Master the fundamentals and the rest will come naturally

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]

Effective Tutor for Math, Computer Science, and German

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]

Mills College math major

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]

Tutor and Graduate of Stanford & Oxford

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]

Actuary/Former High School Math Teacher

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]

Tutor of Mathematics and Computer Science

My BS degree in Computer Science required me to take an upper level Discrete Math course. I have used discrete math in my work including probabilities, set theory, and tree structures. I have also tutored discrete math at the College of Alameda. Mathematical concepts have always come easy to me. It is a talent I was born with and enjoyed every subject from arithmetic, to geometry and trig, algebra and calculus, linear algebra and real analysis. It was an easy transition to computer science. My career took me from database programming to web development and continues to evolve. I have found th [more]

Postdoctoral scholar in chemistry, happily tutoring all the sciences

I have taken two courses in discrete mathematics. The first, at Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Sciences, was problem solving-based, covering a variety of topics in combinatorics, graph theory, and number theory. The second, Mathematics 152 at Harvard, was a rigorous proof-based course that linked topics in discrete mathematics to group theory and Euclidean geometry. I've taken two other courses at the graduate level that covered a topic called "evolutionary graph theory," which applies certain elements of game theory to computational models of evolutionary dynamics, evaluated on struc [more]

UCB/SFSU Mathematics Researcher For Math and Science Tutoring

In research, discrete mathematics is a basic required tool. For any research in math, set theory and logic are the fundamental building blocks. Induction and counting arguments such as the pigeon-hole principle are used to an incredible extent when trying to prove a pattern in some complex concept. These are all components of research that I use with great care as one fallacy can ruin an entire paper. Hello! I am a Korean-American mathematics researcher at San Francisco State University and UC Berkeley. I have been tutoring for three years in the college setting. I generally tutor calculus and [more]
