During my time in graduate school, I taught university level general chemistry and analytical chemistry courses and laboratories and have helped hundreds of students understand and apply a wide range of concepts and tools to better understand both practical and theoretical problems in and outside of the laboratory. The key is to build off of what you know and work in steps to understand each problem and how to solve it. I think being able to relate a problem back to what you already know is the best way to understand difficult concepts or problems, and I will use that along with the knowledge and skills I've gained over the ten plus years I have been studying chemistry to help you in any way I can. In my free time I enjoy playing video games, board games, watching college football, NFL football, anime, manga, and sci fi.

What is your teaching philosophy?
If you're having trouble understanding something, the best thing to do is to step back and look at things you do know. Most problems are built off concepts that you're already familiar with - the key is being able to make that connection and take it step by step.
