Bio

I have a B.S. in Math from Harvey Mudd College and a Ph.D. in Applied Math from CalTech. My coursework was primarily in Differential Equations and Fluid Dynamics, including Plasma Physics at the graduate level. I was an Instructor in Applied Math at MIT for two years, teaching college level Calculus, Differential Equations and Linear Algebra. My research focused on Fluid Dynamics and Dynamical Systems.

I have a B.S. in Math from Harvey Mudd College and a Ph.D. in Applied Math from CalTech. My coursework was primarily in Differential Equations and Fluid Dynamics, including Plasma Physics at the graduate level. I was an Instructor in Applied Math at MIT for two years, teaching college level Calculus, Differential Equations and Linear Algebra. My research focused on Fluid Dynamics and Dynamical Systems.

I spent 4 years in Ballistic Missile Defense at MIT/Lincoln Laboratory and then left science to work in the finance world. I was a quantitative equity portfolio manager in a hedge fund and later a foreign exchange specialist in the credit card industry.

For the past 2 years I have been teaching Math and Physics in an independent High School where I spend much of my active time working 1-on-1 with students outside of the classroom. I most enjoy working with students at all levels of Calculus.

I enjoy working with students and responding to them with individually tailored advice and practice material. My experience in Partial Differential Equations, Fluid Mechanics and Physics allows me to give context and applications of Calculus beyond the normal scope of textbooks.
