While postsecondary chemistry teachers must follow guidelines established by the school and state, they themselves are often responsible for their curricula and periodically administering tests to monitor students' progress. They are usually held accountable for their students’ performance and growth; if students do not seem to grasp the concepts being taught, the teacher may offer remedial teaching or provide extra assistance to struggling students. Methods of teaching may also be modified, and visual aids and notes may be helpful for students' understanding.
These teachers also assign projects and extra assignments to students, as well as grade papers and tests, which may be done in their free time. They may also work with parents to come up with solutions for individual students. Strong public speaking and organizational skills are essential for this position. (Copyright 2019 PayScale.com)
