Master knowledge in Circuit and pleasant tutor

Professor Skip taught my son the basic stuff of Circuit and explained to my son how to solved the homework problems and the lab work. My son is very happy to have Professor as his circuit tutor and will continue for more lessons. Professor Skip is excellent as a tutor and very knowledgeable about the Electrical Engineering. He is also very patient to my son. I highly recommend Professor Skip to anyone who needs help on Electrical Engineering. Thank Professor Skip.

Trung, 2 lessons with Prof Skip

Excellent Communicator

I had worked my professor and my university tutors resulting on only frustration that they were not clearly communicating what needed to be done to solve my circuit analysis problem. Prof Skip in a very short amount of time cut through all the unnecessary and complicated theory behind the problem and straight to how to practically apply that theory to solve the problem

Joel, 1 lesson with Prof Skip

Very knowledgeable

I’ve had multiple sessions for him for more than one subject and he’s very knowledgeable, patient, and easily explains any topic of concern. Because of him, I was able to catch up on assignments that previously held me back and gained proficiency in those topics. I definitely recommend!

Christian, 3 lessons with Prof Skip

Really helped me out!

had a tough time with the transition to online classes. prof skip really helped me excel and do well in my class! If it wasn't for him I would definitely be struggling.

Mark, 6 lessons with Prof Skip

Best Tutor

Professor Skip and I went over a circuit design project and he not only helped me accomplish my original vision but walked me through another circuit concept altogether. Greatly knowledgeable, personable, and patient; Professor Skip’s session helped me more than any video tutorials or online reading material ever could!

Salvatore, 3 lessons with Prof Skip

Definitely Recommend

Prof. Skip went over diodes, transistors, and op-amps in our lesson. He is really knowledgeable and really patient while working through problems. If I didn't understand something he would go back and explain the theory. If you are struggling with circuit analysis I recommend using Prof. Skip as a tutor! You won't be disappointed!

Tom, 1 lesson with Prof Skip

Extremely knowledgeable and patient

This was the 2nd lesson with Prof Skip. Topics covered today: Boolean logic, boolean math, logic circuit. He knows the subject-matter very very well and teaches it patiently.

Fariha, 19 lessons with Prof Skip

Extremely helpful

I was not understanding the material in my circuits analysis class and a quiz was only three days away. I reached out to Professor Skip and he helped me understand the material to get me ready for my quiz and I ended up getting an A. He is extremely patient and does a great job explaining things in terms the student can understand and is very flexible with setting up a time to meet.

Michael, 7 lessons with Prof Skip

Knowledgeable Tutor

Prof Skip is one of the best tutors I have found on the platform. He is patient, kind, and very knowledgeable. He helped me understand concepts that troubled me. I would definitely recommend him!

Sham, 2 lessons with Prof Skip

Trust me, he would be able to teach you.

I had my first lesson with him yesterday. I am learning circuitry and computer design in my graduate classes and it isn't easy stuff. While I did understand the basics beforehand, he had examples to really go through and explain it in more detail. One part that I was having some problems with specifically was how to actually draw out the circuits. He showed me one simple trick that made everything easy. Again, he has taught for years and because of that, he has handouts, videos, countless examples, and he can go as advanced or simplified as you need it to be. I will be definitely using him again.
