“**Awesome Help**”

Greetings All! My name is Murphy and I'd love to help you with all your Math needs!

Education and Research

I received a B.Sc. in mathematics with a minor in physics in 2012, graduating summa cum laude. At the end of my senior year, I was given an unsolicited award from the mathematics department for "Excellence in Real Analysis

Murphy is approved to conduct lessons through Wyzant Online. Wyzant Online allows students and tutors to work remotely via video, audio, and collaborative whiteboard tools. For more information about how online tutoring works, check out Wyzant Online.

If you’re interested in online lessons, message Murphy to get started.

Murphy was more than I could ask for in a tutor. Patient and understanding. I will be using him again. Calculus II is very difficult to understand and he broke it down in very small steps so I understood.

Being our first time to this website and using a tutor, I have to say I am impressed. Murphy is very professional, punctual and responsive. He truly has a passion for teaching and it shows. He has a great ability to connect with the student and sees it through to the end. He is flexible with his schedule and has always been able to accommodate us no matter how last minute. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a math tutor.

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.

One could simply not excel in mathematics without sound algebra knowledge and skills. As a tutor for last two years, I could not avoid having to help students with their algebra, no matter what the math subject was. I am familiar with all the standard algebra pitfalls and misconceptions.

In every one of my courses as an undergrad we had to employ algebra extensively, culminating in a senior-level course in abstract algebra where we learned there are in fact more than just one algebra (the one we are all most familiar with), but actually very many and unique algebras. All that being said, I am 100% confident I can help iron out anyone's algebra wrinkles due to my long exposure and practice with basic and advanced algebra.

I have a great deal of experience in calculus. As requisites for my undergraduate degree, I have completed (with Straight A's) Calculus I-III, and Advanced Calculus I-II. I am currently in a Real Analysis course (graduate level Calculus).

I also received a scholarship reward from the UNF Mathematics and Statistics department for "Excellence in Analysis (a.k.a. Calculus)".

Discrete math topics crop up all over the place. In addition to taking a class specifically in Discrete Mathematics at UNF as a part of my Undergrad (Passing with an A), I've dealt with discrete math in various areas such as in computer science applications (assessing algorithmic complexity, for example)and probability (specifically, combinatorics and counting).

Discrete math topics also overlap with other mathematics courses that I've taken like Proof Theory, Number Theory, Graph Theory, and basic Logic. I feel confident due to my extensive exposure to Discrete Mathematics topics, that I can effectively tutor in the subject.

Without a solid foundation in precalculus, one would not be able to effectively tutor in calculus. Working as a collegiate level tutor at UNF, I tutored extensively in precalculus and calculus. I have a great deal of personal experience in calculus (and by extension, precalculus), as well. As requisites for my undergraduate degree, I have completed (with the highest marks) Calculus I-III, and Advanced Calculus I-II. I am also currently in a Real Analysis course (graduate level Calculus).
