I teach Introductory and general Chemistry at a community college. I have taught for about thirty years. I not only teach chemistry, I also teach how to learn chemistry efficiently.

Ten to fifteen students visit my office weekly to get help. I engage in hundreds of tutoring hours every year. I have taught prospective tutors how to tutor chemistry., I have received three grants to determine the nature of obstacles in learning and improve student success. I received the Most Motivating Teacher award of the math and Science Division of my community college in 2012.

I know how to address student misconceptions about learning chemistry and help them overcome obstacles in learning.
I wrote about 100 pages long Introductory Chemistry study guide containing discussion, examples, and assignments. I use this guide to tutor introductory Chemistry. I give homework from the study guide. I help students construct a solid foundation of chemistry.
I am in the process of writing a study guide for the first 10 chapters of the General Chemistry courses (the Advanced Placement course.)

I have many quizzes and exams in stock. I use them to help students improve their test preparation and test taking skills.
I teach chemistry and how to learn it effectively, how to prepare for exams, and how to take tests effectively. Thus I ensure student success.
