About Adam


Bio

I am a professional chemist. While my professional interests lie in chemical research, particularly the engineering of polymers, I find teaching to be a very rewarding hobby. I grew up training at a Martial Arts Academy. That school runs on the philosophy; "to truly learn something, one must teach it." Thus, my training taught me not only my love for teaching but the skills I use every day.

I am a professional chemist. While my professional interests lie in chemical research, particularly the engineering of polymers, I find teaching to be a very rewarding hobby. I grew up training at a Martial Arts Academy. That school runs on the philosophy; "to truly learn something, one must teach it." Thus, my training taught me not only my love for teaching but the skills I use every day.

I have been practicing and teaching martial arts for 15 years. During this time I have tutored many of my peers and students in chemistry, physics, and math. In addition to my time spent teaching at a Martial Arts Academy, I tutored Chemistry while at Penn State.

As a scientist I am skilled in the math techniques required by my profession. I received a 5 on the AP Calculus (AB) exam. I am very comfortable with algebra, geometry, calculus 1, and would enjoy the chance to refresh my skills with trigonometry and higher orders of calculus.

My bachelors degree in Chemistry and graduate coursework in Materials Science and Engineering have taught me a strong understanding of general chemistry and physics, organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, thermodynamics, and the analytical techniques associated with those topics.

I am happy to help others grow and enjoy learning math and science as I do.

Organic Chemistry

While obtaining my B.S. in chemistry I focused strongly on organic and inorganic synthesis. This shows in both my research topics and my choice of advanced chemistry electives. My primary research was the synthesis and modification of organic side-groups on Polyphosphazenes. My relevant electives include, but are not limited to, an advanced organic synthesis course and associated lab and multiple characterization and spectroscopy courses.
