I want you to enjoy these sessions too, or at a minimum, feel good about them. I enjoy Mathematics and Logic, and the opportunity to review, discuss, and learn is always welcome.

I've tutored both Math and Computer Science in the past. I've also been a teacher at the college level. I enjoy sharing information, and find tutoring to be both fun and rewarding. Professionally, I'm a Software Systems Engineer, with a variety of different projects in my background. I enjoy solving problems, and sharing knowledge. In my career I've had the responsibility to train junior engineers, which has always been fun. I find when ever teaching, you learn as well.

My background is that I was a double major in college, Computer Science and Mathematics. I was a Math major just because Math was fun. When tutoring, patience, and asking questions is the name of the game. I'm willing to step through things repeatedly if required. I'm a bit old school in that I believe you need to understand why things work. It's important to have an idea if the answer you're looking at is reasonable.

As for logic I've had some symbolic logic classes in college, along with the fact that I work with computers and deal with logic at some level or another on a regular basis. I enjoyed symbolic logic and have found it useful when dealing with computers at the byte and bit level, which I've also had to do several different times.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I have a sincere fondness for mathematics, in fact it is the only reason one of my two majors in college was mathematics. I'm a software systems engineer by trade. I enjoy sharing knowledge. I've been a teacher and a tutor in the past.

Algebra 2

I've been a teacher and a tutor in the past. I have a sincere fondness for mathematics; in fact it is the only reason one of my two majors in college was mathematics. I'm a software systems engineer by trade. I enjoy sharing knowledge.

Geometry

Logic

I've taken symbolic logic classes in College. Also, and likely more relevant, I'm a software engineer and write programs for a living. I deal with the "logic" of how to get what I want on a regular basis.
