Hello! My name is Casey from Old Town, ME. I am currently a Ground Segment (Electrical) Engineer in Hawthorne, CA. Here I help design and build communications equipment for the future of space travel.
I just finished my Master's in Electrical Engineering, with a focus in Aerospace Engineering (GPA 3.7/4.0) from UMaine. The focus of my graduate research was on space based electronics aimed at improving safety of astronauts. I graduated with a BS in Electrical Engineering from the University of Maine in 2014.
During my graduate career at UMaine I gained valuable experience as a teacher/tutor. I was a Teaching Assistant for 4 undergrad classes within the engineering department. These included 3 technical writing classes, and 1 introductory circuits course.
My subjects of expertise include the following: Circuit Design/Construction, Technical Writing, Calculus, Trigonometry, Geometry, Physics, Algebra, and basic Orbital Mechanics
I am also confident in the following software packages: MATLAB, Altium Design Studio, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Visio. All of these software suites are extremely important in succeeding in the science and engineering world.
As a tutor and/or teaching assistant, I strive to help the student's fully understand the concepts. Unlike many subjects, mathematics and physical sciences are not solely about memorization, but are about understanding and repeated exercises. As a tutor I can explain the base concepts, and help the student complete related examples. Aside from the listed subjects and software, I am open to teaching other electrical engineering related topics (soldering, PCB prototyping, electromagnetics, resume writing, etc.).
Feel free to contact me for more information. I can meet most evenings and weekends. Expect reply emails within a few hours. Hello! My name is Casey from Old Town, ME.

Casey is very pleasant. My son, 15, says he likes working with him, he is cool, and he is very efficient as they accomplished a lot more than I thought they would, while my son was still able to retain what he was learning. I think it is a nice fit for us.
Casey was very supportive and friendly while teaching me how to write codes in MATLAB. I appreciate how focused and driven he was to help me within the scope of time I had available. Casey is a very talented teacher.
My daughter is struggling with High School Honors Physics. I liked the fact that Casey has hands on experience in the field of Physics through his work at Spacex and seemed very knowledgeable.
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.
Both my Bachelors and Masters degrees are in Electrical Engineering, with a most recent GPA of 3.7/4.0. Along with my degrees, I have years of experience through electrical engineering research, teaching assistantships and summer internships.
I am very confident in my ability to perform electrical engineering tasks, as well as teach them to others. My focuses within EE have been hardware prototyping, communications systems, circuit design, and simulation through MATLAB.
Throughout my education and employment I have frequently used MATLAB. I have used this for a variety of large data analysis, and simulations.
One example of a MATLAB project I recently did was the simulation of a satellite trajectory from Earth orbit to Venusian orbit. Output of the simulation were plots of the orbits, orbital parameters, fuel consumption, etc.
My familiarity with MATLAB could easily be transferred to another student.
My educational background of electrical engineering required us to constantly apply the laws of physics. We were required to pass multiple entry level physics courses, followed by applying physics in nearly every upper level engineering course. Aside from my education, my employment has constantly relied on the use of physics. As a communications engineer, I use physics almost every day in designing and testing antenna systems.
