I have 4 years of experience teaching an online geometry course heavily based on logic. This course is proof-based and all assignments are submitted as formal proofs or logic tables. I have also tutored college level into to logic courses. Hi! I am Michelle. I went to school in New York at SUNY Old Westbury. While obtaining my degree in Mathematics, I also completed many education courses. I went on to San Francisco State University to work on my Master's Degree in Mathematics. I am currently an Adjunct Math Professor in the Los Rios Community College district. I have been tutoring mathemati [more]

I have a BS degree in Math from Michigan State U, a Master's in Computer Systems from Air Force Institute of Technology, and completed PhD coursework in Geophysics at U.C. Berkeley. Although I haven't taught any students in Logic, my years as a computer programmer for the US Air Force made me amply familiar with the vagaries of logic (and how easy it was to get it wrong). At one point, I programmed database selection logic using an easy for the user to understand method I invented myself, rather than using the common Polish select notation. At other times, I helped users build email sieves [more]

I have advanced degrees in Electrical Engineering. Digital systems design and management is based on the Boolean algebra and symbolic logic. I applied the principles during eight years as an electrical engineer at one of the premier design centers in the world. In addition, I have taken multiple courses in logic both mathematical and philosophical. I am an adjunct professor and am well-versed in the pedagogical methods needed to tutor this discipline. I'm an expert in working with students to develop skills and to understand concepts. My expertise is especially strong in problem solving, [more]

At the beginning of the first semester for Geometry, I always spend two weeks on logic with my students to introduce the idea of how proof works. We work on If and then statements, Modus Ponen, Modus Tollen, Disjunctive Syllogism, and Simplification along with the truth table which will lead into writing a proof using statement and reason. A little about my background. I graduated from SF state as a math major and then from their credentials program. During my undergrad, I tutored for two tutorial centers on campus and that lead into my career as a teacher. After I got my credentials, I immedi [more]

I studied logic as part of my computer engineering curriculum. As a data engineer, logic is a fundamental skill for me. I use it frequently in my work and for higher level concepts that build on it. I also help people, ranging from high school students to adult learners, regularly with logic, whether they are just learning it, enhancing their skills, or preparing for an exam. And I completed my B.S. in Computer Engineering at the University of Virginia. I specialize in teaching and tutoring computer science, math, and physics. Over the past five years, I have successfully worked with a variety [more]

Over the last semester, I took a course in Discrete Math at Mills College. Part of this course was a discussion of logic and set theory. I feel confident in my understanding of logic and in my ability to tutor others in this subject. I am received a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics from Mills College, and am now working for an arts nonprofit with youth in Oakland. Before college, I never would have guessed that I would end up studying math, but a really great experience with a professor at Mills changed my mind. I believe that students tend to be scared of math because it isn't always taugh [more]

I have been a professional math tutor for more than 30 years, and in that time I have tutored a number of students in the area of Symbolic Logic; currently I am in the process of writing an Introduction to Symbolic Logic. Logic has always come very naturally to me; I began studying it when I was 12 years old (which was a long time ago!). In the course of pursuing my bachelor's degree in Mathematics, I took (and earned A's in) two separate courses in Logic, one offered by the Math department and the other by the Philosophy department. Some of the topics covered in those courses were: Logical [more]

Math majors are required to take a class called Methods of Proof. The curriculum of this class includes a section on logical statements, truth tables, etc. This class, along with the entirety of upper division math curriculum, focuses on logical processes and proof based problem solving. I have been tutoring math for over five years, most recently as a tutor for Cal Poly's math department. My favorite part of any tutoring session is the buildup to the "Aha!" moment. I believe that building up to that moment is the most important, as it represents the learning process. If a student excels in th [more]

I learned formal logic as part of my mathematical education and I additionally studied the use of logic as part of set theory and computer science. Logic supports the understanding of basics and limitations of theories like math, sciences, and philosophy. I hold a M.S. in Mathematics and an interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Mathematics, Computer Science, and Physics. Over time I have been working at colleges and universities in Germany, in France, and in the U.S. In addition I worked for a decade at research labs in Germany and in the U.S. (LBNL) and at a risk modeling company. Since 2010 I dedicate [more]

I have years of experience tutoring, including tutoring philosophy. I also received an A+ in my introduction to formal logic course, a score that required me to earn a curved score above 100%. I have an intuitive and comprehensive understanding of Semantic, Syntactic, and Predicate logic as well as significant experience with Modal logic. Hi, I'm Mike. I've been a professional tutor since September of 2011, teaching English and mathematics to children from third to eighth grade and test prep, composition, comprehension, and mathematics (through pre-calculus) and organization and study skills t [more]
