I am a recent college graduate from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. I graduated with honors, with a degree in Computer Engineering and minors in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science. I have a strong passion for mathematics and helping people. As an undergraduate, I worked on campus as a tutor for the mathematics and physics departments. I am knowledgeable in mathematics up to college level differential equations and statistics; however, I can also provide supplemental instruction in subjects such as physics, and computer science.

I am a strong believer in focusing on reinforcing the methodology taught in the classroom whenever possible. Teachers and college professors typically test the way they teach; so I focus on helping students understand the concepts as well as their teacher's preferred approach in order help students preform well on tests.

I also believe that every student is different and that tutors need to be able to adapt to different learning styles. I will always start a potential tutoring relationship by trying to get a good understanding of the student's learning style and then developing an effective approach for teaching the subject matter based on that learning style.

For help with any courses listed on my page feel free to contact me. I look forward to working with you.

C

I have been programming in C for about 5 years now and I write C code for my job on a daily basis. I can offer assistance in C programming at a beginner's level. Topics include data types, logic and control statements, arrays, strings, pointers, structures, file I/O, command line arguments, and recursion.

Computer Engineering

I graduate with honors with my Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. As most with most undergraduate degree programs, my undergraduate studies provided the necessary knowledge base approach problems I would face in my profession. Specifically, my program helped me to "develop practical engineering knowledge, skills, and ways of thinking."

I now use the knowledge a career software developer for embedded systems. My undergraduate experience combined with my real life application in my career makes me comfortable offering assistance in most Undergraduate Computer Engineering courses. Please feel free to contact me to inquire about my availability to help with a particular course.

Computer Science

I graduated with my minor in Computer Science from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. I have been programming since high school and I have experience with Java, C, C++, and Python.

My minor in Computer Science gave me a good mix of theory and application in the topics of software development, computer organization, database systems, and software engineering. Currently I use the knowledge gained from my minor as a career software developer.

My experience with computer science makes me qualified to offer assistance with basic computer science topics such as algorithm development, good coding practices, process methods, object oriented design, file I/O, logic and control statements, and data structures.

Differential Equations

I completed Differential Equations for Honors Students at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. I passed the course with an A as a sophomore and tutored students in the course for the remainder of my undergraduate career. I am very comfortable with treatment of first and second order differential equations as covered in most undergraduate Differential Equations courses. Topics covered include methods of substitution on simple higher order equations, linear equations and systems of linear
equations with constant coefficients, methods of undetermined coefficients and variation of parameters, Laplace transforms, series solutions, linear algebra and matrix methods of solutions.

Linear Algebra

Linear Algebra was my final math course for my minor in Mathematics. I received perfect scores on all the exams in this course and was excused from the final. I am very comfortable with all of the topics I covered in this subject, including vector and matrix operations, matrix inverses, eigenvectors, and eigenvalues equations of lines and planes, vector spaces, linear transformations,
change of basis, diagonalization of matrices, inner products and orthonormal bases.

Linux

I am currently a professional computer engineer. All of my development is completed in the Linux environment. I am very familiar with navigating in GUI based Ubuntu platforms as well as the more terminal style CentOS platform. I can provide beginner level support with Linux and performing basic tasks such as installing packages and setting up a development environment.

Logic

As a programmer, I work with logic in my development everyday. My experience with logic spans both my applied mathematics and computer science backgrounds. I earned a minor in both subjects along with my bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering. I am qualified to assist students with many of the sub-fields including set theory, recursion, and proofs.

Outstanding patient tutor. Felix is extremely patient and flexible. He took the time to understand the issues my son was having with the subject matter and addressed each issue. He also reviewed previous assignments to assess where and why my son was having difficulties. He also provided my son some insight into what types of classes would be beneficial for his college major. I think his age, patience, and teaching styl ...
