Teaching chemistry has been my life-long passion, and I love sharing my knowledge and experience with my students. As a dedicated caring teacher, I’m committed to delivering a rigorous course that prepares students to excel on the AP® Chemistry Exam while also preparing them for success in college chemistry and beyond. I have taught thousands of students over the years and have watched their successes in both their academic and professional lives. Even though AP Chemistry is challenging, I work hard to make my lessons engaging, interactive and fun. I take immense pleasure in helping my students master and, at the same time, experience the wonder and joy of chemistry.
Mary Ann handles all the many administrative tasks required to keep my course running smoothly. She truly enjoys her interactions with students and parents and responds quickly to a broad range of non-chemistry questions. This allows me to focus 100% of my time staying on top of the ever-changing AP® Chemistry curriculum, teaching my class, answering student questions, designing new labs, recording instructional videos, and performing lab demonstrations. I'm proud of my students for their exceptional performance on the AP® Chemistry Exam year after year! For the past 16 years, they have consistently outperformed the global scores by a wide margin, thanks in part to Mary Ann making it possible for me to devote all my time to teaching.
As a State of Michigan certified chemistry teacher, Mr. Moskaluk taught chemistry for over 30 years at a top-ranked public school. He has been a master teacher with Pennsylvania Homeschoolers for the past 16 years. Mr. Moskaluk received a BS in Science and a Master of Science Education degree at Wayne State University. He has worked at numerous National Science Foundation teacher programs. As part of his Master's program, he worked with the Fairleigh Dickinson University Lab in St Croix monitoring coral reef oxygen respiration rates. He was sponsored by the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation as a Woodrow Wilson Fellow at Princeton. While working for the National Science Foundation's Project Seraphim, he led workshops for chemistry teachers around the country, developed computer software applications for chemistry education, and hosted the International Internet Conference, CHYMNET, for chemistry educators. Mr. Moskaluk has served as editor for the Journal of Chemical Education and has served as a reviewer for Cengage’s WebAssign® chemistry question database.
Mr Moskaluk is an active member of the American Association of Chemistry Teachers and the American Chemical Society
Mr. Moskaluk was recognized as an inspiring, distinguished teacher, and received the Presidential Scholars Teacher Recognition Award in 2003. This honor is awarded to only one hundred teachers in the United States each year. Over the years, many of Mr. Moskaluk's students have also been award winners in ACS Chemistry Olympiad competitions. Unfortunately, President Bush was unable to attend, but Mr. Moskaluk had the honor of dining with Mrs. Bush, the First Lady at the time.
