About Dwight

I am an experienced electrical engineer with an advanced degree in electrical engineering. In graduate school, I was a teaching assistant for two semesters (basic semiconductor circuits and electro-mechanical laboratory). During 2012-2013, I taught fundamental electrical circuit analysis to engineering students for two semesters at Penn State Harrisburg. I also have experience tutoring mathematics one-on-one to high-school students.

My goal is to improve and help solidify the student's understanding of the subject matter. With a better understanding, it is expected that the student will be motivated to approach problems with increased skill and eventually confidence.

A student's insight is important to solving mathematics and calculus problems. Sometimes this insight is based on physical intuition--but it does not need to be. I spend time to see that the student starts on the right path.

With much hands-on-experience in electrical engineering and physical systems, I can readily associate the equations describing physical systems with their physical behavior.

If one or more concepts in mathematics or physics escapes you, or you're having trouble figuring out how to set up problems to obtain their solution, I would enjoy the opportunity to help you work through that difficulty.

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.

Electrical Engineering

I earned my MSE in Electrical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania in 1990 and my PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania in 2001. I also taught DC & AC Circuit Analysis to undergraduates at Penn State Harrisburg during Fall 2012 and Spring 2013.

Great

My daughter was comfortable and able to focus with Dwight. She was able to look back at her notes and complete her assignment. Dwight was patient and able to help her over her fear of algebra and give her the confidence she needed
