Meet the Tutor:

Hello everyone! Welcome welcome. My name is Melinda, and I am the main HeyChemTutor here at HeyChemistry! I started this website as a passion project to store all of the information I accumulated while learning and tutoring in the real world.


I’m currently a student in OR, USA. I’m majoring in marine biology and minoring in chemistry, and I love my work.

I used to dread chemistry class because none of it made sense. That all changed with some amazing educators that I owe my many many thanks to.

If I’m not found over a piece of homework, I’m usually on the internet or I have my nose in a book.

My favorite topics of chemistry include the organics and biochemistry – seeing as I really need them for my career.

The most difficult topic for me to learn while I was studying was those involving enthalpy and entropy.

Seeing as I am a student first, sometimes I don’t make timely updates. I do my best, but as we all know, our own grades come first. Thank you for all the patience!

Either way, I’m always looking forward to improving my content and quality!


All of my undergraduate chemistry instructors are the reason I’m here and have the content I have. I try to glean as much as I can from as many resources, but it gets difficult. So please, this site is really because of them. Please explore their own individual pathways, each instructor brought something interesting and unique to the table. Thanks to them and the rest of the OSU chemistry department for their instruction and support.
