Qualifications & Experience

I can help you come to grips with many subjects, especially physics, chemistry, math and related subjects (see list of subjects). I am available to tutor students at all levels, up to and including grad. school. I have experience tutoring elementary and high school, ACT, SAT, college, MCAT, GRE,and graduate school. Whether you are struggling with material, or if you are an advanced student looking for a complete understanding, I can help you. I am passionate about teaching these subjects, but I realize that they don't come easily to all students. When tutoring, I make every effort to relate to students at their level and present topics in an understandable and approachable way.

For students who are struggling with difficult classes, do not despair! A poor teacher or lecturer or difficult curriculum does not spell disaster, if you're able to get help. I have aided hundreds of students come to grips with difficult and challenging materials.

I have degrees in Physics and Chemical Physics. My graduate training was at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, a top-notch science and engineering school. I have many years teaching experience, in college, grad. school and high school. Most recently I have taught in private schools in chicagoland, where I headed a science department, redesigned science curricula and designed a rebuild of the science labs. At the same time I taught AP and honors classes, college classes and tutored students individually.
