I was a graduate student in mathematics at Caltech and a postdoc at Columbia University. I left academia to work in industry, but I enjoy teaching. I have written dozens of articles and a book on applying mathematics for general audiences. I'm working on a parent's guide to algebra and book on applying economics to improve environmentalism. I've tutored mathematics, statistics, economics, computer science, and programming since 2013 on other sites. My goal is to make the material make sen... [more]

I'm an experienced teacher who loves helping students achieve their educational goals. I have a B.A. (History; Math), two M.A.'s (European History; History of Science, Medicine, & Technology), and a wide range of teaching: taught many different college history courses; high school math; junior high math and science; ESL in Taiwan; chess. Also have good standardized test scores (e.g., GRE 790V, 780M, 720A; "competitive" score on the NSA's Professional Qualifications T... [more]

I have a bachelor's degree in math and secondary education from Rhode Island College. I have been tutoring privately for over twenty years in a wide variety of subjects including Geometry. I studied Geometry independently in eighth grade because I had taken Algebra I in seventh grade with the eighth graders. I also had a semester of Geometry in college and received a perfect grade of 4.0. It is one of my favorite subjects. From the time I was in grade school, I have been helping others to learn one-on-one. I was considered "gifted" because I understood and completed my work very quickly, and [more]

I have two bachelors degrees, one in Applied Mathematics and one in Earth Science. I am currently attending Brown university to obtain a PhD in Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences with a focus in oceanography. For mathematics, my strengths are in calculus, linear algebra and ODE/PDE. I have also taken courses in abstract algebra, discrete mathematics, real and complex analysis, number theory, geometry and numerical analysis. For earth science, I generally focus on global climate and... [more]

I love math, and have tutored and taught math for many years, with students of very different backgrounds and abilities--in the US and abroad, high school and college-age students. My paper qualifications include a BA in math from Harvard and a high school math teaching certification from MA and RI--but, of course, a tutor is made from much more than paper. I am always cheerful and positive and have often been asked to help students prepare for the year ahead over the summer, giving stude... [more]

After acing all four quarters of advanced geometry w/ logic as a freshman at Barrington High School (BHS), I pursued an undergraduate degree at Lyndon State College (LSC) where I took a senior level geometry class and passed with the grade of an A+. This geometry class first focused on Euclidean geometry and then progressed into non-Euclidean geometries by changing the truth value of Eulid's fifth parallel postulate from true to false. The major non-Euclidean geometries studied were inversion, hyperbolic, elliptic, homothetic, loxodromic, and spherical. The class was entirely developed using c [more]

In tutoring, I emphasize reading and understanding the problems, listing to the given information and deciding on the best strategy with which to address the problem. Some topics I can help with include such vocabulary words as points, lines, planes, intersecting lines and parallel lines. I can help with calculating the area and volume of shapes. I am also experienced in writing proofs. I have had 15 years experience teaching high school science, including biology, chemistry, physics, anatomy and physiology, and forensic science. In addition, I have been tutoring at a local community college [more]

I am currently a third year PhD student at Brown University. I got my Masters degree in Physics from Brown last year, with a GPA of 4.0. I spent my undergrad years at Rutgers University, double-majoring in Physics and Computer Science. I got my pre-college education in Cyprus. I have extensive experience teaching physics labs, both undergraduate and graduate (have been TAing for two years at Brown). My goal is to facilitate 'understanding' of the material, not just 'knowing' it, so that stu... [more]

I received a score of 100% on the WyzAnt test for this subject. I've taught Geometry for many years. I've been teaching high school Math for about 17 years in Providence. I've taught everything from Pre-Algebra to Pre-Calculus. I've also tutored beginning Calculus. I've worked with all sorts of graphing calculators. I've worked with special education students mixed into my classes. Presently I am constantly attending professional development for the new Common Core Standards that RI has adopted.... [more]

I teach accelerated mathematics in a private middle school which covers content from 7th-10th grade. This includes 1-,2- and 3-D geometry basics, extensive instruction in angle/line/polygon construction, proving lines parallel and perpendicular, ratios, proportions and similarities, coordinate geometry, perimeter/area/surface area and volume with 2-dimensional polygons and 3-dimensional solids. I also do enrichment with formal proofs (SAS, ASA, HL, etc.), Pythagorean Theorem, Heron's Formula and Trigonometry (Sohcahtoa) using TI-84s. [more]
