Chem 1405 (Intro), Chem 1411 (Chem I), CTEC 1441 (Analysis I)


Penny Beatty graduated from Abilene Christian University with a Bachelor’s of Science in chemistry. She worked in research for the chemical industry for six years. She later spent seven years teaching high school chemistry. Her husband, Daryl, is an Assistant Professor in the Biology Department here at BC; they have two children, Carol and Scott, both graduates of Texas A&M. “I enjoy helping students to make sense of chemistry and also enjoy helping them to get to that “aha!” moment as they are working problems and trying to understand the details of the subject. I especially enjoy explaining atomic theory and how it relates to the order of the periodic table and chemical bonding. I also love to explain those pesky details of naming compounds! At Brazosport College, I enjoy meeting individual students to know how taking chemistry fits into their goals.  Please call me if you need help with chemistry!”


Carol Gaetke​ 


979-236-5030 (Meet in HS206)​


(Chem II), CTEC 1441 (Analysis I), CTEC 2431  (Analysis II)


Carol Gaetke began working in the Student Success Center in January 2005 as a math and physics tutor and transitioned to being a chemistry tutor as the need arose.  In her previous life, she worked as a pharmacist, a home-school mom, and a high school math and chemistry tutor. In her spare time, I she volunteers with Habitat for Humanity, plays oboe with the Brazosport Symphony, spend time with my husband, hikes, camps, and rides her motorcycle. “I love math and chemistry, but it was not always so.  In grade school I really struggled with reading, math and science (I had recess, lunch and gym down pat however!)  It was because of some great tutoring and support that I emerged from my cocoon and took off flying academically.  I tutor because I hope that I can give that same inspiration to others!”​​​
