About John


Bio

I'm John and am happy to help! I received my bachelor's in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University, with Highest Distinction, and master's from the University of California, Berkeley. I have been a Teaching Assistant for Intro to Circuits, Digital Design and Embedded Systems. I specialize in tutoring Electrical Engineering, specifically:

AC/DC Circuit Analysis, KCL/KVL, Thevenin/Norton Equivalents, Resistors/Inductors/Capacitors, Diodes and Transistors, Laplace Transforms, Frequency...

I'm John and am happy to help! I received my bachelor's in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University, with Highest Distinction, and master's from the University of California, Berkeley. I have been a Teaching Assistant for Intro to Circuits, Digital Design and Embedded Systems. I specialize in tutoring Electrical Engineering, specifically:

AC/DC Circuit Analysis, KCL/KVL, Thevenin/Norton Equivalents, Resistors/Inductors/Capacitors, Diodes and Transistors, Laplace Transforms, Frequency Domain Analysis, Electromagnetism (E&M), Boolean Algebra, K-Maps, Flip-Flops, Digital Design (finite state machines, counters, Boolean logic), Multisim, Logisim, Matlab, Python, C#

I am always expanding my subjects so always feel free to send material or seek help even if not listed! It works best for me to help students with specific problems (homework, practice exams, labs) they are struggling with. It is highly recommended for students to provide the material with 1-2 days advance notice. This way, I can work the problems out on my own, free of charge, and be most prepared and efficient for the lesson. I make every attempt to discuss the theory behind the problem in a systematic, step-by-step approach. Furthermore, I like to quiz students on how the approach or solution would change with minor changes to the problem to ensure a firm grasp of the underlying theory.

I am human. Although never intentional, I will make mistakes. I encourage all students to double check the approach and all calculations from each lesson. Please don't hesitate to message me questions if anything is unclear from the lesson or you think something is incorrect. If I do make a mistake, I ask for the opportunity to make it right before you leave any feedback. I pride myself on knowing each student walks away fully satisfied. I understand not all topics are easy and take time to develop, and sometimes require taking a step back to re-learn fundaments. I welcome one-on-one feedback to adjust my technique to maximize the impact for each student!

Great knowledge

John did so good with being able to help me with the particular problems I was struggling with and helping me analyze where I was making mistakes! He was a great tutor to work with and clearly knows his stuff. If you are needed help in EE, he can help!!

Kacy, 2 lessons with John

Patient and amazing

John is an amazing tutor. He is very patient and knowledgeable. Most importantly he is very understanding and accommodating. He always makes himself available after a session if you have questions. Definitely will recommend him and use him in the future!

Celia, 2 lessons with John

Great Teacher!

John was really knowledgeable ,helpful, and very thorough of the EE material we covered during our session. I appreciated his help and Will definitely seek him out if I’m having more trouble with EE topics !!

Excellent tutor

John is an excellent tutor and a great person to work with. He knew the subject well and explained the concepts for my assignment thoroughly. Hoping to continue working with him through this semester.

AMAZING AMAZING

Today was my first lesson with John F. And man I honestly wish he was my professor. He has such a clear understanding of the subject and teaches with such patience. That’s something I always look for when I’m being taught a new subject. Some people just have the gift to teach and explain and John you DEFINITELY have that gift. I truly hope to keep signing up for tutoring until the semester ends and I hope I pass with Johns help.

Kiabeth, 2 lessons with John

John is direct and exceedingly knowledgable; great for questions within projects/assignments.

What I really liked about John was that he would truly assess his understanding of the tasks within the assignment and the subsequent steps to take to execute them within MATLAB.

Jade, 3 lessons with John

Very Patient Tutor

You really can't go wrong with John F. He is extremely knowledgeable about his field and has seemingly infinite patience. He is very professional and more than happy to review steps and break material down as much as needed to help you understand. The next time you need help with this type of engineering please do yourself a favor and call John first!

Master knowledge in Circuit and pleasant tutor

Jack explained and showed my son to solve the first circuit home work that my son was very confused to understand. Jack is a very patient and pleasant tutor for my son. My son is very happy to have Jack as his circuit tutor and will continue seek Jack's help for 2021 Spring semester.

cleared up troubles with ring oscillator circuit

John helped me figure out how to make an efficient ring oscillator circuit as well as taught the math and theory behind what’s going with the 7404 chips, paired with the capacitors and resistors, to meet design requirements.
