About Michael

Hello, I am a retired professor from a university in China, father of a girl of a 16 year old at a high school in a city of Los Angeles county. Just like your pursuit now, I had completed my advanced US degrees in 1993 (M.S.) and 2005 (Ph.D.). I believe those give my career value lifelong. I have been an engineer, consultant and professor either in US (15 years) or China (20 years). I helped my daughter in her study, and I want to help more kids for their growth! Mandarin Chinese is my mother-language, math is my most favorite subject at college, and the computer and electrical engineering is my major with many years' working skills. My working language can be either English or a bilingual Mandarin. I had been teaching many classes in the areas of communication, computer network, radio and propagation, fiber-optics, probability, math modeling and more. As you may know, many core principles from the engineering courses are penetrated through mathematical representation. So the math is important! In addition to teaching, I had been supervising college senior-student graduation designs and advising post-graduates student theses. I understand students and observed their lives ! I enjoy working with students in these two ways: (1) Regular meeting once or twice in certain period of time that I will be able to get involved in your study plan to work together for approaching an objective; (2) Need-based meeting for solving problems such as preparation of tests. I will require you provide information about your course and problems of difficulty and be prepared before we meet.

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.

Algebra 2

Algebra is the basis for learning advanced math to college so you have to overcome it. I have been a professor in electrical engineering, and often
utilizing the algebra knowledge for modeling and analyzing the physical world. I have a high-school 9th grade daughter and supervised her the math assignments at home every day.

Chinese

I was born in Shanghai China and mandarin Chinese is my native language. I have been a teacher (assistant teacher, lecturer, and professor) in universities in China over 10 years. Basically, the mandarin Chinese is my teaching language in the classroom. However, I also provide bilingual class teaching (mixed English and mandarin in textbook and speaking). I know how to make an individual teaching plan for a specific person's needs.

Electrical Engineering

I have four degrees: B.S. and M.S. from China, and M.S. and Ph.D. in U.S., all are about Electrical Engineering, and particularly focus on Communication, Signal, and Circuit. I have been teaching over 10 years up to now although most of my experience is in China. However, I taught in Louisiana State University in US as TA for a short time in early 90' and bilingual classes in China presently. The teaching methods about these areas are mainly in classroom with reading, explanation, and discussion and homework with problem-exercises and review, plus some necessary experiments for enhancing concepts.

Linear Algebra

The linear algebra was one of my engineering math courses when I studied at the college 30 years ago. The knowledge was frequently used in writing my degree thesis and research work. This course gives us the capability of modeling and analyzing the real world in which many factors are interconnected with linear relations. This subject is useful for engineering, statistics and many other disciplines.

Networking (Computer)

I have taught a course on Computer Networks and Communication for six years at University. I was involved in the industry certification in the U.S. I am a senior member of IEEE (Institute of Electronic and Electrical Engieers).
