Feeling confused and lost in your chemistry class? Or maybe just struggling with just some of the concepts?

Many concepts in chemistry are new and totally different than any concepts previously learned. So many instructors just follow a curriculum, without connecting their students to these new ideas.

Many tutors make it worse, by just giving the answers or pushing the student through the problem.

That is where I am different. My personal goal is to not only drive home the concepts in chemistry, but to provide my students with the problem solving skills necessary to tackle problems on their own.

I completed my undergraduate degree at SIU and my master's in chemistry at UTD. During that time I tutored and taught chemistry. I have been employed in the chemistry related field since graduating UTD in 2003 and can provide practical examples of chemistry concepts.
