About Robert

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 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.

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.

Algebra 2

My qualifications for this subject are using algebra in all its forms which is essential to doing design and analyses.

ASVAB

Beside being an Electronic engineer for 30 yrs I am also veteran and have all the skills to help anyone pass the ASVAB Test.

Electrical Engineering

I have been an electronic engineer for over 20 years. I have done analog and power supplies designs for Aerospace navy nuclear commercial, and military. I have also taught at night in several Technical schools where I taught basic electrical and electronic principles and the math required.

Geometry

My understanding of geometry concepts comes for working in industries which requires a better-than-basic understanding of geometrical spaces. Having to use geometry concepts is a great background for tutoring geometry.

Physics

Being an electronic engineer for 30 years and working indifferent disciplines requires a real understanding of physics, giving me a great background to tutor physics.

Prealgebra

My qualifications for this subject are using algebra for design and analysis of circuits, which was essential to the success of projects.

Precalculus

Being a retired electronic circuit engineer, trigonometry and algebra are an everyday tools that must stay sharp. I want to help students get a handle on theses subjects so they can reach calculus.

SAT Math

Being a retired electronic circuit design engineer, math is an everyday tool that must stay sharp. I want to help students get a handle on theses subjects.

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.

A Great tutor — Rob was extremely helpful with me the entire time. He had no problem showing me how do stuff multiple times if I didn't understand it. I feel like he really wanted to help and he wasn't there just for the money. I would highly recommend having him as a tutor. ...
