Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

Apart from doing some TA work in college, I have never formally taught Calculus. (Formally, I've taught Latin and computer programming to high schoolers.) But I've helped lots of people with Calculus work over the years, both my classmates when I was a student and, more recently, my students as a teacher and tutor. Calculus remains one of my favorite subjects to this day.

I have tutored math at all levels from middle-school arithmetic up through university-level calculus, as well as teaching AP Computer Science at the high-school level. This has frequently included the topics usually covered under the umbrella of "finite math" — combinatorics and discrete probability, sets and group theory, graph theory, basic number theory, formal logic, algorithmic analysis for computer programming, and so forth. In addition to their many real-world applications, I find each of these topics to be fun and engaging, and I have always enjoyed helping my friends and students to understand them.

I have taught high school classes in Java programming, including AP Computer Science.
