I have been a college math instructor for more than 15 years (twice named Teacher of the Year by the student government association.) During this time, I have also been a professional tutor in my school's Learning Center. While I enjoy the challenge of classroom teaching, I have found that students often benefit most from the personalized, interactive nature of tutoring sessions.
My educational background includes Masters degrees in mathematics and physics, as well as Ph.D. coursework in math. In my role as a Learning Center tutor, I have acquired extensive experience tutoring almost all levels of college math and many physics courses. I have also tutored high school math (algebra and above) and HS physics. I hope to have the opportunity to help you achieve success!
In obtaining my Bachelor's degree in mathematics, I took the standard undergraduate course in ordinary differential equations. Partial differential equations were also included in one of my undergraduate advanced calculus courses. In addition, I learned many aspects of the theory of differential equations in various advanced undergraduate and graduate math courses. Differential equations finds some of its most significant applications in the field of physics, and I gained a knowledge of many of these applications in obtaining my B.S. and M.S. degrees in physics. I also taught an undergraduate course in differential equations at Binghamton University, and tutored many students in diff. eq. as a professional math tutor at Penn State Wilkes-Barre. I look forward to the opportunity to help you succeed in differential equations.
In obtaining my BS and Master's degrees in mathematics, I took a number of courses that included the essential topics of discrete mathematics. These courses included logic, set theory, sequences, mathematical induction, number theory, combinatorics, probability and graph theory. As an instructor at Penn State Wilkes-Barre, I had the opportunity to teach discrete math several times. In addition, I also successfully tutored discrete math students in individual and group settings as a professional math tutor in the Learning Center at Penn State. I hope to have the chance to help you in discrete math.
The understanding of the importance of the applications of linear algebra to many different fields has grown significantly in recent years. As a result, students in many different majors are now required to complete linear algebra courses. I completed the basic undergraduate linear algebra course (for math majors) while obtaining my Bachelor's degree in math. I also completed a graduate level linear algebra course. In addition, I have a good appreciation for the applications of linear algebra in science (particularly physics), engineering, and other fields. While at Penn State Wilkes-Barre, I taught an undergraduate linear algebra course (for engineering majors) several times, and also tutored many students in linear algebra while serving as a professional math tutor. I look forward to the opportunity to help you succeed in linear algebra.
In obtaining my BS in mathematics, I was required to complete a "transition to higher math" course. This course included the basic concepts of logic, stressing those necessary to do mathematical proofs. In completing my master's degree in math (Binghamton University), as well as in PhD courses I have taken at Penn State and Binghamton U, I have continued to put these concepts of logic into practice. In addition, I have taught many aspects of logic in college courses on Discrete Math (at Penn State Wilkes-Barre) and Finite Math (at Penn State University Park) These courses included basic propositional logic (truth tables, negations, logical equivalence, rules of inference), quantifiers, and applications. I hope to have the opportunity to help you in logic.
Great tutor — William was very thorough in his review of material for calculus II. Very knowledgeable and always was available whenever you needed him. He was a great help and I passed the required course due to him. ...
