Get on Top of Your Organic Chemistry Course

Confused by Organic Chemistry? Worried you might fail?

Organic Chemistry exam panic
  • You need good results in Organic Chemistry to get to where you want to go
  • But, Organic Chemistry is tough - it's even called the 'weed out' course
  • Some Professors even pride themselves on their high failure rates!
  • Chevron Circle Right
    Sadly, many students give up on their aspirations due to their Organic Chemistry struggles

Hi, I'm Mark Coster. I have 20+ years experience in Organic Chemistry and my mission is to help students achieve Organic Chemistry success and to pursue their dreams.

With the Right Approach, Any Student can Ace Organic Chemistry! 

Yes, it's a bold claim! However, I have witnessed it time and again, and done it myself - approached the right way, Organic Chemistry can be mastered by anyone. The problem is that, normally, the Professor, the textbook and most tutors make everything seem so overwhelming.

With support and the right learning and study strategies, anyone can master Organic Chemistry.

The key is to use the right approaches. To focus on the strategies that lead to deep understanding. And to focus on training for the exam.

Do you Feel Like You Were Left Behind in Week 3?

One of the daunting things about learning Organic Chemistry is that there seems to be so much content, covered so quickly. It's easy to fall behind and not know how to catch up. Does any of this sound familiar:

  • Week 1: "Yawn! This is all stuff I already knew!"
  • Week 2: "Finally, some new material."
  • Week 3: "Wait... Whaa? What language is this?... I am so lost right now..."

From there, it only gets harder to catch up. You turn to the textbook for help, but, if anything, it makes things worse! So. Much. Information. If you're lucky enough to catch the Professor during office hours, you get the same explanation that was used in class. Maybe it makes sense for a while, until you get home and try some problems from the textbook...

The textbook problems are either too straightforward or too difficult. Worse still, there are either no answers or answers with no explanations!

Surely, there must be a better way...

A Guiding Hand

There's no doubt that private tutoring with an experienced and knowledgeable tutor leads to better grades. A good tutor is expert in the material, knows how to spot learning roadblocks and has strategies for overcoming them. A great tutor will go the extra mile, push you to the limits of your understanding and set individual tasks that are designed to get to deep understanding as quickly as possible and help you ace your exams! A great Organic Chemistry tutor should:

  • Give you expert tuition in Organic Chemistry that comes from PhD-level training
  • Have many years experience guiding students just like you, to Organic Chemistry success
  • Drive you to succeed through personalized challenges
  • check
    Give you the best value possible, by thoroughly preparing for every session
  • check
    Be available to you outside of the session hours to support your learning
  • check
    Provide you with materials from tutoring sessions for your revision
  • check
    Help you form strategies to ace the exam

You Don't Just Need a Tutor, You Need a Coach

Looking at the way students are taught and tutored it struck me that things would be much better if an Organic Chemistry tutor acted more like a Sports Coach. Think about it, a Sports Coach working with an athlete:

  • 1
    Looks for the key areas (key concepts) to improve to achieve optimal performance on game day (exam day)
  • 2
    Develops training exercises (practice exercises & problems) to get better in those key areas (key concepts)
  • 3
    Analyzes the competition (the exam) to formulate a game day strategy (exam strategy)
  • 4
    Constantly looks for weak spots in technique (understanding) and ways to improve them
  • 5
    Is available for advice outside training sessions (tutoring sessions)
  • 6
    Is constantly thinking of ways to get the best performance from the athlete (student)

Organic Chemistry Coaching for Outstanding Exam Day Performance

My sole focus and number one goal is to help you get the best result you can possibly achieve in Organic Chemistry, and I have the expertise, experience and tutoring techniques to do so.

Pocket Professor

Pocket Professor - On-Demand Organic Chemistry Support

What happens if you get stuck, really stuck, while studying in between sessions? Sometimes, you just need a little nudge in the right direction, to get you back on track. Students who sign up for a block of 4 or more tutoring sessions are invited to a Slack workspace where you can drop me a message any time. Ask a quick question, prepare for your next tutoring session or share your struggles and successes.

It's like having a Professor in your Pocket!

Slack makes it super easy to share attachments, links, photos (eg. a textbook problem or class notes) and works seamlessly on mobile, desktop and tablet.

What to Expect

I use Zoom video-conferencing software. It's easy to use - I simply share a link for you to click and away we go. I screen share whatever I draw on my Surface laptop and you can screen share, send photos of your work, hold paper in front of the webcam, or whatever suits you best! I record every tutoring session and make the video privately available to you, so you can revise anything at a later time. After the tutoring session, I also send you a PDF of all my notes from the session.
