great professor

Fast quick response make thing a lot easier. I really happy with my logic design lecture, I would highly recommend

Abdulwahab, 1 lesson with Prof Skip

Learned good knowledge and discussed reasoning

Prof Skip took the time to explain everything to me. He would go faster or slower as needed. It was fun working on problems with him, because he would talk with me and work through it with me, so I didn't just sit there listening. He also related what I learned in other problems if the same reasoning came up again. If I didn't understand something, I could ask him and he would patiently discuss it. I learned a lot of formulas during our tutoring sessions that I do not think that my class went through in enough depth. I liked that Prof Skip prepared ahead of time for our meeting, so our meeting could go smoothly. The first time we met, he also suggested some videos for me to watch to further aid me.

Knowledgeable Tutor

Prof. Skip provided me with a crash course in Project Management. He was very knowledgeable, efficient and answered all my inquiries even when I could not explain exactly what I needed to know. He was extremely patient and provided me with reading materials that were self-explanatory to be able to use on my own. I am happy that it was him who answered my inquiry and became my tutor.

Huda, 1 lesson with Prof Skip

Knowledgeable and patient

Prof Skip is very knowledgeable and instructs in a way that is easy to follow and remember. He has taught me how to easily understand K-maps and how to correctly get the answer every time. Prof Skip has also taught me how to understand boolean algebra and binary to hexadecimal conversion. So far, I've had two amazing tutoring sessions that got rid of any doubts that I had with the material I was struggling with. I look forward to working with Prof Skip in future sessions. I would highly recommend him for any students that need help in his areas of expertise.

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, 17 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!
