During 25 years of science teaching at the high school and college levels, I was recognized for developing a unified, "big picture" approach for teaching science. This is a holistic (visual) approach to the effective mastery of traditional chemistry. It reinforced learning of the course concepts by illustrating how they relate to the students' own life experiences.

Specialty areas include general inorganic and introductory organic chemical concepts; atomic structure, periodic table, quantum and chemical bonding concepts; elementary thermodynamics, chemical reaction "gram-mole," "molarity," titration, acid-base, ideal gas, and equilibrium calculations, and more. While my teaching approaches were successful with most students, they were especially successful for those who feared math and science courses or felt little confidence in mastering these subjects.
