I first had a formal logic class in high school, which focused more on the language aspect of logic than the mathematical side of it. As part of the series of classes I took in discrete math at Caltech, there was an entire term dedicated to the math of logic, how to manipulate syllogisms, relationships, and other kinds of logical statements with mathematical precision. This in turn helped me tutor proof-based subjects such as geometry. Hi, my name is Grant. I graduated from the California Institute of Technology in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied and Computational Math. After [more]

A study of Logic includes both the modes of reasoning and the use of valid reasoning. Logic is used in most intellectual activities, including philosophy, science, mathematics and computer programming. Logic examines general forms of arguments. Within mathematics, it is the study of valid inferences. Aristotle established logic as a formal discipline, giving it a fundamental place in philosophy. In addition to learning about the history of logic in the study of ancient philosophy, I also studied the practical application of logic and reasoning with several other college courses including Ad [more]

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]

I am qualified in logic - generally - given my minor in philosophy completed at Boston College in May 2015. I am qualified - specifically - given my course grade "A" in the course "Logic", which I completed during my third year of study. In addition to this introductory course, I earned an "A-" in the course "Charles S. Pierce", which (as the name suggests) was dedicated to the study of American logician Charles S. Pierce. I have since continued to study logic, largely in preparation for the October 2015 LSAT, on which I scored in the 90th percentile. [more]

I was a philosophy minor, and as such practiced constructing logical arguments. Additionally, I took a formal logic class in which the teacher recommended I tutor other students in the class, a discrete mathematical class to study mathematical logic, and I've had some experience with electrical logic constructions used for my physics research and classes. I recently graduated Muhlenberg College with a degree in physics with multiple research experiences including working at Brookhaven National Laboratory and the University of Illinois studying nuclear physics and using the Muhlenberg telescop [more]

Logic used to be part of the NYS Geometry curriculum and it was on the NYS regents exam. I've taught logic for 6 years. I've been teaching for nearly 10 years - I began at a Catholic Prep school for 5 years and then I taught at a public school in Massachusetts. I've also worked at the Massachusetts DOE where I wrote and edited the math MCAS exams (similar to the NYS Regents exams) and helped edit the PARCC exams. I enjoy teaching and helping students understand and master challenging topics. Former students say that I can explain things really well, that I break things down into step-b [more]

In obtaining my BS in mathematics, I was required to complete a "transition to higher math" course. This course included the basic concepts of logic, stressing those necessary to do mathematical proofs. In completing my master's degree in math (Binghamton University), as well as in PhD courses I have taken at Penn State and Binghamton U, I have continued to put these concepts of logic into practice. In addition, I have taught many aspects of logic in college courses on Discrete Math (at Penn State Wilkes-Barre) and Finite Math (at Penn State University Park) These courses included basic pr [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]

In my Engineering career as programmer, hardware designer, and systems integrator, I used all aspects of logic on a daily basis. A related Engineering course I have taken at Rutgers is called "Logic Design", and applies the functions 'AND', 'OR', 'XOR', 'NAND', 'NOR', etc. From a science/engineering point of view, computer programs and digital devices use logic to produce an output based on a set of inputs. Logic controls the "path of operations" through a running program or application, and is usually based on a set of rules. A simple example of the logic I have implemented using di [more]

I have tutored others on forming sound and valid arguments with what I have learned from my philosophy classes. I received an A for a course in symbolic logic and have found uses for it over the years when teaching mathematics. Logic is an incredibly useful science in its own right and my approach to teaching the subject is illustrated by highlighting its use in philosophy and the hard sciences. Hi! I'm currently taking on students who are interested in mathematics and physics! I have helped hundreds of students from a broad spectrum of talents and intentions reach their academic goals over t [more]
