Bio

Hello, reader! I am an electrical engineering graduate from Brown University who currently works in the defense industry as an electrical engineer.
As I worked through my course-work in school, I realized I was passionate about the material I was learning. I could feel my brain becoming more dense and rich with engineering knowledge that I could not wait to apply.

Hello, reader! I am an electrical engineering graduate from Brown University who currently works in the defense industry as an electrical engineer.
As I worked through my course-work in school, I realized I was passionate about the material I was learning. I could feel my brain becoming more dense and rich with engineering knowledge that I could not wait to apply.
Eager to share this passion, I worked as a teaching assistant during my junior and senior years for classes including electrical_circuits and signals_&_systems. By running lab sessions and office hours, I got to work with many different, sharp minds.
I look forward to helping you succeed in your course work and sharing personal examples of how I've been able to apply what you're learning!

Thank you for taking the time to read through this profile! Classes that I can help you with include: Electrical Circuits, Digital Logic, Computer Architecture, Signals & Systems, and Communication Systems.

Textbooks I am familiar with (and/or taught from) include:
Digital Design and Computer Architecture Arm Edition - Harris & Harris
Communication Systems - Madhow
Signals and Systems - Oppenheim & Willsky
Discrete-Time Signal Processing - Oppenheim & Schafer
Electric Circuits - Alexander & Sadiku

I expect students to provide copies of examples and notes that they wish to review beforehand. I will go over this material prior to our session in order to plan the most logical way to cover the material. Thank you!

Here are some quick facts about me:
* I have been working in the defense industry as an electrical engineer for the past 2.5 years. Here, I have implemented solutions in C#, written code for simulations in MATLAB, and designed digital systems for FPGAs in VHDL/Verilog.
* I worked as a teaching assistant for the school of engineering at Brown University. Here, I led lab sessions and office hours covering topics including electronic test equipment, DC/AC circuit analysis, and frequency domain analysis.

Subjects

Computer

Computer Engineering

Computer Engineering

As an engineer who specializes in DSP and hardware design, I work closely at the hardware/software interface. Specifically, I am fluent with the interaction between application software, processor architecture/micro-architecture, logic, and digital circuits. My computer engineering background draws from the material in 'Digital Design and Computer Architecture' by Harris and Harris.

Math

Electrical Engineering

Electrical Engineering

In my work as a systems engineer, I get to work around communication systems on a daily basis. My communication systems background consists of both digital signal processing (DSP) and hardware design. As an undergraduate teaching assistant, I have taught elementary DSP from 'Signals & Systems' by Oppenheim and Willsky. I have also taught elementary digital/analog hardware design from 'Electric Circuits' by Alexander and Sadiku.

Excellent Teacher!

Beyond his great intuition for circuit analysis, Richard is an an excellent teacher who will explain in thorough detail the minor and the major details of each problem and topics discussed, while answering any and all general or specific questions asked. If you have any specific circuit theory and analysis or matlab questions, he is the best.

Michael, 6 lessons with Richard

Very knowledgeable

Richard is the perfect tutor. He is a great teacher that goes the right pace. We have used him repeatedly. He makes sure that you understand the assignment and is always there later if you need to ask further questions. A++++

Best tutor!!

Richard is amazing!! I cannot say enough good things about Richard! He is well prepared, very knowledgeable, caring and very patient. My son is very young but Richard knows how to make the class interesting and knows how to encourage young student. My son really loves Richard and can’t wait for his next class! Best tutor ever!! Highly recommend!!

Jing, 5 lessons with Richard

He is the best

Richard is a very amazing tutor he’s able to explain difficult concepts in a way that even a 5 year old with no prior knowledge could understand. He goes out of his way to make sure you have a very high understanding of what is going on in problems and topics. By far the best tutor I’ve ever had for any programming/engineering class. I highly recommend him to anyone!

Jonah, 19 lessons with Richard

Highly recommended tutor in Electrical Circuit Analysis

Richard is a top-notch tutor. Aside from being very knowledgeable of the subject matter, he is very patient and helpful. He is my tutor every Friday until the semester ends and hopefully, in the coming semesters.

Ronald, 11 lessons with Richard

Really knows how to make things easy to understand!

I came into our lesson with zero knowledge about Assembly language, and after I was ready to give up on my assignment after one week of no progress, one session with Richard helped me understand more than 4 weeks worth of lectures! We not only completed my project together, but he made sure I understood every step, while even teaching me things that I have yet to learn in my class with a complete understanding! If you are looking for a patient, easy to understand, and well-prepared tutor, Richard is your guy!

Logic Design Tutoring

Was clear and concise about everything that was discussed. Always made sure that the material was understood before moving forward. Allowed me to figure problems out on my own to have a better understanding.

Dante, 9 lessons with Richard

Excellent and highly knowledgeable tutor . helped me in quickly picking up the concepts and solve problems more diligently . Highly recommended

Highly knowledgeable and humble . Excellent tutoring , helped me in quickly picking up the conceptual problems Highly highly recommended .
