I am excited to work with your child and explore the fascinating world of chemistry together! This course is highly engaging. It combines laboratory investigations with group activities and supportive, interactive instruction. This course follows the California Standards for Chemistry and is accepted for credit at four-year universities as a laboratory based science class.
