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. 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 taken discrete mathematics as an undergraduate at the United States Naval Academy and received an 'A' in the course. Discrete Mathematics is the foundation for many of the following high-level Computer Science courses I have taken as an undergraduate, so I routinely referenced my notes from Discrete Math. I assisted many of my classmates with the course both while I took it and once I had completed the course. I tutor because I enjoy seeing my students excel in subjects they have previously struggled with. I have found that more rewarding than gaining knowledge and earning good grade m [more]

Discrete math includes topics such as summation with sigma notation, mathematical induction (both weak and strong), combinatorics, and graph theory. These are all subjects I have studied extensively in a variety of settings: in courses I took on the way to receiving my bachelor's degree in math, in my work over the past 30+ years tutoring students who were dealing with these topics in their courses, and privately just for my own pleasure. I have already enjoyed considerable success tutoring these topics outside the WyzAnt system, and I am eminently qualified to pursue these topics with WyzAnt [more]

I graduated from Carnegie Mellon with a minor in Mathematics. I excelled at discrete mathematics and have taken courses in Combinatorics, Graph Theory, Number Theory, Probability, Linear Algebra, etc. I was also a peer tutor for many of these courses. I'm a Carnegie Mellon graduate, who's currently a software developer at Google. I started tutoring at college, where I taught mathematics and computer science as a university peer-tutor. I was also a teaching assistant for several courses. As a tutor, I strive to ensure that the basics are well-understood, as a strong foundation is critical. As a [more]

I have taught discrete mathematics and cryptography courses along with logic design of computing elements at a postgraduate school. I have designed ISAs (instruction set architectures) for RISC CPUs and worked with on hardware hacking various security systems. I teach STEM high school, community college and graduate Science, Technology*, Engineering and Mathematics subjects. I also teach Digital and analog signal processing for cellular and satellite communications systems. I have a BSc from UC Berkeley in Bio-Engineering and a Master of Engineering in VLSI (integrated circuit - microchip) D [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]
