I have taken two collegiate probability/statistics courses, each of which are continuations of a standard AP Statistics course, which I took in high school and received a 5 on the corresponding AP exam. I also worked with statistical modeling during the summer of 2011 at IBM for functional defect analysis of semiconductor technologies. My PhD. in Michigan will be in the field of statistical signal processing. If you are a masters, bachelors, or high school student in the greater Ann Arbor area seeking tutoring in mathematics or physics, look no further, because I'm your guy! My name is Gopal, [more]

I am a University of Michigan graduate and an aspiring scholar, teacher, and mentor. Since becoming a graduate, I have been very active as a tutor of mathematics; I have successfully helped hundreds of students in classes like calculus, precalculus, trigonometry, probability and statistics, algebra, geometry, differential equations, linear algebra, and other mathematics classes. My approach to tutoring mathematics primarily involves guiding the students through a series of practice questio... [more]

My approach to tutoring is to first determine where weaknesses in understanding exist, then to find ways to strengthen the student in those areas. Learning styles vary among students, so whenever possible, I try to match my tutoring methods to each student's strongest learning style. For example, one student may learn best by rote memorization and repetition drills. Another may thrive with analogies and mnemonics. A third student may need derivations from first principles or real life applica... [more]

My coursework was in the statistics course taught by the math department, but I have tutored students taking Business Statistics as well. At Grand Rapids Community College, I worked in the Business Tutorial Lab and as an appointment-based tutor for five students struggling with their Statistics class. I have also tutored students from Grand Valley, Davenport, MSU, University of Michigan, and EMU in this subject. In terms of software, I am most familiar with the intricacies of Texas Instruments and Excel, but I have also used Minitab in the past. [more]

I graduated high school as the second in my class of 620 students, and was named Math Department Student of the Year. I now study mathematics as an Undergraduate student of the University of Michigan, where I am a member of the LSA Honors College pursuing a degree in Honors Mathematics. I love examining the interconnectedness of math across all disciplines, which has given me a depth of understanding in each area of mathematics. I look forward to sharing that depth with my pupils. I have exc... [more]

Statistics is a subject that I have a particular interest in tutoring because I've found that while students with a vast array of interests need to know it, most students are focused on trying to complete practice/homework problems without understanding the fundamental principles in stats. For example, in hypothesis testing, it's useful to memorize the formula for calculating a p-value, but what does this value intuitively mean and why is it useful? I've found that once students understand these principles, they end up with a much better grasp on solving problems and the subject as a whole. A [more]
