I tutor high school students who are preparing to take the SAT and ACT college board exams.   I tutor also for other tests and for subjects ranging from English to math and physics.
I'm finding this work quite rewarding -- it's gratifying to help a student prepare for an exam and then find out that he or she has achieved a high score. 

Helping me with this tutoring project are Pam and my brother Michael. I'm very thankful for their support.

Over the past three years I've conducted SAT and ACT preparation classes and workshops at a number of East Bay high schools, including Berkeley High, El Cerrito High, Head-Royce, and Oakland Tech.   I've enjoyed meeting the students and also their teachers.   Teaching high school -- that's a challenging and admirable calling!

Since 2010, I've been conducting PSAT and SAT/ACT preparation workshops at UC Berkeley, where I am also an advisor to a program that helps high school students prepare for college.
Over the past several years, I've written a number of articles for the "Berkeley Daily Planet" and for "Tikkun Magazine," which you will find here: Writings

To explore the origins and destiny of German social democracy a century ago, I created this website: The Promise of Social Democracy: Rosa Luxemburg, Eduard Bernstein, and Hannah Arendt


In the spring of 2006, I worked with UC Berkeley students on a "Stem Cell Research and Public Policy" project (www.barglow.com/scrapp). Also see:
Stem Cell Research Advocacy.  For entertainment, see: BioChem 101

I've written a theater piece about the life and times of my mother Hildegard, who was an actress on the German stage before emigrating to this country in the late 30s.  In the summer of 2005, we held a reading at my brother Peter's house, a few blocks away from where I live in Berkeley.  Then in 2006 we shipped the play (along with my brother and his wife Margret, Pam, co-author Joanne, and myself) over to Dresden Germany where the play was read twice at the Synagogue there.  See:
www.wandertheater.org.  Both in Berkeley and Dresden, these performances went pretty well, combining words and music, meaning and enjoyment.
