In addition to teaching 9 years in the high school setting (Chemistry, Biochemistry, Earth Science, Biology, Algebra I and II etc.) I also possess MANY years of practical industrial chemistry experience. I am aware of the skills that today's employers seek. I am a former medic, firefighter, CPR instructor and am capable of positive interaction with a wide array of skillsets. I feel EVERYONE is capable of being educated.

I am proud to be an educator in science and mathematics, but I harbor few illusions that the basic tenets and arcane ideologies of math and science might be retained by most students. I wish to educate through "power of example" -- using math and science concepts as a "road map" to practical problem solving skills. I value the role of facilitator in a student's learning process. I strive to be the best role model possible.

In Webster's Dictionary, "teach" is "to instruct in one's profession" while educate is to "form or develop the character/skill/mind". I strive to be an educator, in the true sense of the word.

Organic Chemistry

I possess a BS degree in Chemistry and almost a Master's in Analytical Chemistry. I have 20+ years laboratory experience with some of that amassed in the pharmaceutical and environmental fields. I have extensive ability to write methods for some very complicated analytical equipment (GC-MS; HPLC; TGA; DSC to name a few). To be successful in writing methods to analyze organic compounds one must have a vast understanding of organic chemistry.

Pharmacology

I was an active medic on ambulance services in several services in MA. and CT for almost 15 years. Additionally, I have taken coursework in phlebotomy, anatomy and physiology, biochemistry as well as MANY continuing education courses in pharmacology as it relates to emergency medicine. Additionally, as a chemist (who has also taught biology at the high school level) I have a very solid foundation in the math required for dosage calculations.
