About Mark

I have over 15 years of experience as a technical writer and over 8 years as a tutor in math, computer science and engineering. As a writer, I know that clear, concise explanations are critical for learning. As a tutor, I make sure my explanations are not only clear and concise, but are presented in a step-by-step fashion that the student can easily understand and follow.

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from San Jose State University and a CSET credential for Geomerty, Statistics and Probability. I also have taken numerous courses in the arts and graphic design. On occasion, I also tutor drawing and the principles of technical illustration. I also create and publish ebooks and course material on mathematics.

Driven by my interest in mathematics and graphic design, I create and code graphic design tools, 3D graphic algorithms and design computer image generation programs. These programs are based on algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus and engineering concepts and formulas I have studied and devised as well as on insights I have gained from teaching, writing and illustrating.

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.

Adobe Flash

I have written scores of Flash AS3 programs (thousands of lines of code) and I have approximately 100 hours of online Flash AS3 tutoring experience. I have a complete portfolio of Flash AS3 lessons I offer and over 130 articles on Flash AS3 programming that I have written. I took computer programming classes as part of my electrical engineering curriculum and was required to program as an engineer at Fairchild Semiconductor, Exar Integrated Systems and National Semiconductor.

Drawing

I have taken over 30 credits in art, graphic design and drawing. I have drawn thousands of pen and ink drawings. I have written and illustrated a 150 page book on the art of 3D perspective (1, 2 and 3 point perspective) and I have created an online automated graphic design program.

Electrical Engineering

I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering in 1979 from San Jose State University.

I worked as an electronics engineer and technical writer as an employee and contractor at numerous integrated circuits and electronics design automation companies, such as: National Semiconductor, Exar Integrated Systems, Fairchild Semiconductor, Synopsys, Avant, Wyspry, BCC Communications, and others.

I am currently developing an electronics and electrical engineering formula review guide.
