## Engaging and supportive tutor

Sally Lynn, 2 lessons with RajTutored a college sophomore in Stats 1. I feel like my 3rd eye has opened. It makes so much more sense! Great tutor.

I am a high school math teacher at an independent school in NYC. Prior to that, I was a college professor at the University of Rochester. I love explaining things clearly, and seeing understanding blossom in a student.

To help a student understand something, the key is to make it concrete, relatable, and intuitive. If the explanation sounds clever, then it's no good.

My undergraduate degree was in mathematics and philosophy from Oxford University. I use machine learning (linear...

Computer Programming,
#### Computer Programming

I have a lot of experience in Matlab, and am in the process of transitioning to Python (using NumPy, SciPy, Matplotlib, and so on). I really like Matlab a lot, and it pains me to see that it is gradually becoming obsolete, but that's how things are going. If you are starting to learn a programming language now, then I highly recommend that you learn Python instead of Matlab, simply because Python is becoming much more widely used.
For some reason, my profile shows up when people search on Wyzant for Prolog. Although I did learn a bit of Prolog many years ago, I regret that I don't know enough to be able to tutor anyone in that.

Data Science,
#### Data Science

I use Matlab and Python (NumPy, Scikit-learn) to carry out computational and statistical analyses of human brain data (fMRI). I have also written tutorials in both languages on fMRI analysis, statistics and neural networks.

Statistics,
#### Statistics

I use statistics every day as part of my cognitive neuroscience research, including basic statistics (correlation, regression, t-tests, ANOVA, etc.) and also more complex multivariate stats (General Linear Model, principal components analysis (PCA), discriminant analysis, Gaussian Naive Bayes, various other classifier algorithms).

#### Elementary Math

I have 20+ years in math and scientific programming. Via my school-age son, I have recently gained a lot of experience in some wonderful interactive math-teaching software and websites, such as Desmos, Geogebra and Mathigon. I don't think that schools have started using these much yet, but they have great potential for helping a tutor to make math more tangible, interactive and engaging.

A major focus of my degree in Math & Philosophy from Oxford was their intersection, namely mathematical logic. This included propositional calculus, predicate calculus and its axiomatisations, modal logic and set theory. I also studied automated logical theorem proving using PROLOG.
