About Justin


Bio

I have eight years of teaching experience in undergraduate chemistry, including TA experience, one-on-one tutoring, and as an instructor at UNM (2016) and CNM (2016-present). My basic philosophy in teaching is to encourage students to ask questions, especially in the sciences. I enjoy teaching groups of students but feel that I connect even better in one-on-one sessions where instructor/student dialogue is most helpful.

I have eight years of teaching experience in undergraduate chemistry, including TA experience, one-on-one tutoring, and as an instructor at UNM (2016) and CNM (2016-present). My basic philosophy in teaching is to encourage students to ask questions, especially in the sciences. I enjoy teaching groups of students but feel that I connect even better in one-on-one sessions where instructor/student dialogue is most helpful.

In teaching chemistry, which many students find difficult because it is hard to visualize, I try to explain concepts when necessary with "real-world" counterparts. An oxygen molecule is composed of two oxygen atoms and 16 electrons, but it could be visualized as a couple of baseballs attached by two springs.

I also love mathematics! Any experienced scientist could tell you that (s)he uses math on a daily basis, from algebra to trigonometry to calculus to probability/stats. I love games and probability, and I often attempt to mathematically determine the optimal strategies for winning. I use math every day, both in teaching other subject areas (typically chemistry) and in my daily life.

I have a B.S. (2008) and Ph. D. in chemistry (2013), as well as a math minor.
