About Me

As a former high school chemistry teacher, I’m dedicated to helping students succeed in introductory college chemistry. I’m particularly interested in first year students and how study skills need to evolve to succeed in college chemistry. I am passionate about helping students to understand why chemistry is relevant to their chosen professions, such as nursing. My students do active learning – constructing their knowledge through guided inquiry activities and honing their skills with practice problems.
