I've tutored number theory since 2001. I also learned and used combinatorics and discrete probability theory in graduate school for research. However, I am not familiar with some topics in discrete mathematics such as information theory and graph theory. I've tutored a wide variety of students from 4th grade to Ph.D. level in many math and science disciplines. I've also co-led several writers' workshops, and I'm a professional writer and editor of math and science textbooks. My educational background is in biochemical engineering. I received a full academic scholarship to Penn State and an NSF [more]

I have a degree in theoretical math from MIT and have taught discrete math to students at most of Boston's colleges. I'm an independent tutor in my late twenties. I specialize in academic tutoring and test preparation for high school, college, and graduate students. I have ten years and thousands of hours of experience working with hundreds of students around the world, and I look forward to helping you! BIO: I studied theoretical math, literature, and philosophy at MIT and Harvard. I?m also the first person in my family to go to college. My interests span the sciences and humanities. I've do [more]

I took PROMYS (Program in Math for Young Scientists) for teachers at BU several years ago (1992) as part of my master's program, this intense summer course involved studying number theory and discrete math topics full time (40+ hours/week) for a month and a half. I also do extensive work with logic and set theory in my honors geometry classes. As a math education specialist, I work well with many different types of students from middle school through adult. I also bring an energy and love of my subject that helps students connect with their work. My creativity and an ability to connect math to [more]

I have been exposed to Discrete Mathematics since early high school, and have used a lot during my undergraduate studies, most notably in context of computer science. My exposure to it included Combinatorics, Graph Theory, etc. There was also some coverage of cryptography near the end of a college level course. As for the Number Theory, I was exposed most of the basic concepts from early middle school, and in high school, I attended PROMYS, which covered it at the college level. I haven't put Number theory to practical use very often, but did apply it during my college curriculum in math and [more]

As a physicist and computational scientist, my knowledge of applied mathematics incorporates many topics in discrete systems: logical grammar (if p then q); techniques of proofs; recursion relations, difference equations & their solutions; matrices operations; counting, combinatorics & probability; set theory and graph theory. My Ph.D. thesis had an exact, constrained enumeration as its springboard into statistical calculations. In order to simplify the resulting complex statistics, I reduced the problem to a graph for which I developed a kinetic model. I simulated kinetics on the graph and so [more]

I have taken a class called Discrete Structures from the University of Massachusetts Lowell, in fact, I took the undergraduate version and the graduate version. I have a transcript from UML which I could send you if you need it. Both times taking the course I received an A. I have an undergraduate degree from Harvard in Computer Science and a Master of Education in Math Education from UMass Lowell. I have been teaching at North Reading High School for 15 years, and I enjoy working with students. I have years of experience with tutoring one-on-one including honors students looking for that top [more]

I have successfully taught Decision Mathematics up to Year 13 in the English system which is analogous to Discrete Mathematics the overlap is about 90%. I am a mature and energetic teacher with much prior experience outside of teaching, which I use to bring relevance and insight to mathematics. I have also tutored one-to-one for nearly two decades, including both the most gifted of students and those who need help with the fundamentals. My aim is always to allow pupils to progress at the pace which best suits them - to move forward swiftly when possible but to slow down and consolidate wh [more]

I have an extensive background in probability and combinatorics. I taught an applied math course which included probability and graph theory at Rutgers University. I was a grader for a discrete math course which included the topics of logic, probability, and graph theory at Boston University. I've found one-on-one sessions as the most effective way to learn math. I can diagnose and address deficiencies that would otherwise go undetected in a standard classroom environment. I explain the material so the student can learn through understanding. No short cuts required - if it makes sense, the stu [more]

In my junior year of college, I simultaneously took both courses of a Discrete Mathematics sequence, earning a B+ in the first course, and an A in the second. These courses covered the following topics: basic set theory, set-theoretic operations (unions, intersections, difference, symmetric difference, complement, etc), combinatorics (counting problems), proofs by induction, the pigeon-hole principle, basic number theory (prime numbers, the Euclidean algorithm), Latin squares, group theory, rings, fields, and other related topics. As a current PhD student in Mathematics, I am very proficient [more]

I have been a Faculty member in the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, Chemical Engineering Dept at the University of New Hampshire, Durham, NH from Sept. 1976 until I took early retirement in May 2013, a total of 37 years. I started as Assistant Professor, then Associate Professor then Full Professor. Prior to that, I taught at M.I.T. for three years. I taught common courses that cover Discrete Math and worked with high school and freshmen students on discrete math and the interplay of discrete math and robotics. [more]
