Very experienced teacher & tutor:
- Over 30 years college teaching as an Adjunct Professor at several colleges. (appointments in: Computer Science; Math & Statistics; Physics)
- Over 20 years private tutoring for High School Regents, AP, and college subjects -- including mathematics (algebra, geometry, pre-calc, calculus, statistics, etc.), physical sciences (physics, chemistry, earth science), computer science & programming, as well as geography, history, economics, and writing.
- Over 5 years of test-prep teaching and tutoring - SAT/PSAT, ACT, GRE, and MCAT. (Trained and certified by both Kaplan and Princeton Review.)
- Curriculum developer and/or trainer for numerous employee training programs, as well as for Civil Service exams and the Math Teacher Certification (NYSTCE) exam.

My professional career was mostly in computer software development and management at Long Island companies such as Grumman, Robotic Vision Systems, and Brookhaven National Lab (from which I retired early, in 1999).

I am also a professional writer, with several thousand published pages (mostly technical papers, surveys, and manuals, plus many industry articles), as well as a radio broadcaster (hosting two weekly talk shows on a noncommercial radio station, for the past seven years).

My B.S. in Mathematics and most of my 85+ postgraduate credits are from Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn, where I was also a Physics PhD candidate (ABD) in X-Ray Diffraction & Crystallography. (Several years of additional postgraduate training in Computer Science at Stony Brook U. and at Poly)
