Shen Ge tutors students in physics, math, Chinese (中文), coding and standardized tests in Houston. More specifically, they include Arithmetic, Geometry, Algebra, Trigonometry, Pre-calculus, AP Calculus, General Physics, AP Physics, College Physics, SAT, ACT, GMAT, and GRE. Due to COVID-19, I currently tutor ONLY VIRTUALLY. Please send me an email: shen AT shenge.us

Fees: $50 - $70 per hour in hour in increments of half hour at a minimum of 1 hour payable after each session. Prices depend on subject matter and distance. I am available for tutoring in-person or online in the greater Houston area -- preferably near NASA or within the 610 loop.

Shen Ge (aka Rocket Man) hosts SG2 on Space LIVE every Wednesday from 6:30 - 7:00 PM US Central Time. Jump in the discussion on all things space-related with the science-savvy Rocket Man, his frequent co-host Leonard Kramer and sometimes his guests. Hear about the "Space Cowboys" who create new tech in the space frontier, chat on the "Great Unknown", relax to some "Space Poetry", and yes...learn a little astrobiology, AKA "Shen Just Wants to Talk About Aliens". Remember: Look up. You never know what you might see!

Tune into ONLY weekly space show live in Houston every Wednesday from 6:30 - 7:00 PM US Central Time:
Current Episodes (2020 Fall to Present)
Past Episodes (before 2020)

I am improving the show all the time and can use your support to take it to next step with segments on creative space (poetry), space cowboys (entrepreneurship) and astrobiology (aliens). There will be descriptions of each intro to these segments -- both audio and video. Support Rocket Man and Houston’s only weekly space show on Patreon.
