I have a BS in chemistry and an MA in teaching. I taught public high school for 4 years. I have a vast array of teaching strategies and I understand the needs for different learners. I am also familiar with how chemistry tests are constructed and what specifics to look for when studying.
I am a guitar player of 10 years specializing in Gypsy Jazz music, style of Django Reinhardt. I've played professionally among many of the top players in NYC. To name drop a little on some of the world class guitar players of this style in the city that I've played with: Stephane Wrembel, Olli Soikelli, Darius Scheider, Roy Williams, and Tim Clement. Learning with me will not focus on reading music, but on emphasizing on time and ear training. I've been a student of Stephane's for about 8 years now, and I think I have quite a lot to share.
I took organic chemistry 1, organic chemistry 2, and advanced organic chemistry in university.
