Focus - My focus is on educational counseling. For ACT/SAT preparation, I combine content and strategy tailored specifically to you. Combined with abilities testing, I can help you be more focused, more energized, more confident and more able to benefit fully from what college life has to offer. If you are making a career decision, I tailor my Highlands Ability Test conference with you to reflect your specific aptitudes and personality and work with you to develop and chart your own special course.  

Strengths - As a former University Chemistry Professor, I have a unique perspective in understanding college students' needs and can help you navigate to find your own pathway. For tutoring, I teach towards your natural strengths and can cover on all subject areas tested on the exam, or I can focus on a particular subject of your choosing. I work to boost your confidence while you master the material. 

Experience - I have been involved in oceanographic scientific research and teaching since 1989.  I received my Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of California, Santa Cruz in 1995 and was an Assistant Professor of Chemistry in the Environmental Science and Policy Department at California State University, Monterey Bay starting in 1996. For the past ten years, I have been teaching and developing science curriculum at various non-profit, public and private High Schools on the Monterey Bay Peninsula.  I administer the Highlands Ability Battery and  have developed  comprehensive and personal tutoring courses for both the ACT and SAT college admissions tests.
