SAT Math

I professionally tutored high school students for two years. Most of that tutoring was to help students prepare for and improve their SAT scores in the SAT Math section. I have also helped students prepare for the SAT Level I & II Math Subject tests.



ACT Math

I have two years of professional experience helping high school students prepare for the subjects encountered during the ACT Math Test. Students will gain the skills to become proficient in the six main areas of mathematics encountered in the ACT Math Test: Pre-Algebra, Elementary Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, Coordinate Geometry, Plane Geometry, and Trigonometry.

ACT Science

Electrical Engineering

I possess a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering(t) from Oregon Institute of Technology (OIT); graduating Cum Laude, with a GPA of 3.72. I was employed by OIT as a paid tutor, and teacher's assistant during my four years there. I also tutored students privately, per their request. I have extensively tutored these EE courses: DC Circuits, AC circuits, LaPlace Transforms, Electronics I, Electronics II, Analog Circuit Design, Fourier Transforms, Electrical Power (teacher's assistant), Digital Signal Processing, Digital Systems I&II, and Communication Systems. In addition, I am proficient in academically popular engineering software; including LabVIEW, Matlab, LtSPICE, and Eagle. In the past, I have worked professionally as an electrical engineer for Logitech, and Novellus. I currently develop commercial electronic products for my own company, and as a consultant.
