After working for a number of years as a development chemist and a software engineer in the medical instrumentation field, and serving as a youth soccer coach for a dozen years, I made a transition to the education field. I am certified to teach middle school and high school math, and high school chemistry and physics in Massachusetts, and have taught chemistry, including AP Chemistry, and physics for five years. I have also been successfully tutoring high school and college students in chemistry, physics, computer programming, and topics in mathematics from pre-algebra to statistics and advanced calculus, as well as SSAT, SAT, and ACT test preparation for over ten years. I can help you, too. References are available upon request.
My C++ programming experience, which has been built on both assembly language and C, includes embedded systems and Windows applications. I have developed real-time embedded applications for biomedical instrumentation, and multi-threaded GUI applications for Windows computers. I also have developed applications in other languages, such as Java, Python and Perl, and have used this experience to help other programmers understand the philosophical differences between and the relative strengths and weaknesses of the various C++ programming constructs available for solving different problems.
I have been programming computers, from 8-bit embedded processors to desktop systems, for thirty years. I have programmed in a wide variety of languages, including assembly language. I have studied the role of compilers and linkers (which are now usually hidden from the programmer within the development environment) and the effect that they can have on the machine-language code that the processor actually executes.
The ISEE, or Independent School Entrance Exam, is a test just under 3 hours in length that covers verbal and quantitative reasoning skills, reading comprehension and math achievement for students entering the 5th through 12th grades. Because of this wide range of grades, there are 3 levels of tests: Lower, for grades 5 and 6, Middle, for grades 7 and 8, and Upper, for grades 9 through 12. Because your child's results are scored and compared only with others entering the same grade, your child should not worry about encountering material he or she has not covered before in his or her classes.

Top Notch! Reliable, patient and extremely intelligent. — To my esteemed colleagues and perhaps parents seeking a quality tutor, I have recently had the pleasure of working with Chris (Christopher) J. Chris is an extremely intelligent man who is versatile in skill and accommodating in nature. He quickly adapted to me as a person, and I am a bit effusive at times, and helped me tackle some very complicated graduate level material for a course in advance ...
