I have 10 years of math tutoring experience, which have helped my students achieve top scores on standardized exams. I stress understanding over memorizing formulas to ensure my students can appreciate/enjoy math and apply it to any quantitative career (engineering/data analytics/research). I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My rates is for a one-off session, so it is extremely negotiable if we work together regularly.
About Bill L.

I have always been a self-studier my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have. However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. Or maybe the teacher/professor is not the best at teaching a subject. This is where I can help. My lessons are never generic, and caters exactly to my students' needs and goals. I value the importance of understanding, rather than memorization. P.S. I am a quant analyst in the competitive high frequency trading industry, doing research and programming algorithmic trading strategies to buy and sell stocks/options, using math and statistics, and developing low latency platforms using programming. So I really appreciate the real usefulness of academics in the real world. I am also very open about what I do, so feel free to ask me anything about it!
