Qualifications & Experience

I'm Gordon. I grew up in the U.K. where I attended the University of Edinburgh and London University before coming to the U.S. to attend Caltech for my Ph.D. I've studied and utilized math, science and computing for most of my career. I'm an experienced educator, having taught and tutored students over a 10+ year period. This has included working with middle, high school and college students, as well as adults. I have taught almost all math topics relevant to high school and computer classes at the college level. Some students I tutored all the way from middle school to college. Some even changed their major and ended up in well-paying careers in data science and computing. I love having had the privilege of assisting them on part of their educational journey.

The learning experience should be fun, and along with tutoring the subject matter I try to develop motivation, passion, good study habits and goal setting as important side benefits to the experience. Outside tutoring, in my career as a consultant, I have used math and computing extensively, so I am able to convey to the student the exciting real-world applications of the subject.

Chemistry was one of my favorite subjects throughout high school and college. It is a fundamental science topic that any citizen in today's world needs to understand, since it impacts society and our lives in so many ways, including understanding food additives, pollution, climate change, nuclear energy and medicine, just to mention a few. It is a prerequisite to any career in biology, so a solid understanding of its basics is important.

Please contact me to schedule a lesson, or if you have any questions or need references. I will get back to you within 24 hours, or sooner. I look forward to assisting you in achieving your educational goals for your kids or for yourself.
