I have worked with students for about 10 years, mostly college students however I have also would include other students. Students have different levels of difficulty in chemistry depending on their background. These will be checked so the student simple examples that will help him to gain knowledge and excel in the subject. Students who are studying chemistry at high school or undergraduate or advanced level or MCAT, PCAT, Nursing or any other area are welcome to sign up and work with me.
As a bioengineer, chemistry is a cornerstone for so much of what I do on a daily basis. Whether you need help on electron configurations, balancing oxidation states, ionic equilibrium or anything in between, I've got you covered. It's easy to understand chemistry when you are learning it from an enthusiastic teacher with a deep understanding of the concepts, and that is precisely what I strive to be.
I am a kind, patient, NJ Certified Chemistry Teacher(retired) with 26 years public school teaching experience, including teaching AP Chemistry As a professional teacher, I know how to uncover the difficulties specific to each individual and guide them toward success.
My teaching method focuses on the students completing practice problems after I have explained the concept!
