I'm an advanced degree holding chemist who has spent considerable time in both academia and industry. In industry I have developed paint, cleaning products, aerosols, and lubricants. I have been teaching college level chemistry for nine years as an adjunct professor. I'm also a certified high school science teacher with 3 years experience teaching chemistry and general science. I have taught and tutored very basic courses in physical sciences to very detailed courses in chemistry and physics. My strengths are explaining difficult subject matter to those who have either never taken chemistry or to those that can't remember it.
