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]

I have taken symbolic logic courses in middle school and received an A average. I have also used logic for computer programming courses in high school and college, also receiving A averages in these classes. I feel confident teaching and explaining symbolic logic concepts such as Modus Ponens, Modus Tollens, etc. as well as teaching the more general logic concepts like building complex arguments and breaking them down to make sense of them. I earned my pizza money since middle school and throughout high school, college, and post-college working and volunteering as both a tutor in all kinds of [more]

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]

I earned a BS in mathematics at MIT, where I took the upper level undergraduate course in logic for math majors and got an A. I have written software that handles three-valued logic (a rather specialized topic). I also earned a PhD in mathematics (geometry and physics) at Berkeley. I like to help people learn. I focus on improving problem-solving strategies and understanding of fundamental concepts. I succeed in helping a wide range of because I am attentive to each student's learning styles. I am a class teacher and senior tutor at a premium educational services firm. Mathematics and Physic [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]

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 teaching logic for over 10 years both incorporated into geometry courses as well as algebra courses. I am an MIT graduate with 2 doctorate degrees and I am well qualified to teach logic - both deductive and inductive logic, syllogisms, etc. I am an MIT grad with 2 doctorate degrees, and over 10 years of experience tutoring: physics, chemistry, biology, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, calculus, biochemistry, microbiology, anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, cell biology, and genetics. Currently, I work full-time as a Research Scientist at MIT. I have also done so [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]

I have done extensive graduate study in linguistics and the logic of language, as well as study in mathematical logic. I have four years of experience tutoring logic courses at Rutgers University. I translate the logical concepts into basic idea of rational thinking that students already possess. I have over ten years of tutoring and teaching experience in a variety of fields, including writing, language arts, reading comprehension, social science, and mathematics. I have a master's degree in linguistics, which is an interdisciplinary field that trains the brain in unique ways--unique ways th [more]
