About Raymond

Hello. Are you struggling to learn, understand, make sense out of, or memorize materials required of you to complete a course or project? My view of learning is to approach tasks as puzzles that are fun to work with and I try to look at them from at least several different directions, using models (physical and mental) and examples that that have parallels in common.

I enjoy interacting with people of all ages and background and assisting them in learning the concepts of chemistry and physics. Of particular delight is seeing student discover their understanding of a topic, subject, or process: the “Eureka moment”.

I have a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry from University of South Florida, Tampa, Florida.
I have tutored students in pre-nursing, general chemistry, organic chemistry, pre-med, and genetics at the college level. In high school I have tutored in all sciences including earth and environmental science as well as math through pre-calculus.

My most recent career background includes 10 years of experience teaching high school chemistry and physics.
I am currently working in three school districts - Bloomfield Hills, Troy and Warren Consolidated – as a substitute teacher.

My earlier careers include over 6 years of experience in chemical research work and 18 years of experience work developing automotive top coat paint systems. I also worked for 2 years as an ISO 9000 Quality Auditing traveling to various parts of the US and Canada.

From 2006 to 2010, I worked with 2 professors from Wayne State University during the summers. Four of those summers we worked with small (4-8) groups of high school students at WSU. The students learned about cosmic rays, hands-on building of cosmic ray detector instruments, data collection, data analysis, and experimental report writing.

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.

Chemistry

I have a MS in organic chemistry from University of South Florida (Tampa) from 1968 and a PhD in physical organic chemistry in 1978 from the same university. I was employed with the BASF Corporation doing analytical chemistry in Wyandotte Mich and 18 years with Du Pont de Nemures as staff chemist and research associate in their Troy Michigan Automotive top coat research lab.
