Bachelor of Applied Science in Computer Engineering and Bioengineering at the University of Toronto, GPA 4.0
My thesis was on real-time classification of signals obtained from brain-computer interfaces using near-infrared spectroscopy.
ExperienceI am a math, science, and computer tutor based out of New York City.
I completed my masters in biomedical engineering and ECE (electrical and computer engineering) in 2011, with a specialization in neural engineering, machine learning, and brain computer interfaces. Since then I have worked as a data scientist and software engineer at 2 of the "big four" technology companies, an ad tech (online advertising) startup, and digital media/news. I recently left the industry to pursue teaching/tutoring and contracting full-time.
Some skills I use almost everyday: software engineering (using languages like C++, Java, Python, and Ruby on Rails), multivariate calculus, advanced statistics, machine learning, physics, signal processing, and databases (like MySQL, MongoDB, etc.)
I began tutoring as a volunteer when I was in high school for middle school students struggling in math. As an undergraduate and graduate student, I discovered that I love to teach as much as I love to learn. Helping others understand something reinforced my own understanding of the material. I am still able to teach and solve problems in university physics even though it was a course I took 10 years ago.
My goal is to help my students succeed, especially in difficult technical subjects such as math, science, and programming, where instructor ability and commitment is often lacking. I consider it an accomplishment if my students have accomplished what they set out to achieve.
I am very flexible with time and often provide extra over time without charge. I prefer to tutor in public places and to meet my students around halfway in distance (usually that means somewhere in Manhattan south of midtown).
Here is a testimonial from a previous student:
You helped me with grade. 12 math tutoring back in 2005. The difficulties I had in math were a little bit of everything from algebraic equations, problem solving questions. I have tried several tutors and did not have any success and still did not understand the material that I had to know. The way the other tutors taught me wasn’t making much sense so therefore I moved on and decided to contact you for help. After a few hours of your tutoring session you had a different way of explaining the math problems and finally made it clear for me to understand what i needed to know. I found your tutoring gave me confidence and i was finally understanding math and your patience and support really helped. At that time I was borderline failing my class and your tutoring helped me achieve the marks I needed to pass my tests and even my teacher seen an improvement and was happy to see that. The tutoring helped me reach my goals by helping me graduate high school and gave me the opportunity to continue into my further studies and now am planning to apply for the police force in the near future. I do really appreciate all your help and it finally made me realize that everyone has there own pace and way of learning and not to give up because with enough hard work and the proper help and guidance from people who know what they are doing you will go a long way.
