AP Chemisty taught by Mark Kernion

Definitely recommend posted by Martin Pouliot on May 27 2020 at 21:58:54

Taking this AP chemistry class has been an enjoyable experience for me. I felt the AP chemistry class definitely prepared me for the AP exam. When I took the AP exam, the questions were not difficult to answer because I knew how to answer them. In general, I put around 13 hours per week into the AP chemistry class. My favorite assignment was the presentations (also live sessions on two different dates of the week) on different topics in each chapter of the textbook. These assignments were helpful in understanding new concepts and in fully understanding of concepts that I had previous exposure to. For the above reasons, I would definitely recommend this course to other students who are willing to work hard.

I would like to say Iloved this course. The workload was not too much or too stressful, and everything was very well presented.
Throughout the course Mr K was always willing to answer any questions I had, and never lost his patience.
This course was exelent for me and If you are willing to put in the effort, it will for you as well.

This is a very well-taught Chemistry course.

Throughout the year, Mr. Kernion teaches all chapters with great detail. At the end of the year, he provides the opportunity for extensive AP review.

The class consists of biweekly live sessions that help solidify concepts that may be confusing. Being actively involved in class discussion during live sessions improves comprehension. 

Other assignments include daily homework, laboratory work, and chapter tests. In all aspects of this course, Mr. Kernion presents information in an organized fashion that makes note-taking easy. Mr. Kernion also provides a clear Pacing Guide for every chapter that dictates exactly what homework students should be finishing every day.

Several times throughout the year, I had questions about the content in the course. Mr. Kernion answers emails promptly, thoroughly, and with polite professionalism.

Succeeding in this course takes hard work and dedication. Sometimes it took me 1.5-2 hours a day to study the content, and laboratory days often took much longer. That being said, I learned so much wonderful information in this course and felt very prepared for the AP exam.

I highly suggest this course to any student with a good work ethic who is looking for a challenging, yet rewarding, Chemistry course.

As a homeschool parent, I know I made the right choice by picking Mark to teach my teen AP Chemistry. Aside from being extremely well qualified and a published author of Barron’s chemistry books, he is a patient and humble teacher. AP Chemistry can seem intimidating, but Mark’s class was very organized, and he made sure each student was successful. He answers every email personally, and your teen will never feel lost. He teaches live classes and sends out helpful note taking documents to use while attending class or watching the recording. My daughter finished his class feeling very confident to take the AP exam.

Mr. Kernion is a remarkable teacher that truly cares about all of his students. His live lessons are very engaging, and his deep understanding of chemistry made the difficult concepts in AP chemistry easy to comprehend. He records his live classes, which is beneficial if you are absent or if you want to review. His pacing guide is thoroughly thought out. I took AP chemistry with him this year, and I have signed up for his 8 Hours Towards an 800 course this summer. I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Kernion!
