Subjects

Computer

Python

Python

I did Python programming from 2002 to 2005. Recently, for a consulting job, I also used Python. I have studied mathematical and statistical libraries of NumPy and SciPy which are extensions standard Python libraries. I also advised a student on Python

Corporate Training

Statistics

Statistics

Statistics is very closely related to probability, which is an area of my expertise. I have worked in many areas of Statistics, including hypothesis testing, t-test, ANOVA, regression, cluster analysis, factor analysis, and time series. I have also used many statistical computing packages.

Homeschool

Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus is one my favorite subjects. I have tutored more high school and college students in Calculus than in any other subject. I tutor both one-dimensional calculus and advanced multidimensional calculus.
Physics,

Physics

I took many courses in physics and mathematical physics at university. Most of my research have been in the area of applied math with techniques and concepts common with theoretical physics. Beside classical mechanics and electromagnetic theory, I have studied general relativity, quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I have tutored many high-school students, including in Precalculus. I think Precalculus is a great preparation for calculus and beyond, as it consolidates the algebra, trigonometry and analytical geometry that the student has learned up to that point. I find tutoring Precalculus exciting and pleasurable.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

My area specialization in graduate school was differential geometry, which is very related to differential equations. Many of the papers that I have published use differential equations, e.g., Riccati equation or parabolic partial differential equations. I have developed derivatives valuation software based on finite difference solutions to differential equations. I have tutored students in differential equations
Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

I took courses in Discrete math when in College. I have done consultancy based on Graph theory, which is part of discrete math. I have tutored students on Discrete math. Discrete math overlaps with set theory and logic, both of which are basic to higher mathematics and my expertise thereof.
Finite Math,

Finite Math

Finite math and discrete math are more-or-less synonymous. As such my qualification for discrete math also apply to finite math. These include my education my teaching experience, and my experience in the industry.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

Linear algebra is basic to almost all parts of mathematics, and I have a Ph.D. in Mathematics. I have published many papers that use linear algebra. I have written many computer programs that use such topics in linear as algebra matrix factorization and eigen vectors. I have tutored many students in linear algebra
Logic,

Logic

Logic is basic to mathematics and I am a highly trained mathematician. I took logic courses when I was a college student. I have tutored college students on Discrete Math much of which overlaps with a course in logic.

Statistics Tutor

Fred taught statistics. He is very knowledgeable and patient. Fred was accommodating with time frames that worked for me. Thank you Fred very much for your help.

Violet, 2 lessons with Fred

Great Calculus teacher

Helped my daughter with AP Calculus and is a wonderful and patient teacher and is always well prepared with extra notes and tips to make the topics easier to understand.

Sree, 8 lessons with Fred

Excellent!

Great review of the materials. Explained well - the important concepts behind the formulas/operations. Put extra effort in providing me with an "essential concepts"/review sheet.

Joseph, 7 lessons with Fred

Knowledgeable and great to work through problems with

Today we covered a couple of topics in differential equations, including variation of parameters and euler-cauchy equations. Fred helped me work through some of the problems I found to be challenging.

Hayden, 6 lessons with Fred

Fred is knowledgeable, organized and works with the student to understand the problem.

Fred tutored my son for his precalculus honors course. He is very thorough and explains the details of the problem. He created extra material to help explain difficult concepts.
