Testimonials

'I loved how fast paced and engaging Chemistry Edge was. The goal of taking this class was to prepare myself for an Honors level chemistry course, and the fast-paced learning combined with Michael’s enthusiastic/informative teaching definitely helped me to accomplish that goal. Mr. Horesh was a great teacher who clearly knew a lot about chemistry and was very enthusiastic while teaching. This made his teaching effective but he also made learning fun."

'I really enjoyed this program and the teacher was really great. I liked that we got many practice problems to do, and that everyday we would brush up on the concepts of the previous day before moving on. I think this course did a really good job of prepping me for Chemistry class this coming fall.'

'I loved how fast paced and engaging Chemistry Edge was. The goal of taking this class was to prepare myself for an Honors level chemistry course, and the fast-paced learning combined with Michael’s enthusiastic/informative teaching definitely helped me to accomplish that goal. Something that I did not think we would learn about was the history of chemistry, which I really liked. Mr. Horesh was a great teacher who clearly knew a lot about chemistry and was very enthusiastic while teaching. This made his teaching effective but he also made learning fun.'

'The program was very helpful and I feel prepared for next year. The teacher was very understanding and able to work with everyone. Able to review the topic later on. He was very kind and understanding. The class was engaging and a good stepping stone for class next year. He made chemistry fun and I thought I would hate it before. He was funny and able to connect with the students. Made it interesting.'

"I was able to receive a broad amount of information before taking chemistry. Teacher taught at a comfortable pace and taught thoroughly. Was able to grasp a lot of information."

- Student Comment - June 29, 2018

"The program itself is extremely efficient as it covers over half of the high school curriculum. The pacing is set at the speed of the student understanding, so it is fit for all types of kids. The teacher made the class entertaining as well as informative, adding in practice and important labs that were covered."

- Student Comment - July 27, 2018

"I really enjoyed the class and the program. The class was extremely detailed and information filled, and gave me a great look into what my chemistry class during the school year will be like. Coming out of the class, I feel like I have a real advantage going into the school year, as the class was interesting and clearly taught. I liked the teaching style and pace, as we managed to fit almost a full semester’s worth of information into a week while spending enough time on each topic to gain a clear understanding."

“The program was very rich in content, and I learned myriad of information over the past week. The teacher was very informative and lenient, making sure we had a strong grasp of the information. The review sheets we started class with everyday were especially helpful, as they provided a recap of the information from previous days. I liked how we started the course with everyone on the same level before learning new material. In general, I feel that this course was extremely beneficial and will prepare me well for the school year.”

- Student Comment - July 26, 2019

“Chemistry Edge was both fun and intensive experience. The teacher, Nick, displayed both outstanding comprehension of the topics covered and genuine interest in his students. From participating in this one week course, I have obtained a general knowledge of the fundamental concepts in chemistry. I would recommend this course to any students preparing for a school chemistry curriculum.”
