Hi! My name is Archie, and I LOVE math (math is FUN!)! I have loved math since I was in second grade. I loved math so much that in my senior year in high school, I took AP Calculus AB and AP Calculus BC at the same time, and then majored in math in college, and went on to grad school to learn as much math as I could! I earned my bachelor's degree in mathematics (with a minor in computer science) from the University of San Diego (USD) and my doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in mathematics from the U... [more]
I am qualified to tutor in Discrete Math because I am a mathematician (specifically, a number theorist). Discrete Math includes a number of distinct areas of study such as mathematical logic, set theory, number theory, combinatorics, graph theory, and mathematical relations. My graduate work was in number theory and graph theory. I also took combinatorics in grad school. I tutored a high school student in Discrete Math recently.
I am qualified to tutor in Differential Equations because I took the Differential Equations course at USD as an undergrad. I was also a Teaching Assistant for the Differential Equations course at UCSD for several quarters. I am currently tutoring a student in Partial Differential Equations.
I am qualified to tutor in SAS because I have been using SAS since 1999. I worked as a SAS programmer for several companies. I am the vice president of a local SAS Users Group.
I am qualified to tutor in CBEST (Math) because the skill areas being tested are estimation, measurement statistical principles, computation, problem solving, numerical, and graphic relationships. These skill areas are well within my capabilities as a mathematician. I have tutored students in similar tests such as SAT Math and TEAS (Math).
I am qualified to tutor in ISEE (Math) because the skill areas being tested are found in arithmetic through pre-calculus. These skill areas are well within my capabilities as a mathematician. I have tutored students in ISEE (Math). I use the Socratic or inquiry method of teaching so that students can arrive at their own conclusions and build knowledge.
I taught Linear Algebra at a university this semester (Spring 2016). I will also be teaching Linear Algebra at a community college this summer. As a math major, I took Linear Algebra as one of my classes and did very well in it.
I am qualified to tutor in MATLAB because I used it while I was in grad school. I used MATLAB to calculate the eigenvalues of the adjacency matrices of the graphs for my dissertation. I also used it in college for plotting graphs in Calculus 3.
I am qualified to tutor in TEAS (Math) because the skill areas being tested are basic math skills such as whole numbers, fractions, decimals, ratios, proportions, percents, geometry, measurement, probability, statistics, equations, inequalities, exponents, polynomials, and radicals. These skill areas are within my capabilities as a mathematician. I have tutored students in tests such as SAT Math, GRE Math, and TEAS (Math).
I am qualified to tutor in Mathematica because I used it while I was in grad school. I used Mathematica to plot graphs for my dissertation. I also used it in college for plotting graphs in Calculus 3.
I taught Discrete Math this semester (Spring 2016) and last semester (Fall 2015). Among the finite math topics, I covered logic, sets, counting, I also taught Linear Algebra this semester, where I covered vectors and matrices. I also covered vectors in my Calculus III class this semester.
