I have a Master's degree in Mathematics with Distinction from Oxford University and a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics with Distinction from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I do math and physics tutoring, standardized test prep, and also have expertise in MATLAB, mathematical modeling, and data analysis. I've been tutoring students in math for the past 22 years. I have tutored students with all levels and abilities. I have taught at the university level, the community college level, an... [more]
I have taken advanced courses in Calculus in college. I have taught AP Calculus AB for two years. I really love teaching Calculus.
I took Math 215 at UIC which is very similar in content to Discrete Math. It is more of a theoretical version of Discrete Math which is more heavy on proofs. I did so well that I was asked by the Dept Head at UIC to be the TA for the class which I did for two semesters. I am very familiar with the concepts in Discrete Math. I recently tutored a student (John) from WyzAnt on Discrete Math and it went very well and he wrote a great review.
I took Math 220 at UIC and got an A in it. This is the intro DiffEQ class. I also took Math 480 and 481 at UIC and got A's in them. These are the more advanced DiffEq classes which include PDEs (Partial Differential Equations). I also took many graduate level DiffEq related classes at Oxford. I have tutored in this subject through the years as well.
I have a Master's Degree in Mathematical Modeling and Scientific Computing from Oxford University. I have been programming since I was a kid. I am experienced with Java and C. I am most well versed in MATLAB programming. I've taken a class in introductory C at Oxford. More importantly, I have a great deal of programming experience, especially in the area of algorithms and mathematical computer science. I am active on Project Euler and am currently in the top 3% of the programmers on this competitive programming site. You can check out Project Euler at https://projecteuler.net/ I want to get qualified in Computer Science on WyzAnt mainly to help students who need help in advanced MCS (Mathematical Computer Science) programming classes where they need to write complex algorithms. I would also love to help programmers who are taking their early steps on Project Euler and need mentorship to move forward in the various problems they have. Thanks!
I took Math 320 at UIC and got an A in it. This is the theoretical Linear Algebra class for math majors. I also took a graduate level Numerical Linear Algebra class in Oxford. I have tutored in this subject through the years as well.
I have a Masters Degree in Mathematical Modeling and Scientific Computing with Distinction from Oxford University. I used MATLAB throughout my graduate studies and most of my Masters thesis was done with MATLAB. Since then, for the past twelve years I have used MATLAB for various research projects relating generally to mathematical modeling within the field of medicine. I am experienced not only with basic functions within MATLAB but also more advanced functions as well as writing software in MATLAB. I worked for a trading firm in downtown Chicago for two years writing algorithms in MATLAB. Finally, I am currently tutoring a PhD student at Northwestern University in MATLAB. We are going through introductory books at the moment and eventually plan on moving onto more advanced MATLAB books. He is really enjoying my teaching and wants to work with me long term.
Finite Math overlaps significantly with Discrete Math. If anything, it is usually a less rigorous version of Discrete Math for social science and business students. I am very familiar with the content and had no trouble tutoring students in Finite Math at UIC. have a Master's Degree in Mathematics with Distinction from Oxford University and a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics with Distinction from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
