I taught undergraduate math and statistics courses at UC Berkeley for about six years while I was a doctoral student. During that time I had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of students at very different levels. I'm just as happy helping out students who just need to pass as I am working with students who are striving for that A+. I'm passionate about math and about teaching. My favorite part of graduate school was getting the chance to work with students one-on-one. Working ... [more]
I was a TA for courses that involved differential equations for seven semesters at UC Berkeley. I spent a lot of time working with differential equations in my research as a PhD student. Differential equations can be really exciting once you realize that they can change the way you understand the world. I'd be happy to help make that happen.
I was a TA for linear algebra for two semesters at UC Berkeley. Linear algebra comes up all the time in every area of mathematical research. In fact, my dissertation used a lot of really fancy linear algebra. Whether you need help figuring out what's going on with row reduction or trying to get a conceptual understanding of Jordan form, I can help.
