After tutoring through both my undergraduate and graduate school years, I found myself missing it while working in the chemical industry. So the desire to keep abreast of subjects while helping folks succeed quickly brought me back to tutoring and I've been at it ever since.

"Ever since" is now 25 years of tutoring experience! My experience includes helping people from all across this country as well as other countries in Math, Science, Computers and English. If you're at this site, you must be truly interested in learning and I'll be glad to help you succeed.

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.

ACT English

More important than having a Master's Degree in Physical Chemistry, I find myself to be good at taking standardized tests and have been able to pass along my strategies helping students raise their scores. Taking practice exams and getting pointers as you do so make a tremendous difference in scores.

ACT Math

I have a master's degree in physical chemistry which is heavily dependent upon mathematics, and so I've taken math courses through differential equations which gave me a minor in mathematics. Along with using various types of math in my professional career, I've also tutored students in various math courses.

ACT Science

I have a master's degree in physical chemistry because I had to choose one subject for my major. It was my love of science though that lead me to chemistry. This interest in science had me taking many related courses, reading related non-course books and finally tutoring various classes.
