Chemist with 30 years experience offering general chemistry tutoring in the Savannah area.

Methodology

I am a experienced scientist with a desire to help general chemistry students understand an apply basic concepts in chemistry. My ideal students are those in high school and early college.

My approach is to briefly explain a concept, let the student relate the concept, and demonstrate understanding. Chemistry is based on building on a foundation, so sometimes one has to go back to understand basic concepts.

Background

I am a retired analytical chemist with thirty years experience in industry. I was a tutor in college, appointed by the faculty, helping new students understand basic chemical concepts.
By working in the industry for many years, I can tie classroom requirements to real world applications.
