You're not a donk, we don't need sharkscope to tell us that. Your first post pretty much outlined that you're an intelligent thinking player. Good BRM, playing games that suit you (SNG's for a guy with a maths background), running $0 up to 1.8k without taking significant risks (i.e. not requiring significant luck). That says more than tracking software will.
I do agree with everyone else about at least downloading the free trials of PT3 and/or HEM, knowing how much various hands are earning you and from what position as well as the effectiveness of various plays like cbetting and pre-flop steals will be a huge asset to your game. More than anything else, it will help you to plug some leaks which are no doubt in your game (in everyones).
Not sure that I can suggest anything specifically to do with SNGs, but I definately recommend not staying at the same stakes for too long. Your game should be constantly evolving and staying ahead of your opponents' development. Apart from anything else, the game is just much more interesting with new challenges. If you're rolled to move up, then do. Learn and adapt your skill set to beat continually higher stakes.
