Online Maths and Stats Tutoring from former University Professor

Featured Review:

## Fantastic knowledgeable and patient tutor!

Greg , 1 lesson with MichaelMichael is an amazing tutor. He taught an extremely complex topic and made it understandable. He went way beyond to ensure my son can understand the topic including sending extra practice materials and answering follow-up questions. If you need a tutor for this subject area, Michael is a wonderful choice. A+

I began tutoring during high school, continued through college, and began teaching regular classes during graduate school. After earning my PhD in Mathematics, I taught at a small, highly-selective Liberal Arts College and later at a public Minority-Serving Institution. I have received several teaching awards and was a tenured professor.

After an initial adjustment to fully-online classes during the pandemic, I found online teaching to be much more effective and enjoyable. When my...

Statistics
#### Statistics

I successfully taught Intro Stats (up to two-sample hypothesis tests and linear regression) at the university level for 10+ years. Most of my students were not math or science majors; many were afraid of math courses and had the impression that they would not be successful. I emphasize understanding of material and concepts rather than complicated manual calculations. Actual computations are best handled with technology; I can use several free alternatives depending on your needs.

Calculus,
#### Calculus

I have tutored and taught the standard college Calculus sequence (through infinite series and the multivariable/vector material) to a wide variety of students. I've also taught "Business Calculus" and tutored advanced math for engineers (Kreysig's book). During graduate school, I trained and supervised Calculus tutors for my university's math department.

Precalculus,
#### Precalculus

"Precalculus" doesn't mean "all math before Calculus" but is instead a collection of prerequisite material (from Algebra, Trigonometry, and Analytic Geometry) that is needed for a Calculus course. It's therefore crucial that a tutor understands not just the Precalculus material itself, but also how that material will be needed in the future. I have taught and tutored all of these courses (and beyond) for many years. I will make sure you not only succeed in your current course, but also build a solid foundation for what's to come later.

Differential Equations,
#### Differential Equations

During graduate school, I taught the standard Differential Equations course for many semesters and received a Graduate Teaching Award for my work. I can also cover introductory material on PDE's (Heat/Diffusion, Wave, and Laplace equations via Fourier series).

Discrete Math,
#### Discrete Math

I successfully taught Computational Discrete Math (Algorithms, Boolean Logic, Elementary Cryptography, etc.) the university level for 15+ years. This is the required sophomore-level course that CompSci majors dread, because it is often taught by Mathematics faculty who treat it as an upper-level math course and refuse to take students' backgrounds into account. As a Math PhD, I specialized in Number Theory and taught it at the university level for many years, and thus I can teach "real" Discrete Math as well.

Linear Algebra,
#### Linear Algebra

I have taught the basic university-level Linear Algebra course (Systems of Equations, Matrices, Vector Spaces, Eigenvalues, etc.), sometimes as a mostly computational course (for engineering and science majors) and sometimes as a more theoretical, proof-based course. I have also taught the standard courses that rely on the material and methods from basic Linear Algebra: Multivariable Calculus, Differential Equations, and Discrete Math. I strongly prefer using technology to make tedious calculations easier, I can work with the computational tools that are right for you, even if your instructor insists on a low-technology approach.

Logic,
#### Logic

I have taught introductory Logic (Truth Tables, Deductive Reasoning, Boolean Algebra, etc.) across various courses during my 20+ years at the university level. This includes a wide range of students and majors: Elementary and Math Education, Computer Science, and Mathematics. I am an also and experienced programmer (currently specializing in Python) and can explain logic in this setting as well.

"Precalculus" doesn't mean "all math before Calculus" but is instead a collection of prerequisite material (from Algebra, Trigonometry, and Analytic Geometry) that is needed for a Calculus course.

Probability,
#### Probability

I successfully taught Intro Stats (which includes basic probability) at the university level for 10+ years. I've also taught basic probability within the context of Finite Math, Discrete Math, and Linear Algebra. I emphasize conceptual understanding first and manual calculations second; it is often more important to understand how to approach a given problem (after which the calculations are often routine

## Great and thorough Teacher! Very Patient!

Discrete Math: Explained each method and topic in easily digestible ways. Guided me without just giving me the answer allowing me to learn. Sent me extra material after the lesson to expand on the topics he brought up. Great overall experience!
