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!

great

My son reports that the tutoring sessions have been very helpful. He feels more prepared for the upcoming AP chemistry exam.

Monica, 7 lessons with Margaret

Very easy to understand and interactive

I learned a lot this year for AP Chemistry. We went over most units, and I was able to understand them as we did problems out. She explains the concepts well and it made me better for the calculations and other problems. Overall, I felt confident that I did well on the AP exam because of her tutoring.

Chemistry Expert - Patient and Kind

Margaret is exactly the type of tutor my daughter needed. First of all, she specializes in Chemistry, which made me more confident she would understand the requirements of my daughter's chemistry teacher. She is patient, clear, encouraging and has been able to help my daughter very quickly. We send her the assignments in advance and this makes the tutoring sessions extremely efficient and focused. I'm so glad she fit us into her schedule!

Very knowledgeable and helpful to my daughter

She help to better explain to her the complex chemistry she was working on and it helped her to get an A on her last exam. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor for their child.

Knowledgeable, patient and flexible

Test prep for HS Honors Chemistry exam. Was late the night before the test and she was a life and stress saver! Thank you.

Mia, 2 lessons with Margaret

So kind, efficient, and helpful

Margaret has helped me so much. I may have only had one lesson from her, but she is so incredible. She helped me better understand and prepare for my AP chemistry quiz, and I look forward to setting up more meetings in the future. I enjoyed how she was quick to the point instead of spending the whole session on a question. It made the entire session quick yet efficient. It’s the pace I prefer to go to as well. I will most definitely recommend Margaret to anyone who is in need of chemistry help.
