Chemical engineering Ph.D. with with 6 years of lab experience teaching chemistry in Beaverton

Methodology

I believe the best way to learn is through active engagement. Minimizing passive listening, and maximizing active problem solving results in a more confident and proficient student. The job of an instructor/tutor is to assist a student in finding their own solutions, not in constraining a student to follow a set script.

Background

I work in a patent law firm helping clients obtain IP protection for their inventions. I have taught college level chemistry classes in both the US and in China, and have been tutoring chemistry off and on for over a decade. Although I have primarily taught/TA'd/tutored at the college level, I am equally comfortable teaching at any level. Having a diverse STEM background that ranges from oceanography
