My education and work experience has been in organic chemistry and biochemistry. My volunteer work has included Science Olympiad and robotics. I have always enjoyed teaching, and helping students to get excited about science. My experiences with my own childrens' learning issues (ADD, autism) have made me look into better ways to present material for different learning styles.
