About Dr.

I have BS and PhD degrees in Chemistry and over 30 years combined experience in both industry and academia. I have taught all levels but mostly high school and college.

I focus now on online teaching / tutoring, and the available technology now makes that relatively easy. And it's MUCH more convenient (and safe) for both the student and me.

As part of the online focus, I have posted on a popular site a number of video clips explaining how to work specific chemistry "word problems". Those are probably the students' biggest hurdle, but it's all in the approach. I can teach you several techniques that will reduce your stress and boost your confidence, both in the process and in the final answer.

Chances are, if you've paid attention and tried to do the work all along, you've learned all the pieces you need to solve the problems. The difficulty is putting the pieces together -- and getting enough practice that you will be able to work confidently and quickly on your own.

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.

Chemistry

I have BS and PhD degrees in Chemistry.
I have over 30 years combined experience in industry and academia/teaching.
I discount the hourly rate for online sessions by 20-25%.

Grammar

In a career of over 30 years, about 20 were spent in Industry and about 10 in academia. My students have told me more than once, "You grade harder than the English Department does." And I teach Chemistry, not one of the "fuzzy" subjects where writing is emphasized.

I was in the Honors English program as an undergraduate, but my diploma doesn't show it because I didn't stay in that program. I learned the rules of grammar and punctuation very thoroughly in High School English, and the key is the very same as my Greek teacher used when I studied New Testament Greek: diagramming sentences. There is no clearer way to take apart a sentence and really understand its structure. My wife, the author of six juvenile mysteries and two books of non-fiction, relies on my final edit of her manuscripts -- *after* the professional editor(s) at the publisher have done their work. I'm more meticulous than they are.

Prealgebra

As a chemist and chemistry professor I use basic math like Pre-Algebra all the time. I can not only explain it, I can often explain how it's relevant to "real life".

Dr, B was awesome. Very well prepared and the tutoring session was successful. We will definitely use Dr. B. For additional sessions. He was able to confirm and correct things for my daughter and will be able to keep her up to speed in Chem II during the school year.
