I love learning and teaching. Chemistry is something I understand and can help to explain so that you will understand it too. I am currently working at a start-up in Santa Barbara doing R&D on semi-transparent solar cells. Previously, I worked both at Merrimack College (2 years) and Saint Anselm College (1 year) in the Chemistry Departments as an adjunct lecturer.
I was a chemistry student in university for 14 years and then worked in industry for 10+ years on organic light emitting displays, conductive inks, device fabrication, organic photovoltaics, encapsulation, device characterization, reliability, lithium ion battery research & development, cell capacity, longevity and optimization.

Melissa has been extremely helpful with my student in her efforts to provide better understanding of Honors level High School Chemistry. My student was struggling with concepts and Melissa was able to break things down and guide her through problem sets,study guides,and exam prep. With improving grades, my student has gained confidence and enthusiasm in learning chem. Melissa has been flexible with scheduling and replies to communications quickly. Will continue tutoring sessions throughout remaining semester and recommend Melissa K. for all levels of Chemistry assistance.
