Bio

I have many years of experience teaching my own children and other people's children, all through the end of high school. It is a joy and a privilege to help students to understand concepts, to get a sense of the bigger picture of the particular subject, and with due diligence to master the subject.

I have many years of experience teaching my own children and other people's children, all through the end of high school. It is a joy and a privilege to help students to understand concepts, to get a sense of the bigger picture of the particular subject, and with due diligence to master the subject. Teaching is far more than merely imparting facts to the student - it is also about training the student to properly develop study techniques applicable to the subject matter, and to find something in the subject to grow the student's interest in the subject.

I want to help you take your interest and your knowledge to the next level. I want you to succeed at the subject, even if you never take a class in this subject again.

I am an outstanding tutor because of two simple facts. First, I have a PhD in Chemistry, with years of academic, government, and commercial experience. Second, I have been homeschooling my children since 2002, and have taught them a wide range of subjects from early grammar school through the end of high school. My two oldest children are now A students at a top rated college.

I can help you get to the next level - whether you are a grammar school student struggling with elementary science questions, a high school student fascinated by chemistry, or an undergraduate/graduate student who needs a little assist to clarify points from your university/college class. Please contact me to learn more and schedule lessons.
