Hello!

My name is Art and I have degrees in Chemical Engineering (B.S., M.S., Ph.D.) from 2 top-tier (most selective) global research engineering universities. For the past 30 years, I have been successfully tutoring middle school, high school and college students in all levels of math, chemistry and physics. At the university level, I have prepared course materials, lectures as well as tutored calculus I to III, differential equations and various chemical engineering courses. My main...

Hello!

My name is Art and I have degrees in Chemical Engineering (B.S., M.S., Ph.D.) from 2 top-tier (most selective) global research engineering universities. For the past 30 years, I have been successfully tutoring middle school, high school and college students in all levels of math, chemistry and physics. At the university level, I have prepared course materials, lectures as well as tutored calculus I to III, differential equations and various chemical engineering courses. My main goal is to try and find a way to make studying these subjects fun so that students understand the basic principles. Using this approach should improve their confidence to solve similar and more complicated problems in the future. Whenever possible, I try to use real life examples. To me, one of the greatest joys is to see the look in a student's eyes when the material starts to click.

I am an inventor on multiple patents and publications which required strong chemistry, physics, math, and engineering skills. I try to be flexible with time. While I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I offer make-up sessions. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in all of your math, chemistry, and physics studies.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra is the study of mathematical statements utilizing letters and symbols to describe relationships. Both Algebra I and II provide the foundation for higher level mathematics. As a result, it is very important that students comprehend the basic principles. Key focus areas for Algebra I include: equations and inequalities, functions, system of equations and inequalities, quadratic functions and equations, exponents and polynomials, probability, rational functions and equations as well as exponentials and radical functions. For over 20 years, I have worked with students in Algebra I and understand the areas which students will find difficult.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra is the study of mathematical statements utilizing letters and symbols to describe relationships. Both Algebra I and II provide the foundation for higher level mathematics. As a result, it is very important that students comprehend the basic principles. Key focus areas for Algebra II include: functions, equations, graphing, quadratic equations & functions, polynomial functions, radical functions, rational functions, exponential & logarithmic functions, rational exponents and trigonometry. For over 20 years, I have worked with students in Algebra II and understand the areas which students will find difficult.
Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus was created by both Issac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz. It generally can be thought of as the study of how things change. Engineers, pharmaceutical scientists, economists, chemists, biologist and mathematician will generally use principles of calculus. Key focus areas for calculus AB and BC include: limits, differentiation, related rates, integration, improper integrals, power series as well as determination of arc length, areas under curves as well as volume under surfaces. With over 20 years of tutoring calculus (high school- AB, BC; college- calculus I, II, III, IV), I understand the areas which students will find difficult. I currently work for a large chemical company. During my career as a chemical engineer, I have used calculus to study and model chemical reactions as well as design large production chemical plants. On a more interesting note, I applied the principles of calculus to answer the age old question- were dinosaurs warm-blooded or cold-blooded?
Chemistry,

Chemistry

Chemistry is a subset of natural science that studies the composition, structure, properties and change of matter. Careers in the field of chemical engineering, petroleum engineering, biomedical engineering, environmental science, pharmacology, biochemistry and food science will generally use principles of chemistry. Key focus areas in chemistry include: matter, structure of matter, gases, aqueous solutions, chemical notation, chemical calculations, stoichiometric problems based on chemical equations, acid-base solutions, chemical equilibrium, ionic equilibrium, thermodynamics and electrochemistry. With over 20 years of tutoring all levels of chemistry (high school, AP, college), I understand the areas which students will find difficult. In high school, I took AP chemistry and placed out of freshman chemistry. In college and graduate school, I received A's in all chemistry courses. I have been granted 17 U.S. patents which required a fundamental understanding of both chemistry and math. I have prepared detailed AP chemistry lecture materials complete with solved problems for a local area high school.
Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry is the study of space and spacial relationships. This requires students to develop both logical and deductive reasoning skills. The fields of engineering, robotics, astronomy, architecture, philosophy and mathematics all use principles of geometry. Key focus areas for geometry include: parallel and perpendicular lines, congruence, polygons and quadrilaterals, similarity, circles, transformations, properties of triangles and geometric proofs. For over 20 years, I have worked with students in geometry and understand the areas which students will find difficult.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Prealgebra begins to introduce the concepts of algebra. A strong understanding of these concepts is important to having success in algebra. Key focus areas in prealgebra include: solving one step equations, decimals, fractions, factors and exponents, ratios/proportions/percentage, area and volume. With over 20 years of working with students in prealgebra, I understand the areas which students will find difficult.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Precalculus further develops the concepts introduced in both Algebra II and trigonometry. A strong understanding of these concepts is important to having success in calculus. Engineers, pharmaceutical scientists, economists, chemists, biologist, astronomers, meteorologists, oceanographers and mathematician will generally use principles of precalculus. Key focus areas for precalculus include: functions, equations, graphing, quadratic equations & functions, polynomial functions, radical functions, rational functions, exponential & logarithmic functions, rational exponents and trigonometry. With over 20 years of tutoring precalculus, I understand the areas which students will find difficult.

Chemical Engineering,

Chemical Engineering

I have a B.S., M.S. and Ph.D in chemical engineering. In college, I held lecture sessions in thermodynamics, heat transfer and reaction kinetics. Our team senior project was to design a chemical plant (complete with economic justifications) presented with only the final product specifications and starting feed streams. This required a sound understanding of basic chemical engineering principles as well as computer simulations. During my career at a major chemical company, I have used principles of chemical engineering on a routine basis to design chemical equipment, investigate chemical kinetics, develop/model chemical processes and formulations and develop new products. I have been granted 17 U.S. patents which required a fundamental understanding of chemical engineering, chemistry and math.
Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I have a B.S., M.S. and Ph.D in chemical engineering. In college, I completed calculus 3 which was an entire course devoted to differential equations ( easy "A"). In both undergraduate and graduate schools, I completed classes in fluid dynamics, reaction kinetics as well as heat/mass transfer all of which required the use of differential equations. During my career at a major chemical company, I have used differential equations to understand and design chemical processes.

Was able to help my son!

Art was wonderful spent a lot of time making sure My son understood both Algebra 2 and Chemistry. When we left Carsten said to me thanks mom he really broke it down for me so I could get it. We look forward to working with Art. Thank you.

Tiffany, 10 lessons with Art

Thorough and committed

To begin with, Art was very patient and took the time to understand our specific needs and expectations for our two sons. His way of teaching and approach towards the subject connected well with the boys. He is very familiar with the school curriculum and was able to identify problem areas for more focused attention.
