I graduated from Missouri University of Science & Technology in December 2005 with a degree in mathematics. I have taken the following classes; Calculus I, II, & III, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Physics I & II, Advanced Linear Algebra I & II
I work for a large engineering firm in the area, but tutor in math (pre-Algebra up thru Calculus, Diff. EQ, linear Algebra, etc.), physics, logic classes and give excel lessons on the side. For excel, I can help with simple formatting and formulas to complex formulas and simple macros. I currently use MS Excel 2010 on a daily basis, but can teach MS Excel 97, 2010, & 2013.
I will work with you to set goals for your learning and create a plan for you to achieve those goals.
I completed the class discrete mathematics for computer science while in college. The topics covered were logic, proofs, mathematical induction, sets, relations, graph theory etc. I apply this knowledge almost daily when I program in excel. Whenever you make a decision based based on two things happening you apply "and" logic. This is discrete math. Also learning to do proofs is another important lesson for example you see a potential relationship between two things and through induction you prove this is true in all cases instead of just being a coincidental relationship. I like to apply discrete math to real life situations to make it more meaningful and easier to understand.
For my mathematics degree in college one of my concentrated areas of study was linear algebra. The first class covered systems of linear equations, matrices, vector spaces, dot products, linear transformations, determinants and eigenvalues. During linear algebra 2 I studied Jordan normal forms, linear functionals, orthogonal and unitary transformations. In addition I took a graduate level vector and tensor analysis class which was mostly covering vectors. We applied vector differential and integral calculus and applied the Stokes and Gauss theorems. Linear algebra is an extension of solving sets of equations. I strive to teach my students the basic theory behind the math so the solutions make sense rather than just trying to memorize all the steps to get an answer.
Extremely easy to work with. — Michael has hit the ground running with my son's summer school class. Very responsive, and works very well with my son. ...
