About Barry


Bio

Ever since playing with a friend’s chemistry set as a ten year old and having a most fantastic high school chemistry teacher for two years, I have had a passion for the chemical and biological sciences. After completing a B.S. in organic chemistry, I combined my chemical and biological interests in pursuit of a M.S. and Ph.D. in pharmacology. Although I did not choose teaching as a career, I have always been interested in sharing my passion for science with others. As an undergraduate...

Ever since playing with a friend’s chemistry set as a ten year old and having a most fantastic high school chemistry teacher for two years, I have had a passion for the chemical and biological sciences. After completing a B.S. in organic chemistry, I combined my chemical and biological interests in pursuit of a M.S. and Ph.D. in pharmacology. Although I did not choose teaching as a career, I have always been interested in sharing my passion for science with others. As an undergraduate senior-year chemistry major, I volunteered to tutor students in freshman chemistry. As a research scientist in industry (DuPont, GlaxoSmithKline), I volunteered to serve as a tutor in a problem-based learning physiology course at the University of Delaware and was often in the role of teaching my area of research specialization (cardiac and central nervous system electrophysiology) to pharmaceutical industry colleagues and junior level scientists in my lab.

Shortly after my retirement from the pharmaceutical industry in November, 2014, I began tutoring high school students in all levels of chemistry and biology through a local tutoring service. Because my recent tutoring experiences have been highly beneficial to my students and highly gratifying to me, it is my intent to expand my services beyond those currently available to me.

In addition to my many years of experience in pharmaceutical research that required in depth knowledge of chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology and physiology, I have adopted what I call an "on the same page" approach to tutoring. I ask all my students to provide me with a copy of their course textbook so that I can see exactly what is being taught and can answer chapter exercises BEFORE each tutoring session. This approach, although more time consuming for me, maximizes the assistance I can provide during tutoring sessions.
