I love it when my student's understand a new concept. Their eyes light up, they smile at me and say, "but that's easy!" Most students ... [more]
I have a BS degree in Math from Michigan State U, a Master's in Computer Systems from Ais Force Institute of Technology, and completed PhD coursework in Geophysics at U.C. Berkeley. I have tutored two students so far in Basic Calculus including differential equations and Integration. My basic method was to make sure they understood what differentiation and integration were and how they worked before moving on to using all the shortcuts.
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 to select all the incoming mail that they needed to see, while screening out the rest.
