About this tutor

I explain the material in a clear and easy to understand way.  I walk students through all the steps involved.  I make sure that my students thoroughly understand the concepts and can solve the problems they encounter whether it be on their tests, quizzes, homework, etc.  

I teach chemistry, physics, and physical science at North Central Missouri College where I am a full-time faculty member.  I teach both on-ground and online classes.  

I teach and tutor online so I am available to tutor students in all parts of the US.  

I have over 20 years of teaching and tutoring experience at the college and high school levels.  

I really enjoy seeing my students have a "lightbulb" moment when they understand and master a difficult or otherwise confusing topic.  

Many of my former students have advanced to successful careers.  I truly feel fulfilled when they reconnect with me and tell me how much they have benefitted from my help.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

The student or student's parents contact me and I will respond promptly to setup a mutually convenient time for tutoring.  I strive to accommodate "last-minute" tutoring requests, but it is always a good idea to contact me sooner rather than later.  

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I teach full time at North Central Missouri College.  I teach the following courses: 

Introduction to Chemistry, General Chemistry 1 and 2, Organic Chemistry 1 and 2, Introduction to Physics, College Physics 1 and 2, General Physics 1 and 2, and Introduction to Physical Science.

I have a M.S. degree in chemistry from UCLA and a B.S. degree in chemistry from UC Berkeley.  

I have written a review book for AP Physics and have been a contributing author in Barron's MCAT Prep book.  

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$50 per hour.  Please inquire about my package discounts and sibling discounts.  Payment is through Venmo, Zelle, or PayPal.

How did you get started teaching?

I was a peer-tutor at UC Berkeley during my senior year.  

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with all types of students: middle school, high school, traditional and non-traditional college students, and adult learners.  

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I really like doing demonstrations for my on-ground chemistry classes.  My favorite demonstrations are the thermite reaction and "whoosh-bottle".  Those really excite my students.  

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Try to be as specific as possible when  communicating with a teacher.
