About Markus

I taught undergraduate math and statistics courses at UC Berkeley for about six years while I was a doctoral student. During that time I had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of students at very different levels. I'm just as happy helping out students who just need to pass as I am working with students who are striving for that A+.

I'm passionate about math and about teaching. My favorite part of graduate school was getting the chance to work with students one-on-one.

Working with a variety of students has taught me to be patient, kind and encouraging. I believe that students learn best when they feel comfortable, but challenged. I have a doctorate in math, so I know my stuff.

If you are interested in friendly one-on-one instruction, contact me and we can schedule a lesson!

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

I was a TA for courses that involved differential equations for seven semesters at UC Berkeley. I spent a lot of time working with differential equations in my research as a PhD student. Differential equations can be really exciting once you realize that they can change the way you understand the world. I'd be happy to help make that happen.

Linear Algebra

I was a TA for linear algebra for two semesters at UC Berkeley. Linear algebra comes up all the time in every area of mathematical research. In fact, my dissertation used a lot of really fancy linear algebra. Whether you need help figuring out what's going on with row reduction or trying to get a conceptual understanding of Jordan form, I can help.
