My years as a UCLA student were great memorable years. I worked as TA and RA at UCLA, while attending classes. I tutored my classmates as well as middle school, high school and college students outside UCLA, in math (prealgebra to calculus at all levels, including multivariable, and more), and also physics at all levels including college and university, supporting myself financially that way. It was lots of fun working with students, as it is still today.
During my many years of work in the industry as an engineer and also computer software developer, I was actively involved in C programming, UNIX core/kernel system software and device drivers, X server and X Windows, and other software and firmware design and development.
I've also worked for many years in areas of technology involving electronics, mathematical modeling and simulation, design and development of precision laser sources, and also critical components of several supersonic aircraft designs, with high national visibility, including the stealth bomber. My work was primarily applying my knowledge of advanced mathematics and physics to practical design problem solving projects.
Over several decades of teaching and tutoring experience, I've come to the realization that different students think and learn in different ways; thus, my tutoring style must be adapted to particular talents, aptitude, resources and needs of each student individually, and as such there is no "one size fits all" style.
