I have a rich and successful experience Teaching/Mentoring the Quantitative subjects: Math/Physics/Statistics.

Methodology

I emphasize strongly practical involvement of the student(s) in the learning process. That is, as soon as some new material has been covered has been covered I make sure the student(s) apply and use it to do some practical examples.

Background

I am an engineer with specialization in Computational work. Hold a BScEE, MScEe and Doctorate in Electrical Engineering. My experience includes Teaching/Mentoring at the University and High School level. My teaching methodology emphasizes involving the student in practical learning; that is as soon as I have covered some new material I get the student(s) to apply it by doing some exercises.
