Electricity and electronics calculations made easy!

This course includes video and text explanations of everything in electricity and electronics, and it includes more than 40 worked through examples with easy-to-understand explanations. 'Fundamentals of Electricity and Electronics' is organized into eight sections:

  1. Basic concepts
  2. Basic laws
  3. Methods of analysis
  4. Circuit theorems
  5. Operational amplifiers
  6. Capacitors and inductors
  7. Sinusoids and phasors
  8. Sinusoidal steady-state analysis

These are the eight fundamental chapters in the study of electrical and electronic engineering.

And here’s what you get inside of every lesson:

Videos: Watch over my shoulder as I solve problems for every single electricity and electronics issue you’ll encounter in class. We start from the beginning... First I teach the theory. Then I do an example problem. I explain the problem, the steps I take and why I take them, how to work through the yucky, fuzzy middle parts, and how to simplify the answer when you get it.

Notes: The notes section of each theory lesson is where you find the most important things to remember. The notes include tips and tricks on how to study as well as how to save time in tests and exams. Ultimately, I cover everything you need to know to pass your class and nothing you don’t.

One-On-One Assistance: You can ask me for electricity and electronics help in the Q&A section any time, any day, whether it's related to the video content or another problem you're struggling with at home. Either way, I'm here to help you pass and do the best you possibly can!

Who is the target audience?
  • First year engineering students
  • University, college or school students taking an electricity and electronics course
  • Anyone interested in gaining mastery of the core concepts of Electricity and Electronics

We Don't Lecture, We Teach

Leon Petrou graduated with a Bachelor's of Engineering degree with distinction from the University of Pretoria (UP). He specialized in Industrial and Systems Engineering. Leon has a passion for problem solving and education. He loves teaching others and simplifying the learning curve for engineering students around the world. 

UP Engineering is an esteemed group of engineers who tutor the engineering courses that they themselves completed at university. Due to their experience in the course, they know how students think and understand where and why students struggle. Therefore, the tutors are able to explain thoroughly via easy-to-understand, step by step explanations to help students better understand the key concepts of the course.
