About Daniel

My experience includes tutoring high school, college level and graduate students for over 7 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!

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.

Actuarial Science

I worked at CNA Insurance for 1.5 years as a quantitative analyst and am familiar with actuarial reserving, survival analysis, annuities and risk assessment. In my current position, I apply statistical methods and machine learning techniques to healthcare applications of risk management and patient outcome analysis. I have tutor actuarial subjects online through Wyzant when they were requested through the math platform.

Algebra 2

I have a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics with 10+ yrs. of tutoring experience.

C#

I have developed back-end c# for scientific programming and data processing for the last 6 years. I am comfortable with object-oriented programming and lambda expressions, database interfaces and analytical libraries.

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).

Calculus

Ph.D. on Applied Math with 10+ years of tutoring experience

CFA

I held the CFA designation from 2003 to 2013 while working as a Quantitative Developer, VP - Quantitative Investment, Investment Analysis Consultant and High Frequency Quant. My specialties are Derivative Products, Risk Management and Reporting and Quantitative Analysis.

Differential Equations

I have a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics with both extensive coursework and TAship experience in ordinary and partial differential equations.

Discrete Math

I have a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics, so I can tutor pretty much all math up to and including sophomore year. For junior and senior years, I can do Applied Math courses (Vector Calculus, Numerical Methods, Differential and Integral Equations, Optimization).

Linear Algebra

I have a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics and can comfortably teach Linear Algebra at the undergraduate level.

Microsoft Excel

I have 15+ yrs. of experience with Microsoft Excel, including macros

R

I have over 6 years of experience solving the problems of mathematical finance, statistics, operations research and machine learning with R. I have written a suite of packages for solving machine learning problems in healthcare.

Series 7

I held the CFA Charterholder designation from 2003 to 2013. The CFA Body of Knowledge curriculum is substantially more comprehensive than that of Series 7.
