I am a patient and flexible assistant helping you to learn these difficult subjects. Few people are aware of the challenge you are undertaking and some special help may make all the difference in your success. I am retired from industry having worked in many functions involving Manufacturing, Engineering, Quality Assurance and Program Management. As a Tutor, I can help with mathematics including Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus I, II, III, & Differential equations. Physics I & II ranging fro... [more]

Algebra 1

I can be of help in this subject area creating example problems and showing methods to build understanding. Subjects areas include solving polynomials for the roots; equations for lines, parabolas, hyperbolas, circles, etc. Help with understanding graphs and word problems.

Algebra 2

I can be of great help in this subject area creating example problems, showing methods to help understanding. Subjects areas include solving polynomials for the roots; equations for lines, parabolas, hyperbolas, circles, etc.

Calculus

Pre-Calculus, Calculus I, II, III are subject areas that I can help with. The understanding of Limits leading up to the definition of the derivative are critical to understand the basics of the Calculus. Later using derivatives to solve word problems including rates and some analytical geometry. Integral Calculus comes later using that to calculate areas and solve problems involving Newtonian physics. Calculus III involves multiple integrals and three dimensional vector calculus for those students pursuing Science and Engineering degrees.

Geometry

Physics

Physics is really a broad subject covering the laws of motion through the basic nature of matter. I am experienced and knowledgeable in: Newtonian physics, the laws of motion defined originally by Isaac Newton including the 1st, 2nd and 3rd laws covering Ballistics, Statics, Dynamics, Impulse & Momentum and, Fluid mechanics. Forces due to electric and magnetic fields including the work of Coulomb, Maxwell, Faraday and others. I am very familiar with electric circuits and the quantitative analysis associated with them.

Prealgebra

Precalculus

Trigonometry

I have knowledge of the following trigonometric functions: Sine, Cosine, Tangent, Cotangent, Secant, Cosecant. I also excel at geometric problem solving.

GRE

I am not an expert at the GRE exam. However I am skilled with mathematical subjects and writing and analysis. If you are searching for a collaborator in preparation for the GRE, I would be a good choice.

Differential Equations

I studied Differential equations as both Math courses as well as analysis courses in Electrical Engineering. I am most familiar with LaPlace transform method of solving linear equations. There are a lot of "tricks" involved that mathematicians have devised over the years and it takes practice to use them. I can help you solve problems creating examples for later reference.

Electrical Engineering

I hold a BSEE degree from University of Missouri and am a registered professional engineer in Missouri. I have worked as an Engineer and Engineering Manager and later as manufacturing and program manager roles for medical device companies. I can help you with active and passive circuit analysis problems using Node voltage & Mesh current methods as well as Ohm's and Kirchhoff's laws.
