Physical organic-analytical instrumental chemist with substantial hands-on background in computers & information technology, electronics & instrumentation, physics especially sensors & transducer tech

Methodology

I am engaged w/ the student which means I'm involved in communicating & getting the student to understand, as clearly as can be, what it is they need to learn. I strive to bring the info to them w/ absolute clarity!!!

Background

I am a research professor of chemistry. I can teach instrumentation, separation sciences, analytical chemistry, electronics & computers, physics & math; Especially good with college prep & high school level students & subjects, college undergrad- a patient, creative, engaging teacher.

Rates

Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $20

Details

I will teach at whatever level the student requires.
