About Michael


Bio

I have a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota with a major in statistics and a minor in mathematics.

I am more interested in helping students who want to understand than those who want to compete for test scores and grades.

I have taught mathematics and statistics at nine universities in four states, ranging from M.I.T. (as a Lecturer in Applied Mathematics with a temporary appointment) to two open-admissions universities and including the University of Minnesota as an adjunct some years...

I have a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota with a major in statistics and a minor in mathematics.

I am more interested in helping students who want to understand than those who want to compete for test scores and grades.

I have taught mathematics and statistics at nine universities in four states, ranging from M.I.T. (as a Lecturer in Applied Mathematics with a temporary appointment) to two open-admissions universities and including the University of Minnesota as an adjunct some years after getting my degree there.

I have tutored hundreds of students in mathematics and statistics ranging from high-school algebra to advanced calculus. Courses have included elementary algebra, trigonometry, geometry, calculus at first- and second-year and advanced levels, abstract algebra, introductory number theory, and other subjects.

Probably more than half the students I have tutored have been taking first-year calculus.

Statistics

I have a Ph.D. in statistics and have taught various sorts of probability and statistics courses, including introductory courses requiring very little mathematics, courses relying on algebra or calculus, theory of statistics courses, a course on applications of linear algebra to statistics, and courses in which software is used to analyze data.

Calculus,

Calculus

I have taught first-year calculus, second-year calculus (multivariable calculus, etc.), and advanced calculus at several universities. Unlike most who have done that, I have tutored hundreds of students in those courses.
Physics,

Physics

My instruction of students in physics has occurred in two settings: (1) dealing with applications of mathematics to physics while teaching mathematics or doing one-to-one tutoring of students in mathematics; and (2) tutoring some students in physics courses. The first of these has ranged from explaining high-school-level physics problems to explaining how principles of physics lead to differential equations whose solutions are Bessel functions (that last in an advanced calculus course for graduate students in engineering).

Biostatistics,

Biostatistics

In the course of earning a Ph.D. in statistics I took a variety of graduate-level applied statistics courses that covered techniques used in biostatistics among other things. Since then I have done some work in collaboration with a medical doctor on statistics relevant to data arising in genetics. The biostatistics courses for which students most often seek tutoring cover material I have taught at several universities.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

About half of a course I once taught titled "advanced calculus for engineers" treated differential equations. My other work with students on differential equations is in tutoring in second-year calculus courses and teaching discussion sections in such courses.
Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

I have taught a discrete mathematics course requiring first-semester calculus as a prerequisite and that was required as a prerequisite for computer science. I have taken an interest in combinatorics that includes some years of regular attendance at combinatorics seminars and have published one paper in a combinatorics journal. Among topics that I report as "discrete mathematics" when tutoring via Wyzant are first-year abstract algebra (groups, rings, fields, homomorphisms) elementary number theory, combinatorics, and the discrete math topics that are conventionally required of computer science majors.
Finite Math,

Finite Math

I have taught finite math courses including material on Markov chains, the simplex algorithm in linear programming, dual problems in linear programming, some basic probability, and other topics.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I have taught two different sorts of linear algebra courses: a standard introductory course and a course on applications of linear algebra to statistics. I have tutored dozens students in linear algebra (matrices, linear transformations, linear independence, rank, nullity, Gaussian elimination, determinants, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, applications to systems of linear differential equations, etc.). I have taken graduate courses on applications of linear algebra to statistics, including including a linear statistical models, Wishart distributions, statistical uses of singular value decompositions, etc.
Logic,

Logic

I have a Ph.D. with a minor in mathematics and a major in statistics, having switched degree programs from mathematics to statistics. While a graduate student in mathematics, I took a number of mathematical logic courses. I have taught far more elementary things in logic in a discrete mathematics course I taught, and with some of the hundreds of students I have tutored I have done tutoring in elementary logic.

Excellent and Patient Tutor

Mr. Michael is an excellent tutor with great knowledge and an understanding for higher level math courses. He is extremely patient and thorough with his explanations. I am currently taking a college level Advanced Linear and Complex Variables course which naturally covers many tough topics. I was very confused and lost at first. But, after having a few sessions with Mr. Michael, I am more confident with my ability to solve questions in this course and am understanding the course's hard concepts much better. I recommend Mr. Michael to any student who is looking to understand a concept better and to improve as a student.

Lillian, 13 lessons with Michael

Efficient and knowledgable

Went over some Probability problems which Michael only needed to look at for a few seconds and then would start to talk me through it. Will definitely use Michael again if I get stuck.

Knowledgeable and Helpful!

Michael helped me in calculus, probability and statistics. He is well-informative in variety of math subjects. He solved problems promptly and walked me through it step-by-step. I highly recommend him!

Tzu-Chun, 3 lessons with Michael

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Mr. Michael taught me step-by-step how to solve different statistical scenarios. He was kind and patient at each step. I would recommend him to friends and family. Highly recommended.

Linear regression

Michael helped me with understanding how to interpret scatterplots and regression lines. I enjoyed my lesson and will schedule an appointment if there are any other statistical concepts in which I may be struggling.

Knowledgeable in Statistics

Dr. Hardy is well-versed in statistics and responds quickly to each problem I have struggled with. With Dr. Hardy, I always accomplish my tutoring goals and he has been a tremendous help in a class that is not my academic strength.

For Abstract Algebra

Dr. H is simply amazing. He started with examples and generalized to theorem. This approach is lot more friendly than the ways some other tutor that I have encountered do. Highly recommend him!!

Informative and patient!

Michael was helpful in explaining the material that I provided for review. I included homework assignments and class presentations to go over and Michael navigated the information well.

Great tutor

Michael went through each problem and moved on once I understood after he explained in detail. He even took the time to re-explain. That made me feel more confident and complete the assignment.

John, 17 lessons with Michael

Great tutor

Michael really helped me understand the proofs for my probability and statistics class. Also I really like how he used LaTeX so all of the notation was easy to read and understand. I definitely feel more well prepared and less stressed!
