San Diego State University
Ohio State University (PhD)
I am a chemist with teaching, tutoring and industry experience. I am a US citizen. I tutored other students in chemistry and physics while I was in undergraduate and graduate school. As an undergraduate I worked for the Veterans Administration and tutored veterans. I am a military veteran of the Vietnam era. I taught physical chemistry as a graduate student. My tutoring approach is to have the student self identify weaknesses and then focus on strengthening those areas of understanding rather than using a shotgun, lecture approach.
I had a post-doctoral position at Brookhaven National Labs on Long Island before entering industry. I have been involved as a chemist in the semiconductor industry for 25+ years developing various products used during manufacture of semiconductors. I have been granted 12 US patents. I developed and taught internal technology classes at two Fortune 500 chemical companies. I am a certified Zenger-Miller (now Achieve Global) facilitator. I have a BS in chemistry (with highest honors) from San Diego State University and a PhD in physical chemistry from The Ohio State University where I was a pre-doctoral fellow. I worked my way through undergraduate school while working several jobs and graduated with a 4.0. I was granted a full fellowship for graduate school. Only 2 graduate students in my incoming class of 200 qualified to bypass an MS and go directly for a PhD degree. I was one of those two.
I have authored or co-authored over 60 papers and have been an invited speaker at technical symposia in the US, Europe, and Asia. I have worked in semiconductor production facilities, starting at AT&T Bell Labs. I have been involved in seven start-up companies, four of which have been successful. I have developed equipment and consumable products for use during manufacture of semiconductor devices. I am a recognized expert in formulating cleaning products, surface preparation, and in use of corrosion inhibition technologies to prevent corrosion of metals.

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.
I have degrees in chemistry and physical chemistry.
