Type of Students:
Students interested in teaching (all levels) and/or communicating science to others. Students in chemistry that cannot decide what type of career/job might be right for them. Students interested in possible career/job options for chemistry majors.
Number of Students I can Mentor:
17 years 8 months ago
Ideal Mentoring Relationship:
Student should be organized enough to be able to make appointments and keep them. Since I prefer to use email for communication, student would check their email at least once every 2-3 days or be sure to tell me to phone them if that is better for them.
Since I'm there for the student, the student needs to be willing to communicate with me; I'm happy to provide discussion topics.
