Information about Tutor Thurman Solano

Hello students, my name is Thurman R Solano. My friends call me Raymond or Ray, from my middle name. I was named after Thurman Munson who was a great New York Yankees captain and catcher, my mom is a Yankees fan. I was born and grew up in Queens and lived in Florida for a while as well when my parents moved. I started gaining an interest in the physical sciences when I was young from watching sci-fi shows/movies and books, which I still do. I have numerous hobbies among some which of course is baseball, collecting sci-fi memorabilia and props, reading and educating and playing with my 2 ?? year old black pug, David Banner.

For some reason, I got my AA from Miami Dade College in biology in a pre-medical track. I think at the time I was watching too much ER and thought I wanted to be an MD and I also hated organic chemistry. Once this phase blew over I went back into physics and obtained my BS in physics and math from Florida Atlantic University. Hating the year round heat, I went back to live in NYC and went to grad school at CUNY, The City College of New York to get my Masters degree in physics. I then went to Columbia University to take PhD courses in applied physics. I decided to put the PhD on hold as I wasn?t sure what to spend 5-6 years on. While studying to get my physics degrees, I was an adjunct professor (my first job) in mathematics and physics, which I have been doing for almost 10 years. As a physicist, I have also done a variety of research work, among other things, for almost 8 years in high-energy physics at Brookhaven Labs, bioengineering at MIT, optics/photonics at CCNY and nano/bio technology at Columbia. As a side job, I am a tutor at tutorsville and welcome any students in need of any math and physics help.
