About John

I am presently a chemistry instructor at a nearby university. I have been teaching introductory chemistry, general laboratory, and problem solving for the past two years. Previously I was conducting research and development in industry. I have also been doing relativistic quantum mechanic calculations for the past four years.

I believe myself to be a student advocate. My teaching philosophy is to try to make the subject interesting and to use various learning techniques to accomplish this. I believe that proper tutoring requires advance preparation and the use of the subject matter that the student is using. This will require reading what the student is reading in advance so that I can teach and tutor more effectively.

I have the chemistry knowledge and teaching experience needed in the areas of general chemistry and physical chemistry. I also will do the necessary preparation so that I can provide the best tutoring experience for the student.

If you need either general chemistry or physical chemistry tutoring at the high school or college level from a knowledgeable and experienced college PhD instructor contact me for further discussions.
