"My name is Dr. Tamiika H., Chemistry Professor, wife, mother of five and science geek. Trained as a Bio-Analytical Chemist, my post-undergraduate journey started with the BASF Corporation, leading to a MS in Forensic Science from Michigan State University and a short tenure with the Michigan State Police. In order to increase my marketability and influence, I sought and earned a Doctorate Degree from the University of Michigan. Following graduation, I accepted a position with The Procter and Gamble Company, Pet Care Division. Here I championed and led the first cross-functional method development team that enabled the creation of mathematical models used predict and measure preservation patterns in pet food. A huge win for the industry...BUT...Something was still missing.

In 2014, I transitioned to academia which, I can now admit, is my first-love. Throughout my life, I have always tutored, mentored or taught in some capacity. At Michigan, I earned many honors for my classroom and community involvement to increase the pipeline of diverse scientists. This included traditional tutoring, partnering with secondary education teachers to customize classroom demos, as well as mentoring young researchers in my graduate lab. So why not the University first? Corporate America was enticing because of the financial incentives and reward.

Currently, I am an Adjunct Assistant Chemistry Professor at The University of Cincinnati. I am very holistic in my approach. I teach to all learning styles. I set high expectations for all of my students, who range from ages 16-30. We learn chemistry, not memorize it. My success formula is simply to use science to help them unlock their gifts and passions to pursue a science-based career and most importantly, I acknowledge and reward progress.

Beyond my educational pedigree and work experience, how I connect with students is through a mentor-based learning model. I give each student a unique learning plan that will help him/her succeed in school, on the court, on the stage and more. Study habits, accountability, how to build better relationships teachers, time-management are just a few key areas of focus. The grade is just the product of becoming an overall better student.
