I am a semi-retired electrical engineer and part time math adjunct teacher at a local college who immensely enjoys teaching, either one-to-one or in a class. I have found that there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach that really works for math, and that students frequently see math problems in quite different ways. Rather than strictly following the standard, text-book methods, my approach is first to learn how the student is thinking about the problem, and teach the material from that viewpoint. Whether you need a little help getting that last bit of clarity on the subject, or are completely lost and bewildered, I can help.

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.

Electrical Engineering

I have been a practicing electrical engineer for over 30 years, engaged in the design, analysis, fabrication, and testing of analog, microwave and RF circuits. When I entered the field, in 1979, there were no commercially available software packages to do circuit design/analysis. So I frequently was called on to generate the equations and Fortran code to analyze and optimize the circuits. This provided me with a deep understanding of the circuit theory and mathematical methods used to compute and optimize the response.

Also, one of my assignments was to teach a senior level circuits analysis class at Stonybrook University in NY, (ESE 311, Analog Integrated Circuits). The class went very well; I enjoyed the student interaction and I believe that the students enjoyed the class as well.

Finally, I would say that over the last 32 years, I have probably learned more from my mistakes (both technical and political) than from the jobs that went smoothly, which provided me information I think would serve engineering students well as they begin their career.

Logic

A few years ago, I taught a math course at Brookdale College (MA 136). The course was divided in 3 units, one of which was Logic, dealing with If-Then statements (implication), definitions and applications of converse, inverse, contrapositive statements. Venn diagrams and binary arithmetic were used as tools to analyze and solve the logical problems presented.

Additionally, a fair amount of my undergraduate coursework at Polytechnic covered digital logic circuits which can be used to provide an alternative point of view to the problems.
