Hi Avery,

 

I'll let this experience motivate me, rather than discourage. Just have to be more dilligent next time.

 

Thank you very much!

 

Regards,

Emma

 Just out of curiosity- do you have a background in chemistry? If you do, I'm just wondering why it took you so long to answer some mid-level questions?

 

If you don't have a background in chemistry, or any formal training in the subject, what made you think you could do this job? Not attacking you- just asking.

Hi Reinier,

 

Appreciate the curiosity.

 

Yep, I can say I have more than sufficient background.

 

It wasn't the answering part that took long. That was the easiest part. It's the explaining part that ate most of the minutes.

 

I was "tasked" to pattern my explanations after a platform that the client provided. For most part,  each explanation (in my opinion) was substantive enough to be consumed in an actual classroom lecture.  All using my own words. Only used the net as a 2nd layer of quality check (the first layer involved physical books), and when I needed a photo which I initially attempted to draw using MS Paint, but ended up "borrowing" from an online resounce (which I cited accordingly).

 

Add to that is the challenge of being able to explain mid-level Chemistry concepts such as and calculations in thermodynamics, electrolysis and half reactions to the target audience who have little to no prior background, as I was told. There were a lot of oohs and aahhs as I read and re-read, and naturally, there was a number of tweaking done.

 

Cheers.

Emma,

 

I think you are well out of it. It also seems as if the client is asking for course work to be done. Academic cheating is another Upwork violation.

 I agree with Nichola that you are well rid of this "client". It just does not make sense to answer the questions on the level you described for the benefit of people that won't understand what you are talking about. Its' a pity about the time you spent on this, but take it as a lesson in how some clients camouflage academic fraud.

Hi Jennifer,

 

The profile looked so legit, though. And the hiring history, too.

 

But, yes, hope I'm the last one to fall for that job.

 

Many thanks!

 

Emma
