While mathematics is the quintessential coherent internally consistent abstract logical system, I like emphasizing its practical applications.
I've tutored math at Wallenberg Traditional H.S., SFSU, HSU, CCSF, and also done voluntary tutoring. I tutored mostly in calculus, algebra, trigonometry, plane geometry, etc. I can also tutor in ordinary differential equations and basic chemistry.
Additionally, I have a portfolio of mathematical proofs, and solved problems in advanced mathematileics I've worked out. Recently I completed all requirements for the BA in mathematics. I'll receive the BA in 2013. I have a great deal to offer students in the way of a good education in mathematics.
I also like to mention, appropriately, some of the giants in mathematics, e.g., I. Newton, G.W. Leibniz, Leonhard Euler, and others. During the 20th century I consider Cassius J. Keyser to be one outstanding mathematician. While my tutoring will not focus on a history of mathematics, it is a good idea for students to have a sense of the origins and development of key mathematical concepts.
I grew up in Palm Springs, California. I've lived in the Bay Area for about 15 years.
