"I have 16 years teaching experience in physics, astronomy, and the associated math. I had large classes of beginning students. Because of the class size I had an 'open door' policy and helped students individually if they got hung up on some problems.

I also had a lot of experience advising/mentoring four PhD and two MS grad students. All of my students did well. One of them is the software lead for two large projects at Caltech.

First, I took many math classes and math- laden astronomy, physics, and electrical engineering classes at UChicago, Caltech, and Illinois. Secondly, I had a number of engineering/science jobs in neurology, rail wear analysis, aerospace, and astronomical instrumentation. I used various math techniques to solve practical problems, which gives me a different perspective, and may motivate students.

I taught a large number of classes, both large introductory classes and small graduate level classes. I also published 60 papers and obtained a number of grants.

It has always been fun just to look at the sky. I was the director of the University's small observatory and often ran the telescopes on Open House nights.

I took an early retirement, but would like to get back to tutoring/teaching. It was rewarding to see the students "get it". I'm sure I could significantly help students.. I realize my profile is different from most tutors, but as they say: "There is snow on the roof, but a fireplace in the house." less...
