Central Connecticut State University (Mathematics and German, B.A.)
I have tutored students on multiple occasions at Central Connecticut State University. In the Spring '16 semester, I volunteered as a teacher's assistant in two mathematics courses (Discrete Mathematics and Introduction to Real Analysis.)
My responsibility included grading homework assignments, exams, and working in-class with students (group work.) I was in charge of the class while the professor I was working with was away for a week. Every student (especially in mathematics) deserves to experience his/her own "aha" moment.
The amount of time to receive this "aha" varies from each individual, but it is after this moment occurs that really makes tutoring worth it for me. Having experienced many of these moments myself, I can say that it is exactly the motivation one needs to not only improve, but feel great too.
I completed a Bachelors of Arts degree with a double major in Mathematics and German. I completed all required mathematics courses and additional electives as well. As of the Spring of 2016 I have completed courses in Calculus I,II,III, Advanced Vector Calculus, Discrete Mathematics and introductory courses of the following subjects: Linear/Abstract Algebra, Real Analysis, Ordinary/Partial Differential Equations, Tensor Calculus, and Topology. I was the recipient of the Mathematics Department Honors Award my graduating year. I have tutored students on multiple occasions at Central Connecticut State University. In the Spring '16 semester, I volunteered as a teacher's assistant in two mathematics courses (Discrete
I met with Sean for a couple weeks to review and get ready for my college linear algebra final exam. He was well prepared and knowledgeable and helped me prepare for the exam which I passed. He went above and beyond to help me. I would highly recommend him as a tutor!
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.
I volunteered as a TA in a Discrete Mathematics course at Central Connecticut State University. This course covered propositional logic, set theory, mathematical induction, the division algorithm, modular arithmetic, etc. The main focus was understanding what a mathematical proof is and how to develop your own proofs. Proof writing was incorporated into each of the topics described above. My duties involved grading homework assignments, many of which were proofs and assisting students in the classroom.
I completed an undergraduate degree in mathematics, which required me to take an introduction to linear algebra course. This course covered most of the basic linear algebra topics. This included vector spaces, systems of linear equations, determinants, linear transformations, and matrices. I received an A in this course.
