I have won awards for documentary films and music videos that I directed and photographed. I'm highly skilled with lighting, using tungsten, LED, and fluorescent lighting fixtures.
For the past six years, I have been teaching general computer courses to high school and adult students. I think it is important that every citizen, if possible, learns how to use a computer. Our world, indeed, our society, has developed into a high technology environment and computers are at the core of this environment. The information age has made it almost mandatory to know computers and I have been teaching computing based on the Microsoft Windows Operating System from version 3.1 to Windows 7 system. In addition to the operating system, I also teach the Microsoft Office desktop applications that run on the Windows platform. These applications include Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook.I possess a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a Vocational Teaching Credential from the State of California Commission on Teacher Credentialing authorizing me to teach computer technology.I look forward to sharing my experiences in this subject matter with you and to learn about your life experiences with computers as well.

I have BS degrees in applied mathematics and civil engineering from NC State University. I have many years of experience tutoring college and high school students in math and science. I worked for 4 years at the NCSU Undergraduate Tutorial Center, where I was certified as a Master Tutor by the College Reading and Learning Association. The primary subjects I tutored were trig, calculus, and chemistry. I have also helped high school students, both through Wyzant as well as through family and friends.
I can help with basic and advanced grammar skills for students seeking to improve their reading, writing, and comprehension skills.
Students with Asperger's syndrome may require more behavior management, structure, and understanding to be successful in school subjects. My work as a special educator and counselor has provided insight and experience in teaching students with this diagnosis.
I graduated magna cum laude from Duke University with a BS in Chemistry and then continued at Duke to earn a PhD in Organic Chemistry. Following school, I worked 25 years in the pharmaceutical industry as an organic chemist researching cures for heart disease and cancer. Now that I'm retired, I like nothing more than sharing my love of chemistry and helping you succeed in it!
As a graduate of the Longy School of Music as well as Oberlin College and Conservatory, I would offer the student excellent technical skills together with an appreciation for musicality and listening. I am patient and thorough, encouraging the student to advance at his or her own pace; and instilling knowledge of the classical music repertoire.
I have taken several courses in grammar, writing, and style on both a high school honors and a college level. English has always been a passion of mine and I really enjoy helping others gain a love of and proficiency for writing well. I am a very experienced proof-reader and I was sought-after in college to edit and help re-work papers in both MLA and APA formatting. Topics I typically cover include syntax and grammar, generating and following a thesis, style and structure, and readability. I can help with research projects in a variety of disciplines as well.
SAT reading passages are often very esoteric and confusing. The vocabulary is advanced. I know how to coach students in attacking the passages so they make sense. I can teach some basic vocabulary skills.
