I am a PhD graduate student currently studying analytical chemistry at Howard University. I have a Bachelors and Masters degree in Chemistry and have always found science interesting. My first teaching experience started while I was an undergraduate student. During that time, I participated as an executive board member in Howard Universitys chapter of the American Chemical Society in which I provided tutoring services to undergraduate general chemistry students. As a graduate student, I work as a teacher's assistant in general, analytical, and organic chemistry labs. I assist students inside and outside of the lab and grade papers. I enjoy teaching and have found that the art of teaching is being able to draw a mental picture in another persons mind in order for the person to truly understand a concept. The research I do in graduate school involves the study of inorganic complexes that mimic the catalytic properties of metalloenzymes. I enjoy basketball, pool and working out during my spare time.
