"Hi, I'm Owen!

I graduated summa cum laude with a B.S.E. in Computer Science from the University of Michigan and currently work in Chicago as a software developer at a proprietary trading firm.

Throughout the past 8 years, I have tutored students across many STEM subjects including Computer Science, Statistics, Math, Physics, Chemistry, and more. I also served as an Instructional Aide at UM for EECS 482 (Introduction to Operating Systems) where I led classroom discussions and worked 1-on-1 with students during office hours. In my teaching philosophy, I always emphasize developing a solid understanding of the underlying concepts instead of encouraging rote memorization or problem recognition, which has helped students significantly improve their grasp of the subjects we work on beyond just completing school assignments.

At work, I work on a team of talented developers who improve and maintain our high-frequency automated trading systems, and have had the fortune of learning from my colleagues. Outside of work, I also frequently spend free time embarking on personal and open-source projects that pique my interest. All of these experiences influence my teaching greatly and have given me a lot of insight into the important aspects of development and design that (unfortunately) just aren't emphasized enough in school.

Finally, I've loved teaching for as long as I can remember! I hope you'll see that, as I do my best to help you improve a skill, learn a new concept, or brush up on forgotten fundamentals, you also give me the opportunity to pursue my passion.

I look forward to meeting you!
