I am a long-time senior engineering physicist at a national laboratory, with a Ph.D. in experimental nuclear physics from the State University of New York-Stony Brook (now called Stony Brook University). Over the years I have enjoyed interacting with students and other groups visiting our laboratory as well as participating in online physics forums with middle-school and high-school students. I've also been a middle-school science fair judge at local and regional levels for more than 15 years.
I enjoyed these activities so much, in fact, that I decided to broaden my education outreach efforts and start tutoring, focusing mainly on physics and math. My goals are to improve each student's conceptual understanding of a subject along with his/her specific problem-solving skills. Because of my background and experience, I also believe that I can help make a connection between those seemingly mundane homework problems at the end of each chapter in a textbook and the "real world".
I would be pleased to work with individual students ranging from middle-school through college undergraduates as well as small groups of students. I look forward to meeting you and discussing your tutoring needs.
