Advanced Tutoring for Pure/Applied Mathematics for all levels of students in Math (includes Operations Research)


I have studied engineering and applied math (operations research and more advanced topics in math). In addition, I have TA'ed in operations research as well. I have also implemented many mathematical and statistical algorithms via computer programming as well.


I have tutored math for more than 10 years, and I have also tutored and taught many students over the years. From office hours and teaching various students, as well as independent and private tutoring. I have helped students achieve grades of A in many different math courses.
