I am knowledgeable in all areas of natural science and math. I studied at Cornell University in Ecology (Natural Resources). I have a BS degree in physics. I worked at Stanford University, Memorial-Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NYC and Cedar-Sinai Cancer Center. I have worked in engineering, computer science, bioinformatics, medical physics and more.

I am very patient and can easily adjust to your level of understanding. I can help you learn details but also connect the dots to make learning easier.

I have been the manager (volunteer) at my daughter's old elementary school garden for the past 5 years. I have a daughter in middle school and one in high school.

I tutor in all aspects of gardening and horticulture including landscape design, soils, fertilizers, composting, edible gardening, native plants, water-wise plants, indoor plants and more. I will help you choose the right plants for your yard or help you evaluate what you have and suggest ways to make your yard look great.

I work full-time at a nursery/garden center as a plant sales professional helping customers solve their issues and see great results. I also do consulting for schools wanting to do gardens on campus. I love plants and teaching.

I like to meet at the local garden center so we can pick out plants or will travel to your home to do a walk through. I enjoy teaching very much and want you to have success with your plants and be happy with your yard.

Physics

I have a BS degree from Stony Brook University and graduate studies in medical physics. I have worked in engineering and computer companies as well as cancer hospitals. I have a deep knowledge of all types of science and math.
