I have ten years of experience instructing students in AP Chemistry. At this level of study, it is crucial that students can connect different content areas. This ability enables them to perform well on the multiple choice and free response questions on the exam in May. Topic areas such as thermodynamics, equilibrium, and acid/base Chemistry tend to be major topics on the exam. As a result, it is essential that students develop a strong understanding in each of these areas to secure success and prepare for college. Students that have graduated our high school return to visit after taking their introductory college courses and and they meet with success because of the work they have done in my class. With this confidence, they can succeed as the difficulty of the material increases as their career progresses.
