About Dayton

I just graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with my Master's Degree in Environmental Engineering. At UC Berkeley I taught an upper division and graduate level course in the Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering called Climate Change Mitigation. This course focused on an engineering approach to reducing the negative effects associated with global climate change. My courses at Berkeley were primarily in math (linear algebra, diff. equations, etc.), science (biology, physics, chemistry), and engineering (fluid mechanics, hydrology, water treatment, etc.)

I'm currently working full time for the Army Corps of Engineers in Concord, MA, but am available to tutor in the evenings or on the weekends. My teaching style is generally to supply the theory behind a topic, then show some example problems. Although I'm happy to alter that style as needed.

I've done exceeding well in school at calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, and statistics.

Science and engineering are my favorite (the coolest!) subjects. Learning to take a scientific principle and apply it in an engineering project is the bread and butter of what I do.

I'm very experienced in MATLAB, having coded lots of algorithms and functions for for engineering projects.

Please contact me with any questions you have about particular subjects, and hopefully we can do our best to make sure you succeed in your academic endeavors.

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.

Civil Engineering

I have a Master's of Science degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley. I've also taught at the graduate level in Civil and Environmental Engineering. My focus has been in fluid mechanics and subsurface contaminant transport.

Differential Equations

I received an A in my differential equations course at UC Berkeley 2 years ago. I also use differential equations in all my environmental engineering courses. I program differential equations in MATLAB for my work at the Army Corps of Engineers.

MATLAB

I've taken formal MATLAB courses at UC Berkeley in my graduate program in Environmental Engineering. I use MATLAB for research (recursive functions, numerical solutions to differential equations). I also use MATLAB at my job for the Army Corps of Engineers.

R

I've programmed in R extensively in my graduate courses at UC Berkeley. I've also used R for research in temperature fluctuations of tidal rivers that I did with the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. I currently use R in my work at the Army Corps of Engineers.

Great tutor

Dayton tutored my son in the computer language MATLAB, he is a knowledgeable and patient tutor. I would definitely recommend Dayton.
