Scientist with Master's Degree offering Chemistry and Math tutoring on line.

Methodology

I introduce new concepts directly showing both theory and applications. I enjoy clarifying concepts for students as the questions arise. I encourage students to think for themselves and attempt to work out solutions before I offer help.

Background

I am an analytical chemist with teaching experience at the middle school and college levels. In addition, I have worked in the environmental testing, and pharmaceutical industries. I have volunteered as a tutor and teacher at the Montverde Friends School in Costa Rica. My hobbies include: beekeeping, woodworking, camping and hiking.
