About Mitchell

I am currently on my last year at the University of California, San Diego studying to complete a B.S. degree in Joint Mathematics and Economics. I have always known of my love for mathematics, and I decided to apply my skill and knowledge in the subject into economics as well. I have completed the lower division requirements for both math and economics, which include calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, microeconomics, and macroeconomics. I have also taken upper division courses in both math and economics, including mathematical reasoning, intermediate microeconomics, and intermediate macroeconomics. Most recently (this summer), I have finished two courses in upper division real analysis, and an elective course of combinatorial game theory.

I spent almost one year tutoring kids up to middle school students in both math and English at a tutoring center called Kumon, and I also privately tutored middle school students in math for one school year. My goal in the future is to attain teaching credentials allowing me to teach high school calculus and possibly other subjects, so any experience in teaching will help me get there. By tutoring through WyzAnt, I hope to guide students to a deeper understanding in mathematics and the fundamental concepts in each course of mathematics. One ideal that I strongly believe and encourage is to understand the logic behind math rather than the specific methods used to solve certain problems. This is the reason why I have passionately studied the topic of real analysis, which emphasizes the rigorous proof of various fundamental concepts in math such as set theory, sequences, series, limits, continuity, convergence, derivatives, integrals, and much more.

I am passionate in encouraging students to understand the fundamentals of mathematics and I am meticulous in pushing for the student to understand each concept rather than just memorizing specific methods used to solve problems. An important aspect of math is the broadness of the subject, and deeply understanding the fundamentals of math allows a student to approach a broader range of problems.

While biology and chemistry are not in my area of focus, I am still passionate in teaching these subjects and I have a thorough understanding in general biology and chemistry up to the undergraduate lower division level. I am also on the path to complete a minor in physics, and have a strong interest in physics in general. An understanding of physics is extremely useful in everyday life, even for those not in the fields of science. I would encourage any student to have a strong foundation in all three of these subjects.

I will be somewhat busy studying throughout the year, but I will have a lot of time throughout the week to tutor, so please contact me for my availability. I hope I will be able to encourage many students to take passion in math and the sciences, and help guide them to succeed in the future.

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.

Algebra 2

I recently tutored a high school student for SAT math, and I could easily understand every practice problem that we went over. Although I've never tutored specifically for algebra 2, I believe I can explain the concepts clearly.

Discrete Math

Although discrete math was not as emphasized when I was taught in high school, I am confident in my understanding of mathematics to tutor discrete math. I have taken various math classes after high school, so I have a lot of experience dealing with a broad range of mathematics concepts such as number theory, set theory, matrices, logic, probability, modeling functions, inequalities, geometry, etc.

Elementary Math

I have tutored elementary math through a business called kumon for almost one year. My understanding of math is at the upper division undergraduate level, so I can definitely help in this subject.

Geometry

Geometry was easy for me when I took it in 8th grade, and since then, I have had to apply these fundamental concepts into math and physics up to the undergraduate level. Although I have only tutored a few students in geometry, I am confident that I can clarify any problems in simple geometry.
