About Norbert

I have a love for mathematics and problem solving. I have a bachelor's degree in computer science and mathematics with extensive experience in the aerospace/defense industry. With this background I want to dispense my knowledge and expertise to others, in a way that encourages the confidence of learners.

My approach varies depending on the unique needs and learning styles of the individual student. I promote an understanding of given subjects to students and allow them to think for themselves with minimal rote memorization. This includes simplifying the material so it is better understood, with concrete examples indicating practicality of the topic. I begin from a base where the student is comfortable and proceed to new concepts in an easy transition. With this approach I will help the students pass their exams and have a better appreciation of the subject matter.

In the past I have helped learners from diverse range of ages, from elementary school students with basic arithmetic to students in college and the work place in areas of software development. Age is not prohibitive to understanding - anyone at any age can learn new concepts, and I am here to help them succeed.

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.

ACT Math

I have a bachelor’s degree in computer science and mathematics and have extensive experience in the aerospace and defense industry. As part of my experience in these areas I have had to utilize the basic math that is tested on the ACT.

Computer Science

I have a bachelor's degree in computer science and have extensive experience in the aerospace/defense arena. A main part of this experience has been developing of efficient algorithms and data structure that is part of the computer science discipline. This includes understanding time and memory utilization as part of program design and implementation, what is possible to actually use the computer to achieve and what is not really feasible. All these considerations are needed for a proper, efficient implementation of a given program. This is more related to design philosophy and principles, than the final implementation.

Differential Equations

I have a bachelors degree in computer science and mathematics and extensive experience in software development. Coming from an aerospace environment, I have dealt with differential equations and have had to implement computer solutions for these problems. This involved solving the equations directly or implementing numerical related solutions. With this background, I am very familiar with them and feel confidant of relaying this information to others.

Discrete Math

I have over 10 years of experience developing software for major aerospace/defense industry.
As part of the development algorithms and the programs developed from them I have used extensively basic concepts of discrete math. In particular this has included graph theory, particularly related to tree structures, and Boolean algebra. Also, logic and its related theory and details was a must aspect of program to insure that the programs worked properly. My main approach was hands on understanding of principles to achieve the final correct result and understanding by others.
