Chemistry is such an important part of our lives; virtually everything we touch from the foods we eat to the medications we take, the plastics we use to the colors, the liquids, the energy sources to the need to recycle what we produce - chemistry is a part in all of these processes and the better we understand these processes the better we can steer chemical reactions in a way in which they help and not harm.
As a person who has worked in research I know that getting students curious and exited about chemistry is important but I also know that this is only the first step to achieving improved grades! As a PhD chemist who has taught teachers how to teach chemistry I know that taking students step by step through the details at their own pace, explaining and cross-checking is a successful way to give them the confidence and competence they need to progress.
This is how my I see my students continue to improve and move towards excellence!
