Note: I have set my tutoring rate to a very high rate because I unfortunately do not currently have time to take on new students. However, if you are willing to pay this very high price, I will consider tutoring you, but I would suggest you seek a tutor with a lower price point first. Thank you for understanding!

My name is David, but you can call me Mr. Number Cruncher. I have over 10 years of experience working in the field of Electrical Engineering. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from LeTourneau University and a Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Southern Methodist University. My GPA for each degree was above 3.5.

Along with my WyzAnt tutoring experience, I have almost three years of online tutoring experience as a certified Tutor.com Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry tutor. This gave me great experience in working with students at the high school and college level. Tutor.com has a rigorous training program that enabled me to learn adequate and proper tutoring techniques. I am the type of tutor that patiently provides just enough guidance to allow the student to solve the problem on their own. This builds their confidence and enables them to solve future problems without assistance.

I enjoy working with students and helping them learn to enjoy math as much as I do! For an engineer, I have a very outgoing personality. My second choice for a career would have been teaching high school math.

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking and camping with my family, playing soccer and playing Legos and cars with my 5-year-old and 8-year-old boys. My wife and I were recently blessed with a 3rd newborn son in Spring of 2013. I also enjoy playing board games, guitar, and drums.

Although I have experience in all levels of math, I am most comfortable tutoring the following subjects: Algebra I/II, Trigonometry, Geometry, Statistics, Linear Algebra, Discrete Math, and Precalculus. I am also willing to tutor many Electrical Engineering courses.

Thank you for considering me to provide your tutoring needs. I look forward to hearing from you!

Chess

I have been playing chess since I was in 2nd Grade. It is my favorite board game and I have been working with my 6 year old son to teach him the piece movements and basic game strategy.

Electrical Engineering

I have a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering (emphasis in Digital Signal Processing). It is a broad field of study. My area of expertise is strongest in the general Electrical Engineering studies (Circuits, Digital Logic, Electronics), Digital Signal Processing courses, and FPGA design (Verilog/VHDL).

Linear Algebra

I took a college level Linear Algebra course. Engineering courses rely heavily on Linear Algebra concepts.

Logic

I am an Electrical Engineer who has focused my career on Digital Logic Design. I have extensive expertise with both VHDL and Verilog hardware description languages. I have extensive expertise targeting Xilinx FPGAs and using Xilinx FPGA development tools including ISE, EDK and System Generator. Don't hesitate to contact me if you need assistance with general logic, digital logic, Verilog, VHDL or general FPGA design.

MATLAB

I used MATLAB & Simulink extensively while working on my Master's Degree in Electrical Engineering. I also have a lot of on-the-job experience with MATLAB.
