About Alvin

I taught general chemistry full time at a community college in Illinois for 32 years, and part time for 3 years. For the last 5 years I have tutored mainly college chemistry (not organic chemistry) and math (not statistics). I have also done some tutoring
chemistry and math for high school students.

My degrees include a Bachelor's degree in chemical engineering and a PhD in chemistry.

I will be in the Boca Raton area until very late March 2015 and can do tutoring of high school or college chemistry or math.
