    Welcome to Adrian Dingle’s Chemistry Pages.

    Here you’ll find a multitude of resources for the teaching and learning associated with high school chemistry at all levels, and even a little beyond. Some are free, some require a subscription, but there should be plenty of things to keep you busy whether you are looking for worksheets, tutoring or general advice.

    Please excuse our virtual dust as we transition fully from the old site to the new, the completion of which is scheduled for 2014.

    Recently, OwlKids Books in Canada started distributing, and selling, How To Make A Universe With 92 Ingredients here in North America.

    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!

  • Global Online Academy

    The Global Online Academy is an exciting, relatively new venture in virtual education. A consortium of schools, primarily in North America but expanding across the globe, are offering an increasingly diverse and enticing range of classes that can be used for credit at the institution of the student.

    In the summer of 2013 I taught An Introduction to Organic Chemistry in the GOA, which was an adaptation of my traditional, ‘bricks & mortar’, Intro to Organic class. In January of 2015 I will be teaching Organic Chemistry in Modern Life, a new course that focuses on the impact and application of modern organic molecules.

  • Improve Test Scores

    Many students find chemistry a challenge. The often abstract ideas and concepts, coupled with some demanding math, can make any chemistry course a stressful one. Whether students are simply looking to improve a class grade or want to ace the AP exam or SAT subject test, individual mentoring and tutoring can help them to achieve their goals.

    Face to face tutoring with Adrian is now available literally worldwide, via tools such as Skype, Google+ Hangouts and other virtual forums. You too can become an ex-student of mine, like all of the guys in the picture to the right, who found one of my books in the MIT bookstore!
