Experienced Tutor for Math, Statistics, and Computer Science
I was a graduate student in mathematics at Caltech and a postdoc at Columbia University. I left academia to work in industry, but I enjoy teaching. I have written dozens of articles and a book on applying mathematics for general audiences. I'm working on a parent's guide to algebra and book on applying economics to improve environmentalism. I've tutored mathematics, statistics, economics, computer science, and programming since 2013 on other sites.
My goal is to make the material make...

Douglas has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 2 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Knowledgeable and Easy to understand.
Douglas is a great tutor, easy to understand and in my experience I learned more with him than my actual professor. The way he explains things and goes over them is precise, yet very easy to understand. He is punctual and a joy to work with. Definitely recommend him.

Really great tutor
Douglas is very a capable tutor. He is also extremely patient and able to describe things in different ways, which helped greatly for me when something wasn't immediately clear.

Knowledgable, Patient and Prepared Tutor
Douglas has been working with me on machine learning algorithms for the past few weeks. I have really enjoyed our sessions together, he explains concepts thoroughly, uses visual representations when needed, and clearly has a deep understanding of the material. In addition, he reviews the material I send to him before our sessions, and has always been well-prepared.
Tyler, 13 lessons with Douglas
Expert in subject matter.
I caught up a lot in math/statistics while being tutored by Douglas. This is essential for a lot of machine learning/computer science subject matter. I would have struggled a lot more without his tutoring.

Tutoring on Discrete Math/Computer Algorithms
Douglas has the appropriate background in Discrete Math and knowledgeable in how to apply such to computer algorithms. Douglas is tutoring my son who is a EE/CS major at USC. He is helping my son understand the theory and mechanics.

Insightful and clear tutor that helps you understand the material really well
Working with Douglas on my assignment was a real pleasure. He covered highly complex material with great familiarity and progressed through it at a pace that felt both comfortable and efficient, providing necessary clarifications about what was being covered along the way. In addition to helping me resolve a lot of confusion on what was involved with my assignment, he also pointed me towards some additional resources that could help me take the lesson even further. Highly recommend working with Douglas on complex math problem sets.

Wonderful Learning Experience
Douglas is a wonderful teacher as well being extremely knowledgeable in the the academic and professional applications of applied mathematics. I needed help with singular value decomposition and I had a really wonderful time discussing both the theoretical or academic side of SVD, as well as the applications of it in the real world like in the Netflix Challenge. Would definitely recommend Douglas as a go to for any mathematics or Matlab tutoring.

Highly intelligent Teacher! A great human being!
Douglas is a wonderful and patient tutor, and very flexible to accommodate an emergency/last minute lesson! He explained me all Discrete Math concepts in detail.This has been invaluable for me and my studies. I strongly recommend him for math/CS related subjects. We will definitely be using Douglas for tutoring again. Thanks so much Douglas!
