About Liam


Bio

Graduating from the University of Chicago with a degree in Mathematics/Computer Science, I pursued a career in the software development industry working on various projects most notably for IBM in Boca Raton and Austin Texas. In 1999 I decided to enroll as a graduate student in pure mathematics at F.A.U. and was offered a teaching assistant position with a stipend which enabled me to teach classes to pay for my degree.

Graduating from the University of Chicago with a degree in Mathematics/Computer Science, I pursued a career in the software development industry working on various projects most notably for IBM in Boca Raton and Austin Texas. In 1999 I decided to enroll as a graduate student in pure mathematics at F.A.U. and was offered a teaching assistant position with a stipend which enabled me to teach classes to pay for my degree. Eventually I received my masters degree by writing a thesis in combinatorics and algebra entitled "Tiling the Integers with Triples Using Signed Permutation Matrices". After graduating I have worked for various colleges teaching such classes as: Intermediate Algebra, College Algebra, Business Calculus, Advanced Topics in Mathematics, Technical Calculus, Statistics, and Discrete Mathematics. My experience also includes teaching more advanced classes: Differential Equations, Vector Calculus, Linear Algebra, Python Programming, and C/C++Programming. The students I have taught range from middle school and high school students, at companies such as Sylvan Learning Center, to college and university students at University of Florida, Florida Atlantic University, Keiser University, St. Petersburg College, and Hillsborough Community College. I am knowledgeable in many areas of mathematics but also able to explain things clearly to students of any level or ability.
Please contact me if you need tutoring in any of the subjects listed in my Wyzant profile.

Python

I write algorithms in Python to carry out mathematics research in number theory, geometry and combinatorics related to tiling the integers with triples, and utilize the Sage mathematics library to visualize graphs. My background includes teaching introductory C and Python programming, and application development in the 1990's using C/C++ contracting for tech. companies such as IBM in Austin and Boca Raton. Python is known for the simplicity of the syntax, built-in data structures such as dictionaries and sets, and the wide spectrum of modules available. If you need help learning the basics of coding or have more advanced problems to solve i can definitely help you achieve your goals. Especially if the problems involve discrete mathematics, statistics, data structures and algorithm design. If you are new to this then i can help you navigate through the sea of information available.

Extremely knowledgeable, and Excellent communicator. Very thorough in his lesson plan.

I had an excellent experience with Liam. He proved to be very knowledgeable on computer science coding and without a doubt, he is perhaps one of the best tutors I have had on Wyzant. He actually took the time to explain each line of code on my homework assignment and without a doubt, I have certainly grown in confidence in my coding. This is very crucial to me because I am currently in an extremely fast past computer science coding summer course and I really needed the extra help from a tutor. There is one thing to have a tutor tell you the answers but to have a tutor thoroughly explain each line of code line by line is far more beneficial. Thank you, Liam and I am looking forward to our next session together.
