As part of my math major requirements, I took an upper-level course in mathematical logic as an elective and got an A. I only lost a fraction of a point on a midterm for not citing a theorem from lecture; otherwise, I would have gotten perfect score in the class. I love constructing formal proofs using a first order language and predicate calculus. Deducing that a statement is true as a consequence of the rules of inference applied to a set of axioms is most entertaining. I doubt most students go beyond truth tables and naive set theory, but I can help them out with those as well. [more]

I have completed all undergraduate logic courses available at University of Pittsburgh with a grade of A in all of them. I can manipulate sentences of both sentence and predicate logic in a few different formal systems. As an Eagle scout and former camp counselor, I have several years experience of informal teaching. I have taught both physical skills like swimming, canoeing, and karate, as well as more "paper-and-pencil" knowledge, including the basic understandings of weather, first aid, and the behaviors and classifications of mammals, reptiles, and amphibians. I have also tutored elementar [more]

I did very well in my electrical engineering faculties digital logic course. I am also comfortable with boolean algebra, Karnaugh maps, truth tables, flip flops. I can tutor for certain problems synchronous (Moore, Mealy) or asynchronous state machine design with enough advance warning. I also became familiar with the application of boolean algebra to close analysis, the analysis of an argument, thanks to an excellent MOOC course on the subject from Duke University. I strive to provide tutoring with a patient, courteous and professional demeanor. I encourage students to develop their knowledg [more]

Logic is nothing more than an application of the logical part of the brain. We can use symbols to represent not only what certain statements say but also can use other symbols to specify specific meanings, ex, using 'V' to represent an 'OR' situation as in 'it is raining OR is it sunny" After using these symbols, we can then apply the many rules of logic to determine the validity of one's conjectures. Sometimes we can determine a total truth - ie a tautology, and other time it will not be true, ie a contradiction. In many ways, this area of study is fairly easy; however, it does get a litt [more]

I have studied logic for six years at the graduate level. I have an M.S. in Logic, Computation, and Methodology of Science, and am finishing a Ph.D. in the area. I have taught both introductory and advanced logic courses at CMU. I've been tutoring in math off-and-on for about 14 years. I started in high school, tutoring my peers in a variety of HS math subjects -- geometry, algebra, trigonometry, and calculus. In college, I continued to tutor in math, but did so for the typical college math courses -- algebra, discrete math, and calculus. I built a reputation as an easygoing but effective tuto [more]

Among the favorite topics in high school algebra/geometry for a tutor with an MS degree in Applied Mathematics and Statistics, I can help mathematical students with tautologies and logic laws/proofs. I am motivated by the ability to see others understand aspects in life better. This takes hard work and dedication in order to ensure success on both ends. I truly enjoyed the positive impacts I made on students while teaching 2 semesters of pre-calculus/calculus recitation sections and tutoring mathematics for over 3 years. Creativity was expanded through my passion of sign language incorporation [more]

In the summer of 2014, I taught logic concepts to seventh and eighth grade students while working as a teaching assistant for a course in Paradoxes and Infinities with the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth. I hold a bachelor's degree in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and have three years of experience tutoring college math courses including logic. Hello, I'm Keith! I'm a graduate student at the Carnegie Mellon University Language Technologies Institute. I have over five years' combined tutoring experience including three years at the University of Wisconsin-M [more]

I have a B.S. in pure mathematics from Indiana University with a GPA of 3.6/4.0. One class that I took was P105: Logic and Reasoning. It's a Philosophy class, instead of a math class, but there you go. It's a class in college-level formal logic. I got an A. I love math. I love teaching it. I find it intrinsically satisfying to see the light come on in a student's eyes. My first math lesson that I taught was when I was 5. My neighbor, still in diapers, kept skipping 4 when counting from 1 to 10. I worked with him until he could get all 10 numbers in a row, and match them up with his [more]

I find programming on a computer and designing a digital circuits to use the logic. Logic is a system or set of principles underlying the arrangements of elements in a computer or electronic device so as to perform a specified task. I have taken Logic and Computer Design Fundamentals during my graduate level courses. I have taken Digital Design Principle & Practices that included the study of combinational logic design principles during my undergraduate courses. I believe that my undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering and graduate degree in Computer Science and Engineering has prepar [more]
