Donald is a Chemistry teacher and tutor with over 10 years of experience, and supports students at all levels (through AP). He also tutors students in middle school science. In addition to teaching, he has an extensive background as a Research Assistant and Research Scientist (including for a dental materials company), and has published and presented a large number of journal articles.
Donald says, “I love to write and read science fiction short stories, imagining the incredible future that the next generation will create. At its best, teaching helps students become inspired about their future, and that inspires me as well. Along with writing, I enjoy traveling, having most recently visited Europe with my fiancé, and having explored the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil, Columbia, and Bolivia.”
