Hi:

I am both a former Member Of Technical Staff (MTS) at Bell Laboratories, and a former Adjunct Professor at Columbia University & NYU. In my long-ago life as a high school student I lettered in Debate, and have used the experience to give presentations to both large and small groups through the years.

My engineering work encompassed both Mechanical & Electrical Engineering, and lasted about 15 years. The professorial work focused on Computer Science, which I taught over a period of roughly ten years. In addition I was a computer consultant for many years on Wall Street, working solely on large UNIX servers & networks.

My personal interests, which are wide & varied (from DIY to sociology to neuroscience), bring a "seasoning" to my lectures, and add perspective & richness to them.

I can only echo the sample letters, and finish by saying I look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Mechanical Engineering

I have a BSME and MSE, both in Mechanical Engineering.

I practiced engineering from 1976 to 1980 as a GMI student (this was not an internship, students were expected to do real engineering when they were at the plant, and we were paid a real wage). From 1980 to 1984 my position was R&D Engineer at the Hydra-Matic Division of General Motors. I took a year off to earn my MSE from the University Of Michigan Rackham School. Following that, I became a Member of Technical Staff at Bell Laboratories in Holmdel, NJ, where I worked from 1985 to 1989.

UNIX

I have 15+ years' experience with UNIX SysAdmin. Additionally, I taught UNIX & (some) C programming for 10+ years.
