Bio

My name is Son Tran, who is a Vietnamese. I grew up in Vietnam with a high education that my parents wanted to see the success of their children. I finished my high school in 1981 and kept going to "enter" HochiMinh City University of Science in Saigon, Vietnam. After 4 years, I had my BS. degree in Nuclear Energy in 1985 with 3.98 / 4 GPA. Because I graduated with high GPA, my university promoted me as Math. Professor (1985 - 1989) in HoChiMinh City University of Science for teaching Linear...

My name is Son Tran, who is a Vietnamese. I grew up in Vietnam with a high education that my parents wanted to see the success of their children. I finished my high school in 1981 and kept going to "enter" HochiMinh City University of Science in Saigon, Vietnam. After 4 years, I had my BS. degree in Nuclear Energy in 1985 with 3.98 / 4 GPA. Because I graduated with high GPA, my university promoted me as Math. Professor (1985 - 1989) in HoChiMinh City University of Science for teaching Linear Algebra, High Level Math. and Differential Equation.

I came to United States in 1989 and finished my second BS degree in Electrical Engineering in 1996 with 3.65 / 4 GPA from University of Houston - Downtown. A year after that, I was hired by Baker Hughes Inc. (BHI) as Electrical Engineer (1997 - 2011) who designed AC and DC electronic circuits boards and trained Technical and Technology courses for technicians and assemblers

I was laid off in 2011 by BHI. In this "rest" time (2 years), I decided to go back to school and registered for a Master degree from University of Wisconsin - Platteville. In 2012, i graduated and received a MS degree in Automation Control Engineering with 3.85 / 4 GPA. Fortunately, I was hired by Cameron International Inc. as Sr. Electrical Engineer (2013 - 2017) who had to designed Subsea Electrical Control Systems for BOP (Blow-Out Prevent) system and trained Surface and Subsea Control Systems for Manufacturing Engineers.

The Oil and Gas Industry of the world went down and I was laid off again. Finally, I decided to change my career field. Lone Star College Systems hired me as a Math. and Electrical Engineering Technology Professor who is teaching Calculus I, II, and III, College Algebra, and Basic Electrical Theory.

With 22+ years of experience in Electrical Engineering and with 9 big projects (value = $500 million / project), I always asked myself how I could handle them and got done my position in my previous companies? The answer is MATHEMATICS, which is the excellent foundation for anyone wants to "build" a good future. Usually, I encourage my students who want to learn Engineering should prepare for yourself a good Math. foundation. I believe I can be an excellent Math. teacher, instructor, or professor to "walk" together with you if you contact me for learning more and making schedule lessons.

Solid tutor

My son got a lot out of his tutoring session. he is studying for a college algebra test and this brought him a lot closer than he was before. we will keep coming back for sessions as long as my son needs them and even when I think he doesn't. math is too important to just wing it.

7th grade math struggle

Mr. T. worked great with my daughter. She struggles with math. She had math homework she needed help with. Mr. T. made himself available which I truly appreciate. She was able to understand him clearly. My daughter stated his teaching method was good. He explained it, did it with her and made her work the problem and made sure she understood not only by asking but having her show him. I will be using his services again to create a plan and get her math grade up. Will keep posted.
