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 (Software Engineering) in the Boston MA area. My career included helping a few of the hottest technology companies (Cascade Communications, Sycamore Networks, Acopia Networks) with their early engineering needs. I also consulted for 13 years, the last seven at MIT Lincoln Lab in the High Speed Electronics...

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 (Software Engineering) in the Boston MA area. My career included helping a few of the hottest technology companies (Cascade Communications, Sycamore Networks, Acopia Networks) with their early engineering needs. I also consulted for 13 years, the last seven at MIT Lincoln Lab in the High Speed Electronics group.

I work to keep my Math skills fresh, and spend a moderate amount of time in the Answers area here. I've tutored students in 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.

GRE

GRE

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.

Homeschool

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,

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.)
Precalculus

Precalculus

Precalculus (Trigonometry and Mathematical Analysis) are two of my favorite mathematical subjects. I help students with Trigonometry and other Precalculus problems here (Answers area) and on other websites. Some students will need a specific precalculus class to prepare themselves for Calculus I and beyond.
