About Logan

I am a student with a passion for teaching. I've always loved mathematics, but I decided early on that I prefer experimentation. I went to school for my Bachelor's degree in both math and physics with a plan to stay in academia later in life. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Boston University in 2015, and am now well on my way towards a PhD in physics at Georgia Tech. After two years of private tutoring and being a teaching assistant, I think teaching is really where I'm meant to be.

Learning and the learning process excite me to no end. Helping a student grasp a concept so well that he or she can explain it back to me is so fulfilling, especially when I get to see a glimmer of excitement from that comprehension.

More than anything, I love when students ask me "why?" It demonstrates that not only have they understood the concept superficially, but they have reached beyond the desire to simply pass a test and are now questioning the underlying reasons behind the laws that govern the math and science of our world. I love seeing this curiosity blossom and fostering it through exploration and thought.
I have tutored math, physics, chemistry, and biology at the high school level through the National Honor Society.

At Boston University, I led discussion sections for undergraduate introductory physics for two semesters, and I am now a teaching assistant at Georgia Tech where I lead lab sections for a similar course.

I not only have a degree in math, I have a passion for it that has far exceeded the scope of my degree. I believe highly in the theory of parallelism, which says that all branches of math are connected. I like to teach loosely around this theory, connecting understandable, relatable concepts to the harder ones that I may be teaching. I have taken all math courses available in high school, as well as multivariate calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, discrete mathematics, probability, stochastic modeling, and differential geometry.

I have a huge range of interests in physics, which means that I have a large pool of real-world examples and applications for even the most elementary physics problems. On numerous occasions, I have finished tutoring a student, who will say something to the effect of "Wow, 5 hours in lecture left me lost, but 2 hours of studying with you and I get all of this!" I truly think that I've found my calling here.

In high school, I took AP physics B. At the undergraduate level, I took calculus-based intro physics, modern physics (I and II), mathematical methods, electrodynamics (I and II), quantum mechanics (I and II), advanced mechanics, advanced laboratory, electronics laboratory, and thermodynamics. At the graduate level, I have taken classical mechanics, statistical mechanics, electrodynamics (I and II), quantum mechanics (I and II) and mathematical methods.

Please don't hesitate to contact me! I'm happy to get started helping whenever you're ready.

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.

Differential Equations

I took and earned an A in MA 231, an honors-level (proof-based) differential equations course at Boston University where I received my BA in mathematics.
In my physics studies I have extensively applied my knowledge of differential equations to classical and quantum mechanics and electrodynamics, where the change of variables in space and time give rise to all the kinematic phenomena we see every day. When appropriate, I have tutored my colleagues in various topics in differential equations such as separation of variables, integrating factors, and Fourier and Laplace transformations. I am now a teaching assistant at Georgia Tech.

Discrete Math

I took and earned an A in MA 293, a discrete mathematics course at Boston University where I received my BA in mathematics.
In my physics studies I have applied my knowledge of discrete mathematics to statistical mechanics, where combinatorics define the probabilities of configurations of particles and lay the foundations of statistical distributions. When appropriate, I have tutored my colleagues in various topics in discrete mathematics such as set theory, counting, and propositional logic. I have tutored through the National Honor Society.

Linear Algebra

I took and earned an B+ in MA 442, an honors-level (proof-based) linear algebra course at Boston University where I received my BA in mathematics.
In my physics studies I have extensively applied my knowledge of linear algebra to quantum and classical mechanics, where eigenfunctions of operators define the observed motion of our world. When appropriate, I have tutored my colleagues in various topics in linear algebra such as matrix inversion, Gram-Schmidt orthogonalization, and unitary transformations.

Physics

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Boston University with a BA in physics. I am now pursuing my PhD at Georgia Tech in physics with a concentration in nonlinear dynamics and turbulent fluids. During the last two years, I have been a teaching assistant for introductory physics classes and tutored students one-on-one on a weekly basis.

Best Teacher — Seriously, his explanations are clearer than any teacher I've ever had. He also poses questions that allow you to think for yourself and make those connections. I would definitely go to him if you ever need help in physics. ...
