Bio

Hello, I hope to teach you the Math or Computer Science that you wish to learn.

I learned to teach at a young age. My brother two years younger is smart. If he didn't know how to do something – solve a math problem, hit a baseball – I'd thoroughly show and tell him how to do so. Then, I'd ask him to show me. Finally I'd ask him to explain it in his own words. This is my philosophy of teaching – to make you an expert who can teach it!

Mastering a new concept feels good. Mastering a concept...

Hello, I hope to teach you the Math or Computer Science that you wish to learn.

I learned to teach at a young age. My brother two years younger is smart. If he didn't know how to do something – solve a math problem, hit a baseball – I'd thoroughly show and tell him how to do so. Then, I'd ask him to show me. Finally I'd ask him to explain it in his own words. This is my philosophy of teaching – to make you an expert who can teach it!

Mastering a new concept feels good. Mastering a concept that has troubled you feels even better.

I earned my BS in Mathematics, half in high school and half at FAU. If you are a motivated HS student, ask me how to graduate college in 2 years. Your parents will love you. I mean, I'm sure they love you. But they'll love you even more.

I then earned my MS in Mathematics at the University of Miami, where I emphasized Algebra, Analysis, and Probability. At UM, I taught Pre-Calculus. My students earned the highest average score on the common final exam. That is, my students learned the most and retained what I taught them.

I then worked for 2 years as an Actuary. I passed 7 Society of Actuaries exams: Calculus and Linear Algebra; Probability and Statistics; Regression and Time Series Analysis; Statistical Programming; Operations Research; Numerical Analysis; and Finance. These subjects are the foundation of Machine Learning.

I next earned my MBA at Duke University with a Fuqua Fellowship. Then I went to work for myself.

Today I am a data scientist and professional teacher. I twice earned 800 on the GMAT and have taught many people the GMAT. I also earned 1600 on the SAT and have taught many people the SAT. Most importantly, I've taught many high school and college students Math and Computer Science in a one-to-one environment.

I love Math and can teach you Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, and anything else.

I also love to program and can teach you Python and the Mathematics of Machine Learning.

Discrete Math

I took Discrete Mathematics in earning my Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics. I have also taken classes in Abstract Algebra and Combinatorics that build upon the concepts in Discrete Mathematics. I passed a PhD qualifying exam in Abstract Algebra, which builds on Discrete Math. I have taught a dozen clients in a one-to-one classroom the bible of Discrete Math 'Discrete Mathematics and Its Applications', 8th Edition, by Dr. Kenneth Rosen. Discrete Math is foundational to my instruction of Computer Science because computers employ non-continuous Mathematics, i.e. Discrete Mathematics.
