I have over fifteen years of experience tutoring to high school, college, and graduate students. My specialty lies in tutoring mathematics in several areas such as calculus, elementary/abstract algebra, linear algebra, differential equations, real/complex analysis, and topology. In my experience, I've found that students learn mathematics most efficiently through conceptual-based learning and active engagement in problem solving. Because of this, I will teach you problem solving strategies ... [more]

Algebra 1

In a Collegiate Scholars Program, I taught Algebra to gifted high school students. My approach to teaching Algebra is conceptual. I train my students to make connections between the abstraction of Algebra and real-world applications.

Algebra 2

In a Collegiate Scholars Program, I taught Algebra to gifted high school students. My approach to teaching Algebra is conceptual. I train my students to make connections between the abstraction of Algebra and real-world applications.

Calculus

Having a degree in mathematics, calculus was used throughout my education. In fact, calculus is a tool I use on a day-to-day basis. I've been tutoring the subject for over 10 years.

Geometry

B.S., Benedictine University M.S., University of Chicago

Physics

I studied mathematical physics from the University of Chicago. Particularly, I worked on nonlinear dispersive equations. Techniques from geometric and harmonic analysis are used to understand local and global behavior of solutions in different spaces.

Precalculus

I have a B.S., Benedictine University, and M.S., University of Chicago.

Trigonometry

Having a degree in mathematics, trigonometry was used throughout my education. I've been tutoring trigonometry for over 10 years. I use a conceptual approach, which help students understand periodicity, trigonometric graphs, trig identities, and much more.

SAT Math

ACT Math

Discrete Math

Having earned a master's degree in mathematics, I have the knowledge and experience necessary to teach discrete math. I have taken courses in logic, number theory, probability and statistics, and linear algebra; all these courses are a part of discrete math.

Differential Equations

My area of research lies in the field of nonlinear partial differential equations. I have given a guest lecture on this course, where the focus was on Laplace transforms, convolution, and integro-differential equations. With my extensive knowledge of the subject, I believe I am qualified to tutor differential equations.

Linear Algebra

I have done graduate level work in linear algebra, which helps me see the subject from a broader perspective than someone who has only been exposed to undergraduate linear algebra. I have also tutored linear algebra using conceptual and problem-oriented approaches. In addition, I use linear algebra methods regularly.

Mechanical Engineering

As an undergraduate, I conducted research in geophysical fluid dynamics at PSU. I have experience working with students on engineering statics and dynamics. I have also taught linear circuit analysis to many math, science, and engineering majors.

Finite Math

Having received a master's degree in mathematics, I have the knowledge required to tutor finite math. Notably, I've taken courses in probability and statistics and linear algebra, both of which are a part of finite math. I have over five years experience teaching the subject to college students, using both conceptual and analytic approaches.
