About Dwight


Bio

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.

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.

Patient and helpful

Mr. Dwight helped go over past tests from my communications systems class. He did the tests beforehand and explained the steps. He was patient and upfront on what he knew or didn't know.

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

Keirstyn, 1 lesson with Dwight

Very thoughtful and eager to help out

I appreciated Dwight's taking the time to brush up on the subjects I wanted to pursue. He really does have an excellent grasp of many areas and is quite happy to share what he knows.
