Hi all, my name is David, and I think you'll find that my teaching style is both comfortable and productive.
While I am currently enrolled at Westminster Theological Seminary in the MDiv. Pastoral Track, I have been working full-time as a Research Biochemist/Biophysicist in the area of Structural Biology. This field of study requires that I have a full grasp of the Biology, Chemistry, Physiology, Physical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry applied to Biological Systems, etc. It also includes working knowledge of mathematics and computer science. I have written a number of peer-reviewed articles for international journals and am in the process of writing others. I am also a non-fiction writer and have just finished publishing my first book entitled, "A Chord in Time." As such, my writing, editing, and language arts skills must be reasonably polished.
One of my distinctions as a Research scientist is that I have chosen to mentor High School and College students in the Laboratory setting as a means of "cultivating career interests." This has proven profitable for a number of students in that it either confirms or refutes what they 'think' their academic and career options are 'supposed to be.' The advantage is that they are now working toward a career with specific goals in mind. I truly do enjoy working with younger as well as older students because I enjoy the interaction and marvel at the results. I am also very patient in my teaching and recognize that there are a variety of learning modes.
I have also been a Teaching Faculty member in which I have taught subjects such as Organic Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Microbiology, Human Physiology, Biophysics, and structural biology. As a result of my background, I do present a versatile teaching skill set and have a highly interactive teaching mode... while not exactly the same as "Bill Nye the Science Guy," it's something like his enthusiastic approach to science and mathematics.
As an added bonus, I do have a multi-user Skype account which allows me to interact with multiple individuals where their subject interests are aligned and also have a 4 x 6 whiteboard mounted in my office specifically for the purpose of teaching.
I look forward to hearing from you.
