Do you wish your child's/children's school had more hands-on science opportunities, or had science class more often? Could your child(ren) benefit from additional science fun and learning, or from help with school assignments including Science Fair projects and other needs? Are science questions flowing from your child(ren) that you cannot answer, or are you are having difficulty helping them find out the answers themselves? I will not only accommodate those endless questions, I will tailor activities and any assistance to your child(ren)'s interests, needs, and areas of learning (s)he/they wish to pursue. I am a dad with decades of tutoring and full-time teaching experience. Currently, I am an elementary science teacher, which I have been doing for more than 12 of my 32 years of teaching. My particular areas of expertise are: Space exploration, astronomy, and meteorology. I have been a three-time guest columnist on space science topics for the Kids' page of a major city newspaper. I also have guided children in summer academic camps for over twenty summers to engage in projects and simulations in space exploration/habitation, astronomy, and the weather. (PARENT OF A STUDENT): "You have inspired my son." (REGIONAL EDUCATIONAL DIRECTOR): "He has an instinct on how children learn; you cannot teach that." (PARENT OF A STUDENT): "Your science class is my child's favorite class at school." (PARENT OF A STUDENT): "My daughter says you are the funniest teacher at school."
