About Orin


Bio

Ever wondered how electron behavior matches the popularity contests you find in high school or how to improve your vocabulary by posting on Facebook?

I help my students to develop a love of learning by enabling them to think critically about the material, develop their confidence, and learn to adapt the material to their strengths in a way that is engaging, accessible, and even fun.
