About Neil

I am an Educator with three years of past experience as an Adjunct faculty member, and have previously taught Analytical Chemistry, Instrumental Analysis, and Organic Chemistry. Additionally, I have served as a Training Officer in a federal workplace, where I managed the training needs of some 600 employees, and provided numerous training classes in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and first aid. My graduate education and training has culminated in a PhD from the State University of New York in Buffalo, and an MPH in Epidemiology from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. I have strong analytical and communicative skills, and am passionate about inspiring others to obtain their educational and career goals in the natural sciences.

I am an experienced Instructor in Analytical Chemistry, Instrumental Analysis, and Organic Chemistry. I have used and am familiar with a variety of teaching venues, to include classroom, one-on-one, and online instructional forums.

As a life long learner, I have developed a set of essential 'student survival strategies' that I think are indispensable in tackling a variety of demanding subject matters, and I am eager to share these strategies with those whom I teach or tutor.
