Dr. G is the an amazing tutor. Not only did he reply quickly to my inquiry, but he was very helpful with making sure he could tailor my session with him to be exactly what I needed to know. I am so thankful to have found a tutor that is extremely knowledgeable about Organic Chemistry and chemistry in general. My field of study is fairly unique and Dr. G has been able to show me the fundamentals (and more if I needed it) of organic Chemistry. He is truly passionate about science and is fun and easy to work with!
Gaurav is very patient and really takes the time to make sure you understand what you're learning! He'll go over something multiple times if he has to; so long as you get it! Definitely knows how to tutor college students and tries to find different ways to help you understand something! Couldn't have passed Organic Chemistry without him! The best!
My daughter just started her tutoring sessions and has had 3 sessions. She likes Dr. G very much and I hope that he will be able to make chemistry much easier for her to understand and "click" with her.
