TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught high school (lower level freshman) general science, (all levels) physics, and (accelerated) chemistry for 8 years now. I create nearly all materials that I use in my classes myself.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Mostly lecture-demo with a healthy dose of labs and activities.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

B.S. Physics, Villanova M.A. Education, Villanova

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I teach at the high school from which I graduated. It is a fairly poor school (take at look at my labs...) in a lower middle class suburb of Philadelphia.
