About Alan

I recently graduated from the University of California Berkeley with a B.A. in Applied Mathematics with a concentration in Quantum Mechanics and a French minor. I have taken and passed all math classes with a A's and B's. Some classes that I have taken at Berkeley include, Calculus I and II, Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Discrete Math, Real Analysis, Abstract Algebra, Numerical Analysis, Dynamical Systems, Mathematical Modeling, Fourier Analysis, Complex Analysis, Classical Physics, Electromagnetism, Modern Physics, and Quantum Mechanics I and II. I also tutor at the middle school and high school level mathematics classes such as geometry, algebra, and precalculus. I have tutored students at my local middle school (Wilson Middle School), my high school (Glendale High School), as well as others who have sought my services throughout summer sessions.

As for French, I have been studying and speaking French for 8 years. I have attended the University of Bordeaux in the spring for a study abroad opportunity where I am involved in a full immersion program and took mathematics courses in French. For two summers in a row I have done an internship at US Naval bases located in Corona, CA and in Dahlgren, Virginia. At each base I conducted research for the Navy, which have resulted in soon-to-be published papers. When tutoring I try to have an engaging experience with the student so that he/she understands each concept, how to approach problems, and solve them in the most efficient way. I want my students to realize the beauty of mathematics and how it really is a useful subject that they should appreciate fully. I am open to teaching students of any age and work well with anyone determined to learn the subject. I hope to hear from you soon!

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.

Calculus

I took Math 1A at Cal in Fall 2011 and passed with an A- and also received a 5 on the AP Calculus AB Exam. I also took Math 1B at Cal in Spring 2012 and passed with an A+.

Differential Equations

In spring 2013, I took a Linear Algebra and Differential Equations course at UC Berkeley, which I passed with an A grade. I have studied ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations, and lower and higher order differential equations. Although I have not tutored differential equations professionally, I often helped my peers with understanding the fundamentals of differential equations as well as the more complex problems and concepts.

French

Courses at Cal with grades:
French 3: Intermediate French: A
French 4: Intermediate-Advanced French: A-
French 102: Writing in French: A
French 121A: 17th Century French Theatre: A-
French 171A: The Court of Louis XIV: A
French 172A: Psychoanalysis Literature: A

I took two courses at the Université de Bordeaux in France. I also took four years of high school French. I'm considered fluent in French.

Linear Algebra

In spring 2013, I took a Linear Algebra and Differential Equations course at UC Berkeley, which I passed with an A grade. I have studied basic matrix operations, determinants, inverses, eigenvalues and eigenvectors (both real and complex), diagonalization, orthogonality, and symmetric matrices. Although I have not tutored linear algebra professionally, I often helped my peers with understanding the fundamentals of linear algebra as well as the more complex problems and concepts.
