About Benjamin

Hi, I'm Ben. I have a Masters Degree (Electrical Engineering) as well as a Bachelors of Science, both from Caltech (California Institute of Technology), one of the most highly-ranked institutions of higher education in the world. I have 10+ years experience programming MATLAB, from writing scripts to developing large-scale scientific/engineering applications entirely in MATLAB. In particular, I'm an expert in programming GUIs in MATLAB, using MATLAB's GUIDE or otherwise. And I know how to optimize MATLAB code for speed, to take advantage of MATLAB's built-in matrix operations.

I love to share knowledge. I've taught mathematics (trigonometry and developmental math) at the community college level. In high school I tutored in math and science of all levels. And I have experience not only tutoring and teaching, but also training professional engineers in the use of the software I have developed. As far as standardized tests, I scored a perfect score on SAT, ACT, and GRE math, as well as SAT II math subject test.

I realize math, science, and programming don't come naturally to everyone. That's why I like to break down the material into pieces that can be digested by the student's mind, given what they are already familiar with, and make analogies with other subjects that may make sense and make the material 'click' for the individual student.

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.

MATLAB

I have more than ten years of experience programming in MATLAB. I was the chief developer of an application called UTAPWeLS which is widely used in the Petroleum Engineering/Petrophysics industry. Additionally, I'm familiar with signal processing algorithms in MATLAB.
