I studied theoretical math at MIT, where I took courses in formal logic---which covered everything from the metatheory of propositional and predicate logic to Godel's incompleteness theorems and computability. I'm also currently enrolled as a master's student in philosophy at Tufts. I specialize in rigorous, high-level academic tutoring, test preparation, and enrichment for high school, college, and graduate students. I have ten years and thousands of hours of experience with students around the world. BIO: I studied theoretical math, literature, and philosophy at MIT and Harvard. My interest [more]

I have worked with and taught logic, in a variety of forms, since the 1970?s. As a student, I mastered the specifics behind inductive reasoning and deductive reasoning, and soon able to tutor other students in these disciplines. In the decades since that time, I have taken every opportunity to not only apply these techniques to data analysis and computer programming, but also to educate others in the techniques. Hi, my name is Steve, and I have enjoyed teaching for decades. Each individual student is entitled to a personal commitment from every tutor: to identify the challenge facing the stu [more]

I took mathematical logic during my undergraduate education. The topics included boolean algebra, theorem proving via rules of inference, and later, equation logic. Part of the curriculum revolved around proving certain major results, including the completeness theorem for boolean algebra, and the compactness theorem. I helped a number of students with solving logic problems. I emphasize the fact that practicing logic strengthens one's ability to think in many different school disciplines. I also mention that solving many puzzles, which many of us like doing in our spare time, requires logical [more]

As a student of philosophy, first as an undergraduate major in philosophy at Reed College, and now as a PhD student in philosophy at Harvard University, I have been required to take courses in logic. I have taught and graded logic as well. At Reed, I took one course in first-order logic, including soundness and completeness, as well as a course in modal logic. I received As in both courses. In my last year at Reed, I worked as a tutor and grader for the aforementioned course in first-order logic. While at Harvard, I took another course in first-order logic, and again received an A.

I was enrolled for two years in a math graduate program in logic. As an undergraduate I majored in philosophy, with an emphasis on logic. I scored perfect on the GRE quantitative reasoning test. I am driven by the challenge of helping every student to succeed. Most recently I have done this at the secondary level as a public charter school teacher. Prior to that, alongside my own doctoral work in mathematics, I taught and assistant-taught college-level math classes, from remedial Calculus to Multivariate Calculus. Helping students discover math themselves is the subject of the PROMYS program [more]

I placed into advanced geometry w/ logic and passed with an A as a high school student in Barrington High School (BHS). As an undergraduate at Lyndon State College (LSC), I earned highest marks in every course of pure mathematics such as sets logic & proof, abstract algebra, geometry w/ complex numbers and real analysis. These courses demanded the composition of rigorous arguments and required an in-depth understanding of symbolic logic. Knowledge of truth values, truth tables, negations, conjunctions, disjunctions, DeMorgan's Laws, implications, biconditionals, contrapositives, converses, tau [more]

As a Java programmer at the Graduate level, logical fallacies are my pet peeve. I have studied symbolic logic since an undergrad, which has given me the ability to express phrases as variables and operators. I additionally have a pragmatic, objective view of life which is another take on the word "logic". My name is Craig and I am a graduate student at the Boston University School of Medicine. I am currently researching a new technology to help alleviate pain among cancer patients and burn victims. I'd like to help kids get interested and excited about school by showing them it can lead to int [more]

I was an Applied Math major and was required to take Logic as a precursor to Discrete Math. I received a 100% in this course, have used the material in Discrete Math and Abstract Algebra, and have provided corrections to the answers of our classroom text to the instructor. I use this material when tutoring Discrete Math and Abstract Algebra. I have a degree in Applied Mathematics from Southern New Hampshire University. I have been a tutor for 20 years, specializing in standardized tests, high school and college math, high school science, college physics, and tutoring many other subjects includ [more]

I earned a PhD. in Mathematics from SUNY at StonyBrook in 1979. I majored in Differential Geometry and minored in Partial Differential Equations. Unless you want me to tutor Godel's "incompleteness theorem", a PhD in Math should have more than enough qualification to teach Logic. I will start with set theory and mathematical logic. The ability of learning math is an intrinsic human characteristic. People might born with different ability to do math. Judging from the way the math is taught in most of our schools, on average, it is not your fault that you are not fully use your ability. I can [more]

All of proof-based mathematics lies atop of first order logic, that is, propositional logic with predicates, and quantifiers. This language has become natural to me in the course of earning two B.S. degrees in Math and Physics. I successfully completed the most difficult logic and discrete math class available at my university, and now tutor other pure math majors taking the same course. Logic courses are often taught in the context of discrete structures, the theory of computation, or algebra and number theory. My experience in these tangential subjects helps students to succeed in their part [more]
