Hi, I'm Owen!

I graduated summa cum laude with a B.S.E. in Computer Science from the University of Michigan and currently work in Chicago as a software developer at a proprietary trading firm.

Throughout the past 8 years, I have tutored students across many STEM subjects including Computer Science, Statistics, Math, Physics, Chemistry, and more. I also served as an Instructional Aide at UM for EECS 482 (Introduction to Operating Systems) where I led classroom discussions and worked 1-on-1 w...
Owen is helpful with understanding broad concepts and ideas that make it easier to piece together the concepts your working with. He is very thorough in his explanations and is clearly very knowledgeable on the subject matter.
- Nadine B. from Ann Arbor, MI
Owen explains the math in a way that it is easy to understand. He is very helpful and patient. I have worked with him in both Statistics and Calculus and he helped me improve my grade. Highly recommend him as a math tutor.
- Sofia S. from East Lansing, MI
I met with Owen five times during a four week period, preceding the end of an online Statistics Course that I was barely maintaining an acceptable grade in. Meeting with Owen was exactly what I needed in order to understand the very challenging concepts. He was very patient and clear in his explanations. He gave great examples if I wasn't fully understanding something, and utilized a chalk board to draw out examples -- which was exactly like being in a "real" class. He also made sure we didn't waste a minute of time. If we had a few extra minutes at the end, instead of leaving early he would review concepts that we covered that session to reinforce the subject matter. Owen was worth every penny, and had I not met with him I would not have gotten the grade I needed. He is exceptionally knowledgeable, friendly, and thoughtful. I highly recommend him if you need help with Statistics!
- Natalie Z. from Ann Arbor, MI
Owen is great! He simplified all of the topics I was having trouble with in Stats 250 by helping me really understand the concepts. He not only taught me how to solve the problems, but also explained why I was solving the problems the way I was, and explained the importance of each step in the problem-solving process. He uses clear, easy-to-grasp examples every step of the way.
- Jordan R. from Ann Arbor, MI
Owen is able to explain things in simpler terms to make things more understandable. He teaches the concepts of statistics so you are better able to apply it to all statistics questions.
- Serena P. from Ann Arbor, MI
Owen is very helpful with explaining problems until you understand. He also is very educated on the material making his teaching ability much stronger.
- Alex B. from Ann Arbor, MI
Owen is a very patient guy and an excellent programming tutor. He really helped me when I was in a bind and stayed for longer than an hour. I will be contacting him again.
- Richard E. from Ann Arbor, MI
I was having trouble in my advanced programming class and Owen was able to break down the large task into smaller tasks. He was able to explain complex ideas in an understandable ways and clearly knows the material. I would recommend Owen for anyone who is looking to get a tutor for programming.
- Ketan K. from Ann Arbor, MI
Owen taught me the basics of Matlab in an organized and efficient way, suitable to my level of knowledge. Thank you.
- Ian O. from Ann Arbor, MI
Owen was very helpful, timely and accommodating. He responded and scheduled very quickly. Know his material. I highly recommend him.
- Jerry P. from Utica, MI
Owen worked with my daughter covering some topics on the AP Calculus AB exam, reviewed some of her past calculus class exams, and worked on some of the math problems so that she could understand them. Owen is a very good tutor. He was easy to reach, very accommodating, personable, and was well prepared so that she could get the most out of her session. As she continues to work through the AP practice exams in preparation for the AP Calculus test, we hope to use Owen again since he is very knowledgeable with the material and is very good in explaining it. Thanks for the great session.
- Bill D. from Livonia, MI
Owen Y. responded very quickly to my email asking for help. The tutoring session went over quickly because he knew exactly what he was working with and knew exactly how to teach how to perform the MATLAB calculations. This tutor is quick in responding to emails and is also very helpful with MATLAB. A+ tutor.
- Joshua A. from Garden City, MI
Owen is a great tutor. My son was having trouble understanding college level calculus. Owen worked with him in a way that made the material much easier for my son to understand. We were lucky to connect with Owen and my son looks forward to continuing to work with him on an ongoing basis!
- Lyn W. from Ann Arbor, MI
Owen was quick to respond to my email and made it very easy to set up a tutoring session quick. I needed help immediately with stats and he was available that very same day. He explained problems in other situations that made it easier to understand.
- Denise G. from Canton, MI
He was very responsive to my emails with questions when I was trying to set up a time and location to meet. He was flexible with meeting and time. Owen is an excellent teacher. Within the first 10 minutes he showed me things in DreamWeaver that would save me grief while working on the project. He was extremely knowledgeable about html and webdesign. He showed me the things I needed to do in order to get my homework done and much more. I would will be requesting his services again for future projects.
- Cristina D. from Westland, MI
Owen tutored me for physics 2: electricity and magnetism and was really great at explaining tricky concepts but making them seem more simple at the same time. There was not one question we went over that he did not know how to do- highly recommended!
- Valerie E. from West Bloomfield, MI
It has been a pleasure getting to know Owen. We are impressed with his novel teaching approach, after the first lesson our kids were enthusiastically looking forward to another session. Owen is particularly gifted in establishing a quick relationship with the students, is extremely engaging and capable of expanding the students scientific curiosity. By complementing rigorous teaching with fun instructional games, Owen found a particular recipe that greatly helped our teenage boys.
