As an instructor in the department of math, University of Portland, I specialize in teaching statistics, as well as pre-calculus and calculus. I greatly enjoy working with students 1-on-1, and bring a life-long love of math to my tutoring. 25+ years of programming and engineering in the computer industry adds a solid practical approach to my tutoring.
I use R in my own machine learning and statistics research, and some of the results are taken to the classroom at the University of Portland for instruction.
