I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Science Education, with a major in Biology and a minor in Chemistry; in addition, I hold a Master of Science degree in Gifted and Talented Education, with a minor in Science Technology from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I also hold a lifetime Teacher's Certificate from the state of Louisiana, being certified in the following areas: biology, chemistry, gifted and talented education, and supervision of student teaching. I bring to Varsity Tutors 30+ years of teaching experience, including ten summers of teaching Honors Chemistry (high school credit) at LSU. During my career, I have taught courses in gifted and talented chemistry, honors chemistry, standard chemistry, physical science, anatomy & physiology, aerospace science, and physics.
My hobbies/interests are spending time with my German Shepherd 'Scout', keeping up with LSU Tiger football and baseball, reading suspense thrillers, and collecting wrist watches and ink pens. I also teach a Bible Study Group called Grace Gathering at Brentwood Baptist Church.
Call me and I'll take the mystery out of Chemistry for you.
