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 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]

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. Local (Pleasanton/Dublin/San Ramon) HS have finals this week. The winter break of 3 week will be a good time to preview for next semester or fill in what your children has missed. Many students have not learned well from their teachers for various reasons including compatibility, inadequate preparations of teachers and/or textbook (esp. from CPM), time-constraints of students and adaptation to new course. Please cont [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 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]

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]

I have a BA in Mathematics from UC Berkeley. Discrete Math is an introduction to all of the mathematics that is used in computer science. Not the math that you might solve using a computer; rather, the math that led to the existence of computers in the first place, and that helps you analyze how to write programs about non-mathematical subjects, and that helps you analyze how well a program works. It gets you started on a huge number of different subjects: algebra, logic, graph theory, automata theory, formal language theory ... just to name a very few! This might seem intimidating. But I [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 a junior at Mills College, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics. Before college, I never would have guessed that I would end up studying math, but a really great experience with a professor at Mills changed my mind. I believe [more]

I have taken a variety of Undergrad math courses including Discrete Math. Discrete is an interesting course that brings in probability, proof writing, logic, and number theory among other topics. I can help students to improve their understanding of how to write proofs, apply counting strategies, follow logic to reach conclusions, work with the Chinese Remainder Theorem, Fermat's Little Theorem, modular arithmetic, etc. I am currently in the Cal Teach Credential Program at UC Berkeley and am a High School Math Teacher.
