About Harvey

I spent most of my career developing science requirements for the International Space Station. In this role, I designed and built several experiments for flight. My initial career was as a nuclear engineer, performing safety analyses for advanced nuclear reactors and theoretical studies of nuclear fusion.

I grew up in a tough economic environment with a loving mother who told us to do our best, and I now wish to help young people to succeed in a competitive employment market to find a career that is challenging and rewarding. This means doing well in school to enter a good university.

My degrees include the following:
A B.S. Physics at a very competitive, science-oriented college that emphasized higher math; a B.S. in Physics at a very competitive, science-oriented college that emphasized higher math and science; 2 M.S.'s in Physics and Nuclear Engineering, and a PhD Nuclear Engineering. In my career, I taught astronauts about unique physical/chemical processes in the absence of gravity aboard the International Space Station.

I would truly like to pass on the rewards of a very successful career to the next generation. I can be ready to schedule lessons quickly.

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.

Algebra 2

I earned my BS Physics from Harvey Mudd College, MS Physics from University of Washington, MSE Nuclear Engineering from University of Washington, PhD Nuclear Engineering from University of Washington, and have 22 years experience with Boeing as Chief Scientist for the International Space Station.

Calculus

I attended a very specialized science college in California where most of the students had received Math SAT scores over 780, and used this to go on to Masters and PhD degrees in Physics.

Chemistry

I have a BS Physics, Harvey Mudd College and my MS Physics, MSE Nuclear Engineering, PhD Nuclear Engineering, University of Washington. I led many research teams looking at the unique features of materials processing in the absence of gravity.
