I have a PhD in chemistry from UC Berkeley and was a math minor as an undergraduate at U. of Illinois. However, I have worked professionally in my whole career as a software engineer. Most recently I was a senior software engineering manager at Yahoo. I have always enjoyed teaching and mentoring. My experience includes 3 years as a TA at Berkeley, tutoring my 2 children (now grown) in math and chemistry when they were at Berkeley High, and mentoring and guiding software engineers throughout my career. I have the ability to relate to individuals having various levels of experience. I look forward to working with you.
