"I received a B.S.E. in Computer Science from the University of Michigan's College of Engineering and currently work as a software developer for a proprietary trading firm in Chicago. Throughout the past 7 years I have tutored many students in various computer, math, and science subjects, including Computer Science, Statistics, Mathematics from Algebra I to Calculus II, Physics, Chemistry, and more. I always emphasize understanding of the underlying concepts over memorization or simple problem recognition, and have helped most students significantly improve their grasp of the subjects we work in.
For University of Michigan students, I am specifically familiar with tutoring the courses listed below. If your course isn't on here or you're not sure about course equivalencies with the school you attend, simply ask and I'll let you know if I'm qualified to help you with your class!
EECS 183, 280, 281, 381, 482
ENGR 101, 151
STATS 250, 412
MATH 115, 116
For high school students, I have experience tutoring the following courses:
Math up through AP Calculus BC
Statistics up through AP Statistics
Computer Science up through AP Computer Science
I may not have official teaching certifications, but I am very confident in my qualifications to tutor and teach effectively in my subject areas. I graduated with a 3.86 GPA (summa cum laude) at Michigan after taking primarily upper level EECS classes. I also augmented my teaching experience by serving as an Instructional Aide for EECS 482 (Introduction to Operating Systems) in which I led discussion sections and held office hours. I've been tutoring ever since high school, where I maintained a 4.0 GPA while taking a heavy AP course load.
At work, I develop, maintain, and improve our high frequency automated trading systems. I work on a team of talented developers and have had the fortune of learning a lot from them and their experiences; I hope to take this and share as much of the knowledge with you as possible.
In addition to my experience in college and industry, I have wor" less...
