I specialize in teaching chemistry to both adults and teens that have difficulty understanding science. I have a PhD in Organic Chemistry from North Carolina State University and completed a 2-year post-doctoral Fellowship in Organic Chemistry at Virginia Tech. I try to make learning fun and to approach chemistry in a way that is both understandable to the student and enjoyable. I am currently employed full-time as an industrial scientist, however I have been an evening chemistry instructor at several institutions over the past 18 years. My current position is in the chemistry department at UNCG and I have taught there for the past 8 years. I have also taught at Bennett College and at GTCC in Greensboro. My area of specialization is organic chemistry. I teach for the joy of teaching. In addition to teaching chemistry, I also teach algebra.

Excellent Tutor — I would advise anyone to select Nina H. as a tutor. My daughter used her services recently, then called all her family members in her home town in Colorado and North Carolina to "Rave" about how wonderful a tutor Nina is. The course Nina had to tutor my daughter in was extremely hard, but Nina made it so easy for her to understand. My daughter has learned so much from her in such a short time. ...
