I was a part time instructor at S.F. State University for one year. I love teaching but stayed for only one year because the pay for technical writers in Silicon Valley was much higher and so I returned to that field. I have published 233 articles as a writer and editor for a website and have 99 fans who have asked the company to notify them by email every time I publish a new article or discussion comment at that site. I have a passion for helping people better understand political economics and always answer every question that is posed in the discussion that follows my articles. Before I received my M.A. degree in social science (interdisciplinary studies), I worked in the field of automated machine design in Silicon Valley, Berkeley and elsewhere. I designed the jukebox mechanism for the optical disk player that was installed in the Library of Congress in the 1980s. I love to teach math through algebra, trig, geometry, and statistics, and also the mechanics section of physics. I also love to teach English composition, grammar and good writing skills, as well as any aspect of psychology, a subject in which I have a B.A. degree. I also love to teach any aspect of social science, a subject in which I have an M.A. degree. I have completed all courses in the mechanical engineering curriculum at Oregon State University, through the first semester of the third year of study. This includes mechanics of materials, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, chemistry, statistics and three semesters of engineering physics.

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.

CBEST

I have passed the CBest test.

I have a B.A. and M.A. from S.F. State University.

I won a scholarship to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy.

I was an instructor at S.F. State University for one year.

Drawing

For 15 years I worked as a draftsman in the field of mechanical engineering and design. For five of those years I used AutoCAD. I'm also an accomplished sculptor and builder of furniture and boats and can submit photographs of my sculpture, lamps and furniture.

Mechanical Engineering

My first year of mechanical engineering course work was completed at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. The first semester of my third year of this course work was completed at Oregon State University. Various science, math and engineering courses I've taken include fluid mechanics, mechanics of materials, physics, chemistry, physiology, statistics, calculus and thermodynamics.

Social Studies

I have an M.A. degree in social science (interdisciplinary studies) and have been a prolific writer and editor for OpEdNews.com for several years. 233 of my articles have been published and discussed there and you may view a summary of each of them, as well as see a link to each of them that will take you to that specific article, which you can then read or print out. Most of my articles have been listed among the top ten in terms of reader popularity (as measured by reader page-hits per hour) and I have 99 fans among the readers of OpEdNews, each of whom has notified this web site that they would like to be contacted by email each time I post a new article or comment.
