I graduated from the Navy's Nuclear Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering Schools. Obtained a BS Degree in Computer Science from Chapman University in Orange County, and dual AS Degrees in Computer Technology and Electronic Technology from Grossmont College in El Cajon, CA. I have used Algebra, Geometry, Precalculus, and Calculus along with Chemistry and Physics in serving as a Nuclear Engineer for the US Navy on six different submarines for 20 years, as a Software Program Analysis for the Shuttle Team at Lockheed Martin, and as Senior Instructor for 18 years at Zilog, Lockheed Aerospace, and Sun Microsystems. I have tutored over 200+ students during the last 30+ years in Elementary Math through Calculus, Physics, and Chemistry with excellent results. Encompassing SATs, ACTs, AP Calculus, AP Chemistry, and AP Physics.
I taught Math and Calculus at Sun Microsystems in order to write programs for their systems. I also covered Math and Calculus with engineers at Lockheed in order understand the orbits of the Satellites and the Shuttle in space. I have taught at UC Santa Cruz, UC Berkley, and De Anza College Extensions Courses. I tutored many students during the last 40 years in various courses with excellent results.
