My experience includes tutoring high school, college level and graduate students for over 10 years as a university teaching assistant, lecturer and private tutor. My expertise covers all areas of Mathematics from high school through college, as well as for selected graduate level courses. My approach emphasizes confidence building and mastery of material as opposed to memorization of facts.

I will accept committed and conscientious students only. A 1-1.5 hour session once a week usually works best in terms of concentration levels and productivity. Contact me for details, and best of luck!

C++

I programmed in C++ commercially in the financial industry for 5+ years. My projects included object-oriented design with polymorphism and multiple inheritance. My areas of expertise include development of financial and engineering applications (time series analysis, predictive analytics, risk management and trading algorithms).
Computer Science,

Computer Science

I have over 25 years of software design and development experience in a wide variety of programming languages, including FORTRAN (my Ph.D. thesis), C/C++/C# (my quantitative finance, risk management and performance analysis work), Perl (my quantitative library for a hedge fund), Excel VBA (prototyping for trading, insurance and healthcare), programming environments, including MATLAB (data visualization and analysis for my thesis) and R (predictive analytics and time series analysis for high frequency trading and healthcare), and database management languages, including Sybase (finance), SQL Server (finance, healthcare and insurance) and Oracle (healthcare). Throughout my career I have followed the principles of object-oriented design and functional programming. Many student requests coming in through the computer science vertical are indeed programming and software design issues that I encounter in my everyday work practice.

SQL

In my software development career spanning over two decades, I have worked with almost all languages suitable for scientific programming and mathematical modeling, including SQL. My Ph.D. thesis code was written in FORTRAN on UNIX with MATLAB and database development was done in MS SQL. In my software development career, I made the best effort to follow object-oriented design principles (including functional programming) and make sure that my code was well tested, readable, maintainable and efficient.

Great Tutor

Focuses on task in hand and goes deep explaining the concepts so my son knows why a formula is used and how they came up with the formula.
