Ph.D. chemist that likes to help you learn chemistry, I have been told I have a gift of making complex ideas easy to understand and grasp. Science didn’t come easy to me and I had to learn ways to teach things to myself and this helps me explain things to other students. My education started a Wheeling Jesuit University where I received my undergraduate degree in Chemistry with a Minor in History. Then I went to Louisiana State University for my Ph.D. in chemistry (Physical Chemistry or Chemical Physics) and did my postgraduate work at the University of Colorado. I have always enjoyed working with students at any level, in just about any chemistry course. I have been a TA in Organics Chemistry and have taught Inorganic Chemistry.
Mountain biking and snowboarding are passions of mine. My style of teaching is like when I take someone new on the trail or slopes. Everyone has a first day and everyone can use some help getting a new skill. Those skills could be riding a rock garden or learning the tricks of the Periodic Table.
