I tutored at Yale as a graduate student about 300 hr/yr for 5 years, and coordinated the Math & Science Tutoring Program there for 3 years. As a professor at University of Colorado Denver and Research Scientist at MIT, I've taught many college and postgraduate mathematics and science subjects. What I love about tutoring is helping students realize that they already know more and are capable of more than they think, and fostering their confidence and independence.

I tutored at Yale as a graduate student about 300 hr/yr for 5 years, and coordinated the Math & Science Tutoring Program there for 3 years. As a professor at University of Colorado Denver and Research Scientist at MIT, I've taught many college and postgraduate mathematics and science subjects. What I love about tutoring is helping students realize that they already know more and are capable of more than they think, and fostering their confidence and independence.
As a professor at University of Colorado Denver I taught "Calculus II", "Linear Algebra and Differential Equations", "Math Clinic", "Numerical Analysis I", "Quantitative Finance", "Riemannian Geometry", "Tensor analysis and curvature" and "Wavelet Analysis". I know a lot about most college-level and several graduate-level math subjects, especially Data Science & Scientific Computing.
As a professor at University of Colorado Boulder and University of Colorado Denver and a Research Scientist at MIT I taught "Burgers & Navier-Stokes Equations", "Einstein's Field Equations", "Gravitation and Cosmology", "How to Build Numerical Simulations of Multi-Scale Physics" and "Methods of Engineering Analysis". As a student, I was expert in Quantum Mechanics and Classical Mechanics. As a postdoc I specialized in Numerical Methods for Partial Differential Equations.
I still remember what it was like to be a student, so when tutoring I try to put myself back in that position but show how to organize and make use of knowledge, books, notes and online resources to solve problems and build confidence.
