Perhaps the most counter-intuitive subject that you will encounter in your academic career will be probability. Since kindergarten, mathematics has been framed in definite terms with no room for interpretation. Although the discipline of probability attempts to quantify uncertainty (and does so incredibly well), interpretation of the results obtained requires a firm understanding of the assumptions and conditions that underly the particular method of quantification used. With my wealth of supplemental materials at your disposal, and my ability to convey the mechanics of probability in a simple [more]

I have many years of classroom teaching at universities and tutoring experience with Probability and Statistics. I have a PhD in mathematics and a BS in engineering. I have over 10 years of classroom experience, I taught statistics and calculus at University of Maryland before having my kids. Now, I teach at at local colleges. I have been doing paid and unpaid tutoring for 25 years now. My son became a doctor in the army, he also has a degree in Biochemical engineering. My daughter graduated from UC Berkeley Energy Engineering. I always volunteered at my children's schools. Now that my chil [more]

I studied probability as part of my degree plan at UT, and use it extensively in statistics as well. The study of probability is largely about 1. counting methods, often studied in discrete math classes, and 2. learning the various types of distributions commonly used in modeling data: exponential, normal, gamma, uniform, etc,, including the important aspects of each type of distribution, such as mean, standard deviation, memorylessness, etc. Often sophisticated calculus techniques are required as well. As a graduate in math from UT, I am well-acquainted with these aspects of the class. [more]

I started tutoring and teaching as a way to support myself in college and graduate school. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from Guilford College, a Masters in Geoscience from Harvard University and a Ph.D. from Stony Brook University. My students averaged a grade of A- per semester at both Harvard and Stony Brook. As a research scientist I found that I miss the interaction with students, especially that moment when they grasp a difficult concept or acquire a skill they ... [more]

TUTORING PHILOSOPHY Having taught over 1000 high school students while teaching math at St. Michael's Catholic Academy, I have found that each student, regardless of age (middle school, high school or even post-secondary) is a unique person who has their own learning style. The key to successful learning via tutoring is to identify that style and use it motivate the student to gain knowledge. There are two major components to my teaching style: whenever possible: 1. provide more than on... [more]

I believe that tutoring should be done with a goal in mind. It should be a choice that the student makes not the parent and should not be a stressful event. I enjoy working with teenagers and I also enjoy science and math. I teach thinking skills, organizational skills, and help students learn to ask for what they need to succeed. I have an undergraduate degree in physics from Carnegie Mellon University and a masters in molecular genetics and biochemistry from the University of Pittsbur... [more]

My passion for teaching began during my undergraduate years at University of Nebraska - Lincoln after tutoring dorm-mates and participating in the university?s approved teaching internship where I taught AP calculus and AP physics at two Lincoln high schools: Pius X and Parkview, on a prearranged, alternate basis, with a permanent S.T.E.M. faculty member (100+ verifiable hours). I received my Bachelor?s degree in physics with a minor in mathematics (Class of 2013) which includes algebra thro... [more]
