I am passionate about science and I believe everyone can learn science and have a positive experience doing so. My teaching and tutoring is concept based - I want students to trully understand the science and where it comes from. I don't favor rote learning or "memorizing the equations". Building upward from the basics creates learning and understanding that lasts. I am a career educator that loves helping people learn!
I have 29 years of teaching experience in both public and private schools, 9 years teaching middle and high school, 20 years teaching high school. I taught mostly chemistry and AP Chemistry, but also taught earth science/geology, astronomy, biology,conceptual physics, and general physical science. I have taught in Massachusetts, California, and Maryland.
I have an AB degree from Brown University in Geological Sciences, and much graduate level learning in education as well as sciences. I have an an Advanced Professional Teaching Certificate in the state of Maryland.
I love helping students to learn and to learn how to learn. I am passionate about science and I love when I see my students picking up some of that passion. It means they want to learn more science!
Science is understandable, interesting and is the key to understanding the world around us (and within us)!
