I took an early retirement from Rolls-Royce and feel a bit bored at home now. Since I did well academically during my young years, and I did a lot tutoring works all the way from my undergraduate program to my Ph.D. program, I think I can do this again as my retirement activity.
I will get the chance to communicate with much younger people to keep me young. This activity is also in line with my future plan - doing charity work of helping poor kids in some part of the World.
I got my master's degree from the National Tsing-Hua University in Taiwan, which is like the MIT in US. I ranked top two at graduation thus got the honor of becoming a member of the Phi Tau Phi Scholastic Honor Society. I got my Ph.D. degree in the Aerospace Engineering department of University of Texas at Arlington. While in my Ph.D. program I tutored 4 kids, one of them is a highly motivated girl who eventually got admitted to either Stanford or Harvard. I also taught the Sunday schools in Churches many times.
I taught the undergraduate course "Dynamics" in the Mechanical Engineering Department of Oakland University about 15 years ago when I was working in the auto industry in Michigan. In my career I got 4 patents and have presented 30 papers in international conferences and reviewed more than 100 papers for journals and conferences.
I passed the "Engineer in Training" test about 25 years ago in Texas with a high score of 91 points. I also passed national exams for government officer positions and graduate school entry exams when I was in Taiwan. Those exams in Taiwan have typically only about 1 to 5% acceptance rate. Those records show my solid academic background in the math, mechanical engineering and physics areas. My 25 years of industrial experience in the US should also be helpful for the students.
I am fluent in both Chinese(Mandarin) and English, and can tutor easily in math and physics/sciences for middle school up to college levels.
