About Nina

I specialize in teaching chemistry to both adults and teens that have difficulty understanding science. I have a PhD in Organic Chemistry from North Carolina State University and completed a 2-year post-doctoral Fellowship in Organic Chemistry at Virginia Tech. I try to make learning fun and to approach chemistry in a way that is both understandable to the student and enjoyable. I am currently employed full-time as an industrial scientist, however I have been an evening chemistry instructor at several institutions over the past 18 years. My current position is in the chemistry department at UNCG and I have taught there for the past 8 years. I have also taught at Bennett College and at GTCC in Greensboro. My area of specialization is organic chemistry. I teach for the joy of teaching. In addition to teaching chemistry, I also teach algebra.
