Math-Physics-Computer Help from a Skilled, Communicative Tutor

I'm enthusiastic about tutoring -- I've been teaching and tutoring, as time permitted, starting when I was a graduate student. My BA is in Maths and Computer Science, my PhD is in Physics, I did postdoctoral work in Biophysics, I was on the Physiology faculty at a university in Canada, and now I work in the Biotech field here in the Bay Area. My approach when tutoring is to find a way to bring the student to that "aha" moment when things become clear. Not just to become clear for its own sa... [more]

General Computer


Microsoft Word


My PhD is in elementary particle physics, and I have extensive learning and teaching experience in the major areas of physics at up to the university graduate level.





Differential Equations

I have worked with differential equations extensively throughout my career in maths, physics and biophysics. I would be happy to help others learn and achieve in this most important branch of mathematics.

Computer Programming

I have used Computer Programming extensively for my work in physics, maths and biophysics, and have taught classes in selected areas. My experience includes a number of computer languages, as well as algorithms and methods for the use of computers to solve practical and numerical and control problems. I enjoy the subject, and would be happy to help others who are taking classes in this discipline.

Computer Science

My undergraduate degree is in Computer Science, and I started the graduate program in this field before I returned to finish in physics. As the subject matter has evolved with time, it would be best to ask me if I can help with a particular topic.


I have been using DOS for years with all kinds of projects related to PC-type computers. I can very likely help with any questions or topics that arise in this subject.


I have extensive experience in Fortran based on my physics research years, both on mainframe and personal computers. I also have a degree in computer science.

Microsoft Windows

As a side project, I maintain a fleet of some 100 Windows computers at a local K-8 school, and have experience in many aspects of practical and theoretical issues.
