About Danielle

Hello,

I am a graduate of Portland State University with a Master's Degree in mathematics. I taught mathematics at the local community colleges in Portland and now I teach math at the University of Alaska in Fairbanks.

While I love teaching, I also enjoy the one-on-one experience of tutoring. I believe that, if each idea was explained to a student in just the right way, they would understand it. Sometimes it takes many tries to find this perfect explanation. In a classroom setting a student doesn't always get this. As a tutor I can go over an idea as many times and in as many ways as necessary.

To avoid any conflict of interest, I do not tutor students taking UAF courses below 300 level.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Differential Equations

As an undergraduate I completed the differential equations course to finish my calculus series. As a graduate student I have taken a year of differential topology and a year of differential geometry both of which require knowledge of differential equations. I also have experience tutoring differential equations privately.

Discrete Math

Discrete mathematics has been a significant part of my research as a graduate student. I have taken courses in graph theory, combinatorics, number theory, and algebraic graph theory. Furthermore I passed the master's examination in discrete math as a requirement for the completion of my Master's degree.

Elementary Math

One of the courses I teach at the community college is basic arithmetic. It's a common notion in math circles that very basic or fundamental math concepts are hard to teach, because it's been so long since we learned them. Because of this I took a job tutoring at a math learning center that worked with children from kindergarten to college. Here, I got lots of practice and support working with beginning math concepts, it's now one of my favorite subjects to teach.

Linear Algebra

As an undergraduate in mathematics I completed a general course in linear algebra. More recently, I've taken advanced linear algebra and multilinear algebra at the graduate level. In addition I've passed the Master's exam in algebra, which is a comprehensive examination in both linear algebra and abstract algebra.
