I've been tutoring and teaching mathematics and test prep for 15 years. I've taught math and test prep on two continents. I have two years classroom experience at the high school level, so I know exactly what high school teachers expect. I taught Algebra 1 and 2 in a classroom setting at Indiana University, and I worked as a teaching assistant at UIC - Pre-Calculus 1, Pre-Calculus 2, Calculus 1, Calculus 2, Introduction to Higher Mathematics, Abstract Algebra, and Advanced Euclidean Geometry.

GRE

I've been tutoring test prep for 15 years, and I have a lot of experience helping students get the score they need on the GRE. I've helped students push past their goal scores in both the Quant and Verbal. I took the revised version of the GRE the first day it was offered and I scored a 170 on the Quant and a 168 on Verbal. I've helped design GRE apps for Android and IOS operating systems, and I revised the content of online GRE study tools to reflect the new structure of the exam.

Discrete Math

I have taught basic discrete/finite math (probability, combinatorics, naive set theory, basic linear algebra, linear programming) at the college level. I also wrote a study guide covering all the above topics. Used copies of the study guide are still available on amazon.com.

In addition I have taking 12 hours of graduate level mathematical computer science, incuding combinatorics, advanced combinatoric, and graph theory.

####
Differential Equations

I have taken two semesters of undergraduate differential equations as well as 1 semester of ODE's (ordinary differential equations) and elementary PDE's (partial differential equations) in graduate school. I have tutored ODE's for multiple students. I am familiar with all standard solution methods used in undergraduate curricula.
