Hello! I am Alden G. and am currently an undergraduate electrical engineering major and robotics minor at UMass Lowell. I have a passion for everything robotic and electronic which was inspired by the shows, games and movies I was exposed to in my childhood. My life has revolved around the pursuit of studies in mathematics and different subjects of science like physics to better understand the key concepts in the fields of robotics and electronics.

I graduated with my high school diploma in 2018 as an Honors graduate at the top 10% of my graduating class. I completed many courses in advanced studies in math and science, those of which including courses like AP Calculus AB, AP Physics Mechanics C, and AP Computer Science as an AP scholar. The related college-level math classes I have taken and completed at a proficient level include Calculus II and III, differential equations, and complex analysis. My science-related studies include introductory physics (kinematics and electromagnetism), statics and dynamics. My degree/minor-specific courses I have taken include circuit theory courses at the DC and AC level as well electronics courses (amplifiers, diodes, BJTs, etc) , an introductory logic design course, and an introductory signals and systems course.

My tutoring experience has spanned over three years, helping friends who have taken similar courses understand difficult content and helping other students in a laboratory setting with relating applied mathematics to constructing circuits. I am a patient and observant type of tutor who will ensure a student's full needs are met to master subjects that they may at first struggle in. My skills include taking complicated concepts and interpreting them using simplified strategies, terminology, and memorization.

I am always available to contact and will respond to your requests promptly. I hope to work with you soon!

I have worked with a variety of projects and courses that involve the use of C and C++, including the Applications Programming course that is part of the EE degree pathway at UMass Lowell which involved work with a variety of graphics, logic and math-based programming assignments.
C++,

C++

My experience with C++ started in middle school for applications including general computer programs, microcontrollers and robotics. I took a course in C++ for computer software applications and robotics in my sophomore year of high school as well. The focuses of both courses were to build an understanding of C++ for use in mathematical and electronic applications for things like programming Vex Robots, designing computational programs, and designing games in C++. In my junior year of high school, I wrote and self-published an introductory book on C++ known as The Book of Bytes for Neophytes: A Guide to C++ which was designed to help beginners have a solid understanding of the basic fundamentals of a high-level language like C++.
MATLAB,

MATLAB

My undergrad courses as an EE major at uni has involved the use of MATLAB to create plots, make programs to do calculations and simulate differential equations using functions. I have also done an introductory level of signals and systems code for MATLAB in looking at frequency and impulse response. My main use of MATLAB is for aiding in plots and calculations of data for circuit labs.
Microsoft Windows,

Microsoft Windows

I have worked with Windows since I was a kid but have gained experience with using it for work applications as early as elementary school. My experience with Windows spans across using task manager, SSH, disk cleanup, anti-virus setup, networking setup, hardware setup, various Windows-native applications, and installing/removing services and programs.

Algebra 1

In my freshman year of high school, I took a standard Algebra I course. The focus was put on analysis of first and second order linear equations, how to solve for variables, and working with simplification of fraction-based equations in particular. Learning how to solve basic systems of equations was also taught near the end of the course. I passed the course with an A.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

In my junior year of high school, I took an honors equivalent course of algebra II at my high school. Much of the course involved work with analysis of different ordered equations numerically and graphically. Work with some linear algebra like systems of equations and matrices were also put focus on. Precursors to calculus such as learning how to work with derivatives occurred near the end of the course. I passed the course with a B.
Calculus,

Calculus

In my senior year of high school, I completed the AP Calculus AB course ran by the Collegeboard and received a score of a 4 on the AP exam that year. In my first semester of my sophomore year at UML, I completed the MATH.1320 Calculus II course, and in my second semester I completed the MATH.2310 Calculus III course. The calculus II course involved work with single and double integrals, analysis of sequences and series, as well as being able to interpret areas and volumes of bounded curves in the polar and Cartesian planes. The calculus III course involved three-dimensional analysis of planes, curves, vector fields and geometric shapes with the use of double integrals, triple integrals, and various theorems such as Green's Theorem. I passed both the MATH.1320 and MATH.2310 courses with an A.

Differential Equations

In the first semester of my sophomore year at UML, I took and completed the engineering equivalent of the differential equations course that is required for the degree pathways of students enrolled in the Francis College of Engineering. The course combined the understanding of how to solve different orders and types of differential equations with respect to application problems in different fields of science including biology, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and general physics. MATLAB was also taught and used as part of a laboratory portion of the course to visually and numerically interpret differential equations and their solutions if they had initial values. I received a final average of an A once I completed the course.

Great tutor

Patient and knowledgeable. Based on his experience with Altium Designer, Alden went above and beyond to help me get up and running with Altium CircuitMaker.

Curtis, 1 lesson with Alden

Patient and highly knowledgeable!

Alden has been extremely useful in helping me with my Physics. He is patient, a great communicator in explaining the topics. He makes me comfortable with the content we study together. I'm always impressed with his knowledge of the topics. I would recommend Alden without any hesitation.

Elizabeth, 121 lessons with Alden

Highly recommended

Very pleased with Alden, he is doing a great job. Very knowledgeable and communication skills are great and he has a strong understanding of the material. Highly recommend using his services.

Jim, 29 lessons with Alden

Excellent tutor of C++

Alden is competent to explain the steps in programming, why and how. He is patient and through. A pleasure to work with, gives tips on how to define and clarify assignments for efficient problem solution approaches.

Debbie, 1 lesson with Alden

Creative problem solving and clear explanations

Alden was very patient in listening to my statistical problem and helped me come up with a model in a very create way. I was able to understand why my approach was likely not the best route in solving the problem and was provided another solution which more easily fit my goal. I learned a lot about statistical modeling along the way too! I definitely look forward to working with Alden again.
