Bob's knowledge of math and science is extensive and impressive. He is quickly able to provide support and guidance in an extremely patient manner. A true delight!

HS Physics (Honors). Teaching Method, Patient, flexible hours, goes beyond expectations. Provide with great resources to study. Grab Physics concepts and apply to problems.

Bob has worked with my sixteen year old son at our house for the last four months. He has shown patience and dedication. He is always prompt, and has even stayed a little later without charging. We definitely recommend him!

Our first meeting was a great success. It is clear that Bob A. is a dedicated and caring tutor. His review and outline of our daughter's goals were spot on. He is patient and thoughtful. I appreciate the extra time he takes to provide more feed back and information during the week between sessions. I anticipate that our daughter's confidence and skill with pre-calculus will improve significantly under his guidance.

If my son needs help next year with physics or calculus, I am definitely going to contact him. He helped my son with trig.

Bob worked with my 9th grade daughter for a few sessions before her final exam in Physics. She had been struggling with several concepts that she could not grasp and Bob was able break down the topics so she easily understood the material. Bob not only knows Physics but more importantly, he knows how to effectively teach Physics. I highly recommend Bob as a tutor!

Bob is easy to work with and has made Physics enjoyable. He is an amazing tutor who helps you a lot and makes the subject understandable. He is very patient and flexible, and his tutoring updates are very detailed. I highly recommend Bob as a tutor!

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

A computer engineering major is always studied in a school of engineering and is the study and application of engineering to the design, development, and maintenance of computer hardware and software. Computer Engineering is how to design systems that include both computer hardware and software from an engineering aspect and is a different discipline from Computer Science. It is designing a computer with electrical and software engineers from a small cell phone to a large computing system for an international company and includes designing the hardware, firmware, operating systems, networks, and communications between computers. Computer Engineering also includes the core coursework of an engineering degree including higher mathematics, physics, science and engineering courses.

I have a degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Hartford (W. Hartford Conn.). During my studies I concentrated much of my course work in computers. I have taken graduate coursework in computer engineering at Northeastern University. I spent 20 years in the computer industry designing computer and networking hardware for Prime Computer, Digital Computer, and Bytex.(The 1st two were manufacturers of mini-computers and Bytex was a manufacturer of networking hardware.)

Discreet mathematics is the study of things that can only exist is defined states or at defined times. It is similar to the difference between integers (discreet) and all real numbers (continuous) with integers being only certain numbers and real numbers also including everything in between. Discreet maths are at the core of computer engineering where computers only have ones and zeros. Discreet maths are also basic in communication and communication. It is a basis for the new digital TV signals we have compared to the old analogue signals.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) and a Master of Arts (MAT) in Teaching. During my studies in Electrical Engineer and Physics I studied mathematics extensively from Algebra through Calculus, Engineering Calculus, Differential Equations, and many other advanced mathematics including Discreet Mathematics. I have studied Discreet Mathematics in my curriculum for my BSEE, in my graduate work, and especially in my studies of computer hardware design. I used discreet maths in my work for 20 years designing computer hardware.

Overview:

Electrical Engineering is the major subject I studied in college and one of my favorites to tutor. Electrical engineering is the study of physics, especially electricity and magnetism, and the mathematics to describe electrical systems and solve electrical problems. There are many branches of electrical engineering and I am at ease with the basics of all of them. My best branches are circuits, computers, designing with high speed signals, circuit boards, and digital logic design.

I also have a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT). As part of my education, in addition to the core engineering and electrical courses, I studied digital logic and Boolean algebra, computer organization and design, software engineering, programming, and numerical analysis For 20 years as an electrical engineer I used my knowledge of logic and Boolean algebra to design computer hardware.

Overview:

Geometry is another area of mathematics where the students are stretched in their abilities. The geometry that is taught is Euclidean geometry. It follows the writings of Euclid of ancient Greece; it defines one item and builds another by logic and proofs, eventually a whole system of geometry is defined. This challenges students to extend their abstract thinking skills and also challenges the students to think in formal logic for what is usually the first time in their lives.

During my studies in Electrical Engineer and Physics I have studied mathematics extensively from Algebra through Calculus, Engineering Calculus, Differential Equations, and many other advanced mathematics. Electrical Engineering is a study of physics, especially Electro-Magnetics, and the mathematics required to describe electrical systems and to solve EE problems. As a Physics and Science teacher I have taught Applied Mathematics principles including Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Statistics, and Calculus to students to solve their science problems.

The mechanics of geometry in calculating volumes and areas are not often an issue. The logical proofs and constructions of bisecting lines and other proofs are a stumbling block for many. Students need to be guided with multiple explanations to understand the new subject and in ways to think logically and step by step to build a geometry system. I have studied Euclid's geometry and other geometries in my engineering and physics and have multiple ways to show students how to solve their geometry problems.

Want to find the properties of an obelisk? How about the Washington Monument, the Bunker Hill Monument, or Cleopatra's Needle from the Luxor Temple which Egypt gave to France in 1833 and is now in Paris at the Place de la Concorde. We can find the volume, surface area, height, and weight.

Linear Algebra is a study techniques to solve multiple equations at simultaneously using matrices. Linear Algebra and matrices are a fundamental engineering technique for solving many problems. The matrices can represent trigonometry functions, algebra equations, vectors, differential equations, or financial, weather, or statistical models; just to name some.

I studied Linear Algebra in my curriculum for my BSEE, in my graduate work, and in my studies of computer hardware design. I used Linear Algebra in my work for over 30 years as an electrical engineer and physics teacher.

Overview:

Logic can be many things; many disciplines have a study of logic as it relates to their subject. Philosophy studies symbolic logic as a way to determine the validity of a formal argument and the truth of statements. Logic in philosophy uses predicate and propositional calculus. Mathematics and computer science studies logic in a mathematical way using Boolean algebra. Computers all operate using digital logic circuits.

As part of my education I studied digital logic and Boolean algebra in engineering. I also studied symbolic logic and predicate and propositional calculus in the philosophy department. For 20 years as an electrical engineer I used my knowledge of logic and Boolean algebra to design computer hardware.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) and a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT); and I was was a computer hardware designer for 20 years. I have studied and used formal logic systems extensively in my work designing computers. I used Boolean algebra and digital logic to design and analyze computer circuits.

There are other logic systems such as 1st order logic that are studied in mathematics and other disciplines. The details of different logic systems vary but the basic concepts are the same. Logic is one of my favorite subjects and my interest in it is what influenced my becoming a computer designer.
