About Tyler

Hello,

I am a PhD student at the University of Iowa with my Master's degree in Mathematics. My research field is low-dimensional topology (specifically Contact Topology) and aside from doing research, I am also a Teaching Assistant for the Mathematics department. I love the subject and enjoy helping others understand it. I started tutoring mathematics in high school so I have almost 10 years of background with the subject specifically.

For those seeking help with college math, as a T.A. for the University, I have firsthand knowledge of the work ethic required for success in a college course.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a tutoring session.

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.

Algebra 1

Currently, I am working on my PhD in Mathematics at the University of Iowa and have a Master's degree. I have had experience tutoring this subject for almost 10 years now. I started as a tutor in high school as part of a "Peer tutoring" program. I then worked as a math tutor for North Central College through my entire undergraduate education. Now, as a Teaching Assistant at the University of Iowa, I have had the privilege of being the supervising instructor for the course "College Algebra". Through this experience, I designed a lesson plan for the course, which includes constructing homework assignments and exams.
