I hold teaching certification in both New York and North Carolina.  I have spent twenty years teaching high school chemistry; however, I was also a visiting professor at Vassar College for four years and an adjunct instructor at the State University of New York, Dutchess Community College and AB-Tech.

I strive to effectively teach my Standard, Honors, and AP students by knowing specifically what they need in the next level of their chemistry education. My teaching philosophy includes the ideas that 1) a teacher has not taught until the student has learned, and 2) all students can learn chemistry.  I teach at a high level with patience, empathy, kindness, and organization.  My teaching methods involve the illumination of student misconceptions about chemistry, and starting there with an introduction of the truths of chemistry in a manner that relates to the lives of my students in their current world.  I have perfected an array of helpful “tricks” to assist my students in learning chemistry quickly and successfully.
