Loyola University Chicago (Math)
Loyola University - Chicago, IL (Master's)
I'm a student pursuing my master's degree in mathematics at Loyola University. I am very passionate about math, and I think that learning math should be an exciting experience. I don't believe people when they tell me that they "just aren't a math person" and that they cannot learn the subject. That's ridiculous, you can learn anything you put your mind to. Let me help you master your subject.
I have tutored dozens of university students in subjects ranging from arithmetic to analysis, from pre-algebra to abstract algebra. I like to motivate the material by presenting the history of the subject so that the student can have some context as to *why* they would want to learn the topic. Often times, a student's difficulty in a math class is rooted in their lack of mastery of previous classes. I think it's important to find where their difficulties began and to review the necessary coursework so that they can succeed in their current class.

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.
I took an undergraduate level differential equations class at Loyola University Chicago during the Spring 2013 semester and passing with an A. I am skilled with the standard analytical techniques for finding solutions to differential equations as well as with several numerical techniques. I have privately tutored Loyola students in the subject.
I took an undergraduate level linear algebra course 15 months ago at Loyola University Chicago and passed with a solid A. I have since learned a great deal more linear algebra by studying multiple texts and taking a course in representation theory of finite groups. I think that an emphasis should be placed on the abstract concepts (vector spaces, linear transformations, eigenvectors/values) as well as the purely computational aspects (matrix operations, Gauss-Jordan elimination, finding specific and homogeneous solutions to a linear system).
