About Carol

I graduated magna cum laude from Duke University with a BS in Chemistry and then continued at Duke to earn a PhD in Organic Chemistry. Following school, I worked 25 years in the pharmaceutical industry as an organic chemist researching cures for heart disease and cancer. Now that I'm retired, I like nothing more than sharing my love of chemistry and helping you succeed in it!

My teaching experience began in graduate school where I taught laboratory and problem-solving sections. Outstanding reviews from students led to my selection as a chemistry instructor in the prestigious Duke TIP Program. I also tutored organic chemistry, building a dedicated clientele. Ultimately, demand for my services grew to the point where I had to turn students away. Once into my career, I led teams of chemists and non-chemists in the execution of projects. In that capacity, I had to communicate effectively with everyone, regardless of educational background, to be sure we all understood the objectives.

I teach in plain English without “dumbing down” the concepts and also encourage learning first principles over memorization. This approach builds rapport with students, encourages them to ask questions, and leads to improved class performance.

In addition to chemistry, I also tutor physics (algebra-based), math (Algebra II through precalculus) and test prep (SAT, ACT, GRE).

Please email me if you have any questions.
