Why these classes!


One of the things that I use to see as an electronics instructor was how the new students struggled for several months when they first started school. The struggle was for several reasons in several different areas. For many students, first, it was the going back to school part. For some, it was the learning part. Yet for others, it was the basic math they had forgotten.

After talking with several college and vocational school electrical and electronics instructors, it seems the problem may have gotten worse over the years. This problem is one that I believe I can solve with just a month of organized on-line tutoring.

I will be tutoring on-line live. We have made on-line tutoring our primary way of teaching. This will allow me to teach students located just about anywhere. If you are interested in possibly taking a class please let me here from you via the contact form.

For more details on the planned classes and schedules, please visit my "CLASSES" page, using the link at the top of this page. Classes will only be held if there are enough students to make the class work.


Who am I?    I am Edward Addy, "Your Instructor".


I have been in electronics for decades. The short story is, I started my career in the US Army as a Telephone Wireman, then Lineman then advanced again to being a High Powered Tactical Radio Operator and Radio Technician. After my military service, I attended the university majoring in Electronics and minoring in Computer Science. Then I started my civilian career as an electronics technician working for Control Data Corp., then moved to Electrocraft Corp. where I was promoted to an engineering technician. Several years later I was offered a post secondary teaching position for electronics and basic math.

After teaching for several years I was offered a radio communications position as a radio operator and radio technician at the South Pole Station, Antarctica. When I was finished down there I started my own communications company which I ran for 18 years. I then took a position at the top of the world as a long-range radar technician in Point Barrow, Alaska.

This career has given me an exciting and interesting life. I have been able to travel with this career around the US, to Alaska, to Germany, to New Zealand, and even as far away as the South Pole Station, Antarctica.

I have now retired, and have decided to keep active in the electronics field by teaching a series of classes to help those that are going into either the electrical or electronics fields themselves. Helping them to enter their future school with stronger basic math skills and a basic understanding of electricity. These classes will be live on-line and be interactive, using modern meeting technology making it easier for students to attend and from a larger geographic area.

When not working, my wife Becky and I enjoy spending time aboard our boat, The Sandra Faye, kept on Lake Superior.
