My name is Ryan M. I graduated from Manhattan College in May 2011 with a B.S in mathematics. I have done private tutoring since I graduated high school in 2007, and I even did some private tutoring while in high school in order to maintain membership in the national science honor society. I have tutored a wide variety of subjects, ranging from grade school up to and including college mathematics.

Tutoring has helped me become better at doing mathematics, because it forces me to find new ways of thinking about concepts. It also challenges me to gather my ideas in such a way that I am able to express them in a coherent manner to the student.

Tutoring students from all different ages poses new challenges. Yes, as you progress in the mathematical world, concepts become more involved and abstract. This is the challenge I face while teaching a students at the high school and college level. However, teaching students at the grade school level poses a much different and interesting obstacle. While the concepts may be less involved at that level, I am forced to find adequate language in order to explain these concepts to them.

As of right now I am studying to be an actuary. I have passed exams P/1 and FM/2 and am currently studying for exam MFE.

Calculus

Calculus is a very fascinating subject. Calculus, at its most basic level, has to do with the notion of a limit. The limit tells us what value a function or even a sequence approaches as the index approaches some value. In basic terms, it is a the tendency of the function for the that index value.

One of my favorite areas of Mathematics is Analysis. Analysis is the rigorous treatment and development of Calculus. It arrived about 200 years after Newton's discovery of Calculus.

Linear Algebra

Linear Algebra is an area of mathematics that deals with the structure known as vector spaces.

I have a B.S. in mathematics. Part of the curriculum was two semesters of linear algebra. We also had another two semesters of a course called abstract algebra. Vector Spaces can be studied in a more general sense in abstract algebra as well. This area of math is concerned with abstract mathematical structures such as groups, rings, and fields. After all, that's all a vector space is, a set...
