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...

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!

Great teacher!!
Douglas is an amazing teacher and I recommend asking for his help!!!! I told him I needed him on Monday morning and I had an appointment scheduled for Tuesday afternoon! I thought the assignment I needed help on was going to take multiple sessions but Douglas helped me understand it in one hour and a half lesson!!! And I got 100% on my assignment, which I could have never achieved without his help and understanding!! If you need the help, Douglas is DEFINITELY worth it!!

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor
Douglas was very patient and able to break down basic concepts of decision theory. I did not have a background in statistics and he was able to explain it and relate it to the real world.

A genius who knew infinity
First and foremost, Douglas is a very smart, talented guy, and a genius from my perspective. He can solve all types of tough problems in college level applied math and engineering math and even capable of extending this ability to graduate level. I had many tutors in Wyzant but almost none of them can answer all my problems in a sufficient level. Douglas is the first guy who can do so. Secondly, he knows how to teach! he can approach the problems in a way that students can understand with their limited knowledge base. Lastly, he is very focus and responsible during the session that makes u feel every minute worth the penny you u paid.

I learned how to use Excel to create and solve word linear programming problems. He made it super simple and has extensive knowledge in the area, this was evident in his tutoring session.
