I was a research physicist that worked on NASA and DOD contracts. I participated in the Pioneer and Voyager mission to explore the outer solar system. I worked on developing IED detectors. I also taught college classes in physics lab and physics. I have tutored at both the High School and college level the subjects Physics, Astronomy, calculus and algebra. I also help with ideas for science fair projects. My teaching method depends on the student, and if mastery of the subject is important for their school major. I find out how the student learns things. Before test I review what material will be on the test with my students. I use both real world and sometimes superhero examples when explaining physics to my students. If needed, I have stress managing techniques. I have a sense of humor and believe coffee and snacks are import during long or late tutoring sessions.
I starting helping my fellow students when I was in high school and it continued through college. I started tutoring when I was a graduate student. I have taught 10 students. Most recently I helped a high school student that was super stressed over her multiple AP courses. Not only did she get into her #1 college but she also got a 50% scholarship. All students that I have tutored have reported an increase in test scores.
I have Ph.D., Space Physics a M.S. and B.A. in Astronomy from the University of Iowa.
I am a Military Sensing Information Analysis Center recognized subject matter export in Polarization Imagery and Sensing, Space and Radiation Hardening, and space science.
I have over 40 years of physics and math experience. I worked on multi-agency and multi-disciplinary projects. Most recent focus areas include space weather and developing models based on first principles and new sensor development.
