As an experienced and patient tutor of physics and of math subjects through calculus and college first year linear algebra and differential equations, my great delight is in seeing the "light bulb" of comprehension in my students' faces. These subjects are not as difficult as they often seem to my students before they meet with me. My concrete illustrations and introductory exercises have been highly successful in getting students on track for academic success and in recognizing their own untapped potential.
I have a PhD in physics from an Ivy League University (U of Penn here in Philadelphia) and years of experience as a systems engineer working on ballistic missile defense and other projects for Lockheed Martin. I have studied education as an undergraduate and have taught in a variety of settings (although not as a full professor or public school teacher).
