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 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 a BA in Mathematics from UC Berkeley, where I also did Physics and Computer Science. My specialty was Logic, Foundations, and Metamathematics. For over 2000 years, Logic was the study of how to win arguments, as taught by the ancient Greeks. ("All men are mortals. Socrates is a man. Therefore Socrates is a mortal.") Then, around the year 1900, mathematicians started to realize that the subject could be greatly expanded, that there were gaps in it as it had been taught, and that it was fundamental not just to argument but to all of mathematics and ... well, EVERYTHING! In the 20 [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 a junior at Mills College, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics. 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 taught well. However, I also believe that there truly is n [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 my bachelor of science in electrical and computer engineering from the University of California, Davis. The major involves heavily on logic background. I have also taken the related courses for the logic both at UC Davis, and Diablo Valley College(DVC), Pleasant Hill, CA campus. I have graduated with double major in Electrical and Computer Engineering from UC Davis. Ever since I took math class at elementary school, I loved learning math. I was always the first person in the class to raise my hand to answer the teacher questions. I was so curious in learning multiple ways of approaching [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]

I have taken and tutored mathematical logic, philosophical logic, symbolic logic, and programming logic as well as many classes that they are prerequisite classes for. For example, I have taken linear algebra, abstract algebra, advanced calculus, number theory, graduate numerical linear algebra, graduate mathematical physics, graduate complex analysis, philosophy of spacetime. The research projects I am working on are well above the level of undergraduate logic of the aforementioned types. I won the Robert Long Prize for a logic paper I wrote. [more]
