This guy managed to make me understand how to work with NMR/IR problems when nobody could. He definitely knows his stuff. Just give him topics of the reaction and he will cover it all the way through with you.
Very helpful, well organized and interacted well with my teenage son. I would highly recommend him.
Devin was very flexible and extremely helpful within a very brief period of time. He is very personable, and puts you at ease. He was very good at explaining and simplifying the material.
Devin tutored my son in grade 10 chemistry and biology. He was very knowledgeable and was able to apply the information in a way that helped my son understand. He was very personable and flexible with our schedule. I highly recommend him as a tutor.
Devin was my biology tutor in grade 11. He was really helpful at explaining concepts to me so I would understand them.
I had Devin as a TA last year at OttawaU and he was by far the best TA I've had. He was always available to answer my questions and even organized a review session for our lab section at the end of the term. Super awesome TA!
Devin is an amazing tutor! He helped me with organic chemistry-I and I ended up with an A in the class. He even sent me an e-mail before my exam to wish me luck! Super awesome and very helpful.
