I have some experience teaching Science and Math in jr. and high school settings. I have extensive experience as a "T.A." in universities mostly in Chemistry Lab, Health Science Chemistry and some Physical Chemistry. These include recitation sessions in which I have worked with students "one-on-one" to answer questions on general comprehension of material as well as working thru specific problems.
My area of concentration has been in Physical Chemistry oriented towards Biological Applications. My specific area is Vibrational Circular Dichroism (C.D.) Spectroscopy wherein I have written a Dissertation on Density Functional Theory calculations of DNA, RNA nucleotides (and how this gives rise to C.D. spectra). This field being a "cross-current" one betwixt Physics, Chemistry and BioChemistry I have a strong interdisciplinary perspective (which is where much new Science emerges from) and try to incorporate some flavor of this into my tutoring. I find that many students respond to such "parallel" perspective well.
