What to look out for in UMD CHEM 231
You should take Orgo 2 immediately after CHEM 231 Orgo 1. Taking a break from the Orgo “mindset” is very disruptive to your chemistry education and you’ll experience a painful learning curve getting back into the electron pushing mindset.
~50% of UMD chemistry professors share a portion of their old exams and keys for students to practice (but not their complete exam set). Only 1 professor shares their complete exam set. Tutor with me 1-on-1 to find out who that is!
High Drop Rate
CHEM 231 is a weed-out class and the department knows it. A drop rate of 20% is common no matter who is teaching.
UMD professors rarely base exam questions off of the online homework system - they are just for extra points. Ignoring them may tank your grade by 1 letter.

Yet, having seen them, students still don’t know how to begin due to confusing wording. Tutor 1-on-1 with me and I’ll help you translate Chemistry into English so you can answer quickly and correctly.
Learn The Source of Exam Questions - ~75% of CHEM 231 UMD professors create their own exam questions. ~25% of professors pull from outside sources (such as textbooks) that students are not aware of. As part of 1-on-1 tutoring, I’ll prioritize your access to resources, so you know which questions to study and most likely tested in class.
