About Jonathan

I am a second year Math and Physics double major at UF. I've been tutoring Calculus for over 2 years 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, but that's not to say that I don't understand what issues someone who struggles with it might face. I'm familiar with math all the way up through multivariable calculus, ordinary differential equations, set theory, mathematical logic, linear algebra, abstract algebra, complex analysis, and some statistics. I'm also familiar with the introductory physics with calculus sequence as well as thermal physics.

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

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Calculus

Familiar with Analyic Geometry & Calculus I - III, as well as Functions of a Complex Variable (Complex Analysis). 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.

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.

Linear Algebra

I am a second year Math and Physics double major at UF. Completed MAS4105 (proof-based linear algebra) at UF. Course covered linear equations, matrices, vector spaces, linear transformations, determinants, eigenvalues and inner-product spaces. Emphasized theoretical aspects of linear algebra however also developed computational tools. I'm also familiar with Abstract Algebra (MAS4301 at UF).

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.

Knowledgeable and patient

Jonathan was very helpful and insightful. He went the extra mile to make sure I understood every concept. He was patient, and showed me several tricks and tips on how to make the concepts easier for me.
