About Eng

I have a passion for math since I was a little boy back in Cambodia. I was educated in a French education environment.

I came to the US to pursue mathematics and obtained a 4 year Bachelor's Degree in two years. Upon graduation, I went to complete my graduate at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. There I have receive two Masters one in Computer Science, the other one in Electrical & System Engineering. I am currently working in the industry as a CAD Manager, and live in the Bay Area.

In this position at my company I have conducted classes on programming, learning how to use design tools to a wide range of designers and layout engineers. It is my deep belief that only through sound teaching that one can be productive and effective in all that we do every day and each day in our lives.

I am very patient when I teach or when I help my co-workers. I always want them to accept, understand and digest all the things I want to convey so that they can use what they learn to solve future problems.

When I teach, I always remember my stumbling blocks when I was exposed to the subject the first time, and feel that 10 out 10 times I will find out the student's stumbling block. I get such joy when I see them (students) overcome their temporary weakness. I also believe in repetition by reopening/reviewing/revisiting old issues.

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.

UNIX

I have been writing Csh/Ksh, awk, sed, grep for close to 20 years. I worked at Sun Microsystem as a CAD Engineer which required much scripting. In my current position at Micrel Inc, I am their CAD manager and also Unix/Linux support. I gave classes to engineers on these topics. Humbly I believe I am quite good at this.
