About Ghulam

I have taught for the Electronic engineering graduate program at ITT technical Institute as a senior instructor and earned continuous student Satisfaction and Retention awards. I have delivered instructions in class and laboratory utilizing audio, video and written techniques to resolve student difficulties. I have taught technical math, college algebra, statistics, physics and miscellaneous engineering subjects most favorite Electronic circuits analysis as part of the program. In tutoring, I go beyond the appointed time to ensure that the student's learning task is complete. It is also noteworthy that those students whom I tutored have improved their grades.

I take pride in teaching theory with the presentation of the practical applications because this method increases student motivation and the subject comprehension. This I can accomplish very successfully because I have twenty plus years of engineering experience in Aerospace industry (Boeing, NASA) and Electronic instrumentation industry in design, development and reliability analyses. I have conducted technical analyses of the NASA equipment as a senior reliability engineer utilizing statistics, probability, algebra and calculus. During this time I have been also a Chair and member of the study group for SRE (Society of Reliability Engineers) Houston chapter. As a chair my functions included educating and guiding engineers interested in a ‘Certified Reliability Engineer’ exam. In regards to my education, I have a Master degree in Electronic engineering and a Bachelor degree in Applied Physics.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Math

I love to prepare high school students for the ACT college admission exam more effectively and successfully because I have engineering know how knowledge and 11 years' teaching experience. As an engineer I have performed design and analytical functions on aerospace and electronic systems and as a teacher I have taught technical math, algebra, geometry, precalculus, physics, statistics,and engineering subjects with students full satisfaction and awarded retention.

Algebra 1

Over 12 years I have been teaching and tutoring high school students in Algebra, which includes developing and graphing equations, solving polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, polar functions and complex algebra.

I have a habit of teaching patiently so that a student can follow all steps with convenience. I do not rush and give student sufficient time to comprehend, even if I have to go above the assigned time, which I will do for free.

Algebra 2

Over 12 years I have been teaching and tutoring high school students in Algebra which includes developing and graphing equations, solving polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, polar functions and complex algebra.

I have a habit of teaching patiently so that a student can follow all steps with convenience. I do not rush and give student sufficient time to comprehend, even if I have to go above the assigned time, which I will do for free.

Differential Equations

Solving differential equations is part of the electronic circuits RC, RL AND RLC circuits transient analyses which I have employed regularly while teaching Electronic engineering program at ITT Technical institute.

In teaching process controls, I have also applied concept of the differential equations over 11 years such as PID ( Proportional, Integral & Derivative)controls.

With this engineering background, I will be very helpful to a student in developing and solving differential equations.

Electrical Engineering

I have 30 plus years of expertise in electrical engineering design and analysis and am qualified with Master degree. I also have taught electronic engineering and communication program at ITT Technical Institute Earth City MO approximately twelve years with full satisfaction of the students body and their retention.I had to quit because I was not willing to accept adjunct position from a full time.This was lucky because I had an opportunity to work with NASA as a Senior Reliability and Maintainability engineer.

Before teaching I worked with Boeing on their Missile program as Principal Specialist Reliability engineer. Please let me know if you have more questions.

Elementary Math

Elementary math is basic that I have been practicing or applying in day to day applications. I am proficient and also knowledgeable of the teaching techniques required in mentoring students in specially elementary math.
A student naturally feels comfort and motivated in following elementary math when presented with examples associated with daily life. This method has become my natural habit that has developed from my extensive teaching and engineering background.

Geometry

Geometry has been my favorite subject since high school. This branch of mathematics deals with figures such as circle, triangle, polygon etc. The derivation of the circle, straight line and Pythagorean theorem, laws of the sines and cosines are very interesting when looked at logically. Their applications in physics and electronic phase-angle study are numerous. In physics, we apply them in analyzing the acceleration of the object when sliding on the inclined surfaces bearing friction. As this is my favorite subject, a student will love learning geometry from me.

Physics

I own a bachelor's degree in Applied Physics and have been teaching engineering students Physics 2 for 11 years. I also have conducted experiments in the lab for demonstration. This puts me in a position that is very favorable in tutoring.
It allows me to cite applications where it applies when teaching physics, such as Centripetal force and the revolving satellites. Or Newton's 1st law and the inertia involved during the time vehicle brakes are applied and our body deflects forward. This method puts student at ease to learn physics.

Prealgebra

I have taught engineering students college Algebra around 11 years as a Senior Instructor with ITT Technical Institute Earth City, MO. This included prealgebra items such as natural numbers, irrational numbers, integers, factorization, roots and powers, 4 quadrants Cartesian coordinate system, independent variables and their determination from algebraic equations.
This background allows me to teach you prealgebra more effectively and conveniently.

Precalculus

I have been preparing high school students in precalculus for ten years while teaching Electronic Engineering Technology curriculum at the ITT Technical Institute in Earth City, Missouri. I am familiar with the students' difficulties and know how to resolve them successfully utilizing my engineering background. Students are trained in developing equations and solutions, plotting and analyzing graphs, exponential and logarithmic functions and applications, polar coordinates, vectors and trigonometric functions with applications. In short, I am an experienced teacher that helps students learn precalculus more efficiently.

Probability

One of my engineering functions as a reliability and maintainability engineer was to predict reliability of an aerospace system and predict parts supply for repair. This requires full knowledge in probability mathematics and its application. I performed these functions about 14 years while working with Boeing and NASA on their hardware.
This makes me beneficial in teaching students all aspects of probability with practical examples.

SAT Math

Having been exposed and involved in more than 25 years in a variety of the mathematical and engineering applications encountered during teaching and working as electronic engineer, I have provided many students with exemplary instructions in their college education that earned me their complete satisfaction.

SAT involves questions from multiple subjects, which requires that a teacher must have a compatible background and can provide accurate solutions, accompanied with practical examples to variety of problems in SAT exam.

SAT Writing

Writing has been my major function in both engineering and teaching professions for nearly 30 years.

Constant practice of writing technical reports and lesson plans has equipped me with know how to structure a sentence correctly with appropriate words and grammatically accurate.

I therefore feel confident in preparing student successfully for a writing part of the SAT exam.

SSAT

Having been exposed and involved in more than 25 years in a variety of the engineering and teaching functions ranging from mathematical analysis, reading documentation and writing analytical reports I am equipped with the knowledege that a tutor must have in preparing student in SSAT with superior performance.
SSAT involves questions from multiple subjects which necessitate that a teacher must have a compatible background who can provide accurate solutions, accompanied with practical examples in order to prepare the student most effectively for an SSAT exam.

Statistics

Having been exposed to teaching College Statistics to engineering students at ITT technical Institute for eleven years and been personally involved in its practical applications in aerospace industry more than 15 years to forecasting probability of success of an aerospace hardware as a Senior Reliability Engineer, I can provide effective tutoring instructions to those whose goal is to excel in Statistics not only in school but also in the work environment.

Trigonometry

I have utilized Trigonometry in teaching vectors, projectile motion and motion of the objects on inclined surfaces etc., in Physics quite extensively.
This background will certainly help students learning Trigonometry very effectively.
