About Dennis

Hello to prospective students. Since Jr. High school the drive by natural curiosity to get to the fundamental core of how matter and living organisms are constructed propelled me into both the physical and life sciences. An interest in Math grew out of my underlying focus on physics. I have developed several isolated areas of expertise within these domains: Rectilinear Motion (the curved path that projectiles and free falling bodies follow), AC and Direct Circuits (Ohm's, Kirchoff's, and...

Hello to prospective students. Since Jr. High school the drive by natural curiosity to get to the fundamental core of how matter and living organisms are constructed propelled me into both the physical and life sciences. An interest in Math grew out of my underlying focus on physics. I have developed several isolated areas of expertise within these domains: Rectilinear Motion (the curved path that projectiles and free falling bodies follow), AC and Direct Circuits (Ohm's, Kirchoff's, and Faraday's Laws), Special Relativity with application to Electro-magnetism, Vector Calculus (gradient, divergence, curl, and their respective integral formulas), Exponential and Logarithmic integrals and differential equations, Carbohydrated Metabolism with all of the enzyme activators / inhibitors, and a penchant for devising novel and fun math and physics problems with one or more clever solutions.

Hello HS and University Science students. My name is Dennis; I have had several years of Life Science training as an undergraduate with strong Minors in Biology, Anatomy & Physiology, Genetics, and Biochemistry. I then attended and completed a 4 year Medical School with additional training in these disciplines also Pathophysiology & Pharmacology. I then completed a Surgical Training Residency and Practiced Surgical Oncology for 18 years. For more than 15 years I have both taught these disciplines at several Universities as an Adjunct Instructor, and provided both individual / group tutoring assistance to students at all levels. I am comfortable tutoring all Life Sciences Disciplines except Botany, and am currently doing group tutoring for several local area High School students at General Biology.

I first studied Calculus in High School, then kept studying Advanced Calculus, Vector Calculus and Differential Equations - 3 years of University level Calculus courses beyond basic Calculus which I proficiencied out of via the AP Calc Exam. I obtained a BS Degree in Electrical Engineering/ Physics in which I solved many Calculus related Differntial Equations: mainly Schroedinger Equation. I enjoy the challenge of helping today's students solve new calculus problems. The fundamental insight that comes with their solution is often quite enlightening.

When your college kid requests tutor time during Spring Break, you know that THIS tutor is great!

A week before college spring break, my son called home and specifically requested time to "beef up his skills" with Dennis. They had 2 very productive sessions and my son went back to college with more confidence!

Joan, 9 lessons with Dennis

Very Repsonsive and available

Dennis was able to make time on short notice and came over on a Sunday. He quickly identified some reasons why my daughter was having some difficulty with physics and offered some solutions and an on going strategy. This extra help should enable my daughter to have a stronger foundation for the class.
