I teach chemistry at community colleges part-time and tutor high school students especially AP Chemistry and IB Chemistry. I have a Ph.D. in Chemistry from University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. My aptitude for teaching became evident when I was a teaching assistant, while also pursuing my doctoral degree. I have 5 years experience teaching at community colleges in Texas and Bellevue. I enjoy teaching at community colleges because of the smaller student teacher ratio relative to big universities. At this level the teacher can interact with the students and make a difference.

I find teaching challenging and rewarding. As a teacher I foster intellectual curiosity in my students while also motivating them. I aim towards improving the studying methods of individuals and develop their interest in the subject.

Students can be best guided to start thinking as scientists in their primary years of education. Hence, it is crucial that they obtain good training in their formative undergraduate years and I aim towards achieving that. I understand the importance of student-teacher interaction and the effect it has on the student's progress. Hence, my interest in tutoring.

Chemistry is everywhere and I am hoping to share my enthusiasm.
