We’ve made it to our final episode in our AP science teacher interview series, and I’ve saved the best for last! When I sent out a survey several months ago, y’all requested to have him make another guest appearance, so here he is, Zach Matson! Teaching AP Chemistry for several decades, he has gained so much experience, knowledge, and tips that are going to help you be successful in teaching in your classroom.

Even if you teach another AP science discipline, Zach first shares general tips and advice for any teacher, which revolves around unit exams, practice AP exams, when and how often to use FRQs, and which resources give you the most bang for your buck. As we get further into discussing AP Chemistry content, Zach discusses even more valuable information. He has a wonderful outlook on which content you should cover, how to balance the content, exams, and labs, and still have enough time for review. His ideas and outlook on the life lessons students can get out of the class are refreshing and will help you feel less stressed about the final AP exam.

Zach has always been so passionate about his philosophies in teaching and how he delivers content to his students, which is why he has so much to share and offer other AP Chemistry teachers or just teachers in general. There’s no question why he’s the most requested guest and I know that whatever subject you teach, AP or general, you will be left with a new perspective and ideas to implement in your own classroom!
