### I Enjoy Teaching a blend of the following:

- Basic Math to Calculus
- Basic Physics
- Electronics (beginning to advanced)
- Programming
- Website Design
- Financial Modeling and Simulations (model your retirement plan?)

### Learning Philosophy:

- Low pressure - learning should be enjoyable
- Foster curiosity by probing basic questions:
- What is energy?
- How can gravitational energy be negative energy?
- How does gravity affect the shape of space and the passage of time?
- How is light generated?
- How does a lever multiply a force?
- What is the math behind a pair of pliers?
- How does a wing provide lift?
- Why do you get shocked when you walk across the carpet and touch the door knob?
- What is Ohm's Law?
- What is a capacitor, inductor and resistor?
- How does a transistor work?
- How does a solar cell work?
- What is the difference between speed, velocity and acceleration?
- How does Einstein's Relativity allow time travel into the future?
- In Calculus, why is integration the inverse of differentiation?

- Discover by demonstration and experiment when feasible:
- Verify that Pi is about 3.14 using a tape measure.
- Show that the area of a circle is Pi times the radius squared using paper and scissors.
- Show how the angles of any triangle add up to exactly 180 degrees.
- Prove the Pythagorean Theorem using paper and scissors and then using algebra.
- Demonstrate how a pulley system can lift 40 pounds using only 10 pounds of force.
- Check Ohm's Law using a battery, resistor and multimeter.
- Learn to code by making your own website.
- Gain self-confidence and exceed by going beyond the common knowledge
