As a high school student and undergraduate I tutored younger students in a variety of subjects, primarily focusing on mathematics and physics, but also occasionally in test preparation (SAT especially). Prior to college I worked as a private tutor, while in college I worked as a tutor in my school's science center as well as a student mentor, responsible for running weekly review sessions.

As I am now a graduate student working toward a PhD in mathematics, I now TA mathematics courses, organizing weekly discussion sections that focus on problem solving. My TAing experience includes:

-calculus

-linear algebra (introductory and advanced)

-abstract algebra

-mathematics of finance

-combinatorics

My own coursework is much broader than this, however, and I am proficient at at least an undergraduate level additionally in:

-combinatorics (my area of research)

-analysis (real and complex)

-statistics

-probability

-physics

I am also well versed in all math likely to be encountered through the high school level.

####
SAT Reading

I achieved a perfect score on the SAT reading section and have considerable knowledge of strategies to perform well here.

####
Probability

I have studied both undergraduate and graduate level probability.

####
Discrete Math

I have taken numerous courses in combinatorics, including courses in graph theory and general combinatorics as part of the Budapest Semesters in Mathematics program as an undergraduate as well as several more as a graduate student.

My current research is in spectral graph theory, a branch of combinatorics, and reading academic papers in this field requires quite a bit of background in discrete math. I have also studied theoretical computer science, which relies heavily on combinatorial...

####
Linear Algebra

I have taken undergraduate and graduate courses in linear algebra as well as math and physics courses that relied heavily on this subject. I have acted as a teaching assistant in for undergraduate linear algebra course.

Further, my research is in spectral graph theory, which uses linear algebra heavily.
