Tutor Information


* This is my one-off rate. Rates are negotiable for long term students! * I have 7+ years of industry experience and 10+ years of tutoring experience. I am proficient in C, C++, Python, and Java, and can help with math and data science courses. Even if you have very little experience with programming, it takes most of my students 3 to 6 sessions to get comfortable enough with a programming language so they can become independent. My lessons are never generic, and caters exactly to my students' specific needs and goals. I also value the importance of understanding, rather than memorization. Professionally full-time, I am a quant developer in the high frequency trading industry, where I develop trading strategies and maintain our proprietary trading systems. So, the subjects that I teach is not just theoretical, but what I use day to day. I have been on both sides of the interview table, so I can also help with technical interview preparation, and general career guidance. In addition, I am extremely passionate about trading, and can teach it or answer any questions about it for those who are interested. Let's meet for a free 15 minute session and see how I can help you with your goals and if you like my teaching style.
