About Eric


Bio

I honestly believe that I can help anyone understand mathematics by demystifying it, leaving no questions unanswered and no concepts misunderstood from the most basic level of "what is a number?" Notice that I did not say that I can help you "get the right answer" which is a service offered by most tutors. Most of the people that I tutor remark "I actually understand what's going on now" or "I didn't realize it was so simple!"

I have a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Notre Dame...

I honestly believe that I can help anyone understand mathematics by demystifying it, leaving no questions unanswered and no concepts misunderstood from the most basic level of "what is a number?" Notice that I did not say that I can help you "get the right answer" which is a service offered by most tutors. Most of the people that I tutor remark "I actually understand what's going on now" or "I didn't realize it was so simple!"

I have a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Notre Dame and a B.S. in Mathematics from Florida International University. I am currently a mathematics Instructor at the University of Miami. I have also taught college courses at Notre Dame and college courses at Westville Penitentiary through the Westville Education Initiative at Holy Cross College. I have over 200 hours of one-on-one tutoring here on Wyzant and over 100 hours tutoring outside of this website. I used to work 40 hours a week as a College Algebra tutor in the Mathematics Mastery Laboratory at FIU.

What qualifies me to tutor mathematics, outside of my expert knowledge of the field and its history, are my natural abilities to both communicate effectively with students of all ages and to share my passion for the ideas of mathematics (most people have never met somebody who likes math as much as I, or so they tell me).

So please, let me share with you the secret world of mathematics and open your eyes to the eternal truth and beauty of the patterns we discover!

Math

Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

My understanding of linear algebra comes from taking the course at Florida International University as well as 6 other abstract algebra courses above linear algebra. I would say that I know this subject in and out. Things in Linear Algebra: Fields, Vector Spaces, Matrices, Determinants, Linear Transformations, Basis, Linear independence, direct sum, inner product, orthogonality, and much more.
Logic,

Logic

My understanding of Logic comes from taking Mathematical Logic at Florida International University. The course was very deep and theoretical, beginning with predicate calculus and ending with Godel's completeness and incompleteness theorems. I understand this subject very well.
