me. Truly an amazing tutor!May 28, 2020Orgo Made Easy's reply
Thanks Isabelle! ❤️ Really appreciate the feedback. I’m so happy to hear all those sessions of “pushing you into the trapholes 🕳” paid off. 😄 #NoStudentsWereHurtInThePushing #NotSureAboutTheLandingPart #OhWell 🤷♂️
Frank and Jason helped me immensely with a lot of harder topics in organic chemistry. They made the reactions transparent and easier to understand, and it really helped me for my final exam. I would definitely use their tutoring services if you need help for organic chemistry.May 27, 2020Orgo Made Easy's reply
Thanks Matt! Way to reach out to us 1 week before finals 😂🤣! But in all seriousness great job 👍🏼, glad we could show you how we think about Orgo and make it easier for ya! 👏🏼
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We offer discounts if you refer friends/classmates or if you want to do a 2 person group session!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?8+ Years of Tutoring (worked with over 200 students from 25+ Universities in 5+ Countries), Teaching Assistant for Human Physiology + Physics, YouTube Educator, Biology Major from Boston University.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I used to be that struggling student in science classes who would be so frustrated from not being able to fully understand the concepts, but then one day a TA and some great Professors showed me how to think critically and learn properly and everything clicked! After that I made it my mission to share this way of learning/thinking with as many students as possible!
