About Robert


Bio

Being an electronic circuit design engineer for over 30 years has made me aware that there is a need to bring to the student a love of physics and the math. This understanding of these subjects is essential to understand the rapid changes in technology and for everyday life.

The reason that I am pursuing tutoring is to encourage students out who want to understand the physical sciences and math. Math is the language of physics and engineering The understanding of the math is essential...

The reason that I am pursuing tutoring is to encourage students out who want to understand the physical sciences and math. Math is the language of physics and engineering The understanding of the math is essential to get an understanding of the system and to determine the outcome.

I graduated from Monmouth College in 1976 with a BSEE
I also have taken graduate level courses in (Communication Theory, Advanced Math and Statistics).
I served in Vietnam 1970 -1971 and hold one US Patent.

I have also taught at Devry Technical School and ITT technical Schools in NJ. The subjects taught were Passive Circuit Analysis, Basic Math, Algebra, Complex Numbers, Analog Electronics, Digital Electronics, Binary number theory and base n, Basic electrical theory (Ohms law, Kirchhoff's Laws, circuit theorem's), Electronic device theory (bipolar transistors, field effect transistor and diodes).

The Industries I have worked in are, Navel Nuclear Instrumentation Design, Aero Space, Power Conversion, Analog Electronics, Digital Electronics and Instrumentation.

As a senior member of the technical staff part of my job was mentoring new engineers with different backgrounds. This training required me to teach the analysis and design practices. I accomplished this by breaking things down to the lowest level and work up from there.

I am flexible in my hours since I am retired and look forward to meeting with the student.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry

I taught several different subjects for Electronics technicians DeVry and Rets technical schools at night. Besides circuit theory and electronics most of the subjects also needed different subjects in Math. Trigonometry is used in AC circuit analysis so it is not a subject which I had to pass the test for but I had to use it.

He is clear, patient and does everything he can to help.

Robert taught me to look closer, think clearer and be patient with myself. And some electronics too. I look forward to woking with him again soon... Thanks Buddy.

He is very Knowledgeable and experienced

Robert has been showing me Op Amp circuits. He explained how they worked. He knows what he is talking about, and I will keep getting his help. I would recommend this tutor.

Simon, 11 lessons with Robert

Knowledgeable and patinate about teaching / tutoring

Robert help me understand the relevance of the circuit configuration that I was struggling with and how to go about doing the needed calculations. I appreciate his knowledge in electrical circuits design and his natural desire to help. Great guy!

Louis, 1 lesson with Robert

Useful lesson and a very interesting conversation

Im a recent electrical engineering graduate with a very specific question about LC oscillators that Ive not been able to answer for myself. Robert was able to help me figure out where my gaps in understanding the material were and we had a very interesting conversation about the history of electronics afterward. I'm going forward a lot more confident in my ability to figure out the answer to this question with a specific list of what I need to brush up on.

Patient and Thorough! -Physics

Robert was great to work with! He explained everything clearly and thoroughly, and even showed me practical applications for the topics discussed in class. It was a perfect fit because Rob was an electrical engineer and I needed help with electricity and magnetism!!

Narmon, 1 lesson with Robert

Excellent Tutor for Electrical Engineering Students

Robert has been a huge help to me! There were some topics that I struggled with in my linear circuits course for various reasons, but especially because there were gaps in my education and I had forgotten some fundamentals. Robert has done a great job of both filling those gaps in my knowledge and offering complete clarity over the material we’ve covered. He has been a Godsend! I recommend Robert for any subject he’s available to help with. Great communication in and out of lessons, and he genuinely seems to love helping others. Can’t recommend enough, 10/10 on all fronts!

Excellent instructor

Robert gave me excellent instruction in fundamental DC circuit theory. The web interface was a bit cumbersome to use but once we connected he was able to help me a great deal. I will continue to get tutoring from him.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

I am an engineering major that was struggling with a course due to it being online because of Corona virus. I reached out to Robert and he got back to me with in hours of reaching out to him. The next day we met and he helped me, With problems I was facing in the course. I have a better understanding of the course than I ever would have on my own. He is a really caring tutor. You could tell that he does it because he loves Teaching.
