My education and professional experience
I have two and a half years of experience tutoring topics in mathematics and statistics to high school students. Over the past year I have also served as a mentor and community TA in MOOCs on both Coursera and edX, assisting learners in freshman level computer science and statistics courses. At college I made use of python in my physics classes to run simulations and analyze experimental data. Today I often write python scripts to automate tasks in open source intelligence collection.
