I am a former university chemistry professor with several years experience in teaching chemistry to incoming freshmen with severe problems in learning the basic topics. I am also trained in English literature, history and mathematics up to advanced calculus. I am very interested in civics also and love to learn more about the founding of our country and the structure of our national and local legislative components. I am active in health improvement as I am now training to teach physical therapy. My graduate work in chemistry involved teaching at a basic level for chemistry and mathematics, and also involved energy research. I enjoy the challenge of helping students understand any of these subjects at the high school level within the curriculum assigned by their teachers, as well within the variety of applications so necessary for success in many fields of science and engineering. I believe the discipline to learn the complexities of chemistry forms a solid basis to train the mind for analyzing problems of any kind. I have found it to be the case in my own studies. Challenged to apply high level mathematics in graduate school to my love of the topics of chemistry, I accepted and solved a chemistry math problem that had stumped many scientists for over 70 years. It is a pleasure for me to share my “secrets” of success in science with the next generation of students, whatever their academic goals.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chemistry

I am highly qualified to teach chemistry having tutored the subject for several years as a student and also, teaching the subject as a college lecturer. I have managed and instructed university chemistry laboratory both as a graduate student and for over nine years at the freshman level while employed at the same time as lecturer. Also, I have an advanced degree in chemistry (Ph.D. LSU 2001.)
