Chemistry Educator, Tutor & Author
In June of 2015 I was elected from a field of 27 educators across the USA, as the inaugural, High School Ambassador on the Governing Board of the American Association of Chemistry Teachers. Many thanks to all who voted for me.
I look forward to serving to the best of my ability, to promoting the mission of the AACT, and to supporting high chemistry teachers as I can.
Time for professional development? Need to boost your AP scores? Want the real skinny on the AP chemistry audit, course and exam? Then 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 Periodic Table Abuse Project catalogs the multitude of ways that the beauty and order of the periodic table is abused!
Whether it be symbol abuse, organizational abuse or just plain old ugly disrespect, I’m looking to out everyone.
If you see an abuse then please contact me.
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.

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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
