College doesn't make you smart. College teaches you to be resourceful.

I'm a graduate of Cal Poly State University, where I acquired my Bachelor's Degree in Electronic Engineering while concentrating in Computers. In addition to my curriculum in Electronics, my coursework included Chemistry, General to Advanced Physics, and Mathematics from Algebra to Calculus to Fourier Analysis. My career has its foundation in semiconductor electronics, computer CPUs and Networking. Coupled with my personal skills and creativeness that allowed me to become an effective Tech... [more]


Algebra 1


Algebra 2

I completed math coursework required for Engineering. Which includes the Calculus series. Calculus is simply a lot of Algebra.


Biology


Calculus


Chemistry

I completed Chemistry requirements for the Engineering program at Cal Poly. I understand the nomenclature and the systematic processes as well as the mathematical analysis applicable to Chemistry.


Microsoft Excel


General Computer


Microsoft Word


Physics


Microsoft PowerPoint


Prealgebra


Precalculus

I completed Math requirements necessary for Engineering which includes Precalculus.


Trigonometry


Writing

Elementary Math


Study Skills

My study methods employ skills in reading subject material in a systematic approach to reinforce notes from lectures and key terms requiring attention or memorization. Additional methods include using flash cards where some students may be more "right" brain in that visuals are more effective. For the most part, it's about "outlining" subject material and reinforcing key terms or equations through flash cards and memorization.


Networking (Computer)

I graduated from Cal Poly with a BS Degree in Electronic Engineering - with an emphasis in computers and networking. During my last 2-3 yrs at Cal Poly I was also the lead Computer Support person for the Business Staff of Associated Student's Incorporated. Upon Graduation, I was a Systems Development Engineer for one of the leading semiconductor firms in the world and there I validated silicon to system solutions of Ethernet Media Access Controllers. Throughout those 9 years, and since then, I've been building, operating and administrating local area networks. Today, I'm the lead Technical Adviser in IT for a small startup and am positioned to carry through to a Systems Engineering position in preparation of managing the office and operations of a networking service provider in San Francisco. Currently, I'm pursuing my Cisco Certification as Network Administrator - something I should've done decades ago. The material is clearly review and learning how to apply what I already know or am familiar with. Networking is my life...it started my career and I'm ending with it.


Differential Equations

Dear Students of Differential Equations: As an undergraduate of the Electronic Engineering program at Cal Poly State University, I have completed advanced mathematics in Differential Equations, up to and including Laplace Transformations and Fourier Analysis. My objective in tutoring you in Differential Equations would be to help you overcome the first steps in identifying linear differential equations, and transforming them into its standard form, to guide you in applying the methods taught, to then transform equations that are solvable using the methods that you have already learned and applied in calculus and complex algebra.


Computer Programming

I have previous experience programming in DOS BASIC. I graduated with a B.S. in Electronic Engineering from Cal Poly State University with a concentration in Computer. I have taken coursework in Microprocessor Design, Computer Architecture, Programming in FORTRAN, Pascal, and C. I am currently learning the syntax for Python scripting.


Electrical Engineering

I acquired a B.S. in Electronic Engineering from Cal Poly State University with concentration in Computers with Senior Elective coursework in Fourier Transforms and Semiconductor Physics.


Computer Engineering

I graduated with a B.S. in Electronic Engineering from Cal Poly State University with a concentration in Computer. I have taken coursework in Microprocessor Design, Computer Architecture, Programming in FORTRAN, Pascal, and C. Upon graduation, I held performed silicon to system validation of Ethernet MACs across multiple PCI computer motherboard platforms and x86 microprocessors. I became knowledgable in computer platform design and northbridge/southbridge functionality and feature set.
