My teaching method is to break down concepts into subtopics and then tackle each subtopic. I also like to be visual and tactile using drawing and manipulatives to teach. As a teacher, I used a project-based learning model. I also like to use humor when teaching.
I taught Pre-AP and AP Chemistry, Physics, Environmental Science, Food Science, and Biology for 9 years. I taught and tutored approximately 1200 students and I had a 90% pass rate; many years above 95%. I have helped students get into many prestigious colleges like Westpoint, Cal Tech, and MIT.
