About Robert

I have spent a 35 year career in medical physics working in hospital environments, doing research, administration, and teaching. I have taught undergraduates, medical school students, medical residents, nurses, x-ray equipment engineers, and I have also helped graduate students prepare their thesis defense. Topics have ranged from undergraduate math and physics to radiation safety and radiobiology. I have also volunteered at the Woodstock, VT public library helping library patrons learn about how to use their computers more effectively. To get my mind working on other skills, I recently published a children's book about the adventures of an armadillo family.

I enjoy teaching enormously and have always received outstanding reviews. I am a very patient teacher and try to relax my students by injecting a little humor into my teaching sessions. I really look forward to tutoring through WyzAnt!

All through my university training I have specialized in quantitative science subjects principally in physics, radiobiology, and math.

Please get in touch to talk about the needs you have for tutoring. I can certainly help you in math and physics and can also help you with writing.

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.

English

Hello! I feel I am eminently qualified to teach "English" from all aspects. One reason is that I grew up in the U.K., where a much greater emphasis is placed on the quality of written and verbal communications skills than in the U.S. Another reason is that throughout my 35 year career in science, I was repeatedly responsible for writing research grant proposals to federal and private agencies, and verbally defending them in front of visiting research administrators. I hope to instill in my students the same high level of skill in all aspects of English communications as I was privileged to enjoy during my career in science.
