What is Chemistry?

Chemistry is the study of fundamental properties, states, and interactions of matter.  For students looking to pursue higher studies in Biology, Medicine, and, of course, Organic and Inorganic Chemistry, taking a high school course in Chemistry is an important start.
Students taking Chemistry – particularly higher-level, quantitative Chemistry classes – will benefit from a solid command of Algebra.
In High School, most students encounter at least one course in Chemistry, though the particular placement of this course in a curriculum can vary from school to school.
We are only able to offer tutoring services for High School courses in Chemistry at this time.
