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]

Logic is a diverse field. For different subjects, it can mean different things. In discrete math, it means deductive reasoning. In programming, it is the flow of commands. In philosophy, it is the one aspect to the study of knowledge. For the normal person, it's the idea of common sense. Regardless of the style of logic you want help with, I've seen it and helped with it and look forward to aiding you as well. I am a certified tutor with eight years of experience as a private full-time tutor, and I was a public tutor for almost one year. Tutoring is my passion in life. My specialty is advance [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 studied mathematical logic as a graduate student and wrote my dissertation in that field. At the college level, I have taught the "Chapter 0" course that helps lower division math students acquire the skills they need to succeed in upper division courses. Much of this involves understanding propositional logic, sentential logic with quantifiers, and basic theorem-proving techniques. I have a PhD in mathematics and have been teaching math for over 25 years, both at the college and high school levels. I am currently a full-time mathematics teacher at a private school, and am available for s [more]

I earned a B+ in my formal logic class in college. We did syllogisms, negations, propositions, modus tollens, modus ponens, etc. I really enjoyed it and it was used in every other math class I took as a math major. I have 4 years of experience teaching math. One at a private school, 3 at a charter school, and this fall (2018) I began teaching at North East High School. I have tutored through various companies that whole time as well. On May 16th, 2009, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics and a minor in statistics from Penn State Erie, the Behrend College. On May 14, 2 [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]

I have had Logic as part of curriculum for both undergrad and grad requirements. I have since then tutored students in this particular subject. I have also gone through teaching workshop for logic at Jackson College where we have incorporated logic just recently as part of one of our courses last year. For the past 5 years, I have been working part-time as an adjunct math faculty member at a local community college. I have been teaching various math courses ranging from beginning algebra to pre-calculus, both online and in a classroom environment. I am a certified online instructor. Prior to t [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]

The symbolic logic basis to the Physical Sciences is rooted in Modus Ponens. Consider P /\ (P=>Q) =>Q. An hypothesis 'P' with the implication that 'Q' follows from 'P' then states that if 'P' has existence, and that existence implies a 'Q', then 'Q' necessarily follows. "it is raining outside" and if "It is raining outside" then "the sidewalks are wet". Reality: "It is raining outside, therefore "wet sidewalks" follows. As a degreed Master of Science student in both Pure and Applied Mathematics, my course work included proving theorems using the machinery of Symbolic Logic. This involved [more]
