About Robert


I learned to read at a very early age. I read all of Jack London, Victor Hugo (including Les Misérables), Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov when I was 14 years old. I have developed certain techniques for reading that are different from the conventional approach. Although I have no certification, I am confident that I can help any age child learn to read in my first visit.

I have always had a very strong grasp of the English language since I read so many novels as a child. I have a natural talent for English composition from my experiences as a child reading so many books. Despite the fact that I have no certification, I am confident I can help any child start learning to read in my first visit.

I taught myself electronics at home 36 years ago using Heathkit Home Study Electronics courses. I went back to school 24 years ago to get a BS of Electronics Engineering Technology from DeVry Institute of Technology in Pomona, CA. I began the 3 year course at the age of 43, surrounded by High School graduates who were 18 or 19 years old. Out of the 100 students who began the course in June of 1992, (most of whom were fresh out of High School), only about 40 completed the 3-year course and graduated. I was among them.

Since getting my BSEET degree, I have held many different positions in high tech companies, Applied Materials, among them. In November of 2013 I joined the Arduino Forum and began learning about Microprocessor controlled circuits at the hobbyist level. In 1984 to 1989, before getting my degree I had worked on microprocessor controlled hospital bedside patient monitors, and in 1989, I was chosen by that company to become a part of the technician support team responsible for test and repair of those computer boards. Working with Arduino hobbyist circuits is completely different because each Arduino user has complete control of both the design of the circuits and the software, unlike working as a technician where everything is beyond your control. In the last 3 years I have developed extensive experience with sensor intensive robotic circuitry, including motors.

I feel I am in an excellent position to teach young students how to design, program and use electronic circuits of all types: analog, digital and microprocessor controlled.

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 35 years hands on experience with electronics. I taught myself electronics at home 36 years ago using Heathkit Home Study courses. I cross-trained myself from Restaurant cook (with 12 years cooking experience) to electronics technician. I went back to school at the age of 43 and was one of the 40 students who completed the 3 year course that started with 100 students of which 60 % dropped out or failed. I graduated from DeVry Institute of Technology (Pomona, CA) in 1995 with my BSEET (Bachelor of Science of Electronics Engineering Technology) and was recruited by a semiconductor company in Santa Barbara for a job as a wafer-fab maintenance technician.
