About Youngkwon

I love teaching and sharing my knowledge with students who are really looking for some help and a way forward for their wonderful future and career. Thanks to the demanding necessity from my career so far, I am quite familiar with and proficient in many branches of math and electrical engineering. The key subjects I would love to tutor in include, but not limited to, algebra I/II, pre-calculus, calculus, computer programming using C or C++, and subjects related with electrical engineering, with a special focus on wireless telecommunications, where all subjects can be covered up to the college level.

As for tutoring in each subject, I usually start with the very fundamental concepts/principles, depending on the proficiency level of a student. Once a student gets confident with concepts/principles, then we will practice with as many problems as possible, from some entry level to somewhat challenging ones, so that a student can really get confident with concepts/principles and develop his/her problem-solving skills. A quiz or test can be taken from time to time, along with some homework.

Knowledgeable and patient, and will be more than happy to help if you decide to work with me.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

C

After learning C as part of coursework at university, it has been one of those tools I had to get familiar with for both academic and professional career. The usage includes 1) Monte Carlo simulation of a telecommunication receiver, and 2) system-level simulation of mobile communication systems. Currently, I am teaching C at a local, post-secondary educational organization.

C++

I have been using C++ for the purpose of analysis in engineering fields most of the time, where the usage includes system-level simulation of cellular communications system. Currently, I am teaching C++ at a local, post-secondary educational institute.

Computer Programming

After learning FORTRAN, Pascal, and C as part of coursework at university, I have been using those languages for R&D purposes. More than 20 year experience in programming covers 1) Monte Carlo simulation of a wireless telecommunication receiver, 2) system-level simulation of mobile communication systems, and 3) protocol stack development for a cell phone. Currently, I am teaching programming at a local, post-secondary educational organization.

Electrical Engineering

I have received a Ph.D. degree from the Department of Electrical Engineering, Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea, where the academic credential is the equivalent of the U.S. ones earned at a regionally accredited institution of higher education.

While pursuing the above-mentioned degree, I specialized the theory of digital communications and its application to mobile communications, with a focus on a CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) system. Since then, I have led and/or participated in a lot of industrial R&D efforts on the advanced telecommunications systems, including 4G LTE, and part of R&D results have been published through many IEEE Journals and conferences. I am currently holding more than 40 US patents granted.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Youngkwon helped me with my intro to circuits course at NCSU. He was very patient and made sure I understood each step and the reasoning behind all my work and the examples. He really helped me for my test.
