Chemistry Educator, Tutor & Author
My ONLINE AP Chemistry Workshops will be offered again in the summer of 2015. There will be NO face-to-face workshop in the summer of 2015.
The online version of the workshop was delivered twice in 2014 (and for many years previously, face-to-face), and the remote option proved very popular. The course has been accredited by the School Improvement Division of the Georgia Dept. of Education, and attracts 2 PLU’s (Course ID: BA6D02-A8E6).
“I have already learned so much and I have just finished module 4.” – KM, August 2014.
On October 3rd of 2014, the American Institute of Physics announced that my book, How To Make A Universe With 92 Ingredients had won their, 2014 Science Communication Award in the children’s category.
Tremendously exciting, and my sincere thanks go to all that helped with the book.
My accepted proposal outlines plans for a book that links the discovery of the chemical elements to the people and stories behind them, all in a way the will be appealing for a younger audience.
As a freelancer and author, I have written for many different clients, partners and publishers.
My work ranges from children’s books, through assessment materials, on to textbooks as well as article & blog writing.
I am constantly looking for new short, mid, and long term projects to be involved with, and I would love to discuss your wants & needs when it comes to chemistry writing of all types.
My latest book, the 2nd Edition of REA’s AP Chemistry Crash Course, was released on January 15th, 2014.
Fully updated for the new AP exam, you can order on Amazon right now, or alternatively find in at your local bookstore.
The book comes with online access to a practice exam and lots of ‘Test Tips’. A must to boost that AP grade!
Complete with those crazy American spellings for ‘color’ in the paint and firework spreads, the North American release represents the latest of my books making it into a ‘new’ language!
