I am a fully qualified teacher (QTLS) with six years experience teaching engineering and mathematics at Levels 2, 3 and university level. My experience includes one-to-one teaching as well as teaching small groups.
Now approaching 10 years as an Electronics Design Engineer and Leading Electronics Teams designing Laboratory Instruments and Large Machines, I am responsible for Circuit Designs and training of Engineers and Graduates. I have always tutored students from I myself was a student, through to today, where I have now successfully tutored and seen many students through their Module Exams, Full Degrees and even lead them into successful careers.
I currently lead Electronics and Mechanical teams as Lead Hardware Engineer to a Medical Company designing Neonatal Ventilators. I train Engineers, Graduates and Non-Technical Staff, as well as prepare documentation and organise Projects for success and on-time and on-budget delivery.
Tutoring students, my style is to synchronise our efforts with their Module Notes, while adding in strong and practical understanding of governing and foundational principles, while we tackle the theory and associated equations. Adding a modern and relevant industrial perspective is my unique offering in this process. Our efforts are entirely driven by the student, slowing down on more challenging topics, and drilling into a depth of detail appropriate to my student. Satisfying desired deadlines for covering course materials and preparing courseworks will always be the main drive of how our time is prepared.
As a tutor, I have supported individuals studying A-Levels, BTEC and of course studying at University, up to PhD level in Electrical & Electronic Engineering, as well as Computer Science. I am certainly also happy, and competent to support students in Physics and Mathematics as desired.
My particular strength is in Physics and Maths (esp. Pure Maths/Mechanics/Physics).
I have tutored Cambridge A Levels in Maths, Further Maths and Physics, teaching them to achieve a high standard.
At degree level I can assist with technical report writing. I designed and delivered workshop on technical writing (using Latex). I have advised PhD students, focusing on structuring their thesis/dissertations and research papers.
As a former University MSc admissions tutor I can advise on completing personal statements, and what to look for in a university, and have assisted drafting personal statements university entry.
I have taught at the University of Notre Dame Australia which scores first in Teaching. There I regularly received high teaching evaluations, letters of merit and commendation from Deans and the Vice Chancellor. I came in the top percentile for excellence in teaching (UNIJOBS 2013). I have over seven years full-time teaching experience as well as tutoring one-on-one and online. I have tutored advanced high school students, undergraduate and supervised postgraduate dissertations.
My teaching and research areas of expertise are: philosophy of religion, epistemology, free-will, critical thinking and informal logic.
I worked as a teaching assistant, marker, and lab instructor at the University of Alberta, Canada. I taught power electronics and variable speed drives, where I helped students to understand and apply courses theoretical material in lab sessions using typical industrial equipment (PLX15 DC Drive, PowerFlex 70 AC Drive, Allen-Bradley Induction Machine, and Power quality analyzer).
Additionally, I taught several power system courses (Electrical Measurements, Energy Conversion Systems, Induction Machines, Modern Control, Transmission and Distribution of Electrical Energy, Power System Analysis and Power Electronics) at Ain Shams University and Arab Academy for Science and Technology and Maritime Transport, Egypt.
I also prepared theoretical material and co-supervision of Power Electronics, Electrical Machines, Power Systems, Protection, High Voltage, Automation (ABB PLCs and ABB VSDs), and Electrical Measurements labs.
PhD in Power Electronics Design Engineer with over 8 years Academic and Industrial experience in Electronic and Power Electronics. Qualified to teach Electronics, Power Electronics, Electric Machines, Control system, Numerical Method, Engineering Math, Digital Systems, Transformer Design, Matlab, LTSpice, KiCad.
