Princeton '13 Math & Computer Science Tutor

I grew up in Manhattan and went to P.S. 6 for elementary school and the Brearley School for middle and high school. I graduated from Princeton with a B.A. in Mathematics in 2013, and then worked at Morgan Stanley as a mortgage-backed securities trader for eighteen months. I?m currently self-employed as a private tutor specializing in math, computer science, and economics. In the past year I've worked with a seventh grader prepping for the SSHS exam; ninth graders adjusting to high school a... [more]

Discrete Math

I have experience tutoring students in discrete mathematics topics such as probability, set theory, cardinality, orderings, relations, functions, combinatorics, counting techniques, recurrence, number theory, logic, and applications of matrices. I am comfortable explaining abstract mathematical concepts in simple and clear ways and can help with problem sets requiring discrete math techniques.


Differential Equations

I was a math major at Princeton and had a 3.8 GPA. I took a Differential Equations class at Princeton and received an A in it.


Econometrics

I have experience tutoring students in econometrics topics such as probability, Central Limit Theorem, regression, inference, heteroscedasticity, panel data, instrumental variables, and Maximum Likelihood. I am comfortable explaining abstract mathematical concepts in simple and clear ways and can help with problem sets requiring Econometrics techniques.


Linear Algebra

I have experience tutoring students in linear algebra topics such as vector spaces, dimensionality, matrices, determinants, linear transformations, systems of equations, eigenvectors and eigenvalues, Gram-Schmidt, orthogonal bases and projections, and SVD. I am comfortable explaining abstract mathematical concepts in simple and clear ways and can help with linear algebra problem sets. I was a math major at Princeton and had a 3.8 GPA. I took a Linear Algebra class at Princeton and received an A in it.


Logic

I have experience tutoring students in logic topics such as truth functions and tables, boolean algebra, formal proofs, proof by induction and transfinite induction, indirect proofs and proof by contradiction, cardinality, orderings, and ordinal numbers. I am comfortable explaining abstract mathematical concepts in simple and clear ways and can help with logic problem sets. I was a math major at Princeton and had a 3.8 GPA. I took both Intro to Logic and Advanced Logic at Princeton and received an A in each class.


Python

I'm proficient in Python, NumPy, and pandas, and am happy to help with projects or problem sets.


Finite Math

I have experience tutoring students in finite mathematics topics such as probability, combinatorics and counting techniques, logic, and applications of matrices. I am comfortable explaining abstract mathematical concepts in simple and clear ways and can help with problem sets requiring finite math techniques.
