I have over four years of experience teaching math and three years of experience tutoring math. I have a Math degree from the University of Rochester and a Computer Science degree from the University of Arizona. I was a Math TA for 2.5 years at Rochester, including two years of Calculus. At Ohio State, I was also a Math TA and tutor for two years. I was a TA for two years at Arizona for various theoretical computer science courses.

I have over four years of experience teaching math and three years of experience tutoring math. I have a Math degree from the University of Rochester and a Computer Science degree from the University of Arizona. I was a Math TA for 2.5 years at Rochester, including two years of Calculus. At Ohio State, I was also a Math TA and tutor for two years. I was a TA for two years at Arizona for various theoretical computer science courses.
I have experience working with students with a variety of backgrounds. Whether you want short-term or long-term help, I can help you become more confident with the material.
When working with a student, I first try to determine what the student knows so I can tailor my efforts to that student and make the tutoring sessions more efficient. I also like to construct problems specifically to target areas of difficulty for my students instead of just using problems from various textbooks. I try to keep my students as engaged in the material as possible so they can become confident in doing problems themselves -- after all, I believe the best way to learn math is by doing problems.
Classes I have taught include Calculus I, II, and III; Business Calculus; Calculus for Engineers; Cryptography; Data Structures, Algorithms, and Automata Theory. I am also very knowledgeable in Discrete Math and Linear Algebra. Feel free to contact me and let me know what topics you're struggling with; I hope to have the opportunity to help you succeed!
