Chemistry Faculty of 13 years with Physics and Math experience offers tutoring in Metro MN

Methodology

I like to do a lot of problem solving in my teaching. This makes it easier to ask students if they know what the next steps would be. That Socrates was a pretty smart guy. I use a lot of metaphors also.

Background

I am a Physical Chemist. I have been teaching for about 13 years. I have a background in both Chemistry and Physics, which often involves the use of higher mathematics. I have tutored all of my children in math and chemistry, and they have done well.
