About Walter

I started teaching as an instructor at the Naval Nuclear Propulsion School back in the '80s. After leaving the Navy, I became a high school science teacher.

I currently hold Pennsylvania teaching certifications in Physics, Earth/Space, and General Science, and Mathematics; I have taught all of these subjects at one time or another.

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.
