  • What is the teacher's classroom experience with AP Chemistry?

    From Wes: "I've been tutoring or teaching chemistry in some capacity for the past ten years. I loved it the second I was in my own AP Chemistry classroom. I've worked for tutoring centers, my community college, UCB, and science museums. It's so fun seeing students understand chemistry!"

  • What is their experience with remote learning and online classes?

    From Wes: "I started doing videos and lessons with students online a few years ago. I loved it, because I got to see a few of my favorite students after they moved to college. Also, I've had the pleasure of teaching with Fiveable for the past year. I did chemistry streams with attendances ranging from 1 to 1,200 students."

  • What advice does the teacher have for homeschool and self study students?

    From Wes: "Be organized. It is so easy to lose material and forget that it even exists. Store your material in notebooks and folders that are clearly labeled. Also, take some time once a week to reorganize things, it will make you feel so much better. Lastly, take hand-written notes. It helps the material stick better."

  • Is taking AP Chemistry worth it?

    From Wes: "Chemistry is so fun. We have the pleasure of learning about what makes stuff (literally things) up. It is a mind-numbing, nerd-filled class. To this day, I still leave my classes wanting to learn more about chemistry and wanting to discuss with my peers and students about how cool atoms are."

  • How hard will this class be and what can students expect from the workload?

    From Wes: "This is a challenging course. Expect to spend a lot of time reading, practicing problems, and watching videos. With that being said, your TAs and I will do our best so that you understand the material and are excited to learn more!"
