[…professional mathematics and statistics tutor?]
Yes! I’ve tutored in both collegiate and private settings since 2004.
Why, yes, for I:
- am a computer engineer,
- have a Master of Engineering degree in electrical engineering and a baccalaureate degree in electronics and engineering technology,
- am an active member of the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (better known as the IEEE),
- and freakin’ love mathematics and statistics – areas where engineering thrives!
Although I’m affiliated with several organizations, my work is independent of all of them; I conduct my research out of personal interest.
[…a concourse of research?]
con·course \ˈkän-ˌkȯrs, ˈkäŋ-\1: an act or process of coming together and merging
