I love helping high school and college students succeed in their physics and mathematics classes. The first step is to help the student clearly see the connection between their goals in life and the subject material. My professors at UC Berkeley gave me a Faculty Associate award for excellence in teaching physics to first-year undergraduate students. I have also been a physics teacher and camp counselor at the National Youth Science Camp, a residential science education program for young scientists the summer after they graduate from high school. Students from around the country are challenged academically in exciting lectures and hands-on studies, and have voluntary opportunities to participate in an outdoor adventure program, gain a new and deep appreciation for the great outdoors, and establish friendships that last a lifetime. I have a B.S. in Physics from MIT, and a Ph.D. in Physics from UC Berkeley. I have worked as a R&D physicist at IBM, LBL, and Xerox PARC.
