My style is using the pencil and paper strategy, where students get to really write and practice what they read and see. Doing problems and a lot of it is essential for success in chemistry. I focus heavily on understanding the basic principals of chemistry and practicing problems.
I am a very experienced chemist with more than 10 years of experiences in teaching general and organic chemistry for college students. I also work in the chemistry industry, which allows me to related theoretical chemistry to real life applications.
I have a Ph.D. in chemistry and extensive experiences in teaching general and organic chemistry. In addition, I have been working in the chemical industry since my graduation. I am interested in teaching general and /or chemistry at the college level in greater Detroit area.
