Tutor Experience

I have been tutoring various Economics/Finance/Mathematics/Statistics courses at many levels since 2006. I am also very proficient in R and MATLAB, as I often use them for my research projects. I have been living in Houston since 2006 when I started my PhD studies at Rice University. I initially tutored many Rice undergraduate students, helped them mainly with Calculus and Economics courses. I also tutored middle and high school students, helped them mainly with math classes. Lately, I have been helping MBA students to be successful in their Economics, Statistics and Analytics classes that also involve extensive use of R. Teaching is a passion for me, therefore I continue tutoring along with teaching at the university.
