About Damian

I teach microeconomics at Santa Clara University, but I like to tutor occasionally near my home in Oakland (Rockridge).

In undergrad, I tutored calculus and some economics. Now, I teach principles of microeconomics and intermediate microeconomics, as well as environmental econ. I prefer not to tutor macro. Please contact me to see if I can help you. I got my PhD from UC Berkeley in 2011.

In general, I am better for infrequent and one-time tutoring rather than consistent weekly tutoring. I am often able to meet on short notice. Contact me to see if the fit is good, and send a problem set or exam if you can so I can tell you how helpful I can be.

ONLINE: I also tutor online if you cannot make it to Oakland. Students have found that online problem set help is particularly helpful where you send me your written answers and I critique them and walk you through detailed solutions should yours be incorrect. Online tutoring like this is more efficient, I think, than online interaction using the video/audio setup on this website (it's basically Skype with a whiteboard, which is actually pretty nice). I have done both and we can figure out what is best suited for you.

Really awesome tutor!

Damian was an awesome tutor who helped me a lot in conceptualizing economic concepts. He really understands everything inside and out and is able to help me answer those nuanced questions that really help fill in the gaps in my microeconomics knowledge.
