"I am a lifelong learner, teacher and education advocate. I have 50 years experience working with sciences, math, safety, reading/writing/grammar/spelling, business planning and environmental studies. I recently retired from Lawrence Berkeley National Lab's Molecular Foundry, a DOE nanotechnology research facility funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. I had an extensive career in semiconductor microelectronics and business operations for technical organizations in industry, academia and government service. I also have an extensive background in Environmental, Health and Safety (EH&S) as well as auditing experience in ISO processes. Finally, I have been tutoring students in both specific subject areas as well as standard tests preparation for over 30 years. I offer my students a multifaceted approach to both learning and knowledge application, as well as advice on and practice for successful test-taking strategies. I work with my students to establish and then develop their capabilities by guiding them safely through the difficult and unfamiliar.
My general approach to tutoring is to first understand the scope of the tutoring project by communicating with the learner and parents (where applicable). I provide an estimate of how long - number of hours of study ans well as tutor interface time - the tutoring experience will take to achieve the student's (and parental) desired outcome. In this way, each of us know expectations and deliverable components of our interactions. I continuously provide an ongoing assessment of all progress (and setbacks) towards mutually expected outcomes after my tutoring session. I prefer to engage with a prospective student before the first lessons are scheduled to ensure positive synergy in the student-tutor relationship.
I specialize in preparing my students for college, university and graduate school standardized admission qualification test preparation - a significantly different set of skills than are needed for single subject or discipline mastery. I work with my students t" less...
