Dan Able
Dan Able

With a last name like “Able,” you know you are in good hands for help with Chemistry. Dan holds a BS in Physics & Math from Xavier University and a MS.Ed. in Physics Education from Purdue University. He brings ten years of teaching on both the high school and college level to our ChemHelp students.

Dan enjoys spending time outdoors with his family.

Tom Volo
Tom Volo

Tom Volo has been teaching at Kaplan since 2007, with an emphasis on physics (mechanics), general chemistry, and organic chemistry. In addition to his teaching at Kaplan, Tom also serves as a TA and instructor at Arizona State University for several types of engineering classes. He has a MS in Civil & Environmental Engineering.

Tom was the Outstanding Engineering Student of the Year (Greater Phoenix Area Engineering Week, 2014)

Christopher Culbertson
Christopher Culbertson

Chris Culbertson has been teaching General and Organic Chemistry as a member of Kaplan Test Prep’s Pre-Health Faculty since 2007.  Over the last ten years with Kaplan, Chris has helped thousands of students launch their future careers as Physicians, Dentists, Optometrists and Pharmacists by providing expert instruction in the sciences. Chris has a BA in Biological Sciences from Northwestern University, a Master of Arts in Medical Sciences from Loyola University Chicago, and has completed Master of Science coursework in Pharmacology and Physiology at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry.

Outside of the classroom, Chris is an infectious diseases research specialist.

Bridget Dillon
Bridget Dillon

Bridget Dillon is a third year medical student at Liberty University College of Osteopathic Medicine. She graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2012 with a BS in Biological Sciences and Theology. She earned a MS in Microbiology/Immunology from Virginia Commonwealth in 2014. She has been with Kaplan for four years in a variety of test prep roles, including private tutor and classroom instructor.

Bridget is an aspiring pediatrician, and is in the American College of Osteopathic Pediatricians.

James Wahlberg
James Wahlberg

Over the last 13 years, James has been a Kaplan teacher, working with students preparing for medical school and other graduate programs. James has over 15 years’ experience in biotechnology (molecular and microbiology) and academic science labs, so chemistry is second nature to him. His graduate work included the Ph.D. program at the Medical College of Wisconsin and a Master’s degree at Duke University, in which he also obtained a certificate in college teaching. James loves working with students, helping chemistry make sense.

James uses chemistry most days at home in the kitchen.  Protein denaturation and precipitation by acidification?  Sounds dangerous, but it’s really the basis of making yoghurt and other delicious dishes such as ceviche.
