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.
