About Clark

I am a bay area graduate (UC Berkeley) who has loved the learning process all my life. I have used my math and science skills throughout my engineering career, and enjoy engaging others in the learning process. Seeing a student smile as they begin to understand a difficult topic is very rewarding.

I specialize in tutoring chemistry, math, and physics to help students achieve success in school, and on the various standardized tests. My goal is not only to help the student learn, but create an interest in the subject as well, as I have found that interest and curiosity are the best motivators. I try to challenge students to do their best, without overwhelming them.

I expect the best from myself, and I will not charge for any lesson with which the student, or parent is not completely satisfied.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies.

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.

Bridge

I have played bridge since I was ten years old. For the last thirty years I have played regularly in tournaments up to and including the national level. I enjoy the challenge of communicating with a very restricted language in either the bidding or the play.

Chemistry

I am a UC Berkeley graduate with a BS degree in Chemistry. I have a masters degree in inorganic chemistry from Northwestern University. I have continued to use math, and chemistry in my engineering career building scientific instruments for chemistry research (NMR probes). I also enjoy mathematical puzzles and games.

Organic Chemistry

I am a chemistry graduate from UC Berkeley. My studies included an advanced organic course and an advanced organic laboratory course in addition to the normal organic chemistry class. I also have a masters degree in inorganic chemistry from Northwestern university. I have continued to use organic chemistry in my career building NMR probes which are usually used on organic molecules.

Very thorough and understanding (written by my son) — I have been tutoring with Clark for Organic chemistry for a few months now, and am very happy to be learning from him. He is very knowledgeable on the subject and if I ask him to go over a certain part he goes into detail regarding that part. He knows how much to go into and asks me if I want more detail requiring certain parts. Organic chemistry is a hard subject which requires lots of memorizati ...
