I base my classes on lots of practice with problems and simplify and explain the math. I'm a visual learner and can work really well with students who need pictures and practice. Chemistry is a hard subject, but I try to make my tutoring interesting, fun and effective.
Retired chemistry prof (PhD from Harvard) with over 50 years experience in consulting and teaching. I have taught chemistry and physical chemistry classes from 5 students to 40 students. I have taught in a foreign language when living overseas and I have taught many classes in diverse environments.
I will travel to various parts of Windward and East Oahu. My cancellation policy is no charge if notified 24 hours in advance, 50% if cancelled within 12 hours and 100% charged if cancelled less than 12 hours before appointment.
