I have always been strongly interest in teaching, tutoring family friends and working as a tennis instructor at a tennis camp when I was in high school. As an undergraduate I tutored high school students in physics for a year and spent 3 years on a science fair outreach program. I was paired with an underprivileged middle school student and would help the student determine a science project, run the experiment, and present it at a science fair, while demonstrating how exciting and engaging science can be. I've spent the last year working for a tutoring company tutoring in test prep (SAT and ACT) and academics (Physics, Math, Statistics) and tutoring some students with mild learning disabilities (e.g. ADHD, dyslexia) These experiences have allowed me to develop ample skills in tailoring my teaching and perspective to each student; so I can explain concepts in terms the student will understand and engage with, no matter what the student’s background and interests are. This combined with my patience, genuine interest in teaching, learning, and academics allows me to ensure that my students not only learn the material but enjoy it.
I got a B.S. in math and physics so I had to take several diff eq classes. I took differential equations for physicists as well as the normal differential equations class (for math) and then took partial differential equations my senior year. I'm also currently getting a PhD in a field that relies heavily on fluid dynamics and differential equations.
It depends on what "discrete math" means. I have a B.S. in mathematics from Carnegie Mellon University and I've taken classes in combinatorics and logic, though I would not feel comfortable tutoring someone in those subjects. However, I took a class on basic proof theory, Number Theory, Principles of Real Analysis I and II, Algebra (the proof class, not the high school one), etc. so I feel comfortable tutoring basic proof theory classes, number theory, discrete calculus and anything in those realms.
I've been playing sports all my life and have accumulated a wealth of sports fitness knowledge. I played rugby as an undergraduate and became the fitness coach for the team, planning workouts that were emailed to the team as well as instructing workouts in the actual gym to the players who could make it to the lift sessions. I'm currently taking classes on nutrition and physiology and am seriously considering becoming a personal trainer or sports fitness coach. From unofficially assisting people in fitness and from personal injuries I've also acquired a fair amount of knowledge on fitness for people with specific limitations (whether they be from injury, old age, lack of flexibility, etc.).
As an undergraduate I took a class on the fundamentals of MATLAB programming. My senior year I did two research projects that both revolved heavily on MATLAB (one was modeling the evolution of a liquid drop on a liquid surface and the other numerically calculating the evolution of heat distribution over different domains subject to different "stirring"). I'm currently getting a PhD in geophysics and use MATLAB as part of my research daily.
I have experience playing: I played varsity tennis all 4 years of high school including becoming the captain my senior year. I've taught tennis: I helped instruct tennis to children at a sports camp for 3 summers in a row in high school. I also did some tennis instructing for a local "community special olympics" for children with disabilities, though there was a heavy emphasis on moral encouragement and sportsmanship and less emphasis on actual tennis skill training.
Very patient!! — I really enjoy my tutoring sessions with Conroy, not only is he very patient, he also takes the time to answer any and all questions. He has a way of explaining things in ways you understand with no problems. I truly think he has been a perfect fit with the way I learn math. ...
