About Amos

Hi!

I've been a tutor since high school, though my first paying tutoring gig turned up after I'd graduated and moved away for college. I've worked at college tutoring centers, private academies, and independently. My experience at tutoring centers was as a drop-in tutor -- students could arrive at the tutoring center without having made an appointment to receive a quick lesson or two. At the private academy, I was an SAT instructor for small classrooms, with no more than eight students per session. I also developed and administered a full-semester curriculum in Geometry for one very bright home-schooled student.

Thanks for your consideration. I hope to hear from you soon! :)

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 have earned top marks in Differential Equations (DEs) at Ventura Community College and at the California State University in Fullerton.

At this level of mathematics, I know that practice is the single best method for learning the tools and concepts necessary to excel on exams. The final exam for DEs will almost assuredly be a probe of the student's ability to identify and solve various classifications of differential equations.

I have been a mathematics tutor for over ten years, and have tutored at this level of mathematics for at least two of those years -- both in-class for my fellow students, and out-of-class for others.

Linear Algebra

I have also earned top marks in Linear Algebra at Ventura Community College and at the California State University.

Due to its tendency to take up a lot of space on the page, I approach Linear Algebra tutoring with heightened clarity and spacious demonstrations -- with Linear Algebra, there is no such thing as wasting paper. The clearer and larger I draw my matrices, the more space there will be for showing work, and the fewer mistakes my students will make due to misalignment of entries or squashed scribbling.

I've been a mathematics tutor for over ten years, and have been tutoring Linear Algebra for at least two of those years.
