I studied theoretical math at MIT, where I took courses in formal logic---which covered everything from the metatheory of propositional and predicate logic to Godel's incompleteness theorems and computability. I'm also currently enrolled as a master's student in philosophy at Tufts. 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 interest [more]

I was enrolled for two years in a math graduate program in logic. As an undergraduate I majored in philosophy, with an emphasis on logic. I scored perfect on the GRE quantitative reasoning test. I am driven by the challenge of helping every student to succeed. Most recently I have done this at the secondary level as a public charter school teacher. Prior to that, alongside my own doctoral work in mathematics, I taught and assistant-taught college-level math classes, from remedial Calculus to Multivariate Calculus. Helping students discover math themselves is the subject of the PROMYS program [more]

As a student of philosophy, first as an undergraduate major in philosophy at Reed College, and now as a PhD student in philosophy at Harvard University, I have been required to take courses in logic. I have taught and graded logic as well. At Reed, I took one course in first-order logic, including soundness and completeness, as well as a course in modal logic. I received As in both courses. In my last year at Reed, I worked as a tutor and grader for the aforementioned course in first-order logic. While at Harvard, I took another course in first-order logic, and again received an A.

I took mathematical logic during my undergraduate education. The topics included boolean algebra, theorem proving via rules of inference, and later, equation logic. Part of the curriculum revolved around proving certain major results, including the completeness theorem for boolean algebra, and the compactness theorem. I helped a number of students with solving logic problems. I emphasize the fact that practicing logic strengthens one's ability to think in many different school disciplines. I also mention that solving many puzzles, which many of us like doing in our spare time, requires logical [more]

As a Java programmer at the Graduate level, logical fallacies are my pet peeve. I have studied symbolic logic since an undergrad, which has given me the ability to express phrases as variables and operators. I additionally have a pragmatic, objective view of life which is another take on the word "logic". My name is Craig and I am a graduate student at the Boston University School of Medicine. I am currently researching a new technology to help alleviate pain among cancer patients and burn victims. I'd like to help kids get interested and excited about school by showing them it can lead to int [more]

All of proof-based mathematics lies atop of first order logic, that is, propositional logic with predicates, and quantifiers. This language has become natural to me in the course of earning two B.S. degrees in Math and Physics. I successfully completed the most difficult logic and discrete math class available at my university, and now tutor other pure math majors taking the same course. Logic courses are often taught in the context of discrete structures, the theory of computation, or algebra and number theory. My experience in these tangential subjects helps students to succeed in their part [more]

From 1996-1999, I student Symbolic Logic and Many Valued Logic at Westfield State College. I also served as a volunteer teaching assistant. I have been a third grade general education teacher and a special education teacher for grades one through five, with experience writing Individual Education Plans (IEP's) and analyzing psycho-educational testing to determine special education eligibility. As a professional elementary school teacher and substitute teacher, I have over ten years of professional experience with students from diverse populations of all cultures and economic levels. I have a [more]

I am a retired university math lecturer who has been teaching various math subjects including Logic for over 30 years. I have also experience of private tutoring in Logic during said period. I am a retired university math lecturer looking for students, who need experienced tutor. Relying on more than 30 years experience in teaching and tutoring, I strongly believe that my profile is a very good fit for tutoring and teaching positions. I have significant experience of teaching and mentoring at both high school and all university levels in different mathematics subjects such as Geometry, Pre-Ca [more]

Logic is the study of the relationship betwen words and concepts. Exploration begins with understanding the basic ways concepts interact with a special focus on "if, then" statements. Once this is mastered, we begin exploring how mathematics and the natural sciences "reason logically" and how our basic understandings of natural laws develop from basic relationships between words and objects. Hello, my name is Roger H. I have successfully tutored high, middle, and elementary school students in many subjects: Math through calculus History (including US history, Western Civ, and Modern Euro [more]

I have been exposed to logical concepts my entire life, beginning with logic puzzles that I would work on for fun outside of school. However, my first formal exposure to logic was in my 8th grade Algebra I class, where I first learned about propositional logic, including truth tables, Boolean algebra (negation/and/or/if-then/if-and-only-if), and logical laws (contradiction, contrapositive, modus ponens, modus tollens, syllogism, De Morgan's laws, etc.). In my senior year of college, I took a Mathematical Logic course with a well-known logician, and earned a B+. In this class, I learned about [more]
