As part of my computer science training, I was required to study logic and how it applies to algorithms in computer science. Logic is the building block of all sciences and math, and without understanding it the student will have a hard time in all of those. I also took a philosophy course in logic. I typically teach all concepts of logic from analogies to logical operations and their composition, as well as logic problems and how to solve them using the logical grid. I believe that every student is capable of learning. My goal is to allow them to reach their maximum potential by getting them [more]

My credentials in logic come from the semesters I spent at Fordham University, where taking at least two classes in logic was mandatory. I passed both with very good grades. I can teach students basic logic, syllogisms, "if-then" statements, avoid logical fallacies, and how to draw conclusions by using deductive reasoning. Mathematically, I can help teach students to apply mathematical rules and concepts to their work. Other logic topics I can help with include how to construct a logical argument, how to support a statement, and how to arrive at a correct conclusion. I can also teach the di [more]

I can help you with symbolic logic, sentence logic and predicate logic. I can explain truth functional operators, necessary vs. sufficient conditions, contrapositive - my favorite! - and more. I will explain logic's concepts to you in plain English and everyday analogies (which I make up on the fly), in a way that your teachers and textbooks can't. I will show you techniques for making truth tables easy to do and understand. I will work with you on proofs and show you tips for doing them. I have not taken a formal logic course. But I have a computer science undergraduate degree and mathemati [more]

I have course background and experience in formal logic, as well as mathematical logic, metamathematics, logic in natural-language argumentation, and related topics in philosophy and computer science. From programming and teaching computer logic, I know how to break down logical puzzles into comprehensible pieces. I am aware of classic paradoxes and problems that students at any level can find enjoyable and challenging test cases for their facilities. I am a writer, programmer, and experienced mentor who loves teaching. Harvard College AB in Physics and Philosophy, United States Presidential S [more]

As a philosophy student, I'm familiar with many aspects of logic, both formal and informal. I enjoy teaching informal logic as a part of critical thinking, and I'm trained in symbolic logic. I received an A with credit in the University of Washington's distance course in first-order symbolic logic, which emphasized natural deduction proofs. In graduate school, I received an A+ in modal logic, which emphasized first-order modal proofs using semantic tableaux. I'm Tom. I enjoy helping people improve their skills in a variety of areas. My scores on the SAT, ACT, and GRE are in the 99th percentile [more]

I was a programmer before and I have taken a logic course in my undergrad. I earned an undergraduate degree in information systems from University of Wisconsin Madison. My first job was as a technology analyst. Then I moved to Ernst and Young as a technology consultant. I'm pursuing my MBA degree now at NYU Stern with specialization in finance. I graduated from University of Wisconsin - Madison with an information systems major and a computer science minor. Then I worked for financial companies in New York in a few functions as programmer, data analyst and technology consultant. Currently I'm [more]

I have taught Logic both as a mathematics course and a philosophy course at Touro College. In mathematics I cover set theory, propositional and predicate logic. Philosophy course focuses mostly on reasoning, syllogisms, inductive and deductive methods, fallacies, etc. While programming is my profession, teaching is my passion. Having graduated with a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Chicago, I have continuously taught mathematics and computer science at a college level for over 40 years while working as programmer. When my children were in high school and college I have often tut [more]

As an undergraduate physics and math major I took a course in Symbolic Logic which is the course most undergraduate students will take. This course includes constructing logical statements using "or", "and" "implies" and negatives of these. The course also constructs truth tables. As a graduate math student I took a one year course in mathematical logic. This course included predicate calculus, recursive functions and Godel's Incompleteness theorem. I have taught all levels of math from precalculus to graduate level. I have extensive experience with algebra I and II, calculus, AP calculus [more]

I've tutored students in propositional, predicate, and modal logic for several years. My method is to instill mastery in the basic logical forms and reinforce their application with examples. I have also taken philosophy and logic courses during my undergraduate studies. I have been teaching and tutoring mathematics, chemistry, biology, and physics, and preparing students for the SAT and ACT for many years. I also specialize in physics and chemistry olympiads, the biology olympiad (USABO), and math competitions (especially the AMC, AIME, and USAMO). In addition to my many private students, I h [more]

I minored in Logic and got all A?s in the courses. I have tutored logic extensively - both basic and advanced Logic. I am well versed in the concepts involved and am adept in clarifying the basic ideas: logical truth and falsehood, logical equivalence, consistency and validity. I can shed light on propositional logic, show how to evaluate for the different logical properties using regular and short truth tables as well as truth trees. For predicate logic, we will again rely on truth trees as well as the construction of interpretations. I show the student how to become more adept at determ [more]
