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!

Excellent engineering tutor - makes all the difference

My daughter is completing her semester of EECS 16b at Cal (Circuits, Signals, Robotics etc) and survived (hopefully thrived, we will see after finals) all thanks to John! He is a patient, highly responsive tutor who she said explained things she did not understand very well and also laid out the foundation for fundamentals needed. John is super accommodating with scheduling, quick to reply to questions and needs, and sends out lesson recordings and recaps for review. Why struggle with these high level concepts when one can actually understand and enjoy them? Thank you John!

Knowledgeable

Electrical circuits in computer science.Did excellent.Strength in subject.Good teaching skills.Timings are convenient.This session was extremely helpful.I will recommend him for other students.Honestly he is an awesome tutor.

Shameema, 6 lessons with John

Very knowledgeable and reliable

First reached out to John in December of this year to support me in an Electrical Engineering course. Within a week, the support and guidance John provided helped me understand and independently build a complicated circuit board and understand the subject on a much deeper level. John is very reliable and dedicated to his students. You will not regret booking him. He knows his stuff!

Amazing Teacher!

It’s the beginning of the semester and I am already struggling but on today’s session John was extremely helpful and I don’t feel as lost with this chapter.

Kiabeth, 13 lessons with John

amazing teacher, always so patient!

I will keep repeating myself but John is honestly an amazing tutor. I wasn’t sure if he was going to be able to help me with my plane trigonometry class that I am taking for the summer but like always he did not disappoint! He has such a clear understanding of the subject that when I have a question he answers in the most clear way and I am able to understand. I will keep coming to John for help until I graduate!

Kiabeth, 13 lessons with John

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!
