About Samuel

Math and economics can be difficult - but they don't have to be. To understand them takes curiosity, a willingness to learn and a tutor who's ready to guide you through the maze.

I'm a young mathematician who loves teaching and knows that the secret to scoring high on the SAT, ACT and GRE isn't mindless memorization. It's all about understanding why something works the way it does, and appreciating how it can be applied.

The tedious drills taught by most high school teachers and college professors won't do, and this is something I've learned during my past four years tutoring students ages 14 to 45. It's been fun to watch them grow and learn, no matter what their level of education. My students include children from Glades Middle School, teens from Southwest and Palmetto high schools and young adults at FIU, UM and Miami-Dade College.

I've just finished my own B.S. in math at FIU, and I didn't get this far without cracking the code to success. And I love passing it along.

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

I have studied calculus at the university up to and including real analysis, complex analysis and functional analysis. I also have a lot of experience tutoring students in calculus an emphasis on calculus 1, 2, 3 and business calculus.

Discrete Math

I took the standard discrete math course that covers sets, logic, relations, functions, combinatorics, and graph theory. I've also taken specialized courses in combinatorics, axiomatic set theory, graph theory, and number theory. I have then gained experience tutoring discrete mathematics by helping many computer science majors pass this required course. It is this experience that has helped me to develop my ways of explaining the various concepts contained in the course.

Economics

While studying for my mathematics major I developed an interest in mathematical economics and took enough economics classes to earn a minor in the field. I studied such topics as econometrics, game theory, international trade and growth and development. I've subsequently helped many students with economics.

Linear Algebra

I have taken several courses in modern algebra. I earned an A in the standard linear algebra course that covers matrices, systems of linear equations and vector spaces. Following that I took two upper division courses in abstract algebra. The later of these courses covered modules over rings that are an extension of vector spaces. I have also tutored this course many times.

Logic

I've had a senior level mathematics course on first order mathematical logic that covered statement and quantifier logic as well as the notable metatheorems on completeness and consistency. I've also studied the philosophy of logic including theories of reference and meaning. And I have volunteered as a logic tutor for the philosophy department's introductory logic course.

Excellent tutor for math/economic calculations — Samuel was very excellent in assisting with my dilemma with my economics course. I much stress during the course and needed someone to help me through mental blocks. Samuel is very professional in his approach and I would definitely recommend his service! ...
