Hi, I'm Damon. I genuinely enjoy sharing my enthusiasm about math and view it as a mission to help improve math's reputation among the topics of study. I started tutoring as a math grad student working on my PhD, and continued on during and after my academic teaching. In many ways I prefer tutoring to teaching in a traditional classroom setting, because while tutoring I have the luxury of being able to respond specifically to a student?s concerns and craft my message for just one student a...

I've tutored and taught Algebra 1 many times.
Calculus is one of my favorite subjects to tutor. I have taught it at the college level many times and worked in the textbook and curriculum development fields on making calculus more fun and accessible for all students.
I have tutored and taught discrete math many times, and it's one of my favorite subjects.
I have taught and tutored college level differential equations many times, helping students make sense of first-order equations, second-order linear equations, Laplace transforms, homogenous equations, and the like. Although there is a lot of material to keep track of in a typical first differential equations course, a solid background in calculus will go a long way toward success.
Since my first undergraduate course in linear algebra, and on through graduate school, linear algebra has always been one of my favorite subjects. I have tutored many linear algebra students on the ins and outs of matrix arithmetic, Gauss-Jordan elimination, linear transformations and vector spaces. I have also taught several college linear algebra courses over the years.
I am available to tutor introductory through advanced logic and set theory. Having taught logic at the college level many times over the years and worked on developing logic sections for college math textbooks, I enjoy the opportunity to work as logic tutor and make the subject as fun and accessible as I know it can be.
