About Glen

Hello. I tutor the good student who wants to excel. He or she is not trying to catch up, or merely pass a class, but is venturing into advanced topics, AP classes, or going beyond what is offered in school. This might include science fairs, math/science competitions, or technical writing competitions. My students are definitely planning for college, and probably grad school.

I am an interdisciplinary physical scientist with 25 years experimental research experience. My graduate degree is Materials Science Engineering, with undergraduate degrees in Physics and Chemistry. I utilize Physics, Chemistry, and Math daily in my professional work. My specialization currently is developing polymer medical devices with national security significance, in an independent two-person laboratory.

Science fair best captures my interest in tutoring. I enjoy assisting the student operating far outside the ordinary classroom "box." I have coached and judged Odyssey of the Mind, Science Fairs, Science Olympiads, and technical writing. My own children have won Odyssey of the Mind and Regional Science Fairs; one scored 800 on SAT math; another took calculus in eighth grade. I have five patents in four diverse technical fields. At a Department of Energy National Lab I mentored dozens of students ranging from high school to experienced teachers to professors on sabbatical.
