Electrical Engineering

I have multiple degrees in electrical engineering. I worked as an Electrical Engineer at one of the premier R&D institutions - Bell Laboratories. In my career in Silicon Valley I have had responsibility for Product Marketing for some of the most complex products in the industry, which required daily application of my EE skills. To do my job I was required to maintain my currency in the prevailing technology, and thus to practice my EE skills .

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored several students in the K-6 demographic, whose parents sought me out through the website. I raised two sons, one with ADHD, via private school in San Francisco and helped them both to succeed. With my educational background, and my experience teaching as an adjunct professor, I am familiar with the pedagogical methods that can be used to help younger students.

Logic

I have advanced degrees in Electrical Engineering. Digital systems design and management is based on the Boolean algebra and symbolic logic. I applied the principles during eight years as an electrical engineer at one of the premier design centers in the world. In addition, I have taken multiple courses in logic both mathematical and philosophical. I am an adjunct professor and am well-versed in the pedagogical methods needed to tutor this discipline.

Marketing

I am a 25-year veteran of Silicon Valley, where all my experience has been in Marketing. I am proficient in Product Marketing, Channel Marketing, Field Marketing, Marketing Communications, and Solutions Marketing. I teach Business Marketing at the Graduate level to students from all over the world. I have been a consultant in the marketing field to top companies in the Bay Area.

Study Skills

I have experience in developing skills for grade school and high school students. I am raising two boys, one of whom suffers from ADHD and required extensive home coaching on study skills, I have worked with other students as a tutor. I am proficient in math and writing skills, and in helping to develop efficient and lasting skills such as outlining, estimating and mnemonic learning.
