I've taught Chemistry and Materials Science at the college level as an adjunct professor for 7 consecutive years, and I've worked in a variety of industrial settings as a working chemist for over 25 years.

I have tutored students from grade school through college level, and also trained coworkers in statistics. Here's something a coworker wrote about me:

"Robert made sure that the trainees understood all concepts. During the training, Robert presented himself in a professional manner and showed excellent command on the subject matter. Our group truly appreciated his time and effort."

I will be happy to discuss your needs and how I might help in learning those subjects for which I am certified.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

As a scientist (and student myself for many years) I have a good understanding of the logic and application of level 1 algebra concepts. I've tutored students of different ages and I'm confident I can explain things clearly and plainly to help them learn.

Algebra 2

Algebra is a subject I have a good understanding of since I use these concepts quite often in my regular job as a scientist. While algebra 2 gets into more advanced topics, I'm confident I can explain things clearly and plainly to help you learn.

Chemistry

Professional PhD chemist employed in various industrial positions for ~25 years, trained in organic and polymer chemistry. I have taught chemistry and have tutored at the college level. I am confident that I can explain principles of chemistry to students in high school too - this is when I became interested in the subject and realize how challenging it can be to learn on your own.

General Computer

I have been a computer owner and avid enthusiast since 1982, having purchased the original IBM PC straight out of college that year. I have used MS-DOS, Windows (since 3.1 through current version 7.0) and have been using and building GNU/Linux PCs since 1996. I can offer whatever a student would like to learn about computers from decades of personal experience.

Italian

A full-blooded Italian-American, my father immigrated to the U.S. in 1957, and maternal grandparents/great-grandparents from 1900 - 1920. I studied Italian in college, have visited family in Italy several times and polished my language skills there.

I've done several translations for others, both common correspondence and technical subject matter. I would be happy to engage any students wishing to learn the language or to do translation work for hire.

Linux

I am self-taught in system administration of GNU/Linux, having experimented and used this free operating system since 1996. I have installed numerous LAMP servers, run my own web server for my business, and have been using Ubuntu Linux as my main (and only) computing platform since 2006.

Networking (Computer)

I have set up numerous local area networks (LANs) for both my own home and business, as well as for others. I am well versed in setting up both wired and wireless networks, using routers as hardware firewalls, and high speed switches to share network resources and internet connectivity.

Organic Chemistry

My PhD in Chemistry is fundamentally organic chemistry with emphasis on polymers and coatings technology. My early career in the late 1980's through out the 1990's was based on my academic training in the subject matter.

Photography

I've been an avid amateur photographer since 1977, have studied photography independently with the New York Institute of Photography Professional Photography course, and continue to enjoy digital photography today.

Physical Science

I am a working scientist (PhD chemist) and have a good grasp on the principles of the physical sciences. I'm eager to share what I know with students who need help in this subject area because I have a knack for explaining challenging concepts in an easy to understand way.

Prealgebra

As a scientist (and student myself for many years) I have a good understanding of the logic and application of mathematics and prealgebra concepts. I've tutored students in all age groups and I'm confident I can explain things clearly and plainly to help my students learn.

Statistics

Statistical principles are some of the most powerful tools I use in my regular job as an industrial chemist. I have had the opportunity to teach students and adults alike in this subject matter, and I have even authored a couple handbooks of statistical principles for use by scientists and engineers. While it may seem hard to understand as a student, my former students have told me that they found my approach effective in enhancing their understanding of statistics.
