I seek to bring out the very best in my students, especially in their understanding of science and chemistry in particular. Learning chemistry can be challenging. Teaching chemistry can be challenging. Together, we will navigate science and chemistry together. My teaching experience includes lectures and laboratory at three different college systems, for the past 5 years. I have been married for 27 years and have two boys, one is in college and the other in high school. Both are academic high performers.
