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.
All videos are created by the instructor and PDFs of handouts are provided. Supplies will be necessary for each week's experiment and a full shopping list will be provided at least 1 week before the start of class. Most supplies are commonly found in the home or readily available at grocery and big box stores.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Most students will require assistance with the experiments. Weeks 1 and 4 both involve heating liquids (water and milk) so caution should be taken to ensure that adequate adult supervision is provided. Links to unlisted YouTube videos will be used to deliver instructor-created course content. This does not require any registration or account.
All course material is created by the instructor.
