About Christian


Bio

Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing (NLP) are incredibly useful skills. With them I have improved Amazon’s Alexa personal assistant; automated the learning of words' internal structure; and bootstrapped automatic speech recognition systems in multiple languages. Let me help you master machine learning so that you too can accomplish amazing things.

Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing (NLP) are incredibly useful skills. With them I have improved Amazon’s Alexa personal assistant; automated the learning of words' internal structure; and bootstrapped automatic speech recognition systems in multiple languages. Let me help you master machine learning so that you too can accomplish amazing things.

A Top 10% tutor on Wyzant in 2020, during my 200+ hours of tutoring I have:

- Helped students successfully complete machine learning courses;
- Coached professionals through a career change from software engineer to machine learning engineer; and
- Taught and reviewed a wide range of topics in artificial intelligence and computer science.

I have 10 years of industry experience working as a Machine Learning Scientist specializing in Natural Language Processing and Speech Recognition. Five of those years I worked at Amazon improving the Alexa personal assistant. During the 2000’s I was a graduate student at Carnegie Mellon University and a postdoc at Oregon Health & Science University working in Natural Language Processing. For my Ph.D. thesis I designed a machine learning algorithm that automatically learns the morphological structure of words in any language. I completed my Bachelor’s in Computer Science, with minors in Math and Physics, from Brigham Young University in 2000.

While the technical aspects of the algorithms I developed in academia and industry are interesting, I enjoy teaching these skills to others at least as much as practicing them myself. Whether you need to internalize the fundamentals of machine learning, improve your understanding of computer science for a class at school, or prepare for an industry interview, please consider me as your tutor and coach.

C#

Using C# and Unity, I built and deployed a 3D video game for Android and iOS. During game development, I wrote extensive C# code to customize the physics of a platform jumper. I have a bachelors in Computer Science and a Ph.D. in Computational Linguistics, a specialized sub-field of Computer Science. I have also worked as a Machine Learning Scientist, including 5 years at Amazon where I wrote and maintained code in Python, Java, C/C++, and Bash.

Using Unity, Blender, and Gimp, I have designed, built, and deployed a non-trivial 3D mobile game to the Android and iOS stores. I have first-hand knowledge of Unity's C# scripting interface, animation engine, particle systems, and audio systems, as well as 3D modeling in Blender, and image processing (for textures) in GIMP. I'd love to help you build your next game!

You get what you pay for!

REALLY knows his stuff with regards to NLP but also an amazing tutor!! I leave session learning more than I learn in class. Very kind, reliable, smart and patient. Would HIGHLY recommend.

Bethany, 18 lessons with Christian

Easy going and very knowledgeable

Christian is calm, thorough and very knowledgeable. It's very easy to bombard him with questions, he explains everything methodically, giving you the big picture. Exactly what I need as I'm embarking on a journey to transition my career into data science.

Foad, 2 lessons with Christian

Highly knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Christian is a great tutor! I cannot recommend him enough if you need help with Python and/or machine learning. He is highly knowledgeable and is very skilled at imparting information in a clear, concise manner. He not only helped me craft machine learning-oriented code in Python but also made sure I understood what the code was doing and how it related to the underlying theory. I feel very inspired by what I learned and now want to continue studies in data science and machine learning. Thank you, Christian!

Worth Every Penny!

Christian was super knowledgeable and a patient teacher. He was encouraging when needed and understands how to help you learn. He knew at times where to help me just grind through it, and also when to step away and give more context and theory to the ML process. A great tutor and great guy.

JOHN, 14 lessons with Christian

Wide range of knowledge!

I hired Christian to help me with one of my deep learning projects. He was absolutely great at taking difficult concepts and explaining them through simpler concepts. I even asked him for help on more difficult subjects like my grad level AI class!

Umair, 3 lessons with Christian

Knowledgeable and patient tutor!

He was very knowledgeable about algorithms and graph algorithms specifically. I would definitely recommend him if you're struggling with these concepts. He's also a very patient tutor.

Samantha, 7 lessons with Christian

Brilliant, knowledgeable and enthusiastic

He tough me about the EM algorithm and asked to review the slides beforehand so as to be prepared, and very prepared he was, knowing exactly what my professor meant even thought the slides were a mess. He has a lot of experience and knows all the concepts and definitions thoroughly like a,b,c. Very patient as well and you can see that his goal is for you to understand and not just explain, by that he lets me ask questions and waits for me to understand before proceeding.

Shalev, 1 lesson with Christian

Great help for math and beyond!

Christian helped me prepare for algorithms quiz by drilling me on log rules and equivalencies. Even though he hadn’t looked at the specific algorithms in years, he was still able to help tremendously with the math component and brainstorm on Big O notation problems.

Kendall, 4 lessons with Christian

Knowledgeable, patient and reliable tutor.

Christian is very knowledgeable in Computer Science. He helped my son resolve issues he was having setting up his project on Google colab. He is very patient and reliable.

Louise, 7 lessons with Christian

Knowledgeable and explains material well!!!

Christian is a strong communicator and makes sure you understand the underlying reasoning for what you're doing. He is very knowledgeable with a wide range of math and computer science skills,
