About Archie


Bio

Hi!

My name is Archie, and I LOVE math (FUN!)! I have loved math since I was in second grade. I loved math so much that in my senior year in high school, I took AP Calculus AB and BC at the same time, and then majored in math in college, and went on to grad school to learn as much math as I could!

I earned my bachelor's degree in mathematics (with a minor in computer science) from the University of San Diego (USD) and my doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in mathematics from the University of...

Hi!

My name is Archie, and I LOVE math (FUN!)! I have loved math since I was in second grade. I loved math so much that in my senior year in high school, I took AP Calculus AB and BC at the same time, and then majored in math in college, and went on to grad school to learn as much math as I could!

I earned my bachelor's degree in mathematics (with a minor in computer science) from the University of San Diego (USD) and my doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in mathematics from the University of California at San Diego (UCSD). I have been tutoring students since I was in high school, including students from Coronado High School, La Jolla Country Day School, USD, SDSU, UCSD, and Australia (online)!

I am currently (school year 2022-2023) teaching (Prealgebra) and subbing (Prealgebra through Calculus) at Art of Problem Solving Academy. I am also currently teaching (Statistics) (also taught Precalculus and AP Calculus AB last school year) at Southern California Yeshiva High School.

I was an Adjunct Professor at San Diego Mesa College, where I taught Pre-Algebra, Elementary and Intermediate Algebra, Trigonometry, College and Matrix Algebra, Elementary Statistics, Pre-Calculus, Calculus with Analytic Geometry I/II/III, Discrete Mathematics, Introduction to Linear Algebra, and Differential Equations.

I have also taught at the local universities. At SDSU, I taught Fundamentals of Mathematics, Intermediate Algebra, Topics in Mathematics, Introduction to Linear Algebra, History of Mathematics, and Algebraic Structures. At UCSD, I taught Calculus for Science and Engineering II. At USD, I taught Intermediate Algebra, College Algebra, Calculus I/II, and Applied Mathematics for Science and Engineering I/II.

When I was in grad school, I was a TA for Introduction to Differential Equations, Number Theory, and Partial Differential Equations.

My approach to tutoring is the Socratic method, which is the use of open-ended questions to engage a student in discussion and guide him/her towards some kind of insight.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I am qualified to tutor in Differential Equations because I took the Differential Equations course at USD as an undergrad. I was also a Teaching Assistant for the Differential Equations course at UCSD for several quarters. I am currently tutoring a student in Partial Differential Equations.
Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

I am qualified to tutor in Discrete Math because I am a mathematician (specifically, a number theorist). Discrete Math includes a number of distinct areas of study such as mathematical logic, set theory, number theory, combinatorics, graph theory, and mathematical relations. My graduate work was in number theory and graph theory. I also took combinatorics in grad school. I tutored a high school student in Discrete Math recently.
Finite Math,

Finite Math

I taught Discrete Math this semester (Spring 2016) and last semester (Fall 2015). Among the finite math topics, I covered logic, sets, counting, I also taught Linear Algebra this semester, where I covered vectors and matrices. I also covered vectors in my Calculus III class this semester.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I taught Linear Algebra at a university this semester (Spring 2016). I will also be teaching Linear Algebra at a community college this summer. As a math major, I took Linear Algebra as one of my classes and did very well in it.

Test Preparation

CBEST,

CBEST

I am qualified to tutor in CBEST (Math) because the skill areas being tested are estimation, measurement statistical principles, computation, problem solving, numerical, and graphic relationships. These skill areas are well within my capabilities as a mathematician. I have tutored students in similar tests such as SAT Math and TEAS (Math).
ISEE,

ISEE

I am qualified to tutor in ISEE (Math) because the skill areas being tested are found in arithmetic through pre-calculus. These skill areas are well within my capabilities as a mathematician. I have tutored students in ISEE (Math). I use the Socratic or inquiry method of teaching so that students can arrive at their own conclusions and build knowledge.
TEAS,

TEAS

I am qualified to tutor in TEAS (Math) because the skill areas being tested are basic math skills such as whole numbers, fractions, decimals, ratios, proportions, percents, geometry, measurement, probability, statistics, equations, inequalities, exponents, polynomials, and radicals. These skill areas are within my capabilities as a mathematician. I have tutored students in tests such as SAT Math, GRE Math, and TEAS (Math).

Very helpful

Archie was awesome for my son who needed some help with pre algebra. It was just what he needed that his teacher could not provide. We greatly appreciate his patience and approach.

Tanya, 1 lesson with Archie

Knowledgeable and patient!

I needed help on a calculus project that needed to be completed on MATLAB. I am very new to MATLAB, and some of the calculus concepts were confusing, but Archie was able to help me understand the MATLAB portion as well as the concepts being used. He was also super patient, and would graph things when I couldn't understand, which was super helpful. Looking forward to having more tutoring sessions.

Discrete Math

Archie is very knowledgeable and patient when teaching Discrete Math. When working on hard problems he takes the time to go over the basics and how they apply to the hard problem.

Nazia, 6 lessons with Archie

Excellent Math tutor

Archie is a terrific math tutor. He is always on time and explains concepts in very good detail. He his easy to understand and he has really helped me in my college algebra class at University of San Diego . I would highly recommend him . Carly

Fast response and knowledgeable tutor

My stepdaughter needed a touring for her assignment. Mr. Archie responded me fast. He was very patient, knowledgeable, and detailed to explain the math questions my stepdaughter. Very appreciate his help. Thank you so much!

Ann, 1 lesson with Archie

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

I was struggling with linear programming HW, so I scheduled a tutor session with Archie. It went very well. He knows the concept of linear programming very well and did a pretty good job of explaining it. Highly recommended and I will def schedule for future sessions with him.

Yuchen, 1 lesson with Archie

Helpful and Clear

Archie was helpful, and he was able to give some clarification on some areas that caused confusion. A couple of examples were discussed, and by the end of the session, number theory made a lot more sense. Highly recommend!

Suzy, 7 lessons with Archie

Very knowledgeable and patient. Archie was so helpful.

Archie was patient. I really appreciated how he took the time to explain the math problems. He even gave me extra tips that I would have never thought of. I loved his point of view.

SAS and Statistics

Archie was very helpful as I was having a hard time learning how to use SAS and he helped me he started. It was very helpful that we were able to meet in person and that he was able to help me on a short notice. Thank you.
