I graduated in 1985 with a B.S. in molecular biology and an emphasis in genetics. I have a minor in biochemistry. In preparation for this degree, I took two semesters of calculus, two semesters of physics (w/calculus) and about forty semester units of basic and advanced chemistry including graduate courses. I worked as an analytical chemist, biochemist and engineer for twenty years. I know this subject and can break it down to an understandable level that can be built on. I will get you through chemistry.
In 1988 I finished four of seven courses for a certificate in environmental science and a year later I started graduate school. I finished a master's program in journalism (writing) but never wrote my thesis. I did all of the course but did not get the degree as financial pressures steered me in other directions.
I would like to emphasize that my background and enthusiasm for physics, chemistry, and math as well as English (I used to speak a little French, but I digress). I should also point out that I was a professional guitarist for 40 years and have an extensive knowledge of music and that instrument.
Finally, let me go into my personal experience in teaching. When I was an undergraduate, I tutored nursing students in math and chemistry. Later on while working for Thermo Fisher Scientific, the largest manufacturer of scientific instruments in the world, I taught regular classes in chemistry and engineering to a staff of 280 field service engineers and chemists.
I hope you will find these qualifications congruent with your needs and I will not disappoint on the above described subjects.
