Profile

My love for teaching and mentoring comes from seeing how ineffective teachers can make students not want to be engaged. Once I entered college, I began to see how effective teachers could make the difference for the students. This example made me want to teach later in life. I have experience working with children and teens from my previous job. This job entailed mentoring both current and former foster youth. I was a foster youth myself as a child and could relate to the youth I mentored. From time to time, they would bring in their algebra or chemistry homework and I was glad to help them be successful.

Early on, I was attracted to the field of science. I really love knowing how things work, especially on the atomic level. My first feat was understanding the periodic table and finding both rhyme and reason to its madness. This understanding led me to majoring in chemistry. With all of the analytical science under my belt, the math just came naturally. Minoring in mathematics made sense because of the critical role the subject plays in chemistry.

Some pH, pOH, [H+], [OH-], and Kw Relationships

When dealing with acid/base chemistry some of the quantities can seem difficult to comprehend and even redundant. Try your hand at some of these relations!

Molarity of Pure Substances

Molarity as well as the units that make up molarity are used indefinitely in chemistry, so fully understanding the concept is crucial. Some people do not realize that the idea of molarity extends past solutions and can be applied to pure substances (only the solvent). It is fun to get the science community thinking!

In-Depth Gas Law Problem

Gas law problems are very useful in everyday life, so it is nice to be able to navigate them and all their possibilities.
