Steven Cushing is a superb tutor. He is not only quite knowledgeable about the science of statistics, but he is also quite effective at explaining the statistical implications in layman's terms. In short, he is an excellent teacher who makes the subjects of statistical research comprehensible to anyone. He is highly recommended!
My daughter enjoyed working with Steven very much. She had tried other tutors but did not feel they had a good grasp of the subject and also did not like their methods of explanation. She felt Steven did a great job explaining the concepts and had a great knowledge of College Algebra. Thank you Steven!
Steven clarifies Calculus problems that I had much trouble with.
The first quiz I took after my lesson was a grade of 90.
Steven was very low key and astute in picking up areas that need addressing. He immediately started working on skills and was prompt and respectful of schedules! We look forward to our next session.
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.
I have taught differential equations at several local colleges, both as a self-contained course and as a unit in other courses, such as Applied Mathematics. I have also used it extensively in my research and consulting work.
I have a degree in mathematics from MIT and a doctorate in linguistics from UCLA. I have taught discrete math at Boston University and at several smaller local colleges. I have also used aspects of discrete math in my research and consulting work in computational linguistics, natural language processing, and artificial intelligence.
I have a doctorate in linguistics from UCLA and have published dozens of research articles about language, including several in Verbatim, the language quarterly. My book, "Fatal Words: Communication Clashes and Aircraft Crashes," examines the potentially disastrous consequences of even minor errors in grammar and vocabulary.
I have taught linear algebra at several local colleges, both as a self-contained course and as a unit in other courses, such as Applied Mathematics. I have also used it extensively in my research and consulting work.
I have taught logic at several local colleges and universities. At Northeastern University, I taught it in both the Philosophy Department and the Computer Science Department, with the different emphases required for the very different audiences. My dissertation involved the use of formal logic to clarify subtle issues of linguistic semantics. My published research also involves the use of formal logic in artificial intelligence and natural language processing.
I have taught statistics at several local colleges. I have also used it extensively in my research and consulting work.
I began playing violin when I was nine years old and viola when I was fourteen. I also play the fidola (five-string viola). Over the years I have played in several local community orchestras, as well as in contra dance and country dance bands. I teach beginners the rudiments of violin playing and more accomplished players the fine points of the various traditional fiddle styles.
