  • 2015 AP Chem Workshops

    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.

  • 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 me 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!
