EducationChalmers University of Technology (Sweden), MS Engineering Physics, GPA ~3.4
Chalmers University of Technology, PhD Theoretical Physics, GPA 4.0
In earning my PhD, I studied at UC Santa Barbara, under Prof. Horia Metiu, and had the pleasure of weekly theory sessions with who would become a 1998 Nobel Prize winner, the brilliant and equally humble Prof. Walter Kohn.
ExperienceI started teaching math right after I got out of my military service. Later I taught classical and quantum mechanics to undergrad and grad students while getting my PhD, both years being named TA of the year. After a lengthy career in executive engineering management, I commenced tutoring again about 8 months ago and have a growing reputation as a very effective tutor (see, e.g. WyzAnt reviews).
I always enjoyed tutoring, as I connect easily with youth, have a keen sense of bringing the best out of each individual, and relish when they do well.
I have published about 40 scientific papers, been invited to give about as many lectures, including keynote speeches, won some prestigious innovation awards, and hold about a dozen patents or so.
HobbiesI am a voracious reader (200+ books/year). I enjoy watching and participating in a number of (mainly European) sports, and I fiddle with my guitar with little progress over the years, although I did play in a band for several years, somehow. I have three wonderful children that are doing great academically (still waiting for one of them to ask for help).
