I have years of experience in discrete math. I took a number of courses in the subject. I've used the concepts during my years as a programmer and have tutored many students in the subject. I have a PhD in Economics from UCDavis and a Masters in Mathematics. I have a broad background in Math/Science and Economics. I have taught a number of courses and have previously worked as a GRE/GMAT/SAT/ACT instructor. I am well regarded as an excellent instructor and am able to deal with students with a wide range of abilities in math, finance and economics. I worked a number of years as a data analyst a [more]

In college I extensively studied mathematical proof and set theory, and have also succeeded in courses on combinatorics and probability. I am a Naperville North High School and University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign graduate with a degree in Mathematics. I have extensive problem-solving experience including winning 1st place at the 2007 ICTM State Math Contest, qualifying for the USA Math Olympiad, and placing in the top 500 in the national Putnam competition. My tutoring methods vary student-by-student, but I specialize in breaking down problems and asking questions to guide the student to [more]

I received an A+ in my undergraduate Discrete Mathematics course at UC Berkeley. I use discrete math frequently when performing amortized analysis on computer programs. I also use discrete structures when finding approximate solutions to integrals in both physics and calculus. Just for fun, I like to re-derive formulas like Gauss' method for summing the numbers from 1 to n (there are n/2 pairs of numbers that sum to n + 1, therefore the answer is n*(n + 1)/2, cool right?). I am recent graduate of UC Berkeley's College of Engineering. While in school I studied a variety of disciplines including [more]

I have many years of experience with application of discrete math in development of computer programs. I have studied and developed algorithms for encryption and many other purposes. I have studied logic and metamathematics at U.C. Berkeley. I have taught logic and set theory at U.C. Berkeley and Cal State University at Chico. Hi! I'm enthusiastic about helping young people become outstanding students by assisting with writing skills and tutoring in math and physics. I'm most interested in improving reasoning and communication skills essential for academic success. I prefer to work with famili [more]

I have a B.Sc. in Economics/Operations Research and I studied optimization, graph theory and applied Operations Research methodology to research and modeling. I hold a M.S. in Mathematics and an interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Mathematics, Computer Science, and Physics. Over time I have been working at colleges and universities in Germany, in France, and in the U.S. In addition I worked for a decade at research labs in Germany and in the U.S. (LBNL) and at a risk modeling company. Since 2010 I dedicate my professional attention full time to teaching mainly math and computer science as a tutor and [more]

I am majoring in Mathematics at Mills College, with potential interest in pursuing a Master's Degree in Computer Science. As part of my coursework last semester, I took a course in Discrete Math. I am familiar with various proof techniques and with logic and set theory, and I am experienced in the kind of mathematical thinking that Discrete Math requires. I am received a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics from Mills College, and am now working for an arts nonprofit with youth in Oakland. Before college, I never would have guessed that I would end up studying math, but a really great experience [more]

I majored in mathematical and computational sciences at Stanford in 2006 and have been tutoring up to AB calculus and statistics for 14 years. Statistics was about 1/3 of my math major, and I made an A in my number theory class which had a cryptography portion. Probability (especially combinatorics) is one of my favorite concepts to teach. Almost all of my kids have raised their scores by at least one letter grade. I have been tutoring students for 14 years in California, Manhattan, England and Houston, TX. All of my students raise their scores by at least a letter grade. SAT students hav [more]

Discrete Math can be one of the most challenging of undergrad math courses. It is reminiscent of geometry, in that it has a main focus of "why", rather than the "what and where" of algebra and calculus. The symbolic language of Discrete Math is usually a bit challenging for most students. Upside down E's and A's can be confusing...Always....Sometimes... Getting to the details of each statement and it's composite statement of undeniable conclusion, can take more creativity than writing music or literature. Understanding in this course helps one define truth in other non-numerical topics as w [more]

I have experience tutoring students in introduction to proofs, discrete math, and elementary combinatorics and probability classes. I have taken graduate level courses in advanced linear algebra, modern algebra, and the algorithm design. I am currently tutoring AP statistics, undergraduate probability and statistics, linear models, computational statistics or data science courses that use R, and related mathematical topics such as linear algebra, and discrete math. I specialize in tutoring data science flavored courses taught using the R language. I have a graduate degree in mathematics and [more]

I have a background as an actuary and MBA training. Therefore, I have experience with many of the areas of discrete math typically encountered in introductory college coursework: set theory, combinatorics, probability theory, matrices and operations research. There is no one way to learn. Rote memorization is at one end of the spectrum and instantaneous complete understanding and insight of the topic is at the other end. There is a lot in between. People do not learn everything the same way - their own ability to learn changes from moment to moment and subject to subject. Sometimes m [more]
