I have a Bachelors in Chemistry from the University of Rhode Island, and graduate level courses in Secondary Education and Business Administration.
I am from New England, but recently (9/2018) moved to Ocala, where I currently reside. I love teaching Chemistry and believe that ALL students can successfully pass this course. Chemistry is a challenging science, and learning it is not easy. It requires effort, initiative, and lots of studying!
I am always available to any student who needs extra help. Students can see me in the morning (I'm usually in my classroom between 7:30 and 7:45 am on most days,) during CAT periods, or after school on virtually any day. Please allow a 1-2 day notice. I am committed to helping all my students understand the principles of Chemistry, how to study, and if appropriate, prepare them to take either AP Chemistry next year, and/or Chemistry and related sciences when at the college level.
Every student is a precious gift and has value to our classroom. All students are free to talk to me at any time if they are having issues, problems, or simply want to give me feedback.
Thank you and GOOD LUCK!
