Regents

I hold a Master's Degree in Astronomy from James Cook University, a Bachelor's Degree in Physics from SUNY, Stony Brook and have been teaching Astronomy, Physics and Environmental Science at the college level as an adjunct assistant Professor for 7 years. As part of that teaching experience, I have taught the Writing Intensive Astronomy courses at Queensborough Community College. The WI program is a CUNY initiative that improves writing skills by "teaching across the curriculum".

I have completed various Professional Development courses, most recently the Online Teacher Training offered by Northampton Community College.

I am a former STEP instructor for Suffolk County Community College and have taught and lectured at a number of major Northeast Planetariums.

I am a NASA/ JPL Solar System Ambassador (http://www2.jpl.nasa.gov/ambassador), a
Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society of Great Britain (http://www.ras.org.uk) and an Associate Member of the American Astronomical Society.

Additionally, I am a participating astronomer in Project Astro, an initiative of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific. Project Astro is a program designed to mentor and coach science teachers in the classroom in an effort to raise the bar and standards for astronomy and physical science education.

Writing

I hold a Master's degree in Astronomy, having written an extensive thesis. I teach Writing Intensive science courses at the college level and have received rigorous training to do so. Additionally, I write an online blog and write for an online magazine.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
