Description

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.
Students will need: a notebook (spiral or composition) access to a printer (preferred but not required) glue stick or glue or tape scissors rock or mineral collections (not necessary, but may make class more engaging- doesn't have to be large...even just a few rocks that they've found outside is great!)
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Students have the option of cutting out pieces of paper for their interactive notebooks each week and should use caution with scissors. 

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