About Shahab

I am a Data Scientist at IBM Big Data Analytics. I received my PhD in Bioengineering from UC-Berkeley/UCSF (jointly) and have BS and MS degrees in electrical and control engineering. I offer tutoring and homework/project help for undergrad and grad level courses in areas such as math, statistics, data science (machine learning, data mining, etc).

I have a full time job and don't depend on tutoring income. Consequently, I only take one or two students at a time and dedicate my time to their success.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Biostatistics

I have teaching experience on this subject. I was a Biostatistics Teaching Assistant (TA) at UCSF when I was a PhD student. At work I use biostatistical methods such as hypothesis testing, regression analysis, T-test, chi-square test, correlation analysis, etc.

MATLAB

I am proficient in MATLAB programming and have experience teaching it. Before switching to Python, I used MATLAB as my primary programming language for more than 8 years.

Python

As a data scientist, I use Python every day as my primary programming language.

great!

Shahab came to the lesson very prepared and was willing to spend as much time as I needed on each topic until I understood it. He was very patient and helpful.
