About Alan

I am a Chemistry teacher that has very strong knowledge of Chemistry, as well as 20 years of experience in private industry. This allows me to not only teach chemistry concepts, but I am able to teach how these concepts are used in industry. This combination allows me to keep students engaged, which is critical to their learning.

My teaching philosophy is to be agile in how I teach: to be responsive to different learning styles (e.g. verbal, aural, or kinesthetic), different cultural backgrounds, etc. I also am very reflective. This combination allows me to know the best way to teach every student.

I finished my chemistry degree with American Chemical Society certification, which is a testament to the rigor of the program I majored in. I also earned an award from Praxis, the organization that administered the qualification tests for teaching students in Minnesota. I scored in the top 15% of all students taking the chemistry content test, over the current and previous three years.

I have very strong writing skills. My knowledge of grammar, punctuation, vocabulary, and spelling are also very strong. I have a unique ability to teach reading comprehension and literacy skills, such as teaching themes of short stories/novels, identifying protagonist/antagonist, the nature of conflict in literature (person vs. nature, person vs. person, person vs. self). This combination allows me to teach a wide range of English skills.

Please contact me if you have any questions about my background and credentials. I am sure you will find that I am a patient, effective teacher who will help you succeed in your studies.
