Math Tutor Experienced in College-level Probability/Statistics
I started out tutoring for the SAT while still in high school and went on to tutor calculus and probability. Lately Probability and Statistics has been most of what I do. I love facilitating greater understanding with willing students. I'd love to learn what your needs are and how I can best serve you or recommend competent peers or materials.
I am comfortable online or in person. I typically meet over zoom and use the whiteboard feature to save and send the notes.
I have a BS in Mathematics...

Helpful with trigonometry
Daniel is an excellent tutor. When I was panicking over my trigonometry homework, or to be more specific, a problem that involved using a graphing calculator to approximate the solutions of an equation involving sine and cosine. I was blown away, and I didn’t know how to solve it. That is when Daniel stepped in and helped. Not only did he understand the material and help me out, but he also gave me a greater appreciation and understanding of trigonometry. For example, when we were discussing trigonometry, he explained to me where the unit circle comes from and discussed proofs for a few trigonometric identities. These insights brought an excitement and appreciation to trigonometry that I lacked prior to this. From the way that Daniel explained the material, I was able to tell that he has a great proficiency and understanding in higher level mathematics. I would definitely recommend Daniel to anyone who is looking for a great tutor who not only knows the material and could explain it, but who is also patient and cares about the student.

Great 'Big Picture' and 'Little Picture' Tutor
Probability and statistics are hard. I have long struggled with these topics. I’ve worked with many statisticians who are great navigating through the weeds. But Daniel is the first person who effortlessly cycles between the 30,000-foot view and the nitty gritty details on the ground. If I don’t have the context for why I’m doing what I’m doing, I get lost. Or if I’m not lost, I won’t remember why I did what I did. For instance, he recently helped me bridge the gap between the probability world and the statistics world. He first built the “big picture” contextual framework around the topics and terminology. He then developed, in real time, a small data set in Rstudio to demonstrate the probability world. We then “worked up” and linked it to a distribution in the statistics world. We learned that the normal distribution was not appropriate, thereby leading us to discuss other ones such as the binomial distribution. The online format works well because we can bounce across the white board, Rstudio, Wikipedia, video, etc.. It’s very convenient to share session notes and documents online. I am (finally!) reaching a deeper understanding of these topics with Daniel.

Fantastic!
He knows his stuff! What can I say that the other respondents haven't already said? He is definitely efficient. He does not lengthen sessions with unnecessary communications, which I tend to like. Comes to sessions well-prepared. When he needs to research something, he is adept at finding answers quickly. Is extremely effective with the whiteboard. I know this because I can return to his notes having forgotten information and remember instantly what we discussed from the notes.

Excellent tutor - very helpful in Data Science
Daniel is very talented and exceptionally smart regarding Tableau, Excel, and Statistics in general. He is very patient and responsive and has great hours and availability as some of the tutors I work with only want to tutor at night. I highly recommend Daniel, A+ and five stars.

Helpful teacher
Daniel helped me learn business calculus. Without him I would have done a whole lot worse in the class. He helped me understand the concepts and apply them. I like how he encourages me to do the best I can in the class. Daniel has helped me accomplish my business calculus class.

Ideal Stats Tutor!!!
It was extremely hard finding a tutor that was familiar with the concepts I was learning in my Statistics class, until Daniel reached out to me offering help. He uses active learning techniques so I was able to retain information much better from his sessions. He uses Zoom and his writing pad very effectively. He actually went through all of my material from the class with me and I gained a lot of clarity. Some concepts he helped me understand included: Law of Large Numbers, Central Limit Theorem, Maximum Likelihood Estimation, Method of Moments, Confidence Intervals, and Chi-Square Distributions. These were all challenging for me to grasp because of how theoretical the concepts were, but he made the problems much easier to navigate, and we worked through many difficult problems together.

Great Tutor!
Daniel is currently helping me with my upper-division Mathematical Statistics class. He is extremely knowledgeable in all things statistics, probability, and calculus. He has helped me understand many topics such as maximum likelihood estimation, method of moments, sufficient statistics, asymptotic distributions, almost sure convergence, convergence in probability, convergence in distribution, delta method, confidence intervals, and hypothesis testing. He always makes sure I understand the information and always answers any questions I have. The sessions are super easy to follow as Daniel utilizes the whiteboard feature on zoom with the help of his writing pad. This way he is able to upload the whiteboard pdfs into dropbox, as well as any other documents either of us wants to share with one another, allowing me to have quick and easy access to anything we have gone over in previous sessions.

Expert: Probability and Statistics using RStudio & Linear Algebra
I have been working with Daniel for several months now. He provides me with patient and knowledgeable assistance in understanding detailed Probability and Statistics problems using RStudio. As a new user to RStudio and LaTeX, I was given plenty of opportunity to learn and practice beginner through basic and advanced user skills. He took the time to explain data sets, data values, and what the functions and tests were doing behind the scenes at the level I needed to understand and interpret results. Some of the methods used included Student's T Test, Wilcoxon Signed Rank Test, Wilcoxon Rank Sum Test, Sign Test, Mann Whitney U Test, Fisher's Exact Test, and more. All graphical representations such as scatter plots, density plots, qq plots, and histograms were easily generated and explained to support analysis of data. Easily transitioned back and forth between Probability and Statistics using RStudio and Linear Algebra throughout this term. Quite a bit of time spent on transformations of matrices. This included basics of addition, multiplication, Reduced Row Echelon Form and through more complex methods such as Graham-Schmidt and SVD. He provided the support I needed to understand basis, subspace, vectors, eigenvalues and eigenvectors and how these relate to the matrices and/or how to find them. Thanks so much Daniel!!

Very articulate and well spoken tutor.
Daniel has lots of knowledge in the subject I am currently studying and does a really good job of taking complex problems and simplifying them. He is also very open to listening to my questions and spending lots of time on just one problem to make sure I understand every part of it.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.
Working on basics of ‘R’ coding. Daniel knows statistics and the software platform ‘R’ at a professional level and was patient and thorough in teaching the basics.
