I am a semi-retired Electrical Engineer who has a passion for learning and for passing on this passion to the world. I actually have four (4)years of college teaching experience, teaching math, science, and engineering courses early in my career. I believe it is imperative that we help our young people improve their math and science skills in order to compete in a world economy. My three boys have all completed college and I would like to think I had something to do with that; I have instilled in them a desire to learn and a desire to continue to improve through additional learning. Learning should be a lifelong experience.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Business

I have spent over 40 years in the High Tech business, starting out as an engineer in product development, after graduating with a BSEE, and then moving into Product Marketing, Strategic Marketing, Sales, Executive Sales, Operations Manager, and CEO. I have worked with start-up companies and large industrial product companies as well. I started my career actually in Junior Achievement, where, while in High School, we developed a small business. I believe I am well versed in most areas of business operation, financing, and idea generation.

Career Development

I have spent over 40 years in the public sector and have spent some of that time as a recruiter of talent for a variety of companies. I believe it is important to plan one's career as I have done. I have the skills to help a person make the right decisions.

Electrical Engineering

I graduated with a BSEE from Illinois Institute of Technology and then taught electrical engineering courses for four years before going into industry. While in industry I worked on product development, marketing, sales, engineering, quality teams, and used my Electrical Engineering education and experience throughout my career.

Linear Algebra

I have spent many years using linear algebra in my career and also in other mathematical subjects for which linear algebra is an important pre-requisite.

Marketing

My career has spanned over 30 years, some of which has been spent as a Product Marketing Manager, Strategic Marketing Manager, Director of Marketing, and Vice President of Marketing. I believe I have the skill set to direct anyone in this field and help them understand product development, why a product or service if offered, demand creation, product positioning, pricing, and of course setting up the proper sales channels.

Tax Preparation

I am proficient in Turbo Tax and very familiar with the tax laws. Turbo Tax is an amazing tool that takes you through a journey so that you use every part of the tax code to your advantage and make sure you obey every rule.
