About MEERA

I have been working in the aero space industry for 35 years at Orbital Sciences Corporation at Germantown, MD as a scientist. I have just retired from the company, where I had the responsibility for all safety studies relating to the payload for various missions. This involved detailed structural calculations in order to simulate the response of the payload to a multitude of credible accident scenarios proposed by NASA.

Now that I have retired from the company, I would like to use my expertise to foster interest in math at junior and high school level. During my tenure at Orbital Sciences Corporation, I have been doing one-on-one tutoring for students form Montgomery County Public Schools occasionally. I would like to continue this on a regular basis. My method has been to meet the student in a local library once a week. I would request the student to bring in her/his textbooks and any work assignments the student had completed or had problems completing. I would then go over the problems in detail and help the student to understand the math in the homework arena and future testing.

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.

Algebra 1

I have a PhD degree in Physics and a 35 year work experience with Orbital Sciences Corporation as a Senior Scientist. Since my educational and work background have a large component of mathematics, I feel I can teach this subject in a one-on-one environment.

Algebra 2

I have a PhD degree in Physics and a 35 year work experience with Orbital Sciences Corporation as a Senior Scientist. Since my educational and work background have a large component of mathematics, I feel I can teach this subject in a one-on-one environment.

Calculus

I have a PhD degree in physics and a 35 year work experience with Orbital Sciences Corporation as a senior scientist. My work involved computing the trajectories of the various parts of the spacecraft in case of a launch abort accident. Since my educational and work background have a large component of mathematics, I can teach calculus in a one-on-one environment.

Differential Equations

I have a PhD degree in physics and a 35 year work experience with Orbital Sciences Corporation as a senior scientist. My work involved computing the trajectories of the various parts of the spacecraft in case of a launch abort accident. Since my educational and work background have a large component of mathematics, I can teach differential equations in a one-on-one environment.

Elementary Math

I have a PhD degree in Physics and 35 years of work experience with Orbital Sciences Corporation as a Senior Scientist. Since my educational and work background have a large component of mathematics, I feel I can teach this subject in a one-on-one environment.

Geometry

I have a PhD degree in physics and a 35 year work experience with Orbital Sciences Corporation as a senior scientist. My work involved computing the trajectories of the various parts of the spacecraft in case of a launch abort accident. Since my educational and work background have a large component of mathematics, I can teach geometry in a one-on-one environment.

Physics

I have a PhD in physics and have been working for an aerospace company as a senior staff scientist for the past 30 years. I have now retired and have tutored a number oh MCPS high school students in math and physics and helped to prepare them for the SAT exam

Prealgebra

I have been involved with calculations to simulate the response of the payload to credible accident scenarios as specified by NASA for various missions for the past 35 years.
This work required proficiency in all branches of mathematics. I would like to do one on one tutoring to make use of my expertise.
