My kids tell me I give good explanations. They are in college now. You can be next.

My first job is to understand what you don't understand...then I can tailor what I know to what you need to know. I am pretty good at understanding problems, so that won't take long. And please understand that sometimes folks don't really understand what they thought they did...so we just keep working on the problems until you can work them without me.

I have a good understanding of chemistry and physics and math. I will work on your problem until I can give you a good clear explanation of it.

My background is in Nuclear Engineering, with a lot of time spent working in software for embedded systems. My background is heavy in math, and my more recent experience is heavy in logic and programming and physics. I really enjoy physics, so don't hesitate to discuss those types of problems.

English is my first language. If you need a tutor in another language, I am not your person.
