Information about Warren - Melton tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Warren:
I am a postdoctoral researcher in mathematics at the University of Edinburgh. I have ten years of experience implementing and devising models – using either or a combination of optimisation, Monte Carlo simulation, statistical and algorithmic techniques – in both academic and business workplaces.
I have a PhD in Operations Research from VU University Amsterdam following an honours Science degree majoring in mathematics from the University of Melbourne. I obtained a high distinction average score and was awarded the prize for the best 4th-year score in Statistics.
I have written seven peer-reviewed articles in Monte Carlo simulation methodology, including a journal article in Mathematics of Operations Research.
My postgraduate academic career has been in Europe, living in the Netherlands, Germany and Scotland for almost nine years. I had a 2.5-year postdoctoral posting at RWTH Aachen University. I enjoyed visiting charming cities and towns and saw some beautiful nature.
As a part of my academic career, I have taught students from multiple nationalities and levels of ability, from first-year business students to master-level mathematicians.
I have designed and lectured a semester-long masters-level subject in Monte Carlo simulation as an optional subject at RWTH Aachen University. The subject covered probability and simulation essentials, variance reduction and output verification techniques. The student's also learnt an introductory level of Python to implement simulation models.
I have also designed and lectured a special topic, a two-hours master's lectures with applications to Mathematical Finance, in the simulation of quantiles at the University of Edinburgh. I have tutored first-year mathematics and statistics subjects to business students, in English, during my PhD studies and first-year mathematics as a part of my honour's studies at the University of Melbourne.
Mathematical knowledge is based upon basic logical premises and to meet the needs of the time. The concepts may not be simple to understand, and a body of knowledge built on many of these premises interconnecting in multiple ways. I see that my role is to simplify the understanding process and show how the concepts interact.
Improvement in understanding a mathematical topic requires disciplined, planned study. It takes hard work, and practice and sustained progress take time. As a tutor, I will try to remove or alleviate any mental blocks or impediments as a part of your study.
As your tutor, I would like to understand your goals for these sessions and your concerns with the subject(s) that you want improvement or greater understanding. That would be part of an introductory discussion, and the discussion will be free of charge. I want regular input from students between sessions to identify issues or direct progress they would like to explore.
