About Eric

I am an award-winning technical writer with over forty years' experience in electronics and science. My specialty is teaching difficult subjects in a pain-free manner, using common experience and humor to make subjects come alive. My most recent accomplishment is the authoring of a radio science book, to be published by the American Radio Relay League later this year.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 was a development engineer with the UCLA Plasma Physics department between 1994 and 2014, designing a wide range of specialized instrumentation for ionospheric research. I was involved in the original equipment design of Hipas Observatory and subsequently at HAARP. I have two published books on radio science and radio publication, by ARRL, and am a two-time recipient of the William Orr, W6SAI technical writing award, conferred by the ARRL. I am also a co-author of the W5YI commercial and amateur radio training materials.

English

I am an award-winning technical writer, with over 100 published articles and four books to my credit. I am self employed and have flexible hours. I look forward to working with you!

Geometry

As an electrical engineer, I use geometry and trigonometry every day. I feel it's much easier to teach math when incorporating practical applications.

MATLAB

I have done a great deal of MATLAB programming both for system control and modeling while in the UCLA plasma physics department. I have written about MATLAB in two of my published books on radio propagation and radio science. I have created several interfaces between MATLAB and Origin, as well.
I currently own an operate an R&D electronics company that does a considerable amount of modeling using MATLAB and similar programs.
