EducationB. A., Amherst College, Ph.D, organic chemistry, University of California, San Diego.
I was a professor at University of North Carolina at Greensboro from 1993-2006 until retiring. Prior to UNCG I was a chemistry professor at Haverford College and then worked at the DuPont Experimental Station. I've also consulted for area chemical companies.
ExperienceI tutor in all aspects of organic chemistry. A special area of expertise is applications of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.
I'm particularly interested in finding ways of making clear such potentially difficult areas as stereochemistry and reaction mechanisms. My tutoring approach is patient and interactive with the goal of achieving maximum student comprehension with a minimum of memorization. I usually bring specially prepared materials to each tutoring session and the student leaves each session with a paginated set of notes.
HobbiesI'm married (wife Ann is an occupational therapist) with two daughters in graduate school (marine biology, Hawaii, Library and Information Science (LIS), UNCG. I'm also an avid kayaker, Vespa scooterist, and sometime musician (guitar, ukulele).
