I studied theoretical mathematics and philosophy at MIT and Harvard, where I specialized in the philosophy of logic, math, science, and language. I've taught logic for more than ten years, including basic courses in critical thinking, standard courses on propositional and predicate logic, and advanced courses on metalogic (including Godel's theorems) and the history and philosophy of logic. 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 [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 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.

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]

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 Neuroscientist at the Boston University School of Medicine. I am currently researching new ways to treat Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Diseases. I'd like to help kids get interested and excited about school by showing them it can lead to interesting and "cool" places [more]

I have a Master's in Electrical Engineering which is math, physics, and logic intensive. I also have a BS, which required learning computer programming in general. Assuming this is like Digital logic, I had lots of classes in my BSEE and more in the MSEE, and used it a lot in my career as an engineer. Doing software engineering, logic is common use. Logic (AND, OR, NOT, XOR, etcetera) are in almost everything application such as excel, access, lots. I have experience teaching for more than 30 years part time as I worked full time applying what I teach in industry. I have a Master's in Electric [more]

I earned a PhD. in Mathematics from SUNY at StonyBrook in 1979. I majored in Differential Geometry and minored in Partial Differential Equations. Unless you want me to tutor Godel's "incompleteness theorem", a PhD in Math should have more than enough qualification to teach Logic. I will start with set theory and mathematical logic. The ability of learning math is an intrinsic human characteristic. People might born with different ability to do math. Judging from the way the math is taught in most of our schools, on average, it is not your fault that you are not fully use your ability. I can [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 have taken and passed the Stanford AI class. Unit 7 was on propositional logic and truth tables. I was a Lecturer for 5 years at Hesser College and Chester College in multiple subjects. Before teaching, I spent 10+ years as a vision researcher at Harvard and its affiliates. In addition to teaching at the college level, I also homeschooled my son through middle school using an accredited curriculum. His exemplary test scores for curriculum progress and the ISEE standardized tests demonstrated both his learning and my teaching ability in all middle school subject matter. I am a patient... [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]
