About Jonathan

I am a second year Math and Physics double major at UF. I've been tutoring Calculus for over a year now. Not only is it rewarding to help give students an appreciation for math, but tutoring also helps me to gain a better core understanding of the material myself. This better understanding allows me to explain things more clearly. As Einstein said, "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough."

Therefore, I can approach explaining a problem in many different ways. If you don't understand a certain explanation, I can offer explanations with varying degrees of rigor depending on whether you just want to know enough to pass the class, get an A, or understand it well enough to teach it yourself. Also, I have a strong intuition for what may be going through a students head when they don't understand something. This means that even if you don't know how to put into words what you don't understand, I can still usually figure out whats giving you trouble and try to help.

I've always had a natural talent for math, I've even competed and won a few competitions. But that's not to say that I don't understand what issues someone who struggles with it might face. I've taken math all the way up through multivariable calculus, ordinary differential equations, set theory, mathematical logic, and some statistics. I'm currently taking courses in linear algebra, electromagnetism, thermal physics, and complex analysis.

So if you're interested please contact me and we can try to schedule something that works, my schedule is pretty flexible.

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.

Differential Equations

Completed Elementary Differential Equations (MAP2302) at UF. Received an A in the class and 100% on the Final Exam. Course covered the following topics: First-order ordinary differential equations, theory of linear ordinary differential equations, solution of linear ordinary differential equations with constant coefficients, the Laplace transform and its application to solving linear ordinary differential equations.

Logic

I have completed a course in set theory and logic labeled MHF3202 at University of Florida. Got an A in the course and near perfect scores on every exam. The course covered truth tables, tautologies, applications to mathematical arguments, mathematical induction, quantifiers, and techniques of writing proofs.
