About Erol

I liked all math subjects, algebra, calculus including differential, advanced analysis, etc. all my life starting from high school years. During university years and afterwards, I spent considerable time with numerical analysis and differential equations.

After obtaining my PhD in Mechanical/Aerospace Engineering, I taught 10+ years at 3 universities in California , CSULB, Northrop and CSUN in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering areas. I had possibly well over 2500+ students in my several classes. These classes, in addition to engineering classes, included several math classes, like advanced analysis, numerical analysis, etc. I taught several courses many times. One can learn the subjects and understand the concepts only in this way; without this, it is just memorizing the equations. I supervised 14 MS theses (based on partial differential equations with numerical solutions) and got them completed in time.

Afterwards, when I was working in industry I did tutoring for about two years for high school students (algebra) and engineering students (strength of materials, advanced analyses, dynamics/statics, thermodynamics, and heat transfer). Later, I worked in 12+ companies and was involved with the most complicated engineering analyses applied in industry including probabilistic analyses. In several companies, I did statistical analysis for test data.

I like teaching younger people to help their development and achieve their objectives. My experience in teaching is that applying the formulas and working the numbers are not that difficult for most people, but the subjects are not easy to understand conceptually. I explain these concepts generally and give specific examples so that these concepts are understood.

There is one problem in education. Most math classes are being taught at schools as pure math classes with not much relevant references to real applications in the industry. So a graduating person (I was a supervisor to a large group of young engineers recently) does not know what he/she has studied for what. This is very important for technically oriented students.

Recently I was called for help (outside WyzAnt) for a K-11 student. She was assigned 6-7 problems, she could not do them and they went to a GMAT teacher. She could not do the problems which included the rate concepts. I did all the problems, explained to her and she got 100 from her test.

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.

Algebra 1

I have obtained a PhD in mechanical/aerospace engineering. These areas are most heavily populated with math subjects. Math is the foundation for engineering. I have been math oriented all of my life. And I taught several math courses at 3 universities in CA.

Algebra 2

I earned a PhD in mechanical/aerospace engineering. These areas are most heavily populated with math subjects. Math is the foundation for engineering. I have been math oriented all of my life. And I taught several math courses at 3 universities in CA. I have taught all sorts of advanced math classes many times.

Calculus

PhD in mechanical/aerospace engineering. These areas are most heavily populated with math subjects. Math is the foundation for engineering. I have been math oriented all of my life. And I taught several math courses at 3 universities in CA.

Career Development

During the last 4 years I was responsible for the personal and technical (career) development of about 120 young engineers. I fed these group with daily inputs (technical and procedural) for 4 years. To each of them, I gave a yearly skill (career) development test (some of them several times, total possibly 200+ times, watching their progress).

I reviewed well over 50 resumes and interviewed 12+ people for positions in the company.
In the past I taught well over 50-100 classes at 3 universities in California. I have had learning development experience with possibly over 2500 students.

Civil Engineering

First, Mechanical (my present tutoring) and Civil Engineering have two areas of subjects in common. Strength of materials leading to structures, and fluid mechanics. While saying structures, this also includes dynamics and vibrations which are common.

Secondly, recently in the end of 2015 and start of 2016, I took all the Civil Engineering PE exam review courses at IIT. Although there was nothing I did not understand in all these, I intend to tutor in Fluid Mechanics, Strength of Materials & Structures and Basic Cost Analysis. I have been doing structural analysis in industry for 25+ years. Also, my present student Ylan's son is a Civil Engineering student already.

Differential Equations

I have a PhD in Mechanical/Aerospace Engineering. I taught 10+ years at 3 universities in California, CSULB, CSUN, and Northrop University, in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering areas. During this time, I had possibly well over 2500+ students in my many classes (well over 50). In addition to engineering classes, I also taught several math classes, like advanced engineering analysis, numerical analysis which included partial differential equations, etc. I supervised 14 MS theses (based on partial differential equations) and got these theses completed in time.

Mechanical Engineering

I have a PhD in Mechanical/Aerospace Engineering. I am California registered Professional Mechanical Engineer. I taught 10+ years at three universities in California, CSULB, CSUN, and Northrop University in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering areas. I like helping younger people to achieve their objectives. I am very patient instructor and will take you step by step through the difficulties to success.

Physics

I would be best in thermodynamics (I taught 12+ times), heat (I taught 5+ times), mechanics of materials (5+ times) and mechanics/dynamics (16+ times).

Precalculus

I earned a PhD in mechanical/aerospace engineering. These areas are most heavily populated with math subjects. Math is the foundation for engineering. I have been math oriented all of my life. And I taught several math courses at 3 universities in CA.

Extremely Knowledgeable Tutor — My son just finished his first year of college at Cal Poly Pomona majoring in Civil Engineering. He decided to go to summer school and is taking variable calculus and vector statics. It's tough to locate good tutors and I was worried about finding a tutor with an engineering background that could help him in preparing for finals. Erol was the perfect tutor having an exceptional educational and pra ...
