Dr. Dixon's Exam Style

Dr. Dixon's exams are very difficult and require more conceptual understanding and memorization than other professors.
Contact me for regular 1-on-1 tutoring for CHEM 231 ASAP, and I can show you concepts that Dr. Dixon focuses in her exam questions.
In the 15 years I've been tutoring her class, Dr. Dixon has created all of her own questions and has never ONCE repeated a problem verbatim on any of her graded homeworks or exams.
Dr. Dixon NEVER follows the textbook. She has "rules" that are different and more in-depth than what is shown in the textbook and grades according to "her rules."

    Why Tutor with Me for Dr. Dixon's CHEM 231?

    • Learn to Sound Smart with Your Professor - Learn how to shine among your peers by visiting office hours often with "smart" questions ready in hand - I'll teach you how and what questions to ask and get the most out of 1-on-1 face time during Dr. Dixon's office hours.

      Protect Your Grade and Sanity - If you look up Dr. Dixon's Rate My Professor page, you'll see that her reviews are emotive. That's because her CHEM 231, CHEM 241, and CHEM 135 are genuinely hard and lots of students struggle - often to the point of failing out. I can help you pass with my tailored tutoring sessions!

      Focus on What's "Actually" Tested - I emphasize topics that I know have been historically tested on in your class during our sessions. I'll reinforce really important subjects that you'll need to know to pass your exams and get your desired grade.

      Pass on the First Try - A lot of students organize their schedules around avoiding Dr. Dixon. This is because she teaches 6 chemistry classes up to BCHM 463, and you're to likely end up with her at least once. I can help you navigate around her course time or help you pass her class on the 1st try.
