My background in Electrical Engineering provides me with a unique approach toward teaching mathematics and/or physics:
First, I am able to break down mathematical processes into specific, discreet steps and I look for ways to make these steps cover the widest base of problem solving. My experience has shown me that, particularly in mathematics, this systematic approach aids students in assimilating the information more quickly and easily.
I also approach mathematics as a foreign language; this, too, seems to be a unique, novel approach. I can attest that this approach has proven particularly successful in students mastering word problems.
I am an amateur cartoonist. Being able to sketch pictures is a definite boon in working problems in physics. I have also applied this talent in illustrating math concepts and problems, which seems to help a lot of students better understand how to solve problems, in mathematics, physics, and electronics.
Finally, I love physics, mathematics, and electronics. I feel that my enthusiasm breaths live into topics that, initially for some, seem like "just the dry crunching of numbers."
