Hi.

I am a university research professor in electrical engineering who has more than 25 years' background in university math/physics teaching. I am very interested in helping motivated students at all levels. Tutoring appeals to me because I believe that any motivated student can improve themselves in math/physics with the right guidance. It is very inspiring when I can help a student 'click' with the material.

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.

Algebra 1

I am a research professor in electrical engineering and use mathematics fluently at all levels. I am quite capable of explaining and helping students overcome their difficulties

Algebra 2

My background includes a dual major in math and physics at the undergraduate level (summa cum laude). I am now a professor in Electrical Engineering and have taught a number of classes at different university levels including math at the freshman level which includes material from algebra, trigonometry, precalculus and calculus. This background makes it possible to understand where students may have conceptual problems and to address them

Calculus

I am a university professor in electrical engineering who uses calculus in my everyday research work. Therefore, I am able to help students with calculus at all levels from Cal 1 to Vector Calculus, Diff. Eq. and Linear Algebra. I also have taught math based classes at a freshman level so I understand many of the problems confronting students

Differential Equations

I am a research professor in electrical engineering. I regularly used differential equations in research as well as in teaching. For example, differential equations are used in the first EE linear systems course.

Electrical Engineering

I am a research professor in electrical engineering. I am able to provide expert guidance on most undergraduate course material in EE.

Linear Algebra

I am a research professor in electrical engineering. I regularly use linear algebra in research as well as in teaching. For example, linear algebra is a critical part of the electromagnetics course I teach where coordinate system transformations are extensively used.

MATLAB

I am a research professor in electrical engineering. I regularly program in Matlab as part of my research In addition, I teach a Matlab course quite regularly.

Physics

I am a university professor in Electrical Engineering. My research activities provide a strong background in many areas of physics from optics, electro-magnetics, mechanics and modern physics including quantum physics. I am quite familiar with student difficulties from high school through undergraduate level.

Great tutor!! Very friendly!! — Very knowledgeable guy, he really knew his Electrostatics and Magnetostatics. Helped me get through some tricky concepts that I couldn't figure out on my own. My only regret is not finding him sooner. ...
