Hi there. I have to admit even the summary of my resume won't fit in the two paragraphs that Wyzant is allowing. :-) So here's a very abbreviated verison. I received the Ph.D. in engineering from UCSD in 1992 and a B.S. degree in mathematical sciences (probability and statistics) from UCSB in 1985. I've received technical awards from various professional organizations and an honorary doctorate too. In 2009, I had the great privilege to be named one of the top-100 most influential alumni in...

Public Speaking
#### Public Speaking

I have given over 200 invited lectures/tutorials in my career, including numerous events for the public at museums, universities, and for corporations. My educational background includes a Ph.D. in engineering from UCSD, where I was named one of the top-100 most-influential alumni in the 50-year history of the university (2009). I have served as editor-in-chief of two technical journals and two general audience publications, each requiring many speeches, both for technical people and the general public.

Statistics
#### Statistics

I earned the BS degree from UCSB in math with an emphasis in probability and statistics. I took 13 p/stat courses as part of my undergrad degree (all 12 they offered plus an additional individual study course). My Ph.D. in engineering (systems) was essentially applied statistics for engineering. I've taught statistics at the undergrad and grad levels at UCSD, and also currently teach statistics for adult learning at a local university.

Elementary Math
#### Elementary Math

I've tutored math from grade school to grad school for a very long time. I started tutoring in high school (1979) and really enjoy helping people learn math, whether or not they're in elementary school or working on a Ph.D.

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

I've taught Algebra 1/2 at the college level and do so currently for one of the adult learning universities in town. I've also taught many other subjects in math. My style is relaxed and I like to ensure that students both learn the material and have a good time doing so.

Algebra 2,
#### Algebra 2

I've taught Algebra 1/2 at the high school and college levels, and do so currently for one of the adult-learning universities in San Diego.

Prealgebra,
#### Prealgebra

I regularly teach algebra at a local adult learning university. My math experience includes a BS in math from UCSB and Ph.D. in engineering from UCSD.

Biostatistics,
#### Biostatistics

My BS is in statistics/probability from UCSB (1995). I took 13 classes as part of that degree. I took biostatistics as a grad student at SDSU in 1996. My Ph.D. is in engineering (systems) from UCSD (1992). From 2000-2008 I was editor-in-chief of the biology journal BioSystems (Elsevier). I have tutored students in biostats at SDSU through Grade Potential during the past 4 years.

## Excellent tutor

David has an expert knowledge of statistics Since he has a systems engineering back ground , he explained each concept with a real life situation how each formulas are applied. The lesson was stimulating and fun. I recommend David as an excellent tutor.

## Knowledgable and student-needs focused

David was able to explain concepts in a way I could understand them. He quickly realized my style of learning and adapted his teaching to what work best for me.

## Clear and easy to follow up

Very clear explaining and teaching. Good for people to understand the knowledge. Also, he is patient to explain any questions.
