About David

I am currently a PhD student in Statistics at the University of Florida and a recent Master's graduate in Mathematics from The Ohio State University. I earned my Master's degree in Mathematics with a focus in education. I was a teaching assistant in their Mathematics department for calculus, college algebra, trigonometry, and their mathematics course for future teachers. I have over 10 years experience tutoring calculus, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, algebra, statistics, discrete mathematics, college level mathematics, SAT math, ACT math, and GRE math, and actuarial science. I also have experience with Microsoft Excel, SQL, Java, VBA, and R. I also worked for the university developing their online courses.

I formerly worked as an actuary for 4 years, which involved much work with Microsoft Excel, VBA, and Microsoft Word. In my most recent position at Ohio State I performed tasks in SQL, Java, and R. I am also a Georgia Tech alumni that studied Electrical Engineering and Applied Mathematics. I was a teaching assistant in the math and electrical engineering departments at Georgia Tech for calculus, linear algebra, probability and statistics, and signal processing courses.

I am a PhD in Statistics at the University of Florida. I currently teach statistics courses there.

I'm very patient and can explain difficult concepts in multiple ways during our tutoring session. Please contact me if you are interested in setting up a lesson.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Math

I'm currently a tutor for ACT math. I've assisted students with this material for the past few years. I've written practice questions for an ACT math study manual. I've also taught a summer SAT math prep course.

Actuarial Science

I previously worked as an actuary in San Francisco. I've passed the following actuarial exams:

Exam P - Probability
Exam FM - Financial Mathematics
Exam MFE - Financial Economics
Exam MLC - Life Contingencies
Exam C - Evaluation of Actuarial Models

Algebra 1

I have much experience tutoring algebra. I've taught both Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 to high school students. I was also a teaching assistant at Ohio State for a College Algebra course. As a master's student at Ohio State I took a linear algebra course, which adds to my background in algebra.

Algebra 2

I have much experience tutoring algebra. I've taught both Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 to high school students. I was also a teaching assistant at Ohio State for a College Algebra course. As a master's student at Ohio State I took a linear algebra course, which adds to my background in algebra.

Calculus

I'm was previously a teaching assistant for calculus 1 at Ohio State during my time as a graduate student from 2012-2013. I was a teaching assistant for calculus 2 at Georgia Tech for two semesters. I've tutored calculus for over 10 years.

Discrete Math

I've taken a formal courses in the mathematics and statistics department at Georgia Tech, Ohio State, and UF in combinatorics and number theory. As a teaching assistant in the math department, I taught a course in finite math, which utilized many techniques of discrete math. I also write tests for high school math competitions, which have ranged topics in discrete mathematics such as number theory.

Geometry

I've tutored geometry to middle school and high school students. As a master's student I took rigorous graduate level mathematics courses that required me to write proofs, which are a major component of geometry. I've also taken a differential geometry course at Ohio State, which adds to my background in geometry.

Linear Algebra

I have taken graduate level linear algebra courses and was a teaching assistant for an undergraduate linear algebra course. I am qualified to teach the following:
1) systems of linear equations
2) matrix algebra (determinants, multiplication)
3) Gaussian elimination
4) eigenvalues and eigenvectors
5) Gram-Schmidt process
6) LU decomposition

Microsoft Excel

I've used Microsoft Excel's advanced tools for the past 7 years. I'm experienced creating pivot tables, data tables, lookup formulas (vlookups, hlookups), and mathematical and statistical formulas (countif, sumif, sumproduct, etc.). I'm able to make sense of large data sets through Excel's advanced functionalities.

Prealgebra

I've tutored numerous students in algebra and pre-algebra. I will walk students through an algebra problem in a step-by-step fashion, allowing them to formulate their own process for solving an algebra problem. I make things as simple and clear as possible during our lesson.

Precalculus

I've tutored numerous high school and college students in precalculus. I taught courses in precalculus as Ohio State and Georgia Tech. As a tutor I make sure that students understand both the algebra and geometry components of the course, as well as making sure they are prepared for calculus if they decide to continue with mathematics.

Probability

I'm currently a PhD student in Statistics at the University of Florida. My research focus has foundations in probability and statistics. I've taught courses involving probability topics at the high school and college levels.

SAT Math

I'm currently a tutor for SAT math. I've assisted students with this material for many years. I've written practice questions for an ACT math study manual. I've also taught a summer SAT math prep course.

Statistics

I am currently a PhD student in Statistics and have taken formal graduate courses in probability and statistics. I am a statistics instructor at the University of Florida. I've tutored college and high school level statistics for over 10 years.
