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...

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!

Great tutor
Pity my son could not continue with Doug due to school constraints. I guess he'll just have to study on his own and get his 50 pts that he needs on the SATs on Saturday

Navigate your way into machine learning
Douglas can help you figure out what you need to know specifically for machine learning in regards to your mathematics background. He will be key to my next 7 months of training in a machine learning course, by providing tutoring when needed and making sure my efforts are focused in the math subjects that are most relevant to machine learning.
