Carnegie Mellon University (Computer Science)
UC San Diego (Master's)
UC San Diego (PhD)
I studied Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon and I am now a PhD student at UCSD.
I use math, programming and statistics to study how people learn. I have a background in computer science / applied math, and I have also studied cognitive psychology and neuroscience, giving me a unique perspective when I teach and tutor. Not only do I know the technical content, but I also know how people work, and how to design lessons based on that.
My biggest interest in teaching it to show students the applicability of math to any area they may wish to pursue, and I can find applications to illustrate mathematical facts in many fields, including biology and art (music): the greatest pleasure in teaching is meeting my students years later, when they have gone on and used what they know to make a difference in whatever field they chose to work in after college.
I have a lot of experience teaching, having taught multivariate statistics at UCSD, and been the teaching assistant for courses in programming, statistics and neuroscience. I usually teach upper-level (senior and junior) courses, but this also means I know what students will need to know later in their college careers, so I can help younger students master the basics. I have taken additional training in applying neuroscience and psychology principles to teaching, and I have won several teaching awards. I studied Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon and I am now a PhD student at UCSD.

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.
I have a computer science B.S. from Carnegie Mellon, widely regarded as one the world's top CS programs. I am also a PhD student at UCSD and working in the Computer Science department, and I've done several internships in the technology industry.
I use linear algebra heavily in my (applied math) research as a PhD Student at UCSD. I have taught a course at UCSD, COGS109, which is multivariate statistics, and relies heavily on linear algebra. I have taken several graduate courses on linear algebra at UCSD.
I use MATLAB daily as PhD student. I have been using it for research for about 10 years, including several years before starting graduate school. I have also been a teaching assistant and instructor for our undergraduate MATLAB course, 5 times.
I have written several Python projects in industry, including Nokia Research Palo Alto and a startup in San Diego. I have also used Python in my research as a PhD student at UCSD.
