Class Experience

I am a certified chemistry teacher (grades 7-12) with almost two decades of teaching experience. I have 7 years of experience in the high school classroom and four years of experience teaching online through Outschool. I have also done private tutoring at the high school and college level, taught freshman college chemistry recitations and labs, and worked in various science outreach settings including museums, middle school after school science programs, and science summer camps. From these experiences, I have worked with a lot of different types of learners at various stages of interest, ability, and motivation- from preschoolers wide-eyed at everything in science to high school students simply taking the class as a requirement to college freshmen chemistry majors passionate about the course with never-ending questions. I can tailor my teaching style to fit the learner, and I do what I can to make it approachable by anyone.
Access to a printer is preferred to print handouts, but not necessary. Students can write down element facts on notebook paper or fill out the handouts electronically. Other optional materials may include a 3-hole punch (if putting the handouts into a binder) and a binder or 3-prong folder.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
In this course, we do discuss the discovery of some of the radioactive elements such as radium, which do come with stories of the health issues they caused in those who worked with them. No graphic images will be shown, but the damage that these elements caused to their discoverers will be discussed. If this is a concern, please let me know, and I can provide you with an alternate lecture for that week that does not discuss those issues. 

Links to unlisted YouTube videos will be used to deliver instructor-created course content. This does not require any registration or account. 
All course handouts and videos were created by the instructor.
