Although my professional focus has been in the academic and industrial research and development field, I have had a parallel career teaching within university and college settings. Beginning in high school, I taught and tutored general physics and mathematics. I continued tutoring during my college years where I regularly prepared high school students for the rigorous university entrance examinations for the scientific and technical universities in Hungary. For two years following graduation, I taught a course entitled "Experimental Physics", as an assistant professor for students majoring in chemistry and physical chemistry at Lorand Eotvos University. Between 1962 and 1979, I continued tutoring in introductory physics and, in alternate years, I worked as adjunct assistant professor at the same university.
After completing my doctorate (Ph.D. in Solid State Physics) and immigrating to the United States, I resumed my adjunct teaching role at De Anza College, Cupertino, California, where I taught the engineering physics courses (Newtonian mechanics, electrodynamics, thermodynamics, and introduction to quantum physics and the theory of special relativity) recommended for scientists and engineers, from 1986 until 1990.
After retiring from Intel/Numonyx in 2009, I started tutoring physics and mathematics in the Sacramento area.
As an adjunct professor, I taught the 411 and 431 engineering physics labs at Folsom Lake College, Folsom in three spring semesters from 2011 until 2013.
My tutoring style is best described as 'interactive'. I teach by asking questions and help the student to find the right answer. Knowledge gained this way is more reliable and applicable in practice than that by only explanations by the tutor.
I am looking forward to working with motivated students to teach my most favorite subject: physics. Although my professional focus has been in the academic and industrial research and development field, I have had a parallel career teaching within university and college settings.

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.
