About Robert

Hi, I go by Bob. I want to help you and maybe even cause you to like math. I have 3 grown kids who are professionals now, each using math every day. My daughter had a perfect score on the math section of the SAT. (I'm not that smart though!) I've been tutoring for a lot of years, especially the last 6 years in high school algerbra, trig, precalc, calc, and geometry. I really enjoy helping high school students to get comfortable with math and then to begin to really understand and to learn. I'm very hands-on in my style of teaching. We'll work together to understand not only how (turning the crank), but why (now I see why that works!). You may simply be trying to get through a class requirement, but math can still be fun. We'll have fun together and you WILL learn.

With a master's in electrical engineering and 25 years in growing and running a company that developed technologies that depend on the use of computational design and analysis, I've got a lot of practical math background and experience. I am a member of the National Honor Society and graduated college Summa Cum Laude, with honored membership in Tau Beta Pi and Etta Kappa Nu (two engineering, computer and mathematics honor societies) and was selected as 1 of 50 Air Force officers to go directly from undergraduate to graduate school for a master's degree. I mastered in electrical engineering (very math intensive). My master's thesis employed computational electromagnetics to model the nose section of a USAF F-16 aircraft to predict the resulting antenna pattern of an embedded radar warning receiver. This required geometry, linear algebra, differential equations, calculus and numerical methods. I was awarded Air Force Engineer of the Year in 1983, for my work as Lead Stealth Engineer for the USAF F-117 Stealth Fighter and B-2 Bomber. I left the Air Force and was invited to help start a new company by a former Director of DARPA, the advanced technology development arm of the Department of Defense. (They are the ones who brought you the internet and flat screen TV!) Our company was pushing the limits of computers to model and design stealth aircraft, radar systems, detection algorithms, and even early work in wireless communications encoding and encryption. I won the first contract for the company, developing computational design and analysis tools that became industry standards. I am qualified (with very high education grades and lots of experience) to help you with math up to and beyond differential equations.

You may call me to talk about your specific challenges and time availability. We'll figure out together if there's a match.

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.

Differential Equations

I have a master's degree in electrical engineering, which includes college and master's level classes in differential equations (diffy-q).

He was very understanding and patient with me when I didn't understand my work. He was also available last minute, which helped me a lot. Overall great experience!
