About Scott


Bio

I'm available for calculus (one to several variables), linear algebra, and differential equations.

I'm usually available Sundays through Thursdays from 1pm to 7pm EST, generally speaking, and I'm happy meeting weekly, bi-weekly, or on an as-needed basis. I'm available to meet over video on Wyzant or Zoom and in person in Miami. I usually need at least a 24-hour notice to schedule a session and a 12-hour notice to cancel or reschedule.

I'm available for calculus (one to several variables), linear algebra, and differential equations.

I'm usually available Sundays through Thursdays from 1pm to 7pm EST, generally speaking, and I'm happy meeting weekly, bi-weekly, or on an as-needed basis. I'm available to meet over video on Wyzant or Zoom and in person in Miami. I usually need at least a 24-hour notice to schedule a session and a 12-hour notice to cancel or reschedule.

As for my background, I earned a BS in math from the University of Wisconsin - Madison in 2011. As a student I tutored calculus in the UW's Mathlab for a couple of years and then went on to grade papers for math major courses for the math department. I've been doing some private tutoring since then.

If we meet, I usually suggest bringing some problems to work on that you've already attempted or a list of specific questions. It makes a good starting point. I can also provide examples and exercises to work on together, so send me any specific topics you might like to work on in advance.

Calculus

Calculus

I studied pure math at the University of Wisconsin - Madison where I tutored calculus at all levels in the university's drop-in Mathlab for a couple of years. I've been doing some private tutoring since then. I tutor proof-based courses such as those using the Apostol volumes as well as the standard engineering three-semester or four-quarter system based on something like James Stewart's textbooks. I've also taught a non-credit, first-semester calculus course (independent of any institution, so a labor of love) which was designed to offer more depth but less breadth than a typical course. The course focused on techniques (as usual) and on understanding and appreciating some of the proofs of the techniques. If you're a UW-Madison student in Calculus II, then I can provide exercises to aid in understanding the definition of little-oh, and on when and how to apply the theorems about little-oh to work with series.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I earned a BS in math from the University of Wisconsin - Madison. I completed an undergraduate course in differential equations as part of the degree and earned perfect scores on the exams. The summer before I took an independent course in the subject under a faculty member at a local college. This course was designed to offer more depth (but less breadth) than a typical college-level class. During the course I undertook an extracurricular project which looked at some assumptions in the method of variation of parameters. I presented my results at a Mathematical Association of America sectional meeting. Since then I've been tutoring students at UW - Madison in both a differential equations course and in a differential equations / linear algebra course. The differential equations / linear algebra course uses linear algebra to solve systems of differential equations. The texts currently used for these courses are Elementary Differential Equations And Boundary Value Problems by Boyce and DiPrima, Differential Equations and Linear Algebra by Edwards and Penney, and Differential Equations and Linear Algebra by Strang.
Linear Algebra

Linear Algebra

I completed two undergraduate courses in linear algebra as part of my math degree at University of Wisconsin - Madison. One course was computational while the other was proof-based. I earned As in both. The texts used were Elementary Linear Algebra by Anton and Linear Algebra: Gateway to Mathematics by Messer. Since then I've been tutoring students at UW - Madison in linear algebra at the computational and proof-based levels. I also work with students taking a differential equations / linear algebra course which uses linear algebra to solve systems of differential equations. The texts usually used for these courses are Elementary Linear Algebra with Applications by Kolman and Hill, Linear Algebra by Friedberg, Spence, and Insel, and Differential Equations and Linear Algebra by Edwards and Penney.

Great tutor!

Scott was very thorough in making sure he was aware of my knowledge and what I expected from him. He was extremely patient and effective in preparing me for my multivariable calculus exam.

Maggie, 2 lessons with Scott

The best

The best tutor ever. He knows what he is doing, He knows the subjects, and he teaches the hidden tricks. Both of my kids are very happy with him, and they significantly improved at school. He is available either online or in person.

Marcelo, 16 lessons with Scott

Excellent tutor, knows advanced math well

My son is taking Multivariable Calculus online and it is hard to find someone who knows that subject well. We are so glad we found Scott who has been a great help!

Awesome Linear Algebra and Diff Eq Tutor

Scott helped me through a difficult online linear algebra/differential equations course with great professionalism and patience. Even though the course was set up with very little material beyond assigned chapter readings, he was able to easily and consistently fill in my knowledge gaps/prep me for exams. He clearly has a deep understanding of the related topics and was also very responsive to any additional questions/scheduling hurdles. Definitely would recommend to anyone in need of a linear algebra and/or diff eq tutor!!

Good teacher.

Scott was very understanding of my needs as an adult student and self learner. He listened and was very responsive to my needs. I still have to write more to reach the threshold of 160 words in order to submit this review.

Frank, 20 lessons with Scott

Extra help

He not only helped me with my math, but also gave insight on classes to take and course loads for upcoming semesters!

Calli, 13 lessons with Scott

Most Professional tutor ever!

He helps me prepare for my exam that related to the linear algebra. He knows everything and teaches me to solve problems in different ways! Will find him again for math. :)

Helpful first lesson

Scott helped me come up with a strategy for the summer that will get me prepared for my PhD studies. He's thorough and patient, and I have decided to hire him for the summer

Great Tutor, Patient & Knowledgeable

Scott helped me get through a tough assignment and was able to explain everything step by step in order to help me understand it. He was very patient and waited for me to process what he had just told me in order for me to fully understand everything we went over. It was a great session and I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a tutor!
