About Al


Bio

I am educated as an Electrical Engineer with an MSEE (WNEU), with some Grad courses in Applied Mathematics (WPI), and many self-study courses.

I've had a 25yr+ career in technology in the Boston MA area. My career included getting some of the hottest technology companies in the Boston area off the ground when they were just starting up. I also consulted for 13 years, seven of which were at MIT Lincoln Lab in their High Speed Electronics group.

I work hard to keep my Math skills...

I am educated as an Electrical Engineer with an MSEE (WNEU), with some Grad courses in Applied Mathematics (WPI), and many self-study courses.

I've had a 25yr+ career in technology in the Boston MA area. My career included getting some of the hottest technology companies in the Boston area off the ground when they were just starting up. I also consulted for 13 years, seven of which were at MIT Lincoln Lab in their High Speed Electronics group.

I work hard to keep my Math skills fresh, and spend a moderate amount of time in the Answers area here. I've tutored the subjects of Algebra I & II, Geometry, Calculus I & II, Physics I, Chemistry I & II (high school and College levels).

I almost always start by asking my students to go over their problem areas and explain to me their thought process to see where they are having trouble. I then work with the student to get them back on track. This may sound basic, but I believe when a student tells themselves "this is simple" it actually does become easier for them to understand Mathematics!

I've helped others prepare for and take the GRE. Usually, we'd go over the problem areas indicated by taking a practice exam. Keen at spotting quickest way to the solution which is essential when taking the GRE.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have mastery of Algebra was needed to obtain degree in Electrical Engineering. I have a strong interest in helping motivated students understand Algebra. Algebra is almost always a prerequisite for higher level mathematics. Although my tutoring experience goes back to my college days in the early to mid 1980's, I think I can really help any student who is struggling with Math or Science, so long as the student is motivated to learn.

Calculus

The mastery of Calculus was needed to obtain degree in Electrical Engineering. I have a strong interest in helping others understand Calculus. It is one of the most powerful mathematical tools a person can know.
Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry has always been a favorite of mine. I enjoy tutoring this subject because it helps build a strong foundation for more advanced Mathematics. For me, Geometry came very naturally, and kick-started my interest in Mathematics overall. (I was very weak in Algebra while taking Geometry, and only the year after did I realize I also needed to master Algebra if I wanted to pursue a technical field.)
