Chemistry Professor in Alameda, CA with experience teaching High School and College Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Analytical Chemistry

Methodology

My teaching style focuses on critical thinking skills and understanding all the concepts involved with a given concept. I strongly discourage trying to memorize information and instead stress the importance of a solid grasp of all the fundamentals of chemistry and how they relate to each topic.

Background

I am a college professor with a PhD in Organic Chemistry. I have experience teaching General, Organic, and Analytical Chemistry at the high school, undergraduate, and graduate levels.

I have 6 years private tutoring experience and 8 years teaching experience. I have experience teaching small groups (1-3 students), small classes (15-30 students) and large lectures (50+ students).
