I am a 72 year old male with almost 40 years of experience in teaching Physics. I received a Masters Degree in Engineering Physics and taught for 4 years at the USAF Academy and since then have been an adjunct professor of physics for numerous colleges and universities. I have been teaching physics at Northwest Christian School for the past 18 years and have seen most of my graduates go on to very successful careers. Having taught at both the high school and university levels, I know how to help those students who want to excel as well as assist those who struggle with, what many people consider, one of the most difficult courses. I am a retired USAF Officer spending 21 years in the military mostly as a pilot and staff officer. Some of my fondest memories have come from being in the classroom with future USAF officers. I look forward to serving my community in this different academic effort.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
