[…computer engineer?]

A.k.a. my day job – mostly on the management side though. Engineering is my life:

  • I have a Master of Engineering degree in electrical engineering and a baccalaureate degree in electronics and engineering technology,
  • an active membership in the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (better known as the IEEE),
  • and love mathematics and statistics – areas where engineering thrives!

[…professional tutor?]

Yes – mainly in mathematics and statistics; I have over 12 years of tutoring experience.

[…math geek?]

That’s me! I’ve loved mathematics since I was a kid; even now, I find calculus and statistics especially fascinating.

[…a concourse of research?]

Yes indeed:

con·course \ˈkän-ˌkrs, ˈkäŋ-\

1:  an act or process of coming together and merging

    • the lessons. Blog posts chronicling my tutoring escapades.
    • the nook. Blog news and notes, commentary, poetry, and other miscellany. (Hey, that rhymed!)
