About Brian


Bio

I love teaching, and I've taught and tutored in numerous formats for over 20 years now. I have a PhD from Brown and a BA from Harvard, both in Applied Mathematics. I've taught Math, Computer Science, Statistics and Data Science at places like UC-Berkeley, Brown, University of San Francisco, and the Metis Data Science Bootcamp. I currently consult and teach corporate training classes for companies large and small in Data Science / Machine Learning. I am a regular speaker / presenter at...

I love teaching, and I've taught and tutored in numerous formats for over 20 years now. I have a PhD from Brown and a BA from Harvard, both in Applied Mathematics. I've taught Math, Computer Science, Statistics and Data Science at places like UC-Berkeley, Brown, University of San Francisco, and the Metis Data Science Bootcamp. I currently consult and teach corporate training classes for companies large and small in Data Science / Machine Learning. I am a regular speaker / presenter at ODSC (Open Data Science Conference).

When not teaching and consulting, I am active in research (publishing in academic journals / conferences), open source code development (I'm the author of 3 Python packages), and creating content for my data science themed YouTube Channel. I also spend a lot of time raising my two young daughters to be amazing people (and perhaps excellent mathematicians as well!).

For me, teaching is an art, where you have to be able to explain a concept from various points of view. Everyone has a different learning style, so it is important to be able to mix different approaches to reach students. I always try to "level set" with each student - find out where they are comfortable, where they are stuck, and make sure they understand the foundational concepts before trying to explain the more advanced ones.

Please feel free to reach out if I can help you in any way. I'm very responsive and will do my best to help you out, whatever you need.

Very knowledgeable in subject area

Brian was very knowledgeable in his subject area. I scheduled him for some last minute test prep and he was very helpful, personable, and added additional insight. I recommend him as a tutor and would use him again.

Marisa, 1 lesson with Brian

Great tutor!

Really great tutor - explains all data science/statistics related concepts really well and is super patient. I highly recommend Brian, he’s an amazing tutor

Haneen, 8 lessons with Brian

Excellent Teacher

We went over all questions I asked about smoothly and made most problems clearer than what they were originally during notes

XGBoost modeling

Brian helped me by reviewing my python code and machine learning model. My main issue was data leakage. By going through my notebook cell by cell Brian and were able to identify a variable that was causing the majority of my issue. His experience in the field is invaluable for any aspiring data scientist.
