Chemistry Educator, Tutor & Author
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.
I’m taking my AP Chemistry Workshop ONLINE for the first time in July and August of 2014!
I will be using the Canvas LMS, and look forward to taking the course nationwide!
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).
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 I have written for many different clients, partners and publishers.
My work ranges from children’s books, through assessment materials, on to textbooks and article & blog writing.
I am constantly looking for new short, mid and long term projects to be involved with.
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.
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!
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.
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!
Adrian’s books have been printed in multiple languages and have won international awards.
With hundreds of thousands of copies sold around the world and ranging from elementary and middle school chemistry ‘fun’, through to college 101 academic work, they span the full gamut of the junior chemistry genre.
Adrian Dingle is an educator, author, speaker and presenter who specializes in chemistry at the K-12 and college 101 level.
His teaching experience crosses more than two decades, two continents, and both the private and public sectors. As an author, Adrian has best selling books and large numbers of writing credits on his resume, including working for Barnes & Noble/SparkNotes, The College Board, The Discovery Channel, REA, Shmoop University Inc. and many others.
