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]

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 took a course on advanced mathematical proofs in college in which we had to apply logic in order to solve them. I also received an A in my 2000 level Philosophy class on Elementary Logic. Logic is all about being able to break down the reasoning in problems or thinking and as a tutor, I try to make logic stick with my students by teaching them how the rules are related. My favorite thing about tutoring is seeing concepts finally click for students like you. I absolutely love those "aha" moments because it makes all of my effort as a tutor worthwhile. I have been tutoring since high school wo [more]

In addition to taking symbolic logic while in college, I have a BA in mathematics with an additional concentration in computer science. The technical side of my professional career encompasses business, technical and system software development as well as, most recently, predictive analytics. All of these require a strong understanding of theoretical and applied logic. I am a graduate of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA with a bachelors in mathematics, and additional concentrations in computer science, business and psychology. I completed a significant portion of the coursewor [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 have studied Formal Logic in both High School and at Saint Mary's College. During this time I spent a lot of time helping my fellow students gain competency and proficiency. Aside from directly studying Logic, my studies have always been of a logical nature, especially in college. I studied the Geometries of Euclid, Ptolemy, and Descartes which are focused on the logical structure of proofs. And I assisted students as I did with Formal Logic. I graduated with a major in Philosophy with a thesis that my adviser, Prof. Steven Cortright, called "One of the best theses he has read in twenty yea [more]

I studied philosophy for many years as an undergraduate and graduate student. I have taken courses in basic logic. I have taught logic as a part of Critical Thinking courses. I have taught several college-level courses in philosophy and served as a teaching assistant for many more. I also have experience working as a writing center associate and a tutor. Philosophy is my passion and I genuinely enjoy helping others understand it better. I have a BA in philosophy and psychology, an MA in philosophy, and until recently I was pursuing a PhD in philosophy at Brown University. All in all I can [more]

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 have been tutoring mathematics courses for more than 14 years: private tutoring, working for learning centers, or [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]

I took philosophy of logic and symbolic logic in summer and fall 2013, respectively. I led peer study groups in each class and tutored symbolic logic for a semester. I am a recent graduate from UC Davis, where I studied chemical physics and minored in human physiology and neuroscience. I have two years experience tutoring k-6 in math and reading, and three years experience tutoring college students in chemistry and math. I received a 32 on the old MCAT but I'm taking time before entering medical school to raise my son.... [more]
