Diverse Tutor with a D.Sc. and an MBA

I am a full-time computational physicist with the navy in aerothermochemistry. I am also an adjunct professor for NVCC. I have been tutoring students for many years and have a good understanding where the roadblocks are and the workarounds they are sometimes forced to employ. I use this stuff every day at work and can help explain difficult concepts from many different perspectives. I often find that students are much closer to their goals than they know, and usually need some carefully f... [more]

Physical Science


Differential Equations

I got an A- in differential equations in my undergraduate studies. At graduate level I received an A in Applied Science for applications of ordinary differential equations, matrices and determinants, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, systems of ordinary linear differential equations, Bessel and Legendre functions. Solutions also covered analytical solutions to partial differential equations, temporal and spatial, in Cartesian, cylindrical, and spherical coordinate systems. I also studied numerical methods to solve PDEs using finite element, finite difference, and finite volume methods.


Business

I have a doctor of science degree in computational physics (2008) and an MBA from GMU (2015). I would be happy to submit my transcripts upon request. Subjects include macro and micro economics, strategy, business statistics, marketing, organizational behavior, and more. I am currently working on business dynamics tasks using the Peter Senge and John Sterman as primary references.


Linear Algebra

I have a doctor of science degree from GWU (2008) in computational physics related to thermal science and fluid mechanics, with a specialty in combustion dynamics. I have tutored algebra students for over 30 years. I have applied linear algebra techniques in computational fluid dynamics problems, using vector notation and subscripted tensor notation.


MATLAB

I have been using MATLAB for about a decade, for work, grad school, and home business issues. I am familiar with the functions in many toolboxes. I have also used MATLAB to link with Excel in real time through the use on COM objects, have used the object oriented capacity, and developed many user interfaces. I would be happy to submit some of my programs as references.


Chemical Engineering

I have a Sc.D. in computational physics with a focus on aerothermochemistry. My dissertation dealt with multiphase reactions of aluminum, with heat transfer occurring vie conduction, convection, and radiation. The unique nature of aluminum combustion, particularly the products of combustion, required consideration of the phase-equilibria. In addition, in grad school I studied classical and statistical thermodynamics.


Mechanical Engineering

I received a masters degree in Mechanical Engineering from GWU in 1995. I also have a doctor of science degree from GWU in 2008. I have been employed as a mechanical engineer for over 30 years. I would be happy to submit my transcripts and work history.


Finite Math

I am a full-time computational physicist with the navy in aerothermochemistry. I am also an adjunct professor for NVCC. I apply finite math techniques frequently at work to solve problems related to non-linear partial differential equations. I can help with tensor notation and any matrix related operations.


Project Management

In addition to a doctor of science degree from GWU, I have an MBA from GMU focused on national defense acquisition. My work experience has been managing ACAT programs for the Navy, research projects for DARPA, and many others. I have training in project management software including Microsoft Project, statistical process tools like SPSS and R, and many others. I am a well versed in dynamic complexity of business dynamics approaches in the style Peter Senge in The Fifth Discipline.
