I worked in the high-tech semiconductor industry as a Process Engineer for 15 years at various companies in the Bay Area. In addition after moving to Tuolumne county in 2006, I have worked at Sonora High School and Soulsbyville School teaching mathematics and AP Physics. My goal here is to teach you to the best of my ability and bring some inspiration that will drive you to consider approaching a career path in science and teaching others as well.
Physics unpacks critical thinking and getting you ready to understand everything that moves around you. I am looking forward to working with you and together to create a very positive and collaborative environment! Your success matters and the part you control the most is your genuine effort!
I have an M.Sc. Physics (with an emphasis in Solid State Physics) with a minor in Math from the University of Bucharest - Romania (1992). I also have a teaching credential in Europe as well as in the USA. I love to teach and inspire students to strive for their best and enjoy seeing real progress at any level! As long we are on a positive slope we are good! Effort and persistence are the keys!
Seeing the growth in all of you is the most rewarding experience!
I love my family and enjoy taking trips together, hiking, cooking, and swimming.
