I tutor because I care how students do in their academic work. I was taught to be an academic sort from a very early age, and I love all forms of learning. All that is really needed is desire and a firm foundation of success to build upon. To reiterate - I teach because I love academics and I care about them!
As for me personally, I attended Michigan State University on a National Merit Scholarship, where I studied Astronomy and Geology. After MSU, I joined the Air Force, where I served as a Fighter Pilot in the infamous F-4 Phantom. I traveled a lot, having visited all 50 states and several countries in Europe. I also completed my Master's Degree in Geochemistry, from MSU.
When I left the Air Force, I went to Boston College Law School, graduating magna cum laude. I spent most of my law time as a chemical and biochemical patent attorney, and I learned a lot in that capacity.
Practicing law was OK, but I yearned to get into teaching, so I entered a Geochemistry PhD program at The University of Chicago. I passed my oral and written exams, and selected a thesis project of measuring oxygen isotope ratios in organic compounds in meteorites (to determine if these compounds came from interstellar space or were synthesized "locally.") Late in life, however, I was blessed with the birth of twins, James and Margaret, and I decided to leave the University to raise my children.
In sum, I would say that I love to teach people what I know, and I do so after having synthesized my knowledge and associated it with other things I have learned.
I look forward to helping you succeed, as other teachers have helped me.
