Heeello!

Thanks for checking out our Patreon page and considering to help support us!

Some of you might be thinking "our"? "us"? Yup! I recently brought on 4 Peer Tutors: Safiya, Lynden, Sally, and Abraham to help me out with tutoring and managing Orgo/Physics Made Easy. 2 of them actually are former students of mine.

But anyways! No matter who you are, a current or former student or just a supporter of what I am trying to do. You can help me achieve my mission of showing students world-wide how fun, simple, and fascinating Organic Chemistry and Physics can be by becoming a Patron!

What am I doing and Why?

My vision for Orgo/Physics Made Easy is to eventually be subsidized by small donations that are as little as $1.50 a month from former students and people who believe in what I am trying to do. This way I can eventually give raises to my tutors, lower my tutoring rates to work with lower income students, and not have to worry about not making enough money to cover expenses. It also will allow me to tutor a little less and redirect more time into completing the Orgo/Physics Made Easy video library for students everywhere. 

I love making videos for all of you, and my dream is to eventually create a video library of all the topics in Orgo and Physics, but Made Easy. I believe in the potential in every student and I'm tired of seeing struggling students unable to access that potential because of financial situations, not so great Professors, or other reasons. They should be able to get the help that they deserve, and reach their full potential. Because when they do, it's incredible what they can accomplish. I was once a struggling and lost Pre-Med student who was feeling unmotivated and uninterested in my science courses. I didn't believe that I'd ever be able to "get it", and now I still can't believe that I eat, sleep, and breathe Orgo and Physics 24/7. Haha

It was thanks to a special combination of amazing Professors (Ken Adams, Chip Celenza, Ed Loechler, Eric Widmaier, Andrew Duffy), Teaching Assistants (Leila Haery, Sanda Zolj, and Tom Sisto), and me working as a Tutor that showed me how to have more fun with science while thinking about it in a more simple and logical way. It also involved thinking more critically and logically which made a HUGE difference. They helped me approach and learn science in a different way that blew my mind!!!

Thinking in this new way made me feel super curious, excited, and most importantly, passionate. Which was just an incredible feeling that I hadn't ever felt in my life. I went from getting grades in the B range to almost straight As for the rest of College. And ever since, through tutoring and videos, I want to pass on the way I think about science to students and to help them reach their full potential as early as possible!

Why am I asking for support?

So I've always joked that my videos are multi-purpose. (1) Educational for college science students and (2) Sleep-Aids for the common-person who doesn't care about Organic Chemistry. (Never underestimate the power of Boredom.)

Surprisingly the second purpose hasn't been strong enough to catch enough viewers to make my YouTube channel sustainable. But anyways all jokes aside. Educational videos like mine unfortunately are not the best way to thrive on YouTube. Even many big educational YouTube channels don't receive enough money from YouTube when you consider the number of people working on each video or the time it takes. It usually takes me ~8-16 Hours (Two Days) to Plan, Film, Edit, and Finalize a video. Also nowadays a majority of viewers having ad-block really reduces the ad-revenue we receive. It's totally understandable though, Ads are annoying, but unfortunately it still hurts YouTube content creators out there. I am grateful for the fact that I can even receive ad-revenue from my videos but it would be awesome if I could focus more of my time on planning and creating my videos.

So I thought Patreon would be a good solution and a win-win for everyone. With a little help from you guys, my supporters and students, I can put more time into my videos and keep the videos 100% free and available for everyone. Because let's be real, paid subscription services are not as cool. Even if it's just 1$ or 2$ a month, if just a small fraction of my viewers donated, it would really help keep the stress bugs away and allow me to devote more time into Orgo Made Easy with less distractions.

What I like about Patreon is that I can continue to do what I love, get to interact with you all a little more, and also give you rewards for helping support my channel and my dream! So go ahead and...

It might not seem like much, but every little bit helps and adds up! I'm also selecting $1.50 because I want it to be a small enough amount that it won't impact you too significantly.

I understand that tutoring can be pricy and not everyone can afford it. But I've always been a strong believer that you should be able to get the help you need, regardless of finances. One day I was thinking about this and this idea sprouted! And now everyone can have the chance to get tutoring with me without shrinking their wallets. 

There will be 2 winners each month who will receive an awesome hour of tutoring with me or Safiya on any topic in Organic Chemistry, or Biology/Physics if you are not taking Orgo. (Please let me know if you are signing up for this Lottery not for a subject other than Orgo.Tutoring will be held either in-person or on Skype depending on the distance between us.
