Mary S. ...I stress problem solving skills and like to use demonstrations and physical models to explain abstract concepts. For example, I teach molecular shapes using marshmallows and tooth picks that a student can manipulate so see what a molecule looks like and how you could change the shape for various conditions. For the last 3 years I have taught adjunct Chemistry classes at Ursinus College.

Richard  K. ...Not only do I consider grammar very important, but I also find it interesting for its own sake. The most effective way to study grammar is by breaking sentences down into small pieces: clauses, phrases, individual words and punctuation marks, and then analyzing the correct usage of every element making up the sentence. I find diagramming sentences to be extremely helpful.

Patricia L. We use math every day, even when it doesn't seem like it. I like to help learners figure out applications of the math they want to master - and then approach it as a puzzle they might face in daily living. I have taught math in junior high, high school and college, as well as on the job in a wide range of fields.
