It takes a great student to be a great teacher. My approach to teaching is to first understand the needs and strengths of my students. Communication in my classes has always been a two way street and my goal in any class is not to instruct but to educate.

I have had teaching experience, instructing high school graduates and students preparing for college as well as those taking various qualifying aptitude tests. I have been through undergraduate and graduate school and I really understand and like instructing in my field.

Organic Chemistry

I have had a long history of experience both studying and teaching organic chemistry. I studied organic chemistry in high school and likewise had at least seven undergraduate classes in organic chemistry and advanced organic chemistry en route to my bachelor's degree in biochemistry. I have taught high school students the rudiments of this branch of chemistry.

Organic chemistry had been the foundational subject in my higher education and work experience. Teaching this subject therefore comes naturally to me.
