"The main areas I focus on in my teaching are enthusiasm, patience and high standards.
I use (bad) chemistry jokes to boost enthusiasm and reinforce important chemical ideas.
Chemistry can be difficult, and I want students to have a positive experience with
the subject. To help achieve this I will patiently work with students until they understand
the concept. Perhaps most importantly, I hold myself and my students to a high standard
because they deserve my best efforts at making them prepared to succeed in the future."
