I tutor for PSAT and SAT, as well as SAT Math 1 and Math 2 subject tests.
My undergraduate degree (BSEE) in Electrical Engineering is from Rice University in Houston Texas. My focus was circuits, communication, and control systems, my minor was computer engineering. I've got all the bases covered with my Masters' degree (MSEE) from USC with a digital signal and digital image processing major and a special certificate for multimedia and creative technologies. I've worked in applying these in the semiconductor, aerospace, medical, energy, and robotics industries. I love putting science to work and spend lots of time helping others do the same: encouraging kids and young adults to study and succeed in the sciences.
