I have a degree in theoretical math from MIT and have taught discrete mathematics to students at most of Boston's colleges. I specialize in rigorous, high-level academic tutoring, test preparation, and enrichment for high school, college, and graduate students. I have ten years and thousands of hours of experience with students around the world. BIO: I studied theoretical math, literature, and philosophy at MIT and Harvard. My interests span the sciences and humanities. I've done labwork in molecular biology, biomedical engineering, cognitive neuroscience, and natural language processing at N [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'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 B.S. In Math, am starting a Math PhD next year. I have strong proof and logic skills. Specifically, I have earned a computer science minor, in the course of which I took an honors discrete math and theory of computation course. I earned a B+. I have familiarity with discrete structures, recursive definitions, and most importantly, the logic and proof techniques underlying discrete math, like proof by induction, propositional calculus, predicates, quantifiers, implications, etc. These techniques are used throughout math, and I have high proficiency, and deep conceptual understandin [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 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 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 an applied math undergrad degree. I am studying combinatorics, a subfield of applied math in my PhD. I have been tutoring college level math and physics since 2006, and have TA'd multiple times. I'm Francisco, I am finishing my PhD in Applied Mathematics at MIT, and have more than a decade of HS and college level tutoring experience. I have also TA'd many college level courses, so I know what's up! I understand that knowing a lot of math is very different from knowing how to teach math, so I try to tailor my classes to my students. I always welcome (and even encourage!) people to provi [more]
