During my undergraduate study, I took full quantifier calculus including identity and description in the philosophy department and mathematical logic in the mathematics department. During my graduate studies, I have taken two semesters of Godel-Bernays set theory in the philosophy department and one full year of Zermelo Fraenkel Set theory, including decidability and completeness theory in the mathematics department. I continue to study order relations and order theory on my own. Hi, my name is James. I am an experienced, patient, and personable tutor of science, mathematics, software, and tec [more]

I took symbolic logic in college and received an A. I also had other philosophy classes that taught logic and feel comfortable teaching the subject. I tutored for symbolic logic, via the introduction to advanced math class that was a requirement for the math major. I've written many proofs both in math and philosophy and taught how to do so. I have quite a bit of experience as a teacher, tutor, and trainer in a variety of areas. Through high school and college I was a math tutor and have been tutoring professionally for the past two years around 70 hours each week while my fiancee attends grad [more]

I have taught critical thinking courses at CSU Chico and CSU Fresno. These courses included substantial coverage of topics in propositional logic and predicate calculus. I have done tutoring on logic topics for students in discrete math courses. I studied logic as a grad student at Berkeley. Hi! I'm enthusiastic about helping young people become outstanding students by assisting with writing skills and tutoring in math and physics. I'm most interested in improving reasoning and communication skills essential for academic success. I prefer to work with families and students who value education; [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]

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 used logic throughout my scientific career as a hardware engineer. I also took a professional course on digital logic/electronics. The knowledge gained in this course has been very helpful to me working in the scientific instruments field. I am a bay area graduate (UC Berkeley) who has loved the learning process all my life. I have used my math and science skills throughout my engineering career, and enjoy engaging others in the learning process. Seeing a student smile as they begin to understand a difficult topic is very rewarding. I specialize in tutoring chemistry, math, and phys [more]

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 teach Naval postgraduate students our course EC2820. I start with basic Boolean logic and basic Digital Logic design for and not and or logic then Nand , Nor and xor circuits. We start with exhaustive truth tables. I use DeMorgan's theorem for logical equivalents. Then using storage or memory elements, logic finite state machines. I cover computer science theory of automata with the Turing machines topic. I show how a finite state machine is the basis for a central processing unit (CPU) in today's computer. It fetches, decodes then executes the CPU instructions on its data. [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]
