I have had a career in astronomy which included Hubble Space Telescope operations, where I became an expert in Excel and SQL, and teaching college-level astronomy and physics. This also involved teaching and using geometry, algebra, trigonometry, and calculus. Recently I have developed considerable skill in chemistry tutoring.

My most effective and enjoyable teaching is one-on-one instruction where I can assess the student's level of understanding of math or science and build from there to develop his or her confidence, grasp of the concepts, and problem-solving abilities.

ASVAB

I am a certified tutor in all math topics covered by the ASVAB. In my career I have used and taught many mathematical concepts. I have gone to the military's ASVAB web site and have no problems with any of the AFQT subjects tested, including word knowledge and paragraph comprehension. So I will be very happy to assist with your preparation for the exam. As a scientist, I can also help on some of the General Science extra section.

Chemistry

I have used many aspects of chemistry in my career and understand molecular formulae, moles and such. Since 2010 I have successfully tutored many students in general or PAP high school courses. There are some topics in AP courses such as details of bonds and thermo-chemistry for which I do not have adequate knowledge.

Microsoft Excel

For Hubble observation statistics I used various Excel features such as writing cell formulas, generating plots, and doing import from/export to text files. I still use the formula capability often. I do not have practice with pivot tables, but do have good knowledge of general techniques.

SQL

I gained considerable OTJ experience writing complex SQL queries for a large mainframe relational database. I do not have experience with Microsoft ACCESS. I can help with query strategies and with syntax of most query statements.
