    Teaching philosophy
    :

    I firmly believe that any student can learn any subject and earn a good grade provided the student is motivated, believes in himself/herself, and puts forth an appropriate amount of effort.  I feel it is my responsibility to try and help each student reach their full potential, so please contact me to let me know how I can best meet this goal.  For students who need extra help in my Chemistry classes, I will be available for tutoring during the posted weekly office hours (2nd half of powerhour).  If these times do not work for your schedule, please make an appointment with me for tutoring at another time.  I look forward to working with you and hope this year will be challenging, exciting, and enjoyable.
