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...

Best Tutor out there
I hesitate to write this review because Doug is already busy enough and if more people use him it will be hard for me to get on schedule. However I have to give credit where credit is due. Doug is very patient, very smart and very hard working. He explains things so that even the least knowledgeable student can understand. I have siblings in college and I have already told them they should reach out to Doug for help when they get to these kind of classes. Doug’s services are worth every penny and more.

Great Calc Tutor
My son continues to learn a lot from his time with Doug (multivariable calculus). Doug is able to find problems that help explain the big picture, which is really great for my son's learning style.

Impressive Tutor
Doug is extremely impressive. My son’s math course was entirely problem-based and very challenging, so much so that the problems sometimes stumped other tutors. Doug quickly assessed my son’s strengths and weaknesses. He made sure that my son thoroughly understood the concepts at the heart of each problem, so that my son was not only able to do the work at hand but knew how to approach new problems on his own. After a term working with Doug, my son is a much stronger and more confident and flexible math student. In addition, Doug always did his best to make himself available when my son needed him. We’re very grateful for his help and look forward to continuing to work with him.

Patient, knowledgeable
Douglas helped me go over some of my discrete mathematics homework and it was clear that he knew the topic well. He was patient with explaining what was necessary and used many great analogies.

Excellent demonstrational skills
Great help to brush up my skills. Was feeling a little stressed before my session with Doug. He was patient and explained things very well. Would definitely use Doug again. No more stress!

Simplifies Complicated Problems so They Can be Understood!
Douglas breaks down complicated stats problem so that they are easy to understand and attain for future reference. I am not great at excel, and for an MBA program, it is much needed. Douglas sat for an hour walking me through the process of finding the confidence interval within an excel spreadsheet, and greatly helped me with my difficult assignment. Douglas is the best!!

Will use again. Extremely helpful
Really liked how Douglas established a baseline to see what I knew so he could build from that. It brought out weaknesses that I didnt know I had which made understanding further concepts much easier. Most very intelligent people have difficulty in explaining concepts to someone just learning them as they think they should be common knowledge. But Douglas breaks things down in a very understandable way that anyone can understand which is a rare thing to find. Will use again for sure.

Great stats tutor!
I turned to Douglas when I was struggling keeping up with the material in my Stats class. As someone who has no prior background in Stats, it was very beneficial to talk out the concepts with him because my lectures are not recorded. He is very knowledgable and explains the concepts in a very straightforward matter. He is also super available and even met me during a snowstorm, which I am super grateful for! I'll be sure to book another session. :) Thank you Douglas!
