I have a PhD in pure mathematics and can manage teaching discrete math courses. I have a PhD in Mathematics from Colorado State University in 2013. I have 5+ years experience teaching and tutoring undergraduate level math courses. I am available to tutor in a variety of math courses for grades 6 and up and also college level courses including algebra, calculus, discrete math, math for social sciences, probability and statistics. I can also help with SAT test preparation for math levels 1 and 2. I am passionate about teaching and have a never-give-up attitude. My experie... [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 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 taught Discrete Math (Math 42) during Fall 2008 at San Jose State U. Also, I have a Ph.D. in Math and my research area/Master Thesis is closely related to Discrete Math. Summer is now. I have some plans set up for variable length (from a few classes or all through the Summer months) for certain classes like Calculus (AB, BC and college level), Algebra I/II and Geometry classes for local HS or can customize one for your children. Groups are welcome with discounts (about 25 percent per student for a group of two). Please contact me for your Math tutoring needs. Usually I can give a short [more]

I took the course and received a grade of a 'B' in this course. It would have been an 'A' had it not been for personal reasons outside of school out of my own control. I can formally write a proof using a series of approaches which includes: Direct Proof, Proof by contraposition, Proof by contradiction, or by counterexample. The course itself also included: Probability theory, Set theory, various formal definitions, and methods of deductions. I also took a required refresher course in proper proof writing at San Jose State University, and received an A- in that course, along with some applicat [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]

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 took courses in Discrete math when in College. I have done consultancy based on Graph theory, which is part of discrete math. I have tutored students on Discrete math. Discrete math overlaps with set theory and logic, both of which are basic to higher mathematics and my expertise thereof. I have a Ph.D. in Math, and taught math and applied math and worked in the industry in applied math for over twenty years. I have tutored in Calculus , Vector Calculus, Linear Algebra, Statistics, Probability, Discrete Math and Differential Equations and Physics. My students testify that I explain [more]
