I tutor physics because I enjoy helping students learn how to solve physics problems. I have a PhD in physics from Vanderbilt University and I teach physics as an Adjunct Professor at Lawrence Technological University.

After working in the automotive and tire industries for over twenty year, I retired and started teaching part time. I enjoy helping students understand how man has gathered scientific data for developing theories and equations to explain most of the interactions in the universe. While I worked in industry, I also carried out experiments to collect data that resulted in the development of equations. These equations were used to improve the product.
