I am an Electrical Engineer with a 4 year Bachelors Degree in Electrical Engineering with many years of experience in Engineering.

How does that relate to tutoring? As part of my degree and my job, math and advanced math have been integral to my career.

I am available to tutor your child so that he or she has a good grade school, high school or college experience as part of their way to becoming an adult. Math is always a hard concept to get. With tutoring, the confusion is eliminated and the math makes sense.

There is nothing like getting it and good grades to help a child's feelings about school.

Method of Teaching:

Review with Student subject matter in detail. Explanation of the concept to the student. Examples illustrated and explained to show the student the subject he or she is required to understand.

Will explain the concept at the level of the student(make the subject easy, make sure to check for his/her understanding and follow through with examples with visual and verbal explanations.


Credentials: Bachelor of Science Electrical Engineering, 30 Years in the work place

Teaching of Electronics for one year in a vocational school

Potential Students: 5th Grade to College, Undergrad

Availability: Evenings 6 - 8, Saturdays 1 - 4

School can be fun when you know what your doing!

Other: I have submitted to a self background check through this web site to assure you that I am a solid upstanding person with nothing to hide.

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

My Algebra 1 experience includes factoring, polynominals, solving for a variable, solving for 2 variables, word problems among other topics in Algebra 1. I will work with your student to help them understand using sample problems and working through their homework.

Electrical Engineering

I am an electrical engineer with many years experience in the design of electrical and electronic circuits. My background and degree as well as years of helping junior level engineers is what I can offer to you as a tutor.

Elementary (K-6th)

My background as an engineer to include my college schooling and many years of work give me the background to help children better understand their math and school work. An engineering degree requires detailed understanding of all kinds of math.

My method of explaining problems so that anyone can understand them helps me to be a tutor to your child. It is rewarding to teach and help children get ahead in school.

While teaching vocational school for electronics, one of my students told me that I was his best teacher. I was able to connect to the students there and help them understand how to relate an electrical drawing to a bunch of electrical parts connected together by wires. These students came off the street and had no prior electrical background before this school effort.





My credentials include an Engineering Degree from an acredited US State University or Cleveland State University. My tutoring skills include time spent on this website as well as other tutoring done for my kids. In addition, I have tutored math at an advanced level, english at an elementary level.

Regards,
Phil
