I've tutored several students in linear algebra since 2001. I first learned the subject as an undergraduate engineer at Penn State. During graduate school as a teaching assistant at MIT, I taught seniors to apply linear algebra to biotechnology using a stoichiometric matrix to estimate metabolite concentrations during bacterial fermentation. As an editor, I helped proofread the solution manual to Poole's linear algebra textbook. 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 pro [more]

Linear algebra is an extension of ordinary algebra to spaces of 2+ dimensions and transformations on them, with emphasis on applications in introductory physics. I have extensive experience in this material from my previous career (30 years) as a guidance, navigation and control engineer in the aerospace industry. Both control and navigation make intensive use of this topic area in solving the their fundamental problems. I am an experienced high school physics and mathematics teacher, retired, with current Massachusetts certification in both areas. I have taught various levels of mathematics [more]

I studied theoretical math at MIT and have taught all levels of linear algebra to undergraduate and graduate students at most of Boston's colleges, including Boston University, Boston College, Northeastern, MIT, Harvard, Wellesley, Suffolk, and Simmons. 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 humani [more]

I have taken many courses at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute where linear algebra is key to understanding the concepts, such as Multivariable Calculus, Systems Analysis Techniques, Robotics and others. I have received stellar grades in all these classes. In 4 years of High School, 4 years of College, and 2 years of Graduate School, I learned innumerable things about a wide variety of topics, but the most important lesson I learned was this: the students who get A's are not necessarily the most naturally gifted in the class, but are the almost always the hardest workers. Sooner or later, every [more]

In Linear Algebra, linear equations, matrices, vector spaces, and linear transformations are studied. Although a few concepts, such as solving linear equations dates back to the ancients, a number of important matrix concepts like determinants and eigenvalues/eigenvectors were developed more recently and gave rise to the modern areas of the subject. Examples of applications: 1. Systems of linear equations occur when using Kirchhoff's laws in Physics to solve for currents/resistances in electric circuits. 2. Matrix transformations are used extensively by computer graphics systems. For exampl [more]

Linear algebra was integral to my physics degree. My approach to linear algebra is to build upon the student's background in vectors and matrices from advanced algebra, and strike a balance between theory and practice depending upon the student's interests. I am particularly versed in applications of linear algebra to problems in physics and computer science. I am a writer, programmer, and experienced mentor who loves teaching.

I have a BA in Economics from the University of Washington; an MA in Economics from Boston University; and I will be applying to economics PhD programs this fall (2017). I bought a textbook and taught myself Linear Algebra before I took Differential Equations. I have used Linear Algebra extensively in my economics work and also have experience with matrix manipulation in MATLAB. Since 2015 I have tutored students in subjects ranging from introductory through graduate-level micro- and macroeconomics as well as Prealgebra through Calculus. My background gives me a unique perspective on the issue [more]

The title of this subject can be misleading: it sounds easy but it's actually more abstract than it sounds. It can be difficult to conceptualize some topics in this subject, but don't worry I am here to help! Engineering majors who are required to take this class will find it to be one of their more difficult math classes. In College, I was instructed in this subject using Gilbert Strang's book Linear Algebra, 3rd edition, Wellesley-Cambridge Press. I highly recommend this book. If you are struggling with any of the following areas, please reach out --I will deliver clarity: 1). Vectors 2 [more]

I have a Ph.D in physics, and along the way I've had to learn quantum mechanics forwards and backwards. Quantum mechanics single most powerful tool is linear algebra. I've taken the college upper division course in LA, and have studied LA's theorem-proof aspects (Hermetian operators have strictly real eigenvalues, etc.) in my various math methods courses in undergraduate and graduate physics. I've also helped friends and classmates understand null spaces, orthogonal basis sets, singular value decomposition and other tricks of the LA trade. I'm confident I can handle any question in LA with mi [more]

I have a degree in Engineering from Cambridge University in England. I am an experienced teacher of mathematics. I have taught students up to college entry and beyond. 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 [more]
