My name is Manuela, and I am originally from Italy. I moved to Atlanta in 2001 to pursue my doctorate in chemistry after BS and MS in Italy. After my graduate studies I also completed postdoctoral training at Emory, during which I started developing a passion for teaching. After four years teaching CP, H, AP chemistry at Yeshiva Atlanta High School, I am currently a full-time assistant professor of chemistry at Georgia Perimeter College where I teach Principles of Chemistry and Surveys of Chemistry.
In my tutoring and teaching I make sure that my students understand concepts instead of trying to memorize them. Anybody who has had difficulties in chemistry knows that every problem is different and requires a deep understanding of the basics principles: just knowing the formulas by heart does not help. I am patient, and I am an experienced teacher with an in depth knowledge of the subject, from my students I require seriousness and commitment to learn.
I am also a Registered Yoga Instructor and an ACE certified Personal Trainer.
