University of California, Berkeley (Astronomy, Stats)
My name is Quentin and I am a graduate of University of California, Berkeley with two degrees in Astrophysics and Statistics. Professors often expected their students to work together and designed their coursework accordingly. From them, I learned that working with people is practically essential to understand new material and is a lesson I wish to pass on.
As can be discerned from my majors, I am particularly experienced in technical courses such as math, physics and statistics. When I am teaching someone, I try to ask them questions that will lead to the answer instead of simply giving them the correct formulae. I also think it is important to understand the physical purpose behind the question and not just to find the answer. If the person or I feel that a person's coursework is not very thoughtful or just rote memory work, then I would be happy to provide my own problems that will better teach a student.
I look forward to hearing from and working with you on your studies! My name is Quentin and I am a graduate of University of California, Berkeley with two degrees in Astrophysics and Statistics.

Quentin explained difficult statistical concepts in simple, understandable terms. He was well-prepared for the lesson and really helped me understand the material.
He helped me review for my Actuary one exam. I am now much more confident going in to the exam.
Quentin is working with my son on statistics. My son is really happy after his 1st session with Quentin, and he is waiting to meet with Quentin for the next session!
Quentin was extremely helpful! He was patient and helped me read between the lines when trying to solve Stats problems. Statistics often has big words problems that make the problem seem more complicated than they really are, and Quentin was able to help break it down into an easier and more manageable problem for me. Much easier to understand and learn that way!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I am soon to receive degrees in astrophysics and statistics from UC Berkeley. I worked as an undergraduate researcher in Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. I worked on several physics projects and reports throughout my academic career.
I have a B.A. in Astrophysics and B.A. in Statistics from UC Berkeley. I used a plethora of mathematical ideas and tools in coursework.
I frequently review math notes from the past to use on current projects.
I used a lot of Python in my last two years of undergraduate studies. A lot of experimental physics today requires computers and programming to do any sort of testing, so I had pick it up in my lab courses as well as my research. Python was the preferred language for my classes because we mostly only needed it to handle linear algebra operations and calculations with large data sets. I believe that my experience of learning a programming language on my own could really help other struggling students.
I received a B.A. in Statistics from UC Berkeley.
I enrolled in many probability theory and statistical application courses. I used R and Python in a variety of projects and experiments.
