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 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.

Very Knowledgeable!
I reached out to Daniel to assist me with understanding statistics and applying statistical analysis with R programming. He explained things in a way I could understand, and I felt very comfortable working with him. I would absolutely meet with him again if I need help.

Knowledgeable about statistics and probability
Daniel was sensitive to what I didn't understand and was able to help me understand the assumptions I was making that were in the way of my being able to solve the problems I was challenged by.

Knowledgable and Helpful
Daniel provided me with the proper knowledge for my R studio and statistics assignment. He was very helpful and thorough with his work. I will most definitely be using him again for R programming in the future. Thank you, Daniel!

Time well spent!
Daniel is an excellent tutor. He was able to teach me what I could not learn in class. I never would have passed my class without the tutoring provided by Daniel. Very smart and very easy to work with. Thank you Daniel!
