I love tutoring math to students at all levels from pre-algebra to college level calculus. My goal is to make this an enjoyable experience for my students, working to help them reach their full potential. I have the ability to make what seems difficult and complex easily understood.
My experience includes tutoring at the Omega School in Madison. I received my BS from Northwestern University with Highest Distinction in engineering with the equivalent of a math major. I also have an MS degree in engineering from Stanford.
In teaching Advanced Algebra and Precalculus, I cover the following topics with the student.
1.Review of Word Problems and Dimensional Analysis,
2.Linear and Quadratic Functions,
3.Polynomial and Rational Functions,
4.Exponential and Logarithmic Functions Including e, the Bases of the Natural Logarithm,
5.Sequences and Series,
8.Introduction to Differential and Integral Calculus.
I use the student's own text book as this basis for teaching the above.
Prior to beginning Calculus, I review the student's understanding of geometry, advanced algebra, polynomials, and trigonometry.
We then move to:
1. the derivative and applications involving the derivative
2. the integral and applications involving the integral
3. exponential and logarithmic functions including the natural logarithm
4. trigonometric and hyperbolic functions.
I use the student's own text book and tailor my tutoring to the student's needs.
I am skilled in tutoring math, physics and general chemistry. I have 300 hours of WyzAnt tutoring experience in these subjects plus prior tutoring of math, science and verbal reasoning at a school in Madison. I am also familiar with life science having worked in the medical products industry for fourteen years.
I hold a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Northwestern University that I received with Highest Distinction. I also have an MS in Engineering Mechanics from Stanford University.
I have managed an engineering department and have been involved throughout my career with the design, manufacture and sale of engineered products
Prior to beginning Pre-Calculus, I review the student's understanding of geometry, advanced algebra, polynomials, coordinate geometry and graphical analysis and trigonometry.
We then move to:
1. exponential and logarithmic functions including the natural logarithm.
2. trigonometric and hyperbolic functions.
3. the derivative and applications involving the derivative
4. the integral and applications involving the integral.
I use the student's own text book along with materials that I have used successfully in the past and tailor my tutoring to the student's needs.
Excellent tutor for my boys, skilled and reliable — Sam has been working very effectively with my older son for a few months, and this week had a great session with my younger son. He is able to engage both my sons, who are very different from one another, with his friendly and low-key, but businesslike, tone. My younger son didn't want to start studying math in the summer, but quickly found it fun and rewarding. Sam has a lot of expertise and clea ...
