For the past 3 years I have been a tutor for SUNY at Buffalo's Center for Academic and Developmental Services (CADS). There, I have learned to deal with a wide variety of students ranging from liberal arts majoring in art, to those in my chosen major (math/physics). All of them had a common problem with understanding mathematics and/or Physics. I generally take the stance that not everyone understands these subject matters as I do and to assume so would further the frustration felt by the student in learning such material. This causes me to make more assumptions that something I say may not work to their advantage, and so I attempt to reword such sentences in order to deliver the maximum amount of clarity possible. I have also taken part in 4 successive Summer Bridge programs wherein incoming freshmen (to UB) spend 3 weeks living the life of a student going through freshman year. We give them classes, schedules, homework and something similar to recitations for these classes. This aids in helping students acclimate themselves to the college atmosphere before even setting foot on a college campus for their first year.
I recently gained my BS in Mathematical Physics and BS in Mathematics from the University at Buffalo in Amherst New York, and have returned to for graduate school this past fall 2011. I have always enjoyed sharing my knowledge of mathematics and physics with everyone who has ever asked a question about the world we live in. It's no doubt that the greatest joy in life is when you see a student suddenly realize that they do in fact understand something that has been plaguing them for days weeks or even years. I have seen students who list math as their wore subject walk away with the grade they want to get and a reasonable level of confidence when walking into exams.
My love of Mathematics and Physics is only surpassed by my love of sharing it with everyone else.
My experience with differential equations tends to be above average for a student of equal college educational level due to the number of courses I have taken regarding all types of differential equations. I first took the Ordinary differential equations class, and followed it with a class on partial differential equations. It might not seem relevant, except that to solve many partial differential equations I had to resort to all methods used in an ODE class. This furthered my understanding of ordinary differential equations. Ultimately I took on the graduate partial differential equations course in undergrad years to further my basic understanding of ODEs and to raise my level of understanding of PDEs.
Like differential equations, linear algebra is a subject I have had much experience with. For me to obtain a BS in mathematics I was required to take linear algebra, and abstract linear algebra during the course of my studies at the University. Due to the nature of working in the many fields of physics, I have to resort to many of the methods used in linear algebra very frequently. I can say that my professor in my introductory linear algebra class conducted the course like a theoretical class, and that this has made my skills in the subject fairly strong.
