All of Sidney’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Sidney’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Linear Algebra

I have taken a linear algebra course (MATH0540) from the math department at Brown University. In addition to this course I have experience with linear algebra in mathematical physics courses, programming courses, and applied mathematics courses. I can teach this material at the level of abstract proofs or at the simpler level of numerical matrix operations you might encounter in high school. I am also familiar with Dirac's notation.

Logic

I have a degree in "Logic and the Philosophy of Science" from Brown University; thus, I have familiarity with mathematical logic as well as a general knowledge of argumentation, proof methods, rhetoric, and logical fallacies. I can teach you how to construct good arguments for papers/essays. I am also willing to work as an editor/consultant.

Study Skills

Working with the College Guidance Project at Brown University and at KAA Prep in Queens, I have acquired experience in teaching/promoting academic management, explaining the college admissions process, coordinating student schedules, and enforcing work completion while instilling discipline.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
