Hello, my name is Heidi. I have taught as adjunct in the Community College. I have taught various chemistry courses including general chemistry and organic chemistry.

I hold the CRLA (College Reading and learning association) regular tutoring certificate.

I graduated with a first class bachelor's degree in Chemistry with honors from the University of Liverpool, England. During my degree I spent a year working in industry for Zeneca. During this year I gained practical experience in Ion e...

I highly suggest that you come to Heidi with the specific problems that you are struggling with! With her experience as a professor, she helped me identify potential trick questions that my own professor ended up putting on the exam and thanks to her I knew how to tackle them. She even sent me a pdf document with a handy list of reactions after the session!

We talked a lot about what our tutoring sessions would include. She named a few topics in OChem that I might want to review before we started, just to make sure things go smoothly. She was very helpful and I look forward to working with her.

Heidi is a extremely knowledgeable tutor - she assisted me in Chemistry II, Organic Chemistry I and Organic Chemistry II. She is very patient and explains in a clear and concise manner.

Heidi is an excellent tutor for organic chemistry. She came on time. I find it useful to me that she suggests using a flash card to memorize the multiple reactions. She answered all my questions and summarized the concept for me in an easy way that I can understand. Thanks for your time and for helping me understand the materials.

We've had great luck finding Mickie B, our Honors Chemistry Tutor. We scan our child's study guide, and Mickie reviews it prior to the session. Our daughter really appreciates Mickie, and gets along great with her. The one time we could not schedule with Mickie, we found a terrific substitute, literally at the last minute. That was Heidi. Heidi emailed me within the hour with a great location to meet, and she accommodated our last minute need for a tutor. I am grateful for this service. We would definitely contact Heidi again, and appreciate her skill at explaining the topic matter.

She started working with Heidi part way through Organic Chemistry. My daughter was sure she was going to fail, but I said take the whole class anyway, so if you have to take it again it's familiar to you. She passed! She was one of the only students who had not taken chemistry in high school, so she was struggling. She told me that when Heidi explained things she suddenly understood them. She also encountered some other students who had been tutored by Heidi and their experiences were also very good. Heidi was very flexible and was able to see my daughter right away when we contacted her for help. (It was a chemistry crisis!) She was also very flexible about working with my daughter's schedule and meeting her near campus. I most highly recommend Heidi R as a tutor! This was a 100% positive experience for us!

Heidi is the only reason I was able to pass my 8 week organic chemistry course. She is patient and has an extremely flexible schedule. I was able to meet with her weekly. She walked me through my homework problems and answered all of my questions in great detail. I would recommend her to anyone who is struggling with organic chemistry.

Heidi contacted me within minutes of my initial request. We were lucky enough to be able to schedule a hour within a couple of days, just in time for a Chemistry test. She is quite knowledgeable and was able to answer all my daughter's questions quickly and clearly. My daughter appreciated her patience. I appreciated her flexibility. The results are in the performance: my daughter reported the test was easy thanks to Heidi's coaching.

Heidi was a great tutor for my daughter in Chemistry. She was always accommodating. Heidi's schedule was flexible to work with my daughter's schedule. Heidi had a great way of explaining the material so my daughter was able to achieve success.

Chemistry is not my strong suit and I was struggling when I got in contact with Heidi. She was able to simplify and clarify the structures and mechanisms in a way that made sense to me. She is the only reason I was able to pass this course and I greatly appreciate her availability and knowledge.

Heidi is really awesome. She's so patient and was very willing to work with my schedule. She was also really easy to get into contact with via email or by phone. She definitely helped me grasp concepts in a way I could never have accomplished on my own. Thank you Heidi!!
- Molly B. from Phoenix, AZ
Heidi is very knowledgeable and came prepared to work on the Chemistry topics my son needed to focus on. She was patient when explaining concepts, even if she had explained the same concepts the session before. She left homework expectations after each session and also left the answer keys with me so I could help in between. She took the time to provide session summaries for me so I could help ensure my son was getting everything he could from the tutoring time. I?d recommend Heidi as a great tutor for focused and driven students who want to exceed!
- Deanne H. from Mesa, AZ
I would meet with Heidi about one to two times a week and it was always a great learning experience. I was determined to work hard and came prepared with questions for her, which she gladly helped me through and worked with me on. I ended up getting a good grade in the class because of her help! Definitely getting tutored by Heidi next semester and would recommend her to ANYONE wanting to succeed! Thanks Heidi!

I really don't like or understand chemistry. I had to take the first part of Ochem twice and wouldn't have passed it the second time without the help from Heidi! I only wish I had found her earlier, maybe I wouldn't have had to take the class again! I felt like I didn't know anything and after only two sessions with Heidi I was ready to take my ACS final! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for help in Organic Chemistry!
- Nicole P. from Tempe, AZ
Heidi is an amazing tutor. She is a General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry Whiz. She genuinely cares about her students and really tests your knowledge. She also helps simulate testing conditions so you really know where you stand for any type of major test. I would highly recommend her for all your chemistry needs.
- Paul B. from Glendale, AZ
Heidi is a great tutor. She will take the time to work with you through the problems that you need help with. She will also provide worksheets of her own to help you get more practice. Heidi has worked with my schedule very easily, and has found times to help me that worked for both of us. She is very patient and understanding of your situation. I found that my test grades improved quite a bit after working with her. Definitely worth the price!
- Kirsten H. from Tempe, AZ
Heidi was amazing! She was able to help me pass Organic Chemistry. If it wasn?t for her, I would have had to repeat the class. She was able to reword the information into easier terms which allowed me to understand. She was always available for my schedule and would return all my emails and phone call quickly. If you want to pass the first time, I would choose Heidi.
- Sabrina L. from Mesa, AZ
Heidi is extremely well versed in Chemistry. She seems to be best suited for students that find it easy to work following the text book in a structured way and willing to do homework to keep up with the instructions. Overall I think she is a very good tutor. Since the tutoring is in a library versus home, it can be inconvenient for folks not having a vehicle.
- Bimal D. from Chandler, AZ
Heidi made her tutoring style match my learning style, which led to a very effective tutoring session. She explains concepts thoroughly and clearly, doesn't move too fast, and made sure I worked out problems on my own.
- Andy H. from Phoenix, AZ
I've been going to Heidi for the past year with my O-chem and she's always very helpful. Very flexible schedule and explains things very well. Great tutor!
