About Ken

I am eager to begin helping you learn calculus, probability, statistics, Excel and electrical engineering. I have used these subjects in my job almost every day for over 40 years, and feel very comfortable with them. I am an electrical engineer, and I solve real world engineering and science problems in my job designing electronic equipment.

I frequently have to learn new mathematical and scientific concepts for my work. Whenever a new problem comes along, I like to research it and learn all I can about how to solve it. I try to get a practical and intuitive understanding, so that I not only know how to do the math, but also understand what any equations mean and why they work. I often get to teach co-workers what I have learned, and I love doing that. I hope I can pass along my enthusiasm to you.

In addition to calculus, I use programs like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and MATLAB on an everyday basis, and I can help you learn how to use them. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, and a Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering from The University of Virginia.

I look forward to working with you!

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 have 40 years of experience working in the Electrical Engineering field for major electronics industry corporations: IBM, Loral Federal Systems, Lockheed Martin, and BAE Systems. My major focus has always been on precision analog circuit design, Phase-Locked Loops, and analog IC design; I have a moderate amount of experience in RF design and GHz signal integrity. I have had frequent opportunities bringing new employees up to speed, teaching them how to do circuit design in these areas. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Carnegie-Mellon University (1974), a Master of EE from The University of Virginia (1981), and a five-course Certificate in VLSI Design from George Mason University (2005).
