In my 44 years of educating students, I have worked in various situations teaching a variety of science and math courses. I have taught in both urban and rural secondary schools, Lakeland Community College nursing program chemistry, private tutoring as well as tutoring for homebound students from both Painesville and Riverside school districts, and working with college students. I have had success in alleviating fear of some of the higher level courses and my students have achieved success in their chosen fields. One young lady had almost a 4.0 GPA but always dropped chemistry. Her dream was to become a doctor; she needed more math and science courses. I worked with Kate for almost 2 years. She became the chemistry students of the year at CSU and has just completed her second year of med school this past June currently doing her clinicals at a Cleveland Clinic hospital.
I have always believed that education the is the way to achieve a successful life and be a productive member of society. My own five children have earned 5 bachelor degrees, 3 masters, 1 PhD in economics, graduation from medical school, and most recently completion of a fellowship at Harvard's Mass General Hospital.
Now as a retired teacher, I miss working with students - especially with the sciences and math. I need to use my knowledge as I am bored with retirement.
I understand math and have always had an easy time doing story problems and mathematical relationships as applied in chemistry and physics. I love doing problems and puzzles.
