Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

C

I have been programming professionally using C++ since 2006. I took both a UCLA Extension C++ course (2006) and a Northrop Grumman Corporation C++ course (2007).

Sample programs available upon request! C++, for which I'm previously qualified, is a superset of C. I have programmed in embedded C professionally at Goodrich Aerospace and Curtiss Wright Controls.

Chess

In my college (undergraduate and graduate) years, I was rated approximately 1550 (USCF). I've been interested at various levels since then(1973-1984). I would share the highlights of my Chess career(including the defeat of a National Master in a Simultaneous exhibition) and train beginning players. My strength is Openings and the Middle game more than Endings. I have many books to share!

Organic Chemistry

I hold a PhD in Chemistry (UCLA). I have published papers in major Chemistry journals. I have taken several Organic Chemistry semester length courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Published paper references available upon request. This past summer, I tutored a University of California student in Organic Chemistry.
