Bio

I am a chemistry professor specializing in college/university general chemistry, all levels of high school chemistry and AP Exam preparation.
One of the greatest challenges in learning and teaching chemistry is to make it interesting easy to understand. In my teaching, I don't just pass on information and skills, but also enthusiasm for chemistry. I work with students with different experiences, backgrounds, learning capabilities, and interests.

I am a chemistry professor specializing in college/university general chemistry, all levels of high school chemistry and AP Exam preparation.
One of the greatest challenges in learning and teaching chemistry is to make it interesting easy to understand. In my teaching, I don't just pass on information and skills, but also enthusiasm for chemistry. I work with students with different experiences, backgrounds, learning capabilities, and interests. I view each student as an individual and honor different learning styles and abilities.
I have been a full-time chemistry professor for 17 years. I developed my passion for teaching in graduate school and it continues to this day. As a faculty member at a community college, I devote my time to working with a great variety of students. I am able to adjust my teaching style to the needs of all my students.
I work with college students from community colleges, liberal arts colleges, and major research universities. I also work with all level high school students including honors and AP. I have many success stories including students who struggled in honors chemistry and improved to the point where they decided to take AP chemistry. Many of my students receive academic achievement awards in chemistry at their high schools and score 4 or 5 on the AP exams.
Contact me if you want to learn and understand chemistry. I can make it easy and enjoyable. I tutor in person and online depending on your needs and location. Let's make sure you can walk into your classroom with confidence and walk out with a smile on your face and an excellent grade on your exam!

Clear, concise instruction and very understanding of the student

Margaret quickly targeted what my daughter needed the most help with. She was able to clearly explain the work. My daughter has development confidence in chemistry class. Best of all she responds to my emails quickly!

Johanna, 7 lessons with Margaret

Knowledgeable teacher providing great explainations

Margaret is not only knowledgeable but also capable of conveying her knowledge in a digestable way. A great educator who cares about a student’s success. Highly recommended.

Organized and Interactive Tutor

Margaret is one of the most helpful tutors I’ve ever had. She's always prepared. We spend each lesson thoroughly running through her powerpoints as she asks questions to make sure that I’m following along. With her, I’ve been able to raise my average in AP Chemistry from a B to an A. Thank you Margaret !

Natroya, 9 lessons with Margaret

Excellent tutor

I really appreciate how much Margaret was able to help my daughter understand several AP chemistry concepts. She was able to quickly foster a positive learning environment that helped my daughter feel comfortable asking questions. We will seek out her expertise again.

Excellent tutor!

Margaret has been tutoring my son in high school Chemistry for a couple of months now. We have seen his grades go from D's to all A's and B's. They prep for test and quizzes together as well as work on homework as needed. He feels much more confident in his learning and it shows!

Great experience!

My grade in Basic Chemistry has improved by leaps and bounds this semester. This tutor patiently waited for me to do the calculations and helped me through each step! Thank you!

Very knowledgeable and patient!

Margaret helped my daughter who is in honors Chemistry with anions, and cations and how to name compounds. She was very patient and gave her a lot of practice examples to make her feel confident for her test tomorrow.

Very knowledgeable and helpful

Margaret helped me understand concepts in Chem 1 (college) that I was having difficulty with. She was able to present the information in a way that made the material understandable.
