I am currently not taking on any new students. I began tutoring full-time after retiring from DuPont in 2011. I graduated from Trumbull High School in 1976. I have a BS in Chemistry from Harvey Mudd College and an MS and PhD in Polymer Science from UCONN. I returned to my hometown of Trumbull in 2013.

Are you worried about your child's first Marking Period Math grades? Is your child having problems with Algebra or Geometry this year? Are you worried about the Math section of the SAT's? Do you worry that your child may never go to college and leave home?

For help with Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, GRE, ACT or SAT Math please give me a call. I am patient with my students and have the ability to make complex subjects simple to understand.

Tutoring Locations (Trumbull only):
I tutor students at either the Trumbull Library, a public restaurant or at their home in Trumbull (as long as a parent or adult is present at home). Ask about a 5% discount for being the 1 person out of 100 who actually read this profile all the way to the end.

Tutoring Hours:
Seven days a week from 10:00 am - 8:00 pm.
