About Andrea


Bio

Hi! I'm an instructor at UC Riverside in mathematics working on my Ph.D. I'm passionate about mathematics, and I love teaching in the hopes that you will find yourself enjoying the subject as much as I do. My goal is to take a socratic method toward problem-solving, guiding students toward the right answer through questions so as to impart a deeper understanding of the subject.

Hi! I'm an instructor at UC Riverside in mathematics working on my Ph.D. I'm passionate about mathematics, and I love teaching in the hopes that you will find yourself enjoying the subject as much as I do. My goal is to take a socratic method toward problem-solving, guiding students toward the right answer through questions so as to impart a deeper understanding of the subject.

Thru Wyzant, I have tutored and guided research projects for upper-division undergraduates, fellow graduate students, and independent researchers on the following topics: Probability theory and calculus-based statistics, real analysis, linear algebra, numerical analysis, category theory, topology, number theory, combinatorics, graph theory, set theory and foundations of mathematics, discrete math, and calculus.

Outside of Wyzant, I have over two years of experience at my university teaching classes on college algebra, precalculus, first-year calculus, calculus-based probability and statistics, numerical analysis, polynomials and number systems, and differential geometry. Lastly, I take phone calls from my fiancee's family and my cousin asking for help on their math homework, and from my mother asking me about math for her art projects.

At the graduate level, I have completed a year-long sequence in abstract algebra; a course in homological algebra; and a year-long sequence in applied math consisting of probability theory, numerical analysis, and other methods. I am currently enrolled in a pair of year-long sequences in topology and real analysis, and a pair of courses in algebraic geometry. Currently, I research a categorical approach toward understanding the composition of classical physical systems with the goal of creating a more generalized mathematical framework for understanding physics as a whole.

If you'd like to have my expertise in improving your mathematical literacy, please reach out to me!

I have taken four years of lessons in Argentine Tango, established and instructed an Argentine Tango Club at my undergraduate institution, attended numerous Milongas, and engaged in compensated performances by various patrons.

Statistics

Statistics

I have led discussions for mathematical probability and statistics three times now, and I feel very comfortable with the subject material. I took a year's worth of coursework in the subject during my undergraduate, and in grad school I was enrolled in a course in measure theory-based probability.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I have taken point-set topology once before and I am taking it again now. I also have significant experience with category theory and some experience with homological algebra, which can be beneficial in understanding algebraic topology.
Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

Discrete math is critical for most upper-division undergraduate and graduate-level math classes. In addition to set theory and functions being foundational concepts for mathematics, discrete math is typically a student's first introduction to rigorous proofs, which form the basis for how mathematics is done at the higher level. Consequently, any upper-division course I have taught or tutored has involved guiding students through topics from discrete math, and any upper-division course I have taken has required I understand discrete math.
Finite Math,

Finite Math

Set theory and foundational mathematics, including the material in a typical finite mathematics course, is critical to most of graduate-level mathematics courses. I have taught probability and statistics multiple times, I did a research project in combinatorial number theory, and I have graded for linear algebra, all of which are topics typically surveyed in a finite mathematics course.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I have taken undergraduate linear algebra in addition to module theory (a generalization of linear algebra). I have graded for a linear algebra course before and it's a subject I enjoy instructing.
Logic,

Logic

I wrote my undergraduate senior thesis on the application of category theory to logic through the use of toposes and topos logic. My thesis was summarizing results from Robert Goldblatt's "Topoi: The Categorical Analysis of Logic," which discusses the categorical construction of classical and intuitionist logic and applications of these categorical structures in understanding set theory and the Peano axioms through natural numbers objects.
Probability,

Probability

I have taken a year-long undergraduate sequence in mathematical probability and statistics and I am currently TAing for my third time a course in mathematical probability and statistics. I've taken two measure theory courses previously, one in general measure theory with special attention to the Lebesgue Measure, and one in probability measures in developing the theory of probability. I'm currently enrolled in the standard graduate-level measure theory course as well, so the subject is particularly fresh on my mind.
