I'm Michael, a UCLA Master's graduate of Computer Science and now a Data Scientist at a satellite company. My educational accomplishments include a 2300 SAT, 330 GRE, a full academic scholarship for my bachelor's, competition in ICPC, being Vice President of my ACM chapter, and hosting a hackathon. I am passionate about teaching programming and STEM topics. In university, I attended teaching courses and served as teaching assistant for Cyber Security and Intro to Programming. I learned to teach students and develop my own content and administer tests. I both taught in a classroom setting and individually tutored students in office hours. Each student presented his or her unique learning situation, so I learned how to ensure each unique success. My students were always extremely happy with my teaching and left me consistently high reviews.

At work, I am a professional Python Data Scientist and tutor. I work daily in data manipulation in Pandas, visualization through Plotly, building machine learning and deep learning models, and building notebooks and scripts. I excel in tutoring students through bootcamps and college certificates, and have taught dozens of people from MIT students to Google engineers.

My teaching approach is tailored exactly to my student's pace. I will personally prepare a lesson plan to teach a particular concept or project, or create a larger framework toward building a successful knowledge base. I teach Socratically by walking through examples so that we are always engaged with real applications. I keep a personal profile of each person I tutor, allowing us to track progress and maintain a tailored learning experience to ensure success. With my range of experience from academia to industry, I am confident and enthusiastic about tutoring anyone. I have also always empathized greatly with a younger audience, feeling especially fulfilled starting them on the right path! My journey has been long but rewarding, and I hope to guide others down the path I've forged.

Machine Learning - Great session

Michael is a very knowledgeable and skilled tutor. He explains the material thoroughly and makes it easy to understand. He taught me a lot from the basics of python to machine learning very efficiently. I learned Python visualization, regression, F1 score, ROC Curves. Thank you very much, Micheal!

Great Tutor: Print Statements to Machine Learning in 4 Weeks

Started my lessons with Michael back in mid January & had no previous experience coding in python. I am chemist by trade but wanted to learn more about python since there are tons of applications. From the first meeting he had me up & running writing code where I was struggling to import basic software packages & do print statements. We are currently several lessons in & we are tackling projects such as machine learning & web scraping. I have definitely learned a ton & it has opened my eye to the overall landscape of where AI technology is headed. If you are considering learning python Michael will do a great job of getting you up & going. I would highly recommend!

Great Tutor

Very helpful with learning data science in python, specifically naive bayes and random forests. Was very responsive and helpful via messages as well as through the meet.

Professional and knowledgeable

My son really enjoyed the session with Michael. He joined the lesson on time and seemed very knowledgeable! He prepared to make an assessment on my son’s knowledge base and proposed a study plan as a result. He seemed very passionate and good with young children. Thank you Michael!

Great Session!

Michael is patient and very knowledge. He knows how to teach in addition to knowing the material. I worked on coding with Data Science. Michael helped me to understand the coding and the concepts of the subject that I was working on.
