About Dov

I am a semi-retired computer software developer, an avid mathematician and physicist. I published one programming book and numerous articles, presented in conferences and mentored many colleagues. I also tutored students - mostly my own daughter and the children of friends.

I have a deep understanding of Math, the sciences and how they are connected. I will show you how what you learn is applied in the real world, and how to apply it to solve real world problems. The most important benefit will be that through deeper understanding - rather than just mechanical learning - you will be able to continue and grow on your own.

I am a statistician and computer scientist. Unlike popular thought, computer science is very closely related to applied mathematics. Numerical analysis is actually a branch of calculus, and programming languages incorporate algebra, calculus and logic. Computer graphics require a deep understanding of geometry. I have mentored and tutored colleagues as well as students in all these subjects

I will use your current course as a basis. We will learn the deeper reasons for the subject matter and a step-by-step approach to problem solving. I will use puzzles and mathematical "magic" to make it fun. I will show you how all that you learn - all the other subject, yes even language - are connected to Mathematics. I will show you that you CAN do Math and do it WELL.
