Hi, I'm Michael W.

For years I have successfully tutored and mentored students from basic skills to high level enrichment, in mathematics, statistics, and computer science.

My students are in: High school through college

My specialties are: 

  • AP Computer Science
  • Stats courses (High school through college, including AP Stats)
  • SAT Math 2 Subject Tests
  • CSET Mathematics Subtests

What I do

I effectively tackle two of the greatest impediments to optimal learning — boredom and fear — by creating excitement, and by encouraging playfulness and confidence in my students. Drawing on my broad and deep educational and career experience, I find practical examples of interest to them, such as sports statistics, finance, or handwriting recognition.

Math and CS touch almost everything.  My students see diverse applications from cryptography to computer-driven classification to performance analysis and experimental design. With me, they discover the rich interplay among topics they know, and related new and exciting topics.

Former principal cryptographic engineer and R&D scientist who contributed to patents for cutting edge software applications

Cryptographic Engineer

Un-crackable safeguards are unsolvable math puzzles we have to design; our digital lives depend on this
