About Terry


Bio

I prefer student-centered approach over instructor-centered approach. Learning should be fun and personal. I love teaching. I started tutoring kids and teaching them origami during my high school years. I tutored physics and chemistry at the learning center in a college during my undergraduate years. I graduated with a PhD in chemistry. Currently, I am obtaining a Masters in education. I have taught for 10+ years in different schools, including some of the largest and top-ranked...

I prefer student-centered approach over instructor-centered approach. Learning should be fun and personal. I love teaching. I started tutoring kids and teaching them origami during my high school years. I tutored physics and chemistry at the learning center in a college during my undergraduate years. I graduated with a PhD in chemistry. Currently, I am obtaining a Masters in education. I have taught for 10+ years in different schools, including some of the largest and top-ranked universities.

I focus on conceptual learning and understanding over procedural learning (aka plug-and-chug). Currently, I'm attending a masters degree program in instructional design and technology to help improve my teaching methods. Between my teaching tenures, I was a public test editor for a well-known testing company. I was in-charge of a very high profile entrance exam.

BSc, PhD in chemistry, 10+ year higher ed teaching experience, public test editor and content consultant. Reviewed and published public exams.
