About Egbert


Bio

I was born and raised in Germany, where I earned a Master's Degree and a Ph.D in Mechanical Engineering from one of the top Universities. I started working for a large, multi-national company and took the opportunity to transfer to the U.S. some 25 years ago. Since then, I have worked for large and small companies, held several consulting jobs, and I am now retired. For the past 5+ years I have taken on positions in teaching and tutoring in Engineering, Physics and Math at a local Community...

Since then, I have worked for large and small companies, held several consulting jobs, and I am now retired. For the past 5+ years I have taken on positions in teaching and tutoring in Engineering, Physics and Math at a local Community College.

With a total 35+ years experience in Industry and education, my goal in life is now to pass my knowledge on to the next generation.

If you have a curious mind and are looking to truly learn and understand "how things work", I can help you!

Microsoft Excel

Microsoft Excel

Spreadsheet software is the most powerful tool I have ever used for general, every-day analysis and evaluation. If I have to do the same or similar calculation more than once, I create a spreadsheet. It is easy to learn, powerful to use, and a great tool to visualize results and concepts in charts and graphs!

I am a native speaker, born and raised in Germany. I moved to the US almost 30 years ago, but we still speak German at home. I can help you with conversational applications, text reviews and grammar, plus European lore and destinations. Let me know how I can help you prepare for your next adventure!

Physics

My goal is to mentor students with my technical expertise, using real and virtual experiments. Physics is the foundation for many aspects not just in Science and Engineering, but even many daily activities. Physics help understand how things work and analyze their inner workings. Science goes beyond mere theory, there are very real and practical insights to be gained from applying the principles of Physics every day!
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Pre-Calculus finally ties "everything" together, from Arithmetic to Algebra and Trigonometry. With Precalc we can really analyze mechanisms and relationships between objects at a deeper level to help us understand "what is going on inside". Once we understand these concepts, it is really fun to finally appreciate the journey to get to this level!

Mechanical Engineering

My expertise is in Mechanical and Systems Engineering, and I have worked with Electrical, Electronic and Software Applications in cross-functional teams. My strength is combining a solid foundation in Math and Science with extensive experience from working in several high-tech industries, from conceptual development to hands-on implementation. I earned a Master's Degree and a Ph.D in Mechanical Engineering.

Trigonometry

The principles of Trigonometry help to analyze and understand geometrical relationships in real-life applications. Recognizing simple arrangements and dissecting them into triangles and circles is all it takes to reveal the basics of the "inner workings" of mechanisms and machinery.

Enthusiastic and very knowledgable teacher

Egbert gave me a very helpful introduction to physics with a basic experiment. He walked me through several methods of figuring out what the experiment meant in the real world. He is very enthusiastic about what he is teaching and I have already learned a lot. I would definitely recommend Egbert to everyone needing help with any level of physics.

Incredible Talent & Very Knowledgeable

I needed assistance on a real world application that involved statistical modeling and a deep dive cost analysis. Egbert far exceeded my expectations in grasping complex industry concepts quickly, and assisted me in problem solving a challenge that has plagued my industry for decades. I strongly recommend Egbert.
